What's in Each Issue of Outreach Magazine?

Outreach magazine is committed to bringing you ideas, innovations and resources to help you reach your community and change the world.

Outreach features stories, research, insights and church-tested ideas to inspire, challenge and equip you in your mission to reach people far from God.



In each issue of Outreach magazine you will find:



We take the Pulse of outreach today as we report on what churches worldwide are doing to connect with their communities and put their faith in action. Pulse includes focused sections on cross-cultural, children’s, youth and seniors’ outreach efforts, plus the people profile, “Soulfires,” a personal story of the passion that ignites ministry.


In Ideas, we talk about church-tested ideas for seasonal and targeted ministries for any church, any size. The Ideas department includes features on “Retention” (how churches are closing the backdoor and integrating newcomers into the life of the church) and “Church Planting,” and profiles individuals and churches through “New Life” and “Small Church America.”


Voices brings a perspective From Outside the Church. “My Life, So Far” offers one person’s perspective on life, spirituality and the church, perhaps an author or media personality. “Mystery Visitor” reports on anonymous real visits to real churches. “The Question” takes you to the street, as random people respond to provocative questions.
