Go, Therefore: Nursing Home

by | Jul 12, 2019 | Evangelism, Missions

“Go, Therefore” posts are quick tips to help Christians live lives of evangelism.

Nursing Home Visits

Visiting a nursing home or assisted living facility is a great way to minister the gospel! In many cases, you may simply walk around and knock on doors, and people will be happy to have a visitor to speak to. It would be good to let the folks working there know that you are a Christian minister who is there to try to reach people, and always be respectful of people who don’t want to talk to you.

Calling ahead and finding out policies for visitors shouldn’t deter you from actively trying to reach people in your community who live in a facility. Many of these people will have a Christian background so you will likely run into folks who were falsely converted, giving you a chance to re-iterate the gospel they may think they believe. You may also find a new friend as you share the gospel with someone who already believes and is simply pleased to hear it afresh!

Nursing Home Ministry

Consider asking the admin staff if you can start a regular meeting. I do not suggest calling it “church” or performing communion, but come up with a regular date and time that you will faithfully show up, assist people to the meeting room, and then sing songs of worship and bring a Bible message to them. For those of you who don’t get to regularly preach, this is an excellent way to get to prepare and deliver sermons. And don’t forget to bring little children with you—it will teach the little ones to love and care for elders, and the folks there will be so excited to see young people!
