Openwater Church: A Focus on Evangelism


Openwater Church, based in Odessa, Florida, knows that evangelism is the first step to building a solid foundation in their church community, as it’s a key part of sustaining a thriving faith group. There are multiple elements of evangelism Openwater takes very seriously, standing on the following four tenets:


• Personal evangelism, meaning spreading the news to your family, friends, coworkers, and acquaintances that Openwater is a community focused on healing and uplifting those in need. This includes the use of invitation cards, sharing personal testimonies and more.


• Servant evangelism, which includes performing simple acts of kindness with the people you come into contact with, like volunteering or buying someone’s coffee.


• Marketing evangelism, meaning using numerous innovative platforms to grab people’s attention and inspire them to come to a church service, including real estate signs, post card deliveries, phone calls, banners, and t-shirts.


• Missions evangelism, focusing on the church’s context in the world and how to best reach out to those both near and far.


Openwater Church offers numerous supports, including the OWC Food Pantry, and supports numerous causes in the community, including the Tampa Bay Baptist Association, Christmas Angel Tree, Metropolitan Ministries, Florida Baptist Children’s Home, Saving Grace Ministries Tampa, and more.
