John RW Stott
Pioneer Outreach Worker
Today on Partakers Podcasts, we are looking back on the life of one of the most influential leaders of the Christian Church in the 20th Century. 27th April 2021 was the centenary of his birth. That leader, was John Stott. Come on in!
G'day and welcome to Partake! Tonight I want to give a reflection somebody who is indeed a servant of the Lord and took great delight in all of Scripture. That person, is John RW Stott. By necessity, this is just a very brief introduction of the life of Reverend John Stott, and I concentrate mainly on his role as an evangelist. John Stott holds that he is more "an activist than a thinker", which is certainly evident in his ministry as a pioneer outreach worker. From the evidence of his life, we can see that has indeed fulfilled this thought.
Together we look briefly at:
His life and ministry
Being a pioneering outreach worker
His outreach theology
A lesson to be heeded
John Stott's life exemplifies radical outreach and innovation, blended with a desire to serve Jesus Christ as Lord. He is truly one of the twentieth centuries master servants of Jesus Christ. To the staff and many members of the congregation of All Souls Langham Place down through the years, he is simply known as "Uncle John". He is unique in the Anglican church in that he has always been associated with the one church throughout his life and ministry. As we have seen here briefly, he was certainly one of them, and it is all to the glory of God that He raised up his servant, Uncle John.

The Reason I am a Christian!
The Apostle John, writing:
"We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life." 1 John 5:9-12
Today I share the reasons I am a Christian, a follower of Christ. Come and hear my story!
