Title
Using Behavioral Psychology to Encourage Personal Evangelism
Abstract

Principles from behavioral psychology may be utilized by the local church pastor to help motivate laymen toward personal evangelism. A series of four steps can be used to shape behavior, bringing the laymen closer and closer to the actual witnessing situation. Maximizing the outcomes through reinforcement must take place at each step. Desensitization may also be used for those laymen who have strong fears of the witnessing situation. By combining behavioral psychology with a strong spiritual focus, laymen may be helped to become effective soul winners.
