Title:Methods of Evangelism at ISU
Author(s):Collins, Tom
Abstract:This project investigates the different methods of evangelism used at ISU, what religious groups hope to accomplish by employing these methods, and whether these groups look for specific qualities in their members. On the basis of interviews, the study finds that the main method of evangelism is word of mouth to get people attend meetings. Flyers are also used but far less successfully. People bring in their friends, often from their dorms.
