Follow-up is one of the most important aspects of the evangelism process. It does not end with the mere distribution of a short tract, a brief prayer of assurance, and then a happy hug. Those won to Christ must enter into an on-going process of discipleship. The goal of an immediate follow-up plan is to provide the church with a workable process that will equip it to follow-up, assimilate, and incorporate those who make a decision for Christ into the life and ministry of the church.
