OIKOS Evangelism.
OIKOS Evangelism is a relational evangelism. OIKOS is a Greek word found in the New Testament referring to the people one lives, works and meets in one’s own daily life. The OIKOS is formed of four categories, as illustrated in the diagram on the other side. More specifically, with the word OIKOS, we refer to the lost person – or the furthest from Jesus and His Church – among our OIKOS List.
