This table may also provide some key questions to help evaluate the
communication process as well as the outcome of it. The concept of
HEART language is intended to help people ask key questions in the
process of defining the goals, tools, type of content and methods
suitable for communicating the gospel to a new generation. Ministers,
missionaries and others working with Generation X people will find it
useful to ask questions like these:
“Does the ministry communicate in a holistic way, and not only to the mind?”
“Are we honest about the purposes of our activities?”
“Are we promoting healing, between God and man, humans and nature as well as between human beings?”
“Are we communicating the good news (Greek: evangelion) in a creative way?”
“Are we sharing about experiences in our life with Christ in a passionate way?”
“Are we being authentic and do we promote accountability?”
“In what ways are people encouraged to experience reconciliation in Christ?”
