Fate saw a need to reach out to people which may have been turned off and/or turned away by the customary methodology in some churches of Christ. He is often heard to say, "We are reaching out to those whom others in our fellowship may miss." This movement is not anti-establishment but is instead pro evangelistic. As the apostle Paul said in I Corinthians 9:22, � "Among the weak in faith I become weak like one of them, in order to win them. So I become all things to all people, that I may save some of them by whatever means are possible."� So don't be surprised at the usage of drama, praise teams, immediate prayer, and other methods to help people become fully functioning followers of Christ.
