The ONE-Focus allowed our whole church to get on the same page for an entire year.

Mark Fenn

Mission Pastor, West Monroe

I like One Focus because it’s simple – every member intentionally reaching out to one unsaved or unchurched person during one year. The response we’ve had thus far is amazing.

Phillip Robertson

Senior Pastor, Philadelphia

Each week more and more introduce their friends and neighbors to me that are their “ones”. One Focus really fits our church.

ONE Focus Training is completely FREE.

It is our mission to bring the ONE Focus initiative to as many churches as possible. That is why we are making our comprehensive training completely free for you and your church. Let's Get Started!

Most church leaders have a desire and passion for mobilizing their church for evangelism.

But they do not have the plan or coaching needed. Our ONE Focus team has developed the plan and provide the coaching.

This is an example module from the ONE Focus PreLaunch Training.

 Our congregation’s response to the ONE Focus knocked the top out of our expectations! Needless to say, all the staff is elated that God is moving through our church, motivating and exciting our members with the ONE FOCUS initiative. Should you do the ONE Focus? Absolutely! It is a non-confrontational missional outreach. It equips the people to engage one un-churched person by sharing the love of Jesus with them through developing a true relationship that demonstrates Christ- likeness. It’s doable by everyone.

Steve James

Senior Pastor, Lake Charles

ONE Focus is clearly a movement of God in our church. Our members are praying and reaching out to their ONEs and God is providing opportunities. ONE Focus transforms your church from programs to vision for living a missional evangelistic life. With the ONE Focus initiative and Scotty and his team’s leadership, and much prayer and commitment, we’ve had a tremendous response. Will you love one for a year?   

Cyle Clayton

Senior Pastor, Many

The ONE Focus has brought a renewed spirit of anticipation that permeates throughout our church family. We’re seeing people come to faith in Christ every week.  We heartily recommend Scotty, Mike, and the rest of the Life Catalyst team.

Ken Schroeder

Senior Pastor, Mandeville

 ONE Focus ignited our church. As a pastor I’ve never experienced the commitment our people now have to doing their parts in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

Brad Marchman

Senior Pastor, Macon

 I am so excited about the One Focus. In it God has given us a very clear plan for evangelism. The ONE Focus has moved our people out of their comfort zones to love and disciple their friends and to lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Kevin Cottrell

Pastor of Missions/Evangelism, Broken Arrow

ONE Focus is something your church should consider doing.  Scotty Sanders and Mike Walker have developed this from the ground up. It helps your church to focus like a laser in reaching people for Christ. I encourage you to take a look. You won’t work with finer people.

Dr. David Uth

Senior Pastor, Orlando

Scotty has put together a new evangelism initiative called ONE FOCUS that has revolutionized many churches throughout Louisiana. Personal friends of mine have told me how great ONE FOCUS has been for the church. He wants to get it going in Texas and I told him I wanted to help.

Jack Harris

Evangelism

One Focus has allowed Summer Grove Baptist Church to rally around the Great Commission and to give each member a way to reach out to another unchurched individual. I would strongly suggest that you consider One Focus for your church as you join me in praying for a Great Awakening.

Dr. Rod Masteller

Senior Pastor, Summer Grove

Scotty wants to call the ONE Focus an initiative. He is right. ONE Focus encourages members to take the initiative to focus on someone who needs Christ. You can call it whatever you like but it changes the culture of the church and the hearts of the church members. It gives you a vision to rally around.

Dr. Charles Wesley

Senior Pastor, Jonesboro

Just recently I had a young teen age church member tell me, “I think my one is getting close to accepting Christ. God has already given me my next one.” As a pastor that’s exciting. We’ve had increases in  large Wednesday night attendance and our baptisms have more than doubled last year with the ONE Focus.

John Mark Little

Pastor

ONE Focus has been absolutely worth it. Our baptism are up 140% over last year because of our peoples commitment to ONE Focus

Lamar Huffman

Pastor, Sulfur

What an incredible year! Baptisms up over a previous year’s high. We had 116 commitments of faith on the closing Sunday of ONE Focus. Thank you for your encouragement and continued desire to see the lost come to know Jesus as Savior.

Greg Bath

Pastor, Lake Charles

The best aspect of ONE Focus is the simplicity of picking “one” and placing an emphasis on reaching that “one”, while still being sensitive and available for others as well. It’s not age specific, so all ages are able to participate in the Great Commission.

Bill Reed

Pastor, Ruston

Anything that can engage most all of the church in evangelism has to be good.  During the ONE Focus we saw baptisms rise over 700% compared to the previous year’s report.

Wayne Gray

Pastor, Ferriday

We saw the greatest improvements in children and youth departments with the ONE Focus. Both departments doubled in size. Wednesday night attendance jumped as well. It’s great to see the church so involved in Kingdom work. We’ve had great results with baptisms doubling our previous year.

Dominick Dicarlo

Pastor, Jena

The ONE Focus has kept our people focused on those that need to know Christ. The jump is a baptism speaks for its worthiness and Kingdom value. We baptized nine times the number of last year and the harvest isn’t over yet. 

Milton Wilson

Pastor, LeCompte
