Evangelistic Equipping

April 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until May 2, 2024

Statistics indicate that fewer Christians engage in evangelism. While some suggest people have lost confidence in the Gospel, others would argue the problem lies in how evangelism is taught. We have lost confidence, not in the Gospel but in the techniques for sharing the Gospel. Many pastors feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. They either teach the techniques they don’t believe work and feel guilty, or they feel guilty because they don’t teach evangelism at all. Many believe the old models of evangelism are no longer effective, which makes it difficult to know how to train others.

Those who do endeavor to equip their people report that they find it just plain hard! It is slow, frustrating, and difficult to measure. It takes time and intentionality, and it is not easily controlled. The attempts that are made feel unsuccessful, and many feel they are not doing a good job.

This training will provide an evaluative framework to help you assess your evangelistic equipping efforts. It will help you to recognize gaps you may need to fill, find distortions you will want to correct, and provide a clearer path forward toward helping your church become more evangelistically faithful.

Join Merv Budd, equipping evangelist on the Missional Initiatives Team, in this four-session, 60-minute webinar training. The sessions will include:

  1. April 11 – Understanding the three quadrants of evangelism.
  2. April 18 – Understanding the three quadrants of equipping.
  3. April 25 – Understanding the distortions of excess and neglect.
  4. May 2 – Understanding your congregations needs and developing a way forward.

 
There are a limited number of spaces available, so confirm your participation as soon as possible.
