I just found out that Chris Walker will be doing a workshop in National Capital in February 2010.
For those who don’t know me, I was on your staff for 8 years doing church development, and now I consult all over the country.
I am excited to hear that Chris will be in your midst. He and I were both key note speakers at a national event a little over a year ago.
I was impressed with Chris’ combination of experience and knowledge and how well he invites his listeners in to the ideas he shares.
He has lots of good stories to help you connect with what he is trying to explain. He will offer you practical help and even leave you with action steps you can take home.
I am convinced that all of us, no matter our theological stripe, need to reclaim evangelism as part of our ministry. There is a lot of research out there that shows that Presbyterians have tended to abandon evangelism (for a variety of reasons). While you don’t have to become Billy Graham, or take on a style that does not fit for you, but I do believe you (and I) need to become better at faith sharing again. Chris will help you do that.
“”Practical” and “usable” resources.
Chris Walker is characterized by these two descriptive words. Chris has been gifted to resource believers under the Holy Spirit’s leadership to fulfill the Great Commission through usable evangelistic resources.
He effectively communicates ways to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in non-threatening ways.
In addition, his focus is on edifying the local body of believers through hospitality, evangelism and mission participation. I highly commend him and his ministry to you.” December 8, 2009,

“One of the best sites I have found on evangelism. There are more “nuggets” of information on that site than I could read in one sitting. While exploring his site, I felt like a kid in a candy store filled with excellent information on evangelism and church growth.”
– Eric Hoey,
Evangelism and Church Growth Director
“This site is the best site in equipping for personal evangelism I have seen.”
