From surveying my readers, there are two major challenges to personal evangelism
- When is the right time to share my faith?
- How and where do I start a conversation?
You probably know the feelings of fear and nervousness surrounding this “moment”
- Will I mess up?
- What if I get it wrong?
- Am I forcing my belief on someone else?
- Will I be perceived as rude and obnoxious?
I’ve recorded a study course to help you overcome some of those fears and help you answer those two main questions.
It is really geared at helping you have more natural conversations with people who want to know about your faith.
Where does this Evangelism Training Course fit in our church?
If your church currently has evangelism programs, you might ask how does our approach to evangelism training fit into the evangelism work of the local congregation?
Many churches might have different program expressions for evangelism, for example
- an Alpha course,
- community service ministries like a food pantry or tutoring,
- or small groups that help seekers search for God.
Within in these program expressions, there will naturally be many opportunities for faith sharing conversation with spiritually hungry people.
For instance when Jesus sent the disciples out two by two to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom of God, He gave very specific instructions as to what they were to do.
This was the “program” (Luke 10:1-16) which took into account the needs and circumstances of the people.
But in the midst of the program, the Holy Spirit was moving to heal the sick, cast out demons, empower their preaching of the kingdom of God, and to provide un-programmed opportunities for witness.
This was evangelism, taking place as they were listening to the guidance for the Holy Spirit.
Have More Natural Conversations
The focus of this course is conversation skills, particularly on noticing the right time to have a pretty normal conversations about your faith.
When we cooperate with the Holy Spirit at the given moment of the conversation, evangelism is pretty easy
If your congregation doesn’t have an evangelistic expression, this is a great place to start training your members in how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in personal evangelism.
