To provide motivation, information, and the practical "how-to's" of personal and church evangelism. The emphasis is upon enabling delegates to more confidently and successfully enjoy the blessings of reaching out to spiritually lost people and seeing them come to faith in Christ.
This training will be very helpful for all church workers and church members. Sunday school teachers, children's club leaders, and those who go on church visitation will especially benefit. Those who have never shared the Gospel previously will be encouraged as they use the seminar material.
Saturday - 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
For best results, each church should be represented by a group of people who are normally involved in various levels of church leadership. We will be involved in hands-on ministry planning as groups from each church.
