The Changing Face of Evangelism and the Well-Being of the City focuses on motivation, theology, tools and training for conversational and comprehensive evangelism. This training is comprised of interactive sessions, experiential learning, self-discovery, and both mentoring and on-line community opportunities.
As our culture radically changes, old forms of evangelism can create an obstacle to the gospel – for the church planter, missional leader and marketplace Christian alike. Studies suggest that the general state of evangelism today is weak among followers of Jesus. An increasing number of pastors, leaders and church-planters have seen the need to bring good and effective evangelism thought, tools and motivation more broadly to the Church. Picture a growing movement in church after church of Jesus’ followers engaging in spiritual conversations regularly with non-believers where we live, work, learn and play!
