Evangelism isn’t about knowing how to “sell Jesus” to others as much as it is about the conviction that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to heal lives and change the world. Once a person or congregation integrates that fundamental belief into their faith life, sharing that Good News becomes both effective and credible because it comes from the heart.
Evangelism for United Church Dummies will focus on the barriers that Mainline churches face in accepting that evangelism doesn’t violate our value system, as well as some concrete practices and techniques that allow it to percolate up in all aspects of the church’s life.
Saturday, September 12, from 9am-3pm at St. George's United Church (505 6th Street) in Courtenay.
There will be refreshments, but please bring a lunch as there will not be one provided to you.
Register using the form below.
