4 x Four Evangelistic Training – helps each Christian leader and lay person to identify those in their sphere of relationships who do not know Christ personally by encouraging them to pray and intercede on behalf of each person identified. Participants are asked to invest in a relationship with each person on our list while inviting each friend, relative, neighbor and associate to an event held at the church where they hear a Gospel presentation. Many churches have used this method very successfully. No cost to attend.
Apologetics (basics) – Apologetics is the study of how to give reasons for our Christian hope. 1 Peter 3:15 reminds us to always be ready to make a defense for the hope that lies within us. This course will seek to constitute a rational basis for believing in Christian theism, by answering the objections and critiques of other worldviews. The cost of the class is $50 per person, which covers all printed materials.

Understanding Islam and Gospel Ministry to Muslims – will explain the theology, worldview, and culture of Muslims by teaching you about its founding, history, development, the prophet Muhammad, the Qur’an, the Hadith, the Five Pillars of Islam, Islamic Theology, and other key topics. The training then turns to effective gospel ministry to Muslims. You will learn to share the Gospel with Muslims in theologically and culturally sensitive ways as well as addressing the most common objections Muslims have to the gospel. The training schedule is flexible to meet the needs of your church through trainings such as one session, one weekend, or several weeks. The cost will vary depending on the training desired.
