The Personal Evangelism Team exists to help local churches educate, encourage and equip its members to intentionally pray for and engage their family, friends, neighbors and others with the good news of the Gospel. This is accomplished through church & community assessments, consultations, creating resources, providing training and motivation, and formulating comprehensive strategies for engagement.
We can provide a comprehensive demographic report for churches to better understand who lives in their communities. Before you can reach them it helps to know what they are. These reports can be generated for a zip code or 3, 5, or 10 mile radius of the church address. By having a comprehensive portrait of the community, churches can began to develop strategies for engagement.
We can provide training for Prayer-walking, which is simply praying in the very places that we expect God to bring forth change. It is intercessory rather than devotional. This is praying beyond our own concerns and focusing prayer on behalf of neighbors and communities.
Prayer-Walking is usually non-confrontational: Friends or family stroll two-by-two through their own neighborhoods, schools and work places, praying as they go. It is praying with hearts, ears and eyes open. God will stir up burdens and reveal needs to those who sincerely pray.
There are some occasions when the prayers should be demonstrative, but usually it’s being on the scene without making a scene. While prayer walkers usually walk and pray unnoticed, they quickly become aware of the realities and needs of their neighbors.
Tool Box Training
There are a variety of Evangelism tools and resources that already exist. Our main approach is to try to be knowledgeable of those tools and how to use them, and to educate and train others in how to best use them. We also create tools and resources where one does not exist to help address a specific need.
Online Apologetics Training
The Stand Firm Apologetics Course is designed to 1) strengthen Christians’ faith by presenting compelling evidence for the truths of Christianity and 2) equip Christians to share and defend the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Stand Firm is a sixteen-lesson video-driven introductory apologetics course that may be used for group or individual study. The individual videos are each about half an hour long and should be viewed prior to answering the discussion questions in the study guide. Discussion leaders and individual students may research the topics by reading the recommended books and visiting the recommended web sites.
