EVANGELISM TRAINING

This class provides volunteers with an overview of 3Story Evangelism and what it means to relationally share your faith. The second part of this training will help the participant learn how to effectively share the Roman Road to Salvation, which sums up the Good News of Jesus Christ. It is a collection of verses in Paul's letter to the Romans that clearly presents the background and basis of the Christian Faith.  In a simple, yet powerful method the Roman Road explains why we need salvation, how God provided salvation, how we can receive salvation, and what are the results of salvation. The third part of this training teaches how to effectively communicate your personal testimony as a follower of Jesus. This training is taught in the context of our ministry to unchurched youth.
