A spirit-led movement equipping and empowering every member to reach their community for Christ
Indiana Conference Evangelism Training
The Indiana Conference in partnership with It Is Written (IIW) television ministry held a state-wide evangelism training at Timber Ridge Camp in Indiana on April 9-13. “Practical Evangelism, A Life-Changing Journey” was attended by 43 members who received group and one-on-one instruction by Yves Monnier, Evangelism Director for It Is Written, and Jack Phillips, It Is Written Bible Worker. Finding and Following up on Interests, Giving Bible Studies, Tools Every Disciple Needs, and Creating Lay Evangelism Teams were a few of the topics that were presented.
On Thursday and Friday afternoons two-person teams went door-to-door in Spencer, Indiana, and surrounding towns. Putting into practice the tools and training they received was well received by those at the doors. At the end of Friday afternoon 64 Bible study interests were realized. The Spencer and Ellettsville churches had Bible study teams in place, ready to follow-up on these interests.
This training was in conjunction with a state-wide evangelism movement called Ignite Indiana. As these newly trained lay evangelism teams go out into their own communities, the interests will be followed-up by local volunteer lay Bible workers. The strategy is to have as many individuals as possible ready for state-wide reaping meetings scheduled for the spring of 2020.
Future one-day trainings will take place in the fall of 2019 with IIW and NADEI (North American Division Evangelism Institute). A final three-day training will be taking place with It Is Written in January of 2020 in the Indy Metro area. The Indiana Conference is thankful to have these trainings provided by IIW and NADEI as they are looking forward to the great harvest God has in store.
