Get Beyond Awkward!
Evangelism training with my friend Beau Crosetto
Get Ready For Evangelism Training!
The life of a disciple is a life of training. It’s like hitting the gym to get stronger. It’s like practicing on a musical instrument to not just get better, but to get fluid in our playing.
The number one problem area for Christians seems to be evangelism. We see how important it is in the life of the church. We even know how high a premium God places on it in His Word. We see how clearly Jesus expects it! But that doesn’t help our feelings of inadequacy, of helplessness. So we shrink back and think either “I am a terrible Christian,” or “I am just not called to it.” Neither of those is true!
Don’t despair! For some time, I have been saying that we are going to have evangelism training for people! And we are! Mark your calendars and get ready!
Tuesday May 18 at 5:30 p.m. will be the first of four quarterly online evangelism training modules with Beau Crosetto, the director of InterVaristy for the State of Lousiana. I have known Beau for 5 years or so, and I think he is the best person to teach evangelism to people. I have been to a number of his sessions at the Exponential Conference, and I was pleased to have him come to Morehead 3 times to teach us about evangelism. We saw real fruit with people equipped to share their faith with friends, family, and coworkers.
We are planning to have no more than 25 in each session; if there are more people who sign up, we will have a second module to keep the numbers in each session low so that we can interact with Beau. We will have Beau come in person at some point next year. If you have ever felt any hesitation sharing your faith because you don’t feel confident, don’t know what to say, aren’t sure how to start the conversation… then this is the training for you! I can’t wait for you to meet Beau! Cost for the online training is $20 per session. In order to prepare, get Beau’s book, Beyond Awkward. Check out his website, beyondawkward.com. Included in the workshop is access to Beau’s online video training—17 different modules on evangelism. Please let me know if you want to attend!
