Evangelism Workbook 1 Cover

NEW Revitalizing Evangelism: Workbook Series



Is evangelism a lost cause? Or do we have opportunities to find new alignment with the work of the Holy Spirit as we share the gospel with a lost and hurting world?

These are questions we’re asking ourselves as we prepare to gather in Orlando in March 2023 for a discussion about what it means to reach out to our friends, neighbors, colleagues, and communities with the grace, peace, and love of Jesus during this season.

Are you (or is someone you know):

  • Wondering how best to reach the lost?
  • Curious about what other church leaders are doing to share the gospel?
  • Ready to develop new strategies to engage your team in the work of reaching out?

This workbook, the first in a 5-part series, will lead you through a discovery process designed to help you better understand both your own current posture toward evangelism, as well as the challenges and opportunities we all face in evangelizing the lost in 2022, 2023, and beyond.

The PDF includes guidance from evangelism experts Dr. Rick Richardson (Professor of Evangelism and Leadership, Wheaton College) and Dave Ferguson (Pastor, Community Christian Church & CEO, Exponential).

Interactive question and answer spaces allow you to capture your thoughts in the document, on your favorite device.

Join us in Orlando March 6-9, 2023 to continue this important conversation.
