So many Christians feel nervous, guilty or awkward when they think about sharing their faith with friends and family.
It doesn’t have to be this way. You-whoever you are-can be empowered for evangelism that is faithful, compelling and relational. Empowered will leave ordinary Christians not only wanting to share their faith, but knowing how to talk about Jesus in their normal lives and everyday conversations.
Becky Pippert and her husband Dick have spent the past 13 years doing evangelism training in churches and at conferences on almost every continent. Empowered is the fruit of all these years of working right around the world, of motivating and equipping ordinary Christians to share their faith with those around them.
In the introduction Becky writes:
“Never has there been a greater need to share Christ with the world (starting with our own neighbors)-yet never have believers seemed more ill equipped. It is imperative that we know how to effectively communicate the gospel. We need to get beyond one-size-fits-all techniques. We need to learn to communicate the truth in a way that is also loving. Yet we need to remember, even as we seek to show Christ’s compassionate love, still to share Christ’s gospel truth.”
Each session of Empowered opens with a short introduction from Becky before moving to an interactive group Bible study grounded in God’s word. This is followed by a short talk by Becky on the DVD. Becky’s warm, personable style blends timeless biblical truth with tried and tested techniques-as well as plenty of funny and encouraging real life stories. After the talk there’s time to work through the practical implications in discussion groups, before turning to prayer.
Empowered would make a great basis for a church weekend away or day conference, or can be used in home groups and small groups week by week.
All you need to assess the course and get started is the DVD Leader’s kit, which includes:
– Member’s handbook
– Leader’s guide
– Uncovering the Life of Jesus
