Helping Christians conquer fears of evangelism.
We partner with congregations to help train members and leaders how to comfortably and confidently proclaim the gospel.
Many Christians feel ill-equipped and intimidated to witness the gospel. Some are simply terrified. We take the mirror away in our training and instead, direct people to look at the cross and trust his promises.
Many Christians tend to be reluctant witnesses because they don’t know what to say or how to begin. We provide a comfortable approach that allows Christians to lovingly engage people and share a short, powerful message.
An important component of our training is to immediately provide a well-organized and meaningful opportunity for Christians to put their training into action.
God's Word Works

Evangelism is far more about trusting God’s promises than about ourselves. One of the biggest promises God gives us is that God’s Word works. Our training emphasizes the power of God’s Word instead of our ability to proclaim it.
