Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.

(Psalm 96:2)

What We Do

We help enhance gospel ministries by training church members how to comfortably and confidently proclaim the gospel.

Conquering Fears

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.

Gain Experience

An important component of our training is to immediately provide a well-organized and meaningful opportunity for Christians to put their training into action. We do that by going door-to-door to proclaim the gospel.

Simplified Approach

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.

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.

How We Can Help

Praise and Proclaim Ministries partners with pastors and assists congregations by training members how to comfortably and confidently share the gospel message with others.

God commissions all believers to go into the world and verbally proclaim the message of salvation. Our training helps Christians discover that evangelism is far more about trusting God’s promises than about ourselves. The main intent behind the outreach initiatives is to provide a pastor with a core group of members who are ready, willing, and equipped to continue to boldly proclaim the gospel in their community. We refer to this as outreach momentum.
