Conquer Fears

Conquer 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.

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.
