In-Person Training

Comprehensive personal evangelism training through weekend outreach initiatives.

How does evangelism & outreach work in a socially-distant, virtual world?

People are still searching for hope, security, and peace. Opportunities are abounding for people to hear the Good News.

Change is accelerating which is causing congregations to adapt in their outreach strategies. Personal evangelism is rising in its importance to spread the Word.

With those changes in mind, we're adapting our in-person training experience and outreach initiatives to help our members engage, invite, and proclaim the gospel. Here's how.


Initiative Goals

Every Praise and Proclaim outreach initiative is designed around a consistent set of goals. Hover or tap below to learn more.

Member Training

Members will be trained to comfortably gives reasons for the hope they have in Christ to anybody the Lord places in their life.

Follow Up Participation

Increase lay participation in follow up activities with prospects.

Digital Evangelism

Enhance a congregation’s on-line presence by incorporating digital evangelism training.

Online Community

Combine on-site training with supplemental on-line instruction.

Build Momentum

Cultivate long-term relationships with each congregation by providing additional training and organization through ongoing consulting.

Onsite Training

Preparing members to proclaim the gospel in everyday experiences.

Members will learn to utilize our evangelism methodology for their friends, neighbors, and family members. During the evening training, members will engage in a meaningful training exercise called “speed witnessing.”

Churches are discovering that there is an online audience who are viewing archived messages or watching streamed worship services. Churches will learn how to take full advantage of this new paradigm by conducting a digital evangelism campaign. Pastors will produce short messages on the church home page and members will learn how to engage and invite their community both in-person and online.


Outreach Initiative Experience

Providing a meaningful experience for members to immediately put their training into action is still a fundamental part of our evangelism training.

Right now, it’s important for members to feel safe while still engaging people in their community.

The on-site evangelism experience will include:

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming to church and teaching Zion Lutheran Church how to bring Church to the people!

COVID-19 has so many in our community holed up inside their homes and as we found they are lonely, hurting and fearful. They are also yearning to hear Jesus loves them and there is a place they can come to hear his encouraging message."
