Insights on How Jesus Shared the Good News, Course 2

Course Summary

This is the second of three courses that can be taken as part of our ShareWord Global Evangelism Certificate. The courses can be taken in any order, though we recommend the order they are presented in.

This Certificate is designed to prepare you share your faith boldly, without fear, in any situation, publicly and privately. Being intentional and relational in reaching the lost is the focal point. Moving from theory to practical engagement is key to sharing your faith. It is about making evangelism part of your DNA and part of your everyday routine.

This course will identify how Jesus shared the good news, how He related to different people, the claims He made, the miracles He performed, and what you can learn about His character. Knowing how Christ interacted gives you the clues and foundation to approach your relationships when sharing the good news. The goal of the course is to encourage you to engage with those God puts in your path.

Practical Tools for Sharing Your Faith, Course 3

Course 3 Introduction 

Welcome to the ShareWord Global Evangelism Certificate courses, “Everyday Evangelism That’s Intentional and Relational.” This material seeks to encourage you to make outreach and evangelism part of your daily routine. This course is offered to you as a personal opportunity to grow. The lessons can be used as personal study, devotionals, or for small groups.

This overview course complements our ShareWord Global Evangelism Certificate workshops. We know it can be easy to leave a workshop or training with a lot of good ideas, but ongoing training leads us to take action in our personal life.

Think of these studies as an adventure. May it change your thinking and daily actions in such a way that you not only become aware of people who are in need of a relationship with Christ, but you engage with people in a deliberate and active way. In essence, evangelism is the process of loving one another because Christ first loved us.

Everyday Evangelism That’s Intentional and Relational, Course 1

ShareWord Global Evangelism Certificate Course 1

What holds you back from talking about your faith? If you’re like most of us, it’s probably fear. This three-part certificate course was designed with that in mind. Through the journey of this certificate, it is our hope that you will see that you can have a powerful witness for Christ, and that it’s easier than you might think.

Following the model of relational evangelism, we will take examples from Jesus’ life and learn how to apply it to our own relationships and routines. The call is for every believer to introduce people to Jesus; there is an urgency to the Great Commission. Be encouraged by the simplicity of sharing the gospel, emboldened to move past fear, and equipped with practical tools for initiating faith conversations.
