NEW TRAINING TO MAKE EVANGELISM EASY
A new outreach initiative called Casting Your Nets was launched at our Good News Day in Salford earlier this year.
Casting Your Nets is a training programme that makes
evangelism easy for everyone. The
brainchild of Outreach UK Director Trevor Dickerson, it is a partnership between Outreach UK,
Good News evangelistic newspaper and gospel booklet publisher Bridge-Builders.
Trevor says: "Casting Your Nets is an evangelism training course that makes outreach simple for all church members. Evangelism has too often been the ministry of ‘the Few’ rather than every individual Christian. Casting Your Nets shows that this doesn’t need to be so. The practical training we offer equips every church member to share their own faith in Jesus Christ. But we not only equip Christians with the know-how of outreach, but also show them how to use some of the most effective materials."
Those materials are Good News itself and gospel booklets by Bridge-Builders. Good News is an excellent give-away for starting conversations and Bridge-Builders' gospels make a great follow-up for people who show an interest. 'Love is the Bridge', for example, combines the gospel of John (NIV) with a simple explanation of how the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ bridge the gulf between us and God.
Casting Your Nets equips and resources ordinary Christians to meet Jesus' call to 'cast your net' on the right side of the boat - where the fish are.
