TRAINING TO MAKE
An outreach training initiative called Casting Your Nets is available to churches across the country.
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 Pocket Testament League.
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 a few enthusiasts rather than every individual Christian. Casting Your Nets shows how this can change. 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 the gospel booklet 'Love is the Bridge', published by the Pocket Testament League, which contains the gospel of John (NIV) and a simple explanation of how Jesus bridges the gulf between us and God. Good News is an excellent give-away for starting conversations and Love is the Bridge makes a great follow-up for people who show an interest.
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.
