A Class Half Full

| 8 Comments

Staying true to the pattern, 50% made it through to the end of our evangelism class, “Sharing Your Faith Without Fear.” That’s 16 ready to do the work of an evangelist! Pray that they will.

Our next class starts on Wednesday, July 8!

My teaching notes and student notes—over 100 pages of material—are available free of charge, except for postage. Just leave a comment if interested.

  1. Praise God for the new laborers!!

    Yes, the 50% rule is alive and well. I have taught the WOTM basic training course 6 times and that is the result I have gotten every single time except once…. One class started with 22 and finished with 18.

    At first I thought it was me……then I spoke to others around the country who had the same fall away rate……it always seems to be around lesson 4 and 5 too…….

  2. I typical only get a 3-4 people drop out in a class typically around 30+ people. I am going on my seventh year of teaching WOTM material and never had such a large drop out rate. My first class was just Hells Best Kept Secret VHS tape with just Ray (kirk wasn’t around yet) and only had a handful of people. There is so much more material that we cover that the class is now 3hrs long and this fall (2009) will be teaching 3 classes at 3 different churches….GOD IS GOOD!

    Steve, we started using your idea with the stuffed animals from the Dollar Store at our last Prayer Station and it worked great. Some pics are at http://www.goodmessengers.org/prayerstation.htm It is a wonderful way to get the kids over and while we are witnessing to the kids another member is sharing with the parents. We have a Prayer Station event at a fair starting tomorrow and going through Sunday and we will have some there as well. We staple tracts to them. I was also wondering if you have your notes on a file that you can email? May God continue to shine on what you do!

  4. Outstanding!!! I would love to have your notes. Tried to find WOTM “Sharing Your Faith Without Fear” in my Lake Jackson, Texas area with no luck (anyone know of any around here?). Thanks for your notes offer.

  5. Well, better than 2 percent.

    I thought I had read everything there is to read from Spurgeon, but I never saw that quote at the bottom of the shoes picture before. HILARIOUS! What a guy!

  6. Hey Steve,
