I’m happy and disappointed.
I’m happy that about 17 students finished my latest evangelism class. I’m disappointed that we started with 31.
Despite the name of my class being “Sharing Your Faith Without Fear,” and that when students finish they have less fear when evangelizing, the sad fact is that people don’t finish because they are fearful. Here are the stats:
Usually, 30% drop out after the first class.
Usually, 50% drop out by the last class.
I figured out why. If you take a prayer class, at the end of the training you will know how to pray. At the end of a doctrines class, you will be a little smarter. But when you take an evangelism class, you actually have to evangelize those unsaved pagans.
And who wants to do that?
