Spring 2011 Evangelism Class Grads

| 5 Comments

An amazing thing happened last Thursday night. I believe a new record was set. I’m still in shock and awe…. Ten weeks ago thirty three people started my class, “Sharing Your Faith Without Fear.” On graduation night, twenty seven made it through, defying the the average 50% drop out rate. (See larger image here.)

I believe I know why only six people left the class instead of the normal sixteen. Here’s the reason:

Ten weeks allows people to grow into the notion that they can indeed share their faith; it’s not only for “evangelists.” They have time to dip their toes into the sometimes scary waters of witnessing. They have ample opportunity to listen to, think about and meditate on their call to “Go!” This also affords them a longer period in which to listen to “Hell’s Best Kept Secret” numerous times, as many of them did.

I was able to explain things more fully over 10 weeks and assigned homework that eased students into the  pool, whereas my six week course tossed them cannonball-like into the deep end.

I’m excited about the new name change I will be introducing for the next session: “Sharing Your Faith…Made Easy.” (You have to say it with a smile.)

If you’d like my new 10 week course including teaching notes and student notes, I will send you a hard copy in a binder and online access FREE OF CHARGE when you contact me by leaving a comment or emailing me at PastorSteveAtHope@yahoo.com

I hope you will enjoy the same success! God bless you!

  1. It’s also possible that people don’t know what they’re getting into, and this group was more “in tune” with your beliefs than the others. I don’t know where you draw your classes from, but it’s possible that the students were more receptive than average.

  2. Pastor Steve,

    I’m currently teaching 10 people using your old 6 week notes, and I have to say…wow! You really put a lot of work and thought into these notes. I have a script to teach from, and I’ve been very impressed at your thorough work. Thank you!!

  3. Pastor Steve,

    I would like to Thank The Lord for your tireless efforts and labor for God’s Glory. He has certainly used you to equip the Saints in the Ministry. The encouragement, exhortation and enthusiasm that you showed and passed onto the Class was a blessing.

    My Thanks also, goes out to Pastor Zac, ALL the Pastors, Elders, Deacons, Staff, the men that would setup the classroom, provide coffee, and ALL the Faithful Members of Hope Chapel.

    For anyone out there reading that has not taken this class, please take the time for this class. With 10 weeks, you will have plenty of time to learn and feel comfortable to pass out a tract, have a 1-2-1 conversation and some in our class even open air preached.

    Through Christ, you can do this, my fellow brother or sister. Trust in The Lord, He will give you the strength.

    To God Alone Be The Glory!!!
