EVANGELISM BOOTCAMP

TUES 10 — THURS 12TH MAY 2016

The church in the UK has seen dramatic decline over the last 20 years with it being estimated that 97% of the UK population have little or no connection with the church. Those in their 20s and 30s have been called the ‘missing generation’ because they have left the church. In this landscape the calling still stands on the church to proclaim and demonstrate the kingdom of God in the world today, to lead people to faith, and to transform communities and nations. On the Evangelism Bootcamp you will grow in the confidence of the gospel and be equipped for God’s call on your life, to preach the good news to all generations.

Sessions will cover:

  • The cultural landscape for evangelism
  • The character of the evangelist
  • The distinct calling of the evangelist
  • The theology of the evangelist
  • Practical training in apologetics
  • Regaining and retaining confidence in the gospel
  • What’s working? (A swapshop/ marketplace for ideas)
  • Evangelism: signs and wonders

Trainers: Gavin Galver (Director of Mission at the Evangelical Alliance), Kiera Phyo (Head of Tearfund’s Youth & Emerging Generation team) and Dave Keeper (discipler & missionary, Bath )

Sessions will cover:

  • Storytelling
  • Visual and vocal communication – body language and voice
  • Creating impact
  • The elevator testimony
  • Getting attention – and keeping it
  • Structure
  • Breathing and vocal support
  • Having presence and authority
  • The hero’s journey in preaching
  • The anatomy of an effective talk
  • The brain – and why it matters in preaching
  • Coaching and feedback
