There are billions on Earth who have never had the opportunity to hear and respond to the Good News. God longs for relationship with each one! The School Of Evangelism trains you to take part in what God is doing in the nations with practical tools for evangelism and church planting. We build on the foundation of the DTS, so that growing your relationship with God will increase your ability to be His witness to the ends of the earth. We seek to know the message, be the message and take the message!
Throughout the school, you will grow in your understanding of the nature, character and ways of God and the content of the gospel. You have many opportunities to develop skills in evangelism and overcome fear, enabling you to communicate the gospel clearly and accurately in any cultural setting. During our lecture phase topics include: Jesus-style evangelism, the Kingdom of God, world religions and sharing cross-culturally, church planting, and the Holy Spirit and power evangelism.
The best way to learn how to share about Jesus is to get out there and do it! As you do so, you will likely encounter people whose difficult, complex questions which stop them from following Jesus. “If there is an all-powerful, all-loving God, why is there so much suffering in the world?” “How can you be sure that Jesus is the only way?” Together we can find answers to these questions and learn how to communicate in ways people will understand.
You will also explore how to share the gospel with people of all religions and worldviews. Developing cultural awareness is key to effectively doing evangelism in any cultural setting. As people respond to the gospel, the best way to train and disciple them is to wisely place new followers of Jesus with like-hearted believers on the journey of growth. With this in mind, you will also gain tools for discipleship and strategic multiplication.
Your lecture phase is followed by 11 weeks of outreach in Europe and other locations. Following Jesus’ instruction in Mark 16:15-18, you will go into the world, preach the gospel and people will be saved. As you step out in obedience to what God speaks, He will move through you to bring people to faith. We see in scripture that Jesus has given us power and authority to heal the sick and counter demonic activity. During outreach, you will have opportunities see how this power and spiritual authority help bring the Kingdom of God. As you walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, people will be healed and set free. As people put their faith in Christ, we seek to develop community with a view to seeing more people impacted, so that a church is established.
For the world to be reached, the whole Body of Christ needs to be involved. You will have many opportunities to teach and encourage fellow Christians in the area of evangelism as well. As we do evangelism together, you will be able to pass on the skills and knowledge you have learned by going with them to engage the unchurched. This helps spark lasting change in their communities.
After outreach, you can choose to take on a further two year missions commitment focussed on church planting in a European city. This will happen in partnership with a church planting movement based out of Norway. There are also many other international locations for church planting with YWAM that can be considered as well. Evangelism is needed everywhere!
