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 will 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, 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 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 be given tools for discipleship and strategic multiplication.
Your lecture phase is followed by 11 weeks of outreach, following Jesus’ instruction in Mark 16:15-18 to go into the world, preach the gospel and see people saved. Outreach locations vary from year to year, but often involve both local and international opportunities. 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 get to see how this power and spiritual authority help bring the Kingdom of God. Outreach includes opportunities such as one-on-one evangelism, public proclamation of the gospel, acts of kindness, home visits, Bible distribution, Bible studies, and more.
For the world to be reached, the whole Body of Christ needs to be involved. You will have opportunities to teach, encourage and mobilise fellow Christians in the area of evangelism as well. As you do evangelism together, you will be able to pass on the skills and knowledge you have learned as you engage the unchurched, with the hope that this will spark lasting change in their communities.
Your final week is spent back at YWAM Perth, celebrating what God has done and getting ready for all He has ahead. The SOE can equip you to confidently communicate Christ in whatever settings God leads you to next!
