Summary:

An introduction to the theology and practice of evangelism in contemporary North American society. We will look critically at different evangelistic practices in the light of biblical narratives of conversion, and consider how healthy evangelism is cultivated and lived out in the life of the Church through the building of personal relationships, teaching, preaching, outreach and worship. Students will be introduced to the writings of key thinkers and practitioners of evangelism while being challenged to develop their own ability to share the gospel with others and to cultivate churches that are evangelizing communities.
