Summer Evangelism Training (S.E.T.)

All the departments at Gracepoint in Berkeley are going to be engaging in this great summer training course. If you are here for even a few weeks over the summer, please be sure to sign up to join a group!!

Description: Get trained in your heart, head and hands to be ready to evangelize to those around you!

When: Tuesday nights, 6/10-7/29, 8pm @ Northloop (for the month of June)

Lecture: This portion engages your heart as we go through Bill Hybelsʼ Just Walk Across the Room DVD curriculum and cover topics such as how to present your story in an engaging way and see how Pastor Hybels himself engages in personal relational evangelism.

Lab: Your intellect will be challenged as you get trained to address questions people have about God. We will be reading through Tim Keller’s The Reason for God and covering one topic per week. We want to become equipped to answer the tough questions seekers ask such as:

·         There can’t be just one true religion

·         How could a good God allow suffering?

·         How to approach questions on homosexuality, abortion, etc.

·         Christianity is a straightjacket

·         The church is responsible for so much injustice

·         Science has disproved Christianity

·         You can’t take the Bible literally

·         How can a loving God send people to hell

 

 

 

Discussion: Bring things down to your hands as we discuss next steps in ministering to those you are reaching out to, and spend time with your small group in prayer for one another.

Please sign up for Summer Evangelism Training by this weekend! We need to know who is participating so that we can form discussion groups.

**Even if you will not be attending for the entire duration of SET (due to mission trips, etc), please sign up still. Please come to the first meeting on 6/10 having read the 1st chapter of The Reason for God by Tim Keller.  For those of you away for the summer, we encourage you to read on your own and get trained along with us!

    To add to what Andy said, this is open to everybody — not to only Christians. I think this is a wonderful way to get to know more about Christianity. In addition, you’ll be able to meet with many (in other ministries) who share your own viewpoints and questions.

    If you’re at home and would like to purchase the book, you can always buy it off Amazon.
