School of Evangelism
The School of Evangelism is a course designed to raise up a new generation of evangelists who will work closely with the local church in mentoring, equipping, inspiring and resourcing them to effectively take the power of God for salvation (the Gospel) into the community. The goal is that people will have an opportunity to have their lives transformed by Christ and to be discipled to maturity, actively serving in the local church and the community.
