Church: Preacher TrainingJürgen Deines preaching

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the world of truth.”
Timothy 2v14-15

Every Christian is appointed to be a preacher. Preaching does not only mean standing in a pulpit, but means declaring: ‘God so sent his word so that something would change” Preacher Training helps you to put the Lord at the centre of your preaching and to serve him with your proclamation, with which you receive and practise:

  • the necessary preparation steps for proclamation
  • the important tools for the preparation of proclamation
  • the theological knowledge (homiletic), meaning your form and your performance, and
  • the necessary rhetoric

on the course. This knowledge helps you with your tasks as a preacher to appropriately pass on the word of God, not just in some ways but in the correct manner.

You are a go-between of God in a special, responsible position. You are able to comfort, heal and uplift with God’s word but also injure and knock down. Therefore, a well prepared preacher is required for a well prepared sermon. It is not only about knowledge but also about developing a personality which God can used for his ministry. It’s a representation and example which wins the trust of the listener and helps people grow in your belief. 

Church: Evangelism Explosion

Bible with crown of thorns“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Sun and of the Holy Spirit.”
Matthew 28v19

This course is for Christians of all age groups who wish to pass on the Gospel in a clear and relaxed way and who want to develop and evangelistic lifestyle in the circle.

The service of Evangelism Explosion goes back to common mission work. Since the year 2000 it has taught ca. 200,000 believers every year. In Germany, the trained seminar leaders belong to different protestant free churches.

The high participant number shows how great the need for many Christians is to talk to non-Christians about their central beliefs. How do I start a discussion in an everyday situation? How do I respond and answer correctly so that my counterpart finds out more about the Gospel? How do I avoid resistance and objection?

Together in this course, you learn to pass on the Gospel in specific, practical situations. The teachings of the course have already been field tested. During the time frame of the course, believers often take bigger steps forward in their spiritual lives than in any other time: your knowledge of the scriptures, your prayer life, your enthusiasm of evangelism and your understanding of the practical training will grow, whilst you show other people how you are able to grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Evangelism Explosion will give you joy as well as pushing you to your limits. Systematically, step by step, you are shown how you can share the Gospel with your friends or with strangers. Your service to Evangelism Explosion qualifies you to share the great message spontaneously, naturally and logically.
