    Foundations of Evangelism
    The goal of this course is to help Christians see just how easy it is to share their faith with the lost. God’s greatest revelations to mankind and how these can be used to inspire faith are introduced as well as how to share your personal testimony. We will also provide an introduction to disciple-making, how to answer “tough questions” as well as the attitude of a soul winner. This course will help you prepare for the joy of leading people to Christ.

    What Faith Is and How to Live by It
    Examine how God operated in faith and discover that you also have the same measure of faith available in your life. Learn how faith operates from your heart and your confession of God’s Word.

    Discipleship Evangelism III
    Be equipped to confidently communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost, to grow in your understanding of the kingdom, and to disciple new believers. Covers topics such as spiritual gifts, miracles, godly relationships, law and grace, and discipling others. Third of a three-part series.

    What Faith Is and How to Live by It
    “I had never considered God’s Word (our Bible) to be a legal document. Once I understood this, it cleared up some issues in my understanding of authority.”

    “What Faith Is and How to Live by It–the title says it all. It was a great summary of relevant scripture. We all need faith-building. This was a great exercise in building our spiritual strength.”

    “There were a lot of great things I learned in this class, but the one thing I heard that has stuck with me during these past few weeks is that faith is expectancy. I learned that we are to be expecting to receive from God. It made me evaluate what and how I believe when I ask something from the Lord.” 🙂

    Discipleship Evangelism III
    “This course is definitely beneficial and practical in the ‘real world’ of Christianity. This course is a must.”

    “I absolutely loved this course. Barry is my favorite teacher, and he teaches the Word so well!”

    “The Discipleship Evangelism series has been a huge blessing. Not only did I learn a ton and draw closer to God in the process, but the lessons are very straightforward and easy to understand. I shared a few with my wife, and we are very excited to start a Bible study and share this material.”
