Our goal is to encourage the church and others by sharing lessons learned in the field of evangelism. The conference will include a time of worship and our speakers will address four areas of evangelism that often hinder believers from sharing their faith. Lunch will be provided.
Speakers and Topics:
The Evangelist and his Prayers will be presented by Andrei Sava, pastor for Preaching and Discipleship at Trinity Community Church in Clovis, CA. As a pastor with a passion for reaching the lost, Andrei's messages are clearly bathed in prayer. He holds a Master of Divinity in Christian Ministries and a Master in Theology in Biblical Counseling, both degrees from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY. Andrei was born and raised in Romania and earned his B.A. in theological studies at the Baptist Theological Institute in Bucharest, Romania. He is privileged by God to be the husband of Samantha, and the father of two sweet girls, Sofia and Eliana.
The Evangelist and his Love will be presented by Eben Sherwood, a gifted teacher who has been well known as the Teaching Leader for the Men's Bible Study Fellowship here in Fresno from 2002 until May 2016. Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) International is a non-denominational Bible Study with classes around the world, and the Fresno Men's BSF has had up to 500 participants weekly. In addition, Eben has served at Riverpark Bible Church as a children's Sunday School teacher, an elder, and in the Communion Ministry. He is now serving as the Executive Administrator of Riverpark Bible Church. Eben and his wife Darcy have been married for 44 years and they have two adult sons, Steven and Adam. He is a graduate of Fresno State University (Bachelor of Arts- Sociology).
The Evangelist and his Mind will be presented by Tony Gurule. Tony is a full-time missionary on Ratio Christi's National Staff. He is also a "Community Apologist" who speaks in churches and organizations to inform and equip both adults and youth, especially in the areas of evangelism, apologetics, and Islam. Tony also hosts the bi-annual, International Apologetics Marathons on the Trinity Channel which is owned and operated by the Aramaic Broadcasting Network. In addition to that, Tony also hosts "Islam & The News," a weekly show that airs LIVE on Friday's from 2:30pm-4pm PST. Tony did not grow up in a Christian home, and he is the only Christian in his immediate family. By God's grace he became a Christian near the beginning of 2004 while living in Las Vegas, NV. The Lord immediately gave Tony a heart for the lost, and for the last twelve years he has been involved in evangelism and apologetics. Tony is a graduate of Cross Examined Instructor Academy, and is currently pursuing a BA in Religious Studies and a Certificate of Islamic Studies at Southern Evangelical Seminary.
The Evangelist and his Actions will be presented by Rod Savala. Stirred by an awareness of the brevity of life after losing his long-time pastor and friend, Rod Savala made a commitment to finally answer the call to evangelism God had placed on his heart decades earlier. For over eight years now, Rod has spent a portion of each day (Monday-Saturday) doing evangelism throughout the city of Fresno. Last year he began traveling to the Bay area and Southern California to expand his outreach. He has knocked on hundreds of doors, stood on countless street corners, and utilized the free speech areas on numerous college and university campuses in order to bring God's message to mankind. Rod is currently writing a book about his many experiences and encounters in evangelism.
