The purpose of this event is to equip local churches with theological and practical skills in reaching and making new disciples of Jesus Christ. Breakout sessions will cover evangelism to children, youth, young adults, and adults. A church wide follow up with a study of “Meet the Goodpeople: Wesley’s 7 ways to share Faith,” will be the practical follow up for those churches that attend the workshop.
