DP 6 Listening Evangelism-- Bellingham, WA
Would you like to reignite your passion for evangelism or learn a simple evangelism model that gives you confidence to share your faith in a natural way?
A recent survey by Lifeway mentioned that 80% of Christians say they feel a responsibility to share their faith in Christ with someone else, but 61% have not shared their faith with anyone in the past 6 months.
What often stands in the way is a nervousness or fear that you'll get it wrong, mess up a friendship, or worse. For some, it's a paralyzing fear.
Listening Evangelism will help you find a natural and fearless way to more faith-sharing conversations in the ordinary course of life. It emphasizes learning God’s vision for evangelism, and developing a passion for personal evangelism. We also seek to develop practical evangelism skills in cooperation with the Holy Spirit.
Comments from participants
“I learned that I could do this” . . . .
“The whole atmosphere was safe and loving. No pressure. Everything is explained and low-key .”
"You’ve taken the stress out of evangelism.”
We cover topics like:
The Role of the Holy Spirit in Evangelism
Learning God’s vision for evangelism, and
Listening for God’s call to a particular region or people group.
Learning how to recognize Kairos moments.
Here are some other testimonies:
“I liked how the Holy Spirit was allowed to move.”
“The scriptural foundation is very valuable.”
“There was an atmosphere for healing prayer to take place.”
“The ministry is so authentic. So helpful!”
Even if personal evangelism intimidates you, you will find this teaching will equip you with a greater confidence in talking about your faith in Jesus Christ.
What is The Dunamis Project?
The Dunamis Project is the central training of PRMI to help you cooperate with the Holy Spirit in whatever ministry you may have, in whatever part of the world you may live. The Dunamis Project is a series of six conferences (four or five days each) over three years where you will discover and learn how to use your spiritual gifts in whatever ministry you have.
With The Dunamis Project, you discover:
- Solid biblical teaching about the person and work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.
- Teaching forged from the Scriptures, proven in ministry, and informed by 200 years of renewal and revival movements.
- Spiritual gifts and how to use them effectively in the Kingdom of God.
- How to recognize God’s guidance for ministry in a given moment through the experience-based lab times and review debriefings.
