Late January saw a four-day training event focusing on how to lead people to Jesus. 

Topics ranged from building bridges and developing relationships to sharing your testimony and how to lead through a Bible study. The training was led by Pr Andrew Jasper (Personal Ministries Director) as well as the team from It Is Written who flew in from the United States for the weekend.  Yves Monnier, Eric Flickinger and Jack Phillips shared presentations and Jack joined the attendees in door-to-door work in the afternoons.  

Sylvia Mendez,attended and said  “Yves’ presentation was one of the best I’ve heard on how to present the gospel in a simple and visual way, using an A5 piece of paper and pen. Anyone can do it and everyone should know how easy it is to share the good news.”

“The weekend has given me a usable toolkit to embark on the challenging journey of bringing people to Christ,” said Steven Wong. “It has significantly lifted my ability and passion to share the Gospel at every opportunity. The training not only equipped us with the necessary skills, but the trainers shared their collective experience, making the training extremely practical.”

The weekend concluded calling each attendee to commit to bringing five friends to the Revelation Today series in May.  Attendees left inspired to share Jesus and grow God’s family in Victoria. 

Pr Andrew Jasper said the weekend was a great success.  “What we’ve seen since the training completed is a good number of Bible Study requests coming back from the door to door work members have done. The training has unlocked their potential and given them the tools and confidence to share Jesus in their communities.”
