Christ Our King Fall Bible Studies, The Heart of Evangelism
View the schedule for weekly readings here.
Have you ever questioned if you should be involved in the spreading of the gospel? Have you ever wondered how you should go about spreading the good news of Jesus Christ? Does the prospect of sharing your faith scare you?
This fall all the Christ Our King Bible studies will be exploring the topic of evangelism using the book The Heart of Evangelism by Jerram Barrs.
Professor Barrs is a former disciple of Francis Schaeffer and a current professor at Covenant Theological Seminary. His approach to evangelism is different than many other approaches you may be familiar with. He stresses relational evangelism, which means sharing our lives and faith in natural ways with those people who already surround us.
Don't let the fact that Jerram is a professor scare you from reading the book or attending this Bible study! Jerram writes in a very accessible and clear way that everyone will be able to comprehend. He is also a favorite professor of many students due to his winsome approach and kind and caring heart.
The Bible studies themselves will be informal, discussion based studies. The reading assignments will be small so that everyone can find time to prepare and participate.
The church will have some copies of the book available for purchase. Additionally you may purchase it yourself here (There is a Kindle edition!):
We have three Bible studies to choose from. Wednesday morning ladies' study lead by Gretchen Shults; Wednesday night men's study led by Pastor LeCroy; and Wednesday evening ladies' study lead by Laura Talbert. Please e-mail those leaders for more information.
