Conversational Evangelism


Spiritual Formation Institute Seminar 2007/1
Date: 17 & 24 March 2007 (Saturdays)
Time: 2.00pm-6.00pm
Venue: Holy Light Church main hall, Johor Bahru

Synopsis

"How do we share the gospel with those who seem less and less interested in hearing about the person of Christ and who may in fact think we are somewhat arrogant for holding such an exclusive view of truth?" "What do you said to someone who told you that 'I am glad that Christianity works for you but please leave me alone, I am happy with what I believe!'?"

Conversational Evangelism explores effective ways of integrating compelling Christian evidences into our daily conversations with pre-believers through interactive dialogue. There are primarily four types of conversational engagements:

(1) a conversation that focuses on hearing what the other person actually believes;
(2) on asking questions illuminating gaps in their belief systems;
(3) on uncovering real barriers and deeper root issues; and
(4) on building a bridge to the gospel. This seminar will also suggest some practical ways to use Conversational Evangelism effectively in ones daily witness.

Objectives Of Seminar

· To understand the problems in evangelism today in a Post-Christian World
· To clarify misunderstandings that could affect our witness
· To learn how to use a pre-evangelism paradigm in your witness to others.
· To give practical ideas on how to implement this model into your daily witness to increase your effectiveness in witnessing to others.

Is Dave Geisler related to Norman Geisler by any chance?

Dave is Norm's son... the father is a prolific scholar/apologist, while Dave is really doing a much needed ministry of conversational apologetics in Spore that holds strongly to relational listening as well as giving solid biblical responses/incisive questionings... no false dichotomy here

If u cud make it for this session, it's well worth ur time. The days of mass evangelist like Billy Graham are gone, we need a legion of informed and winsome ambassadors in the marketplace!
