Archbishop of Canterbury welcomes new Stepping into evangelism resource
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, has welcomed Church Armys new resource,
Stepping into Evangelism, a practical booklet to equip individuals and churches to share their faith through words and action.
Stepping into Evangelism is filled with hands-on advice, tips and workbook exercises to help people engage in evangelism day-to-day. With evangelism being one of the Archbishops top three priorities, (as well asour own theme here in the Diocese of Bristol for 2014), it is hoped the resource will be a blessing to the wider church.
Justin Welbysaid: When Pharaoh kept the people of God slaves he instructed them to make bricks but didnt give them the straw they needed to make them. Our God is entirely the opposite God charges us with a task then gives us what we need.
"This resource is a gift from God, via Church Army, to enable each of us to live out the most freeing, exciting and life-giving of mandates that God offers: to be witnesses to Jesus Christ. This is just the kind of thing we need.
Church Army Chief Executive, Mark Russell, said: Evangelism can be a scary prospect for many people or just another thing to add to lifes to-do list. Others may see it as merely a growth strategy for the church.
"Yet, evangelism is so exciting when viewed from God's perspective! It is God's vision to see lives changed, hearts renewed, creation restored and people transformed into followers of Jesus. And the best news about all of this is that he wants us to be involved. Therefore, we hope Stepping into Evangelism will be a real encouragement and blessing to the wider church.
Stepping into Evangelism is available to purchase for 3 from Church Armys website or by telephoning 0300 123 2113.
A free sample chapter of the booklet is available to read on thewebsite.
