AE505― Practical Evangelism
Elective for MDiv or DMin― 3 credits. Prerequisite: AE505- Christian Apologetics 2.
Equipped with the facts of scriptural and archaeological apologetics; how then do we effectively share the gospel? Simply share our logic and brilliance which defies reasoning away? Develop loving relationships through years of contact, hoping they will eventually open to and ask about the good news of Christ?
These methods work occasionally, but is there a more effective way? Perhaps we need to understand how those we encounter think, where they are coming from, and how can we strategically reach them as individuals… and as Jesus did? The curriculum revisits evangelism and provides an approach demonstrated as effective by a passionate soul-winner. Adding a Ministry Lab for 1 credit is an option.
A unit explaining the perimeters of America’s Religions Freedom is included.
