Additional Training

The specific training sessions below are designed either to enable seamless implementation of the essential strategies presented in the Activate Conference or to assist mission leaders in determining how better to lead mission efforts in your church.

Discovering your Evangelistic Strength

In this seminar, you will learn six ways people in the Bible shared their faith. In the process, this seminar will help you discover the most natural way in which you can share your faith as well. Through the self-assessment tool and teaching of God’s Word, you will discover your evangelistic strength. With this information, you can more effectively share your faith with others.

One-Verse Evangelism

Learn how to share your faith using the most popular verse in the Bible. This nuts-and-bolts seminar will give you a plan to share your faith with others. You will also learn how to share the gospel in ten words, and learn ways to overcome any fear you have in sharing your faith.

Equipping Short-Term Mission Leaders

In this session, short-term mission leaders will learn to effectively coordinate, train, and disciple the members of their short-term mission teams while walking you step-by-step through the planning process.

Mission Leaders Workshop

This training will allow you to join other missions leaders in a workshop setting to explore and apply new methods, principles, and tools that will increase personal engagement and effectiveness in outreach and missions throughout your local church, and to determine the feasibility of implementation in your church. The group size will be limited in order to facilitate interaction between the instructor and attendees.
