Forums are specific courses designed to train and prepare evangelists in their countries of origin. This includes the biblical theology of evangelism so they can in turn train other evangelists.
The course of study is deeply biblical, historical, culturally focused, and personally tailored to prepare evangelists to train the church in communicating the Gospel and making disciples. This is an intense 6 – 8 week program that includes class instruction as well as events where evangelism is taught and preached outside the classroom. Each forum class also includes methodologies and the passion of the evangelistic message with an intentionality to train others. Forums are typically held once a quarter or so over a period of two years.
Currently, we have held Forums in India, Nigeria, and Kenya. We have had requests to establish Forums in Europe, Eastern Europe, Ethiopia, Malawi, Peru, and S.E. Asia. These are being carefully assessed and prayed over to determine where our energy and resources might be invested in the future.
