Online Evangelism Certificate Program

The WELS Commission on Evangelism offers evangelism courses through the Martin Luther College continuing education program. These online evangelism courses are designed and intended for lay members and called workers to help them 1) lead their congregations with planning and implementing efforts to reach more people with the gospel, and 2) grow in the understanding, ability and confidence for personal evangelism. Each course provides the biblical foundation for evangelism and ministry resources for training and encouraging participants.

Upon successful completion of all three online evangelism courses, individuals are eligible to apply for an Evangelism Certificate. However, the courses may be taken by those not pursuing the Certificate, only choosing course(s) according to their interest.

Three online courses are offered at different times. Click on the course title to learn more about each course and when it is offered. Questions? Contact: Pastor Eric Roecker, Director – Commission on Evangelism: [email protected]
