Online Friendship Evangelism Course

Scheduled dates:
Summer 2024

Around us everywhere are people with whom Jesus wants us to share his message of love and salvation.  In striving to help Christians with this vital mission, the WELS Commission on Evangelism is offering this course on Friendship Evangelism through the Martin Luther College online continuing education program: THE9103.

This course is designed to enable learners to confidently share the faith they are already publicly sharing at worship in a personal, transparent, and informed approach.  Participants in this course will . . . .

  • Understand the connection between their regular confession of faith in Jesus at public worship and opportunities to confess that faith in private with friends.
  • Experience the joy that comes in sharing a gospel witness.
  • Appreciate the opportunities to grow fuller and deeper friendships where natural and gradual faith-sharing can take place.
  • Learn to confidently deal with Satan’s attempts to prevent, hinder, or halt witnessing.
  • Become familiar with a multitude of helps that are available today and practice using them.
  • Become significantly involved in their local congregation’s outreach ministries, helping to develop evangelism as a natural part of its culture.
