There are many people all over the world who have never had the opportunity to hear and respond to the Good News. God longs for relationship with each one! The School of Evangelism trains you to take part in what God is doing in the nations with practical tools for a lifestyle of evangelism. We build on the foundation of the DTS, so that deepening your relationship with God will increase your ability to be His witness to the ends of the earth.
Throughout the school, you will grow in your understanding of the nature, character and ways of God and the content of the gospel. You will have many opportunities to develop skills in evangelism and overcome fear, enabling you to communicate the gospel clearly and accurately in different cultural settings. During our lecture phase, topics include: Biblical Basis for Evangelism, God’s Heart for the Lost, Personal Evangelism, Nature of God, Answering the Hard Questions, Discipleship Movements, Comparative Religions and more. We'll explore all of this whilst engaging in evangelism regularly throughout the week.
In evangelism you will likely encounter people whose difficult, complex questions stop them from following Jesus. “If there is an all-powerful, all-loving God, why is there so much suffering in the world?” “How can you be sure that Jesus is the only way?” Together we can find answers to these questions and learn how to communicate in ways people will understand.
You will also explore how to share the gospel with people of different religions and worldviews, as well as look at current issues of today.
Your lecture phase is followed by 11 weeks of outreach, walking out Jesus’ instruction in Mark 16:15-18 to go into the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Outreach locations vary from year to year, but often involve reaching out both locally and internationally. As you step out in obedience to what God speaks, He will move through you.
During outreach, you will further put into practice what you have learnt. You get to see how His power and the spiritual authority He has given us help bring the Kingdom of God. Outreach includes opportunities such as one-on-one evangelism, public proclamation of the gospel, acts of kindness, home visits, Bible distribution, Bible studies, evangelism seminars and more. Through these, we seek to bring lasting change in people's lives and communities.
Your final week is spent back at YWAM Perth, celebrating what God has done and getting ready for all He has ahead. The SOE can equip you to confidently communicate Christ in whatever setting He leads you to next.
