Evangelism Workshop Details:
October 11: Learning to listen to the promptings of God
Recognizing God's prompting is at the heart of sharing the gospel with another person. This first session will look at a disciplined way of recognizing and listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as you read Scripture.
November 8: Responding to the promptings of God
This session will look at prayers and attitudes that will help you respond when the Holy Spirit is prompting you to speak to another person about Jesus and what he has done in your life and can do in the life of the other person.
