Invitation to the 1.5 PUSH: Evangelism Training with Don Sunshine

by Nick Gatzke on October 24, 2013
Dear Friends,
Many of us have an intense desire to reach the lost on Cape Cod for Jesus Christ but we feel ill-equipped to do so.  We wrestle to muster up courage.  We search for the right words to say.  We desperately try to identify the opportunities that God is placing before us to share the Good News of Jesus.  We live in a place in which so few have heard and we are growing in our deep-rooted conviction that they need to hear in order to experience the great love of God.  We know that despite our shortcomings, God has called each and every Christian to participate in this work of Kingdom expansion.  He does not want anyone to perish, but for all to come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).  He calls all Christians to function as His ambassadors and God makes His appeal to the world through us (2 Cor 5:20).  Through you.  Through me.  Through us.
Wow….we better muster up that courage.  We better find the words.  We better be able to identify the opportunities.  The 1.5% of people in this area who are Evangelical Christians better really PUSH if this is going to happen.
According to a recent survey in our church 54% of respondents said “Seeing examples of others sharing their faith” would help them to share their faith more.  Another 21% said that “formal evangelism training” would help them to share their faith more.  Motivation for the task that God has placed before us is not lacking.  The practical dynamics of how to make it happen is where we fall short.  Consequently, I’m writing to invite you to participate in an event that will help equip us to fulfill our role as ambassadors of the Gospel.
On Saturday, November 2nd, Don Sunshine will be leading a lifestyle evangelism training called, “Make a Difference” at Osterville Baptist Church from 9am-2:30pm.  Many of us were impacted by this training when Don was here in the Spring at Cape Cod Bible Alliance.  The response of those who attended was so significant, we have decided to offer the training again.  Christians from across the Cape are invited to join as we seek to reach Cape Cod with the Gospel.  You’ll give up part of a Saturday, but it could change the way live your life and it could change the eternal destiny of those you come in contact with.
