Class Description

This course will help students construct their own theology of evangelism on biblical and theological foundations and will assist them in developing a program of evangelism appropriate to their ministry contexts. Attention will be given to the place of evangelism within the whole mission of the church, and to its relationship to social justice. Contemporary models and strategies of evangelism will be introduced and theologically critiqued. Students will be encouraged to develop a style of faith-sharing that reflects their theology and their uniqueness, and to have some practical experience in witnessing. This course fulfills one of the requirements for ordination as deacon or elder in The United Methodist Church. Prerequisite: ME570, 580, or 590; or permission.
