Evangelism Cohort


Evangelism Cohort 2024

Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.

Mark 1:17

Do you desire to grow in your passion for sharing the message of the gospel? Do you want to pursue discipleship in evangelism and to do so with others who have the same aim? Our church is launching an evangelism cohort to help us grow together in learning how to share the love of Jesus and the message of salvation with others.

The cohort will meet for a series of three units (spring, summer, and fall of 2024). Each unit will be 4-6 weeks. Our meetings will consist of prayer, study, and accountability, in addition to planning church outreach events and practicing evangelism.

The cohort members commit to the following:

  1. Prayer: Recognizing the Spirit moves where He wishes (John 3:8), we commit to pray for one another, our neighbors, communities, and our church.
  2. Discipleship: Through reading and discussing Christian literature and studying the Bible, we commit to grow in our passion for and competency in sharing the gospel.
  3. Evangelism: We commit to purposefully pursue evangelistic opportunities, encourage one another in this endeavor, and hold each other accountable in our goals to share our faith with others.
  4. Planning and Oversight of Outreach Opportunities: We commit to work together to organize and oversee churchwide opportunities for evangelism and connection within our communit
