The aim and objectives of these sessions are to encourage and equip our brothers and sisters in Christ to take hold of the Great Commission and to make disciples of all Nations. This means taking hold of the power and authority that the Lord has given us, to be real disciples, to go out into all the world, preach the Good News, heal the sick and cast out demons. (Mark 16 v 15)
Session 1: You Fit PerfectlyThis is a foundational session, as we need to have a firm understanding of our relationship with God, before we move on to the ministry of discipleship or evangelism. This session is based on Tope Pearson`s book “You Fit Perfectly”. After praise, worship and prayer, we will look at our Christian journey and whether any abuse, loss, rejection, forgiveness or other barriers could block our relationship with God and the Holy Spirit moving freely in our lives. We will seek healing of any unresolved issues, reflect, share and move into how we fit perfectly into Gods plan for our lives. There will be personal testimonies, time for individual ministry and end with a review, prayer and some homework”.
Session 2: Who we are in Christ
Session 3: Spiritual Giftings
|Session 4: The Great Commission (Part 1) – Evangelism|
This will be a full day including lunch. The morning session will start with praise and worship, along with prayer. We will recap on the last three sessions, teach the Four Point Gospel using the Bridge illustration, equip with tools to enable them to look for opportunities, open up a conversation about their faith and look at what reactions to expect from people when they share their story.
There will be sufficient role play within groups to bolster their confidence and faith especially to prepare them to handle objection, knowing we face challenges and battles when we go out but the Lord will go before us.
