On January 24-27, the It Is Written Training Weekend was held at the Glendale Church in Indianapolis. More than 50 attended to receive evangelism training taught by Yves Monnier, Evangelism director for It Is Written (IIW) television program; Douglas Na'a, director of SALT; and Jack Phillips, IIW Bible Studies director.
The cycle of evangelism as given by Jesus was the main theme. Highlights were giving interactive Bible studies, helping others feel a part of the church, praying sessions, following-up on Bible study requests, building relationships, and planning evangelistic meetings.
Attendees will take their new skills back to teach local church members. In two hours of community outreach, the trainees signed up 57 local residents for Bible studies.
