Equipping to Share (the Canadian Version): a one day training experience to strengthen and encourage believers for today’s evangelism challenges. Equipping to Share (EtS) workshops concentrate on the believer’s privilege to speak the Gospel, express the impact of Christ in life, seek understanding of the lost, and connect new people into the church family. Biblical models are discussed in the context of our everyday relationships and encounters. The training also draws from current research on the unchurched and practical ways to engage them. To arrange for an Equipping to Share, please contact the ABC District Executive Assistant – Outreach.
