Training Day: Confidence in the Truth
Saturday, 26 January 2013 from 08:45 to 16:30 (GMT)
Oxford, United Kingdom
RZIM’s Training Day in Sevenoaks is designed to give you a greater confidence in being able to communicate what you believe, as you endeavour to share your faith with seekers and sceptics alike.
In a world of questions and uncertainties, many of us want to communicate the gospel effectively but feel ill-equipped to do so. Can we really share our faith in a credible, relevant and meaningful way in our workplace, to our neighbours and with our family? And how we really help people with their heartfelt concerns and intellectual objections to the Christian faith?
Michael Ramsden will explore the whole area of ‘Conversational evangelism’ - how we can best share and defend our faith in society today, why the gospel really makes a difference, and how we can turn objections to the faith into opportunities to help people see the cross more clearly.
