S.P.I.N. EVANGELISM TRAINING
S.P.I.N. Evangelism is the newest offering of Simple Discipleship. We offer evangelism training and coaching to change the behavior of Christians who are not sharing their faith. Our evangelism training involves several aspects:
What is S.P.I.N. Evangelism?
Understanding the 4 people styles
How to share Christ with the 4 people styles
Experiential training practice witnessing with 4 people
Simple Discipleship is going to the next level! We have identified thirty-two principles that when taken together, they answer the question "What is a disciple of Jesus Christ?" A round cut diamond has 58 facets that gather and reflect light. Likewise, disciples of Jesus Christ have many facets that have the potential of gathering and reflecting his light. The facets of a disciple may be identified in The Laws of Discipleship. This is one reason why there are so many different proposed answers to the qhestion, "What is a disciple?" Notice the balance and symetry that is illustrated in the seven laws or principles in each of the four "quadrants" of Simple Discipleship. If your church is already using Simple Discipleship, The Laws of Discipleship will provide incredible depth for your ministry. The book title has been pre-registered with the Library of Congress and teaching content is being prepared and will be ready soon. Keep checking back for news.
WE EQUIP CHURCH LEADERS TO MAKE DISCIPLE-MAKERS!
Welcome to the Simple Discipleship website. (Scroll down to see the full list of discipleship products and services.) One of the biggest obstacles that ministries currently face is finding biblical and creative ways to grow their congregation. The primary purpose of the church is to make disciples and everything else is subserviant to that Great Commission.Our purpose is to equip Christians and church leaders to make disciple-makers. In the 21st century the greater Christian community has vested the Great Commission responsibility to make disciples to pastors and other church leaders. We believe it is the responsibility of EVERY Christian to make disciples or more properly expressed make disciple-makers. Through the Simple Discipleship website we provide:
S.P.I.N. Evangelism: What I learned while developing a leadership institute for a sales training company helped me develop S.P.i.N Evangelism, a conversational coaching way of sharing Christ using questions to guide the hearer deeper to their ultimate decision. Invite Tom to do a discipleship conference, preach the SPIN Evangelism message on Sunday, and train your people in this biblical method of evangelism.
