Share! : exploring the call to Licensed Evangelistic ministry

Registration is now open for 2020/21.

Evangelist ministry is more than you may think.  Evangelists want to reach people outside the church community, but also encourage those within to be confident about their story.  Evangelists are enablers of others and ‘tellers of the Good News’ in various contexts.  The Share! course explores this ministry and, for those who wish, leads to Licensed Ministry.

Current Licensed Evangelists in this diocese minister in Church groups; in a pub, within new housing, running courses like Alpha and Faith Pictures, run Fresh Expressions like Café Church, are engaged in chaplaincy and are involved in online services and outreach.  They are supported locally as part of a diocesan team and can join the Church Army Mission Community nationally.

To find out more about this exciting ministry and to sign up for this one-year course please contact: Andrew Payne CA or Dawn Gillett. or phone 01473 601438. To read more about becoming a Licensed Evangelist please visit:
