We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves. In this Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy.

Gospel Conversations

The Bible compels us to go and share the gospel with those who don’t know. The command is simple, but it can often feel uncomfortable for Christians to have open conversations about God in their spheres of influence. We ask questions like:

What is the gospel, exactly? How can I share my story with my neighbor, friend, or family member? How do I even enter into the conversation without it being awkward?”

To help us overcome these mental hurdles, we want provide practical advice, and help you become more comfortable in starting and continuing Gospel conversations with people in your various spheres of influence

Leaders: Carrie Ball, Jim Sexton, Evelyn Sexton
Meeting Dates: January 24-February 28
Time: Wednesdays, 6:00 PM
Location: Room 254
