Three Circles Training (with Harvest) - December 21

Join me December 21 in Pekin.

From 10-11am we'll learn how to share the Gospel, how to start a spiritual conversations, and what to do with potential responses.
Then from 11am-1230pm we'll go practice what we learned in real life with real people.

Last time we did this we shared the Gospel with 5 different people. One of them was a junior high student. For the first time he seemed to understand that trusting in Jesus is what can save him from sin, not his good works. If you join us maybe you can meet him as we continue the conversation.

Let me know if you are interested and I'll get you specific details.

Three Circles Training (with harvest time!) - November 21

The 3 Circles is a simple Gospel presentation method. You can find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5W8ynRMr59k&t=3s

There are 3 Questions you can use to guide a conversation to the 3 Circles, I've blogged about those questions before: http://www.pheaney.com/2017/12/3-question-gospel-conversation-guide.html

After you share the Gospel there are 3 Responses you might get, you can find those responses, as well as what you should do with each of them here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vR8PPN1gG_c

You can find all of this content and teach yourself, but I'm gonna guess you'll get more out of it if you train someone else. Watch the videos, practice a few times, and then meet with a friend to train them.

If you need the training, join us Wednesday Nov 21 at 10am. After we learn these skills we'll take a short walk and put them into practice at a community Thanksgiving lunch. I can't wait to see what God does.

  • Email me if you are interested and I'll get you more details.
  • If this isn't for you, but you thought of someone who would be interested, could you please send this along to them? Thanks.

Disciple-Making Practicum

I'm starting a couple disciple-making practicums* soon, and I'd love for you (yes, you!) to be a part of them. You can read the full details here, but in short, you'll learn ten skills to help you share the Gospel and make disciples AND (stay with me here) you'll actually get to put those skills into practice.

The two practicums I'm starting will both be located in Pekin and meet:

  • Mondays, 430-6pm
  • Thursdays, 345-515pm
If you are interested in either one, let me know!  If you're interested but those times and locations don't work, let me know that too and we can try to schedule something else.



*What does the word practicum even mean?  A practicum is a course of study that involves the practical application of previously studied theory.  Or in layman's terms: A practicum is where you practice what you study.

Jesus tells us to teach new disciples to obey the commands he had given them. We are not to just teach about the commands but actually teach people to obey. Obeying takes practice. That's what we're talking about. I hope you'll consider joining.
