Share Your Faith Workshop

    On Saturday 4/2/11 Amanda and I went to the Brickyard Bible Church in Chicago to attend a “Share Your Faith Workshop” (SYFW) from Evangelism Explosion. It was advertised to take 5-6 hours, but with lunch and breaks it actually took 7 hours. We were there from 9am until 4pm.

    Over the past 15 years I have been trained in and I have taught many ways to share the gospel. I have also read numerous books on the subject. I am active in sharing my faith, so I have my own methodology as well. The first method of sharing my faith that I was taught was the EE outline so I was very familiar with the outline of the SYFW. It is basically the same outline. The difference is that one is given a tool that never leaves you, unless your hands are cut off. That’s right, the tool is your own hand. Some may now be saying, “what is the difference between this and the roman’s road that used to be taught?” The difference is that the roman’s road method is 5 scripture verses that one memorizes as an aid to sharing the gospel. The SYFW turns this inside out and gives one a gospel outline that you add your memorized scripture verses to in the same way that you begin with a skeleton and then add the muscles and tendons and then the flesh. You build upon the skeleton outline represented by your five fingers by memorizing scripture verses and illustrations. Even though I have been using EE for 15 years I can teach anyone to share the gospel in a short period of time with this new tool. Thank you EE. And thank you Pastor Santiago and your wife Angie and the entire Brickyard Bible Church for hosting this training.
