The public proclamation of the gospel in the context of local church life is a matter of life and death for everyone connected to that church. At this conference, we are seeking to equip local churches in evangelism. You will hear messages that focus on evangelism and the individual, evangelism and the family, and evangelism in the church. We pray that this experience will be for the improvement of evangelistic activities at all levels of church and personal life.
