At the mention of the word 'evangelism' most Christians grow weak at the knees, their heart rate rises rapidly, and they suddenly being to perspire. They say, You want me to do what? What do you mean share the gospel by using actual words? Witnessing?! Sound familiar? Evangelism is a subject that freaks out many in the church today. For a lot of us we have all the reasons why we cant lined up: I dont know what to say. I dont know where to start. I dont know enough. I dont want to offend them. Im no good at talking, Im too shy, etc, etc, etc. However, the Word of God tells us that without the light of the gospel the lost will wind up in a place called 'hell'. It begs the question, How will they hear unless someone tells them? If you are in this position of wanting to reach out to a lost and dying world (wayward family members, unsaved friends, skeptical co-workers, or even that guy sitting next to you on the plane) but the very prospect of doing that scares you to death. Then come join us at The Awakening 09 Conference for a time of instruction and encouragement to live for Jesus out loud.The purpose of The Awakening 09 Conference is to provide Christians with quality training in how to share the gospel effectively. This event will equip you, your family, your friends, or your church group with the necessary tools to overcome that fear of reaching out. The goal is to see believers, young and old, motivated to boldly begin a new lifestyle a lifestyle of evangelism.http://www.theawakening09.com/http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/event.php?eid=120341907634&ref=nf
