Lots of our churches have been using evangelistic courses as part of our long term strategy.  But many leaders and evangelism teams are nervous about how to lead in the new world of online evangelistic courses.

Laura Riley was leading a term one evangelistic course that switched to online halfway through. And she’s now co-ordinating a fully-online course that started on Easter Monday with 13 guests and four hosts. 

Laura’s joined by Michael Nguyen, who became a Christian as part of an introducing God course last year and is now helping facilitate. 

We’ll discuss the nitty gritty of how to make an online evangelistic course work including: 

  • How do you make the initial connection work?
  • How and where did we find the members in this group? 
  • How to make guests feel relationally safe? 
  • The difference age makes in how people relate and connect online? 
  • How does the discussion work? 
  • What is the timing on the night? 
  • Who is in the courses? How different is this to who we might normally see? 
  • Any key mistakes to avoid? 
  • Would you keep running a digital evangelistic course post COVID-19?
