“Engaging Your Community” with Dr John Fuder

an evangelism training event

Monday 19th to Friday 23rd January 2015
The Faith Mission Bible College, Edinburgh

You’ll find this
conference helpful if:

  • you are an
    evangelist, gospel worker (or you want to be…)
  • you support/train/equip the above
  • you are
    committed to communicating unchanging gospel truths in a changing world
  • you want
    to be equipped to love people in Jesus’ name in your neighbourhood and beyond

Reaching people convincingly
with the unchanging Good News is our passion.
We live for the glory and fame of the Saviour, Jesus Christ. We celebrate when people in all walks of life
find New Life in Jesus, discovering joy & freedom in the Holy Spirit. We are on a mission to love and serve a
changing world in desperate need to rediscover its Creator.

But, the pace of societal
change often presents the evangelist with a challenge. Or perhaps an opportunity. Spotting the open doors, embracing them, and
discovering where God is at work is our privilege. And sometimes a barrier and frustration.

An Opportunity on Our

Join us at Cc:onnect 2015 and
learn how to exegete your community so that you can clearly and convincingly
communicate unchanging truths through whole-life ministry in Jesus name. Dig deep and connect meaningfully in your town, village, street, home.

Developing Our

Cc:onnect 2015 will present a biblical
framework for evangelism, applied to changing lifestyles, cultures and contexts,
in both town and country. We will
explore the motivations and methods for personal and group witness and discuss
approaches to holistic evangelism. And we
will explore the practical ways we can discover open doors for the gospel in
any culture and community, at home or abroad.

This conference will run for
five days, based at FMBC with teaching from Dr John Fuder and case studies from
other ministries. It is open to church
leaders, evangelists, Bible students and anyone excited to make Jesus famous! Spaces are limited, so book your place soon.

Who is John Fuder?

Dr. John Fuder is coming as a friend and mentor of FMBC lecturers Adrian & Heather Holdsworth, who studied under him at Moody Theological Seminary, Chicago. John is the director of Justice and
Compassion Ministries of re:source global, and the Director of City Engagement
