This year’s conference welcomes US apologist and evangelist Randy Newman (author of Questioning Evangelism and Bringing the Gospel Home) who will lead the thinking about conversational and relational evangelism that works for the 21st Century.
Gone are the days when thousands walked forward at the invitation of an evangelist to give their lives to Christ. The practice of evangelism today is more about the slow and steady dismantling of false ideas; the gradual building of understanding; and developing trust in relationships and the church community as we walk with friends towards gospel commitment. And there are often difficulties, setbacks and obstacles on the road to faith.
How do we equip ourselves and our churches for effective outreach and evangelism in this climate?
