Frequently Asked Questions For
Discipleship & Evangelism Cohort
What is Evangelism Cohort all about?
Matthew 28 calls us to make disciples, yet many of us struggle to open our mouths about our hope in Christ. We may fear rejection, feel inadequate, or just prefer to leave evangelism to the experts who always seem to know what to say. In this cohort, we'll exercise our "spiritual conversation" muscles together, and learn how ministry leaders like yourselves can help
1. Support people in a lifestyle of evangelism and
2. Create a wider culture where everyone has a role to play in evangelism and disciple-making

What are church planters and ministry leaders saying about the impact of the cohort?
“This has been an experience that has made me grow in ways I didn’t think I could.”
“Hearing the excitement of other cohort members as they talk about evangelism has been the most impactful part of the experience.”

“I plan to talk with my church leaders about the difference in excitement about evangelism in the people in this cohort vs our average congregant.”
“Our session challenged me to pause and rest in the freedom and confidence created by recognizing God's role in drawing people to himself.”
“We will continue to discuss all that we learn in our core cohort of leaders. We are also looking for ways to be more missionally minded as a church community, so this experience will be used as a catalyst to start a team who can change culture.”
“I plan on implementing what was discussed by recognizing the immensity of God’s grace in my life and humbling myself before God and being willing to not only listen, but also understand people in order to love them.”
