Candlewood Church has always focused on helping people get closer to God, and an important component to that has been training people to help others get closer to God. To that end, we put on an evangelism training program each summer. In the program we help people develop a heart for the lost, and teach them how to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ. We provide various tools, and opportunities to practice, which helps people get more comfortable sharing their faith. Removing some of the barriers that prevent many people from taking part in evangelism (such as not knowing what to say, or not feeling comfortable saying it), prepares believers to be more obedient to Jesus in the Great Commission, and supports our vision of seeing the whole world changed by the Gospel, one person at a time.
