Does the idea of evangelism excite you or make you squirm? Does the Good News actually sound like good news anymore? In an increasingly post-Christian culture, how do we equip congregations to invite their neighbors to experience the way, the truth and the life of Jesus? RE gatherings are for people who sense the Church needs a new culture of Christian witness more than another new curriculum. You’re not alone.
Dr. Steven Porter will lead groups in a desperately needed reframing of the Gospel for the twenty-first century. Beginning with Re-Imagining the end of evangelism as we have known it, participants are invited to a fresh reading of Scripture and ways of viewing the Mission of God in their church. Ministers and lay leaders will be inspired to be more engaged and loving communities as they share the Good News.
Dr. Steven Porter serves as the Coordinator of Global Missions for the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Ordained in the National Baptist Convention, USA, he served previously as a commissioned missionary with CBF, directing Touching Miami With Love in Miami, Florida, and as a lecturer in Mission and Global Christianity at Truett Seminary of Baylor University. His wife Jodi and children Ruth and Samuel reside with him in Decatur, Georgia.
