The purpose of the Preparation course is to train you on how to become an evangelist using Biblical and practical principles of proclamation of Billy Graham’s ministry. The focus of the course is to teach that proclamation evangelism results in an ongoing harvest.

Preparation explores three foundational topics: understanding the message, the need for evangelism, and the scope of our mission as assigned by the Lord Jesus Christ.

The course will guide you on how to become an evangelist by understanding the content and priority of the Gospel message, how to explain it from a Bible passage, and how to share it with another person or group. You will discover the “why” of evangelism as you see how sin came into the world, causing the separation between God and people; realize that people cannot escape from this condition; and learn about the importance of the Gospel as the only hope of being rescued from sin. You will also understand the mission the Lord Jesus Christ has given to every believer, learn the principles of evangelism and discipleship, and realize the presence and power of Christ in the Great Commission.
