By admin

Draft of the University Church Master Plan of Evangelism (2014-2017)

 

Philosophy

  • Focus on Workers: Leverage and train current Adventist students, new converts, and members to become workers (soul winners)

 

Mechanism

  • Bible University” – every convert will be enrolled in Bible University  (TCC in University context) where Pastors/Elders will become a coach in classroom and field. There will be two phases of training one for becoming a worker and advanced training for after becoming a worker.
  • Utilize small groups as connecting point in evangelism cycle
  • Utilize current MI conference departments in evangelism cycle to accelerate the process such as: summer LE program and Emmanuel Institute

 

Goal to have 80 active workers in 5 Years and 1 church plant on campus

  • with a 75% increase each year (factoring in 25% loss each year from graduations and transfers)
  • each convert will be trained as a worker
  • each worker will win one person per year

2014 – 15 Workers

2015 – 25 Workers and Two Church Services
