The purpose of this study is to give an introduction to evangelization through the narrative of the Acts of the Apostles. We have determined three areas of introduction that can be gathered from Acts: First, evangelization requires some foundational principles. Second, evangelization is strategic in nature. Finally, the Acts of the Apostles reveals practical ways to evangelize that we can put to use in our own life.
Acts of the Apostles
INTRODUCTION: LEADING THIS STUDY
God’s word is alive and it should be embodied in our lives. The purpose of this study is to give an introduction to evangelization through the narrative of the Acts of the Apostles.
CHAPTER 1: EVANGELIZATION IN THE CONTEXT OF THE CHURCH
The opening of the Acts of the Apostles outlines the entire book while also showing that evangelization starts within the context of the authority of the Church.
CHAPTER 5: WHAT'S GOD'S MISSION FOR YOUR LIFE?
God has a plan for our life. How are we called to serve? What is God’s plan for your life? In this chapter, we will look at the conversion of St. Paul to examine how God gave him a mission for his life.
CHAPTER 6: 'WIN, BUILD, SEND' EVANGELIZATION AND THE SPIRITUAL MULTIPLICATION DEPTH CHART
The goal of this study is to examine St. Paul’s evangelization strategy in Acts 14 and then begin to fill out a Spiritual Multiplication Depth Chart to strategize about the people God has put in our own lives.
CHAPTER 7: LEARNING TO ARTICULATE THE FAITH
St. Paul learned to speak to different crowds in different ways. We should follow his example and pay close attention to the kinds of people we are speaking to.
