Min: 2 

Max: 12 (Fall Students + New Students) 

Cost: $20 (Includes Basic Training DVD, Course Study Guide, Basic Training Reference Card, Certificate of Achievement, and tracts)

Description: We began the year learning foundational truths about sharing the Gospel with loved ones and strangers from 23-year-old Grace Mally, author and former homeschool student. Mally addressed the fears students face, excuses we make, practical ideas of how to begin conversations, how to ask the right questions, and defend the gospel. We applied our knowledge during 3 community outreach opportunities. Building on the Fall Semester, we will dive into the Living Waters’ Basic Training Course: a 10- week series specially formatted to train believers in a group setting to simply and confidently share the gospel with family, friends, and strangers. These lessons will teach you to overcome your fears by using a proven, powerfully effective way to make the gospel make sense. You won't be at a loss for words. You don't need to be an expert in apologetics. Instead, you'll learn the forgotten biblical principle of bypassing the intellect (the place of argument) and speaking directly to the conscience (the place of the knowledge of right and wrong) — the way Jesus did. Students will have an opportunity to practice and apply what we learn in 3 community outreaches scheduled around Easter. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8) Note: *AiG uses many Living Waters’ resources in evangelism.
