Sunday School Evangelism Tools


FAITH is a Sunday School evangelism process that uses outreach teams (FAITH teams) of three members from Sunday School classes in weekly visitation. Evangelism training on how to share your faith and ministry visit training on how to make ministry visits is conducted each week before visitation. A semester is 16 weeks and there should be two semesters per year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The pastor must attend a FAITH clinic in order to purchase materials and be trained in conducting FAITH. See the Lifeway web site for clinic information and costs at www.lifeway.com.


GROW is an outreach strategy that uses teams in visitation. There are 4 teams named after the word GROW. Each team is to be at the assigned visitation one night a month. GROW stands for God Rewards Our Work. In the kit you will find training materials on how to share your faith and how to do weekly visitation. Much emphasis is placed on keeping up with prospects once they have been identified. . A GROW training kit is available at Lifeway stores or online at www.lifeway.com.
