Even though followers of Christ have the best news in the world to share with others, we often struggle with how best to say it. Perhaps we think that if we don't present it like Pastor Gregg or Rev. Billy Graham, we might as well not even try.

Most of our evangelism classes are free to attend and open to members and guests from any of our campuses. Registration is required for Xee and the Share Your Faith Workshops, so be sure to sign up.
