Powered Up for Ministry Kent Church Hosts Hands-on Personal Ministries Program

There’s a buzz around Washington Conference after members from 12 area churches attended the “Plug into the Power” personal ministries leadership training session at Kent Church.

“Personal ministries is caught rather than taught,” said Byron Dulan, Washington Conference director of personal ministries. “We give people an opportunity to experience a witnessing technique and determine if this program fits into the culture of their church.” Experienced personal ministry leaders worked side by side with participants to help stretch witnessing comfort levels with water and popcorn giveaways, surveys and prayer walking.

“Personal ministries is caught rather than taught,” said Byron Dulan, Washington Conference director of personal ministries. “We give people an opportunity to experience a witnessing technique and determine if this program fits into the culture of their church.”

"Nobody had a bad experience," Dulan said. "Rejection is the biggest fear people face with door-to-door ministry. Yet God went ahead of us and opened doors."

Carol Zettley from the Kent Church was surprised at people's reactions when she handed out water bottles in a park. "They were really nice and didn't bite after all."
