Montana Conference Holds Third Boot Camp
The Montana Conference sponsored their third evangelism boot camp in September. Two previous camps have been held in Bozeman, and another is planned for the fall in 2009. These camps use the ShareHim curriculum to help educate and equip people to conduct evangelistic meetings, either in their communities or internationally.
Presenters for the camp this year included Jeremiah Weeks, from ShareHim; Montana Conference office personnel; and three pastors from around the conference, who shared experiences in soul winning.
This year the boot camp was offered not only for potential speakers, but also to members of the outreach leadership team, who plan sowing events and do behind-the-scenes work.
Sabbath was spent talking about different seed-sowing ideas. There was also time for sharing what different churches have tried: what has worked and what has not worked.
On Sunday morning, attendees practiced using the free ShareHim software. Those who were interested in conducting evangelistic series were able to use the new Mt. Ellis Elementary computer lab and sign up to help at the ShareHim Web site.
So far, nearly 200 people in the Montana Conference have attended evangelism boot camps, including over 40 people this year.
