Reforging Your Passion for Evangelism
In spring 2009, the Conference Evangelism Committee hosted three Forged in the Fire events. This event is a follow-up to that initial event. While Phase II can serve as a starting point for any IGRC church in becoming passionate about evangelism, the heart of this event is designed to encourage and support those churches that have already made the decision to begin that process.
The event is open to all persons. Spring 2009 participants are invited to be a part of this one-day experience and are encouraged to bring others from their churches that may not have been at the March event. Pastors, Admin Bd/Council chairs, lay leaders, PPRC chairs, Outreach chairs, local church staff, key local church lay leadership and lay speakers will benefit from attending this event.
