Evangelism Explosion

Evangelism Explosion
Partner: Evangelism Explosion

Evangelism Explosion is a ministry that trains people how to share their faith in Christ and how to bring people from unbelief to belief. It utilizes a variety of components including prayer, actual on-the-job training where the experienced lead the inexperienced, and the principle of spiritual multiplication. Spiritual multiplication through discipleship is the key component, not just winning people to the Lord one-by-one (addition); but training those won to the Lord to win, and then train, others. In the Book of Acts we read that the disciples “multiplied” and “multiplied exceedingly.” This shift from addition to spiritual multiplication offers the one real hope of sharing the Gospel with a world population that is, itself, continually multiplying.


On-the-job training is another vital ingredient. By actually going out with experienced trainers in real life witnessing situations, people learn how to share their faith. Much like learning to fly an airplane would be impossible without actually getting in the cockpit, evangelism is difficult without leaving the confines of a classroom.


By learning small parts of the Gospel, each week, including Bible verses and illustrations, people incrementally grasp a Gospel tool that becomes a lifelong mission.
