Many of us think evangelization means going out and preaching or teaching about what we believe.
The reality is that evangelization starts with something much, much more important.
Evangelization begins with our everyday habits
These habits help people around us find healing and inspiration in Jesus Christ and his Church.
Together these habits make up The Evangelization Stack.
The Evangelization Stack is a series of habits and activities that we do to help others encounter Christ and experience a conversion because of that encounter.
Each habit stacks on top of the other and this online workshop will guide you through the process of developing these habits.
During this online workshop, you will:
- Focus on evangelizing specific people in your life
- Rekindle relationships with people close to you
- Invite someone to an event that might lead them into an encounter with Christ
- Practice simple methods of "discipleship" and mentoring
- Find the best way to answer difficult questions about the Catholic faith
This four-week online workshop will help you think differently about evangelization.
Those who apply The Evangelization Stack to their lives and ministries find that evangelization isn’t as difficult as it seems.
When we use the stack, we put Christ at the center of our evangelizing efforts and shift from a "push or a pull mentality" to a "support mentality."
If you have ever felt you could do more or be better at sharing your faith and spreading the good news, this workshop is for you.
By the end of the four weeks, you will have established the habits necessary to be a constant witness for Christ to those around you.
