GET THE VIDEOS
Breakaway provides five videos focused on evangelism in the form of three trainings and two talks. The trainings are given to the camera and are interaction-focused, while the talks are recorded in front of a small studio audience to feel more like a conference. These videos in total give your participants a great foundation in both the practice and understanding of evangelism.
These videos are meant to be shown on your Breakaway trip, but are flexible enough to use in other contexts as you see fit.
EVANGELISM 101: WHAT IS THE GOOD NEWS?—KERI ARMENTROUT
This is a foundational training made specifically for students who haven’t done evangelism before, or are still new to evangelism. Keri will start by redefining major misconceptions about what it means to do evangelism, including how to be inviting instead of pushy. She’ll walk through the universal message of the good news, focusing on the four points and God’s Word. Finally, she will focus on how to defeat the personal barriers of fear, awkwardness, and unbelief. This training will provide students the basics of what it looks like to do evangelism and will transition well into the following trainings.
LEARNING THE OTHER: WHAT IS GOOD NEWS TO THEM?—MATT MIKALATOS
Everyone on earth, whether they recognize it or not, whether they know it or not, wants to know more about God. This training will help you learn how to listen well and understand others so that you might better communicate how the good news meets them in their current experience. You’ll learn how to answer questions like, “What is good news to this person?” and “Where are they seeking life outside of God?” In doing so, you’ll know how to better communicate the gospel message in a way that they can understand.
SHARING YOUR STORY: WHAT IS GOOD NEWS TO YOU?—MATT MIKALATOS
What is most meaningful about the good news of Jesus for someone else might be different than what’s most compelling about the good news to you or me. This training will help you think through not only what your salvation testimony is, but also how to communicate how Jesus has and continues to transform your life in the day-to-day experience. These smaller, personal testimonies will help you share how Jesus is good news to you, so that others might understand in a relatable and authentic way.
