Christian Life and Witness Training


August 10 | 9 am – 2:30 pm | The Regency, Downtown St. Cloud

Whether you’ve shared the Gospel many times or you’re new to personal evangelism, everyone is invited to attend the Christian Life and Witness Training.

The Christian Life and Witness Training helps believers strengthen their faith in Jesus Christ and confidently share Him with others. Celebrate MN is partnering with Steve Rhoads and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to bring this world-renowned training to our community. It will be free to attend, thanks to the generosity of local sponsors.

During this three-part training, participants will learn:
• Biblical principles for living a life that pleases God and points other people to Him.

• Practical tips and advice for sharing the Gospel.

• How to encourage and support new Christians and help them grow in their faith through studying God’s Word.

Participants who complete the training can apply to serve at the Celebrate MN concert event on Sept. 8.
