If you completed this course, you may want a certificate of completion.
Enrollment is Closed

In a Crisis? Share your faith. Seriously.

What are the essential elements of the Gospel message? What are the non-negotiables that must be shared so that one can understand what Christ did for him or her?  What unique doors are open during times of crises?   

You will experience the power and love of God that empowers your witness for Christ in this course.    During present and future crises, you will see how God's love is especially active  even though many don't see it.     

Every believer knows she should share her faith. Yet, the reason why so many do not regularly do it is that they haven't grasped the love of God and power that God gives to walk through open doors. 

What you will learn in this course

You will join with others, guided by an experienced mentor, to experience...  

  • The transforming fact that God loves you and stands by you in every conversation
  • The open doors for evangelism that are all around us during a time of crisis
  • The power of prayer that gives you boldness to proclaim Christ in any context
  • The key elements that are part of every conversation that points to Jesus  


You will spend 4-6 hours per week engaging in carefully crafted and inspiring presentations by Dr. Root. With a discussion leader, you will be discussing questions in guided forums, reflecting on relevant readings, and completing a quiz to capstone the course.
