What is the Evangelism Summit?

The Evangelism Summit is a gathering of Christians across Canada who want to fulfill God’s Great Commission.

The free summit will take place in three cities from October 13 to 20, with each city featuring key speakers to inspire and challenge us in evangelism.

How can this Evangelism Summit help me today in my evangelistic ministry?

Every pastor and the individual believer is commissioned by Jesus to tell others within their community and sphere of influence about the hope in Jesus.

Circumstances, the burden of ministry, opposition to the Gospel and the challenges of life, at times, deflate our evangelistic zeal, and make the command of Jesus “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations … “ (Matthew 28: 19) less urgent.

Attend the Evangelism Summit to see how and what you can do at this time in your own community-and come alongside other Christians doing the same.
