Training in the New Evangelization

ACTS II: CONVERSION, PROCLAMATION, COMMUNITY


PRELIMINARY APPLICATION INFORMATION


We thank you for your interest in the online ACTS II Evangelization Training.

Before submitting your application, please read the following very carefully.

*** IMPORTANT ***


  1. It would be very beneficial to you if you could get a friend to go through this training with you. However, if that is not possible, it will not prevent you from taking the training yourself.

  2. You will begin with Session One and proceed through Session Thirteen. You will only have access to the Session you are currently studying. Most sessions have a Part 1 and a Part 2. You will only have access to the "part" you are currently studying.

    When you complete a Session or Part of a Session, previous Sessions will no longer be available to you. Our logic in this is simple. Were you enrolled in the ACTS II Evangelization Training in a face-to-face environment, you would only have your notes and your EVANGELIZERS HANDBOOK (EH), Be an Evangelizer? Me?, 1B, to refer back to once a Session was completed.

    There are two very good reasons for this online logic:

    1. It will encourage you to diligently study the material before moving on.
    2. It will encourage you to take notes and completely finish all assignments and each Study Guide before moving on.

    You will download each Sesson of the EVANGELIZERS HANDBOOK (EH) as you proceed through the training. You must print this and have it in front of you as you study the Session. If you do not have access to a printer, you will have to copy the pdf formatted EH to a USB, or other device, and take it to a business that provides a printing service. Walgreens® is a good example and even provides for your uploading the pdf file for pickup the same day.

  3. The commitment to study the ACTS II Evangelization Training online, is NOT simply a lazy, rosy, easy, stroll through articles, Bible references, or even expert opinions, concerning the important efforts and means to effective Evangelization.

    Rather, it is a serious undertaking, by a trainee, to "make it your own", an extensive determined study of the sessions and related materials that will make you an effective evangelizer of the Good News of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    The materials for your study have been developed and used in classroom type environments around the world for many years. It is our hope and prayer that many organizations and parishes may study, learn, retain, and thereby use the ACTS II Process which is more than the ACTS II Evangelization Online Training offered here.

  4. The commitment you are about to make involves committing yourself to a steady, determined effort to complete the study of the ACTS II Evangelization Online Training in a timely and efficient manner.

    The time frame that is most recommended is to commit yourself to completing each Session on a weekly basis just as it is done in a weekly classroom setting. That allows you to become immersed in the training making it easier for you to make the training your own. If this is not possible, completing each session within a two-week period would be acceptable but not as advantageous to you for the reason given for the weekly completion of each session.

  5. It is very important for you to set goals for your participation in the online training. In this busy life, we have many distractions that keep us from focusing on our priorities. Proverbs 16:3. We recommend you strive for completing one Session per week! Of course, we know that circumstances do not always let us meet our goals. There are birthdays, holidays, work, and even sometimes sickness. However, the more determined you are to meet your goals, the more effective you will become.

  6. Retreat Weekends. As a part of your training, you will engage in two special weekend studies, the Life in the Spirit Retreat Weekend and the Evangelization in the Modern World Weekend.

  7. Having guided many trainees through the ACTS II Evangelization Training face-to-face, we have found that having two Bibles available is of immense help for the trainee.

    Many notes will need to be made in your Bible in such a way that you may guide a potential candidate closer to the Lord. This Bible will become known to you as your "Evangelization Bible". You will use it over and over again in your evangelizing efforts.

    Your second Bible will be used by you to prayerfully read and meditate upon the Scriptures as well as become your personal "Study Bible".

    Having two Bibles available to you will be of immense value, one Bible for prayer and study and one for evangelization!
