Your story growing from our story
From Saturdays at the bookstore to an international, evangelism training ministry
We live in a world where it seems that engaging in evangelism and sharing our faith is harder and harder. With the rise of secularism, increasingly religiously diverse communities, and the rise of the nones in younger generations; the Christian church has a big challenge ahead.
We understand the challenge. We embrace it and encourage you to do the same. Engage 360 Ministries (E360), while new in its formation (spring 2018), is ancient in its foundation. E360 seeks to employ the model, ideas, and cultural concepts used throughout the early church, whether it be by the Apostle Paul on Mars Hill or by early believers in the marketplaces, the synagogues, on the roads, and even in prison. We train Christians to engage the culture in their context.
E360’s more recent roots trace back 10 years to movements started at Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES).
The first was the creation of T.E.A.M.—a missions outreach designed to unite students, alumni, and professors to serve churches by providing free or low cost training in evangelism, theology, and answering hard questions people were asking.
The second movement was led by E360’s Evangelism Director, Greg Walker. “Evangelism Saturdays” were an intentional time for students to meet at local bookstores seeking evangelistic conversations. Students began inviting church members from within their own congregations to join in this outreach in order to model the evangelism strategies that were found to be effective.
This model has been repeated over and over whether doing outreach in Charlotte, NC or Rome, Italy.
From Charlotte to Rome to your city
What became clear in this process was that in order to be effective in engaging the culture, you have to know what you believe, why you believe it, and see effective conversations modeled. This grows your confidence and your faith is deepened. We want to deliver this same modeled evangelism training to churches and cities throughout the US and the world.
Many of us in E360 have had our lives changed by this outreach and desire to see fellow Christians engaging the world effectively. From this desire, Engage 360 was born. We are an experienced, multi-disciplinary team committed to helping churches fulfill the Great Commission. We have taken our training and ministry experience to develop what has become Engage 360. We desire to see every disciple trained and the world engaged. We exist to help Christians know their faith, share their faith, and grow in their faith.
