Course Description

Every follower of Jesus has a sincere desire to share God's love with others. We want to tell friends and family about who Jesus is, what he means to us, and all he has done for us. Deep in our hearts we have a burning passion to pass on the good news we have received. But where do we start?

The Organic Outreach course will help you shape a personal approach to passing on the good news of Jesus in natural ways. This is not a system or a program. It’s a collection of biblical practices that you can incorporate into your life starting today. You can begin right where God has placed you. You can share the love and message of Jesus in a way that fits exactly how God has wired you. In this practical study, pastor and author Kevin Harney offers the tools needed to reach out with God's love in organic ways.

Discover ordinary ways to communicate God’s love and the message of salvation—naturally.

By completing this course, you'll gain:

  • a deeper understanding of what the Bible teaches about evangelism
  • practical insights for sharing your faith with unbelievers
  • a grasp on how the Holy Spirit and prayer support evangelism
  • encouragement to put into practice the truths you’re learning
  • confidence in your growing knowledge developed through personalized review sessions and unit assessments
