YOU WANT EVERYBODY TO KNOW JESUS.
But it's not always easy. This is why we're coming together as the Body of Christ on May 30 for a special day of encouragement and inspiration....
Join us for these two wonderful Ted Talk-style events, full of powerful testimonies from new believers here in Portland and practical teaching from nationally-known leaders.
Just think what could happen in our city if we all felt equipped, prepared, and fully confident in our ability to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. It shouldn’t be scary or overwhelming. It should be natural... and exciting!
Lunch Gathering for Leaders
9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Most Christians struggle with sharing their faith--leaders included. Slick training and scripted methods haven't helped much. Something feels missing. But what? In this special event presented by the Portland Evangelism Team we'll share inspiring conversation about the heart of gospel-sharing faith. Join us for this conversational time of stories and best practices, as we ask what it would mean to show and tell the gospel in practical, natural, and even easy ways.
Evening Gathering for Local Believers
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
You love Jesus, and want to share him with your family, friends, and neighbors. So why does talking about your faith feel so hard sometimes? In this inspiring, conversational event, we'll hear incredible stories of real Christians sharing their faith, and be moved to practical, natural, and even easy ways to connect the Good News to our community.

6 P.M. TO 7 P.M.
