Why would anyone want to buy another book on church planting? According to some pastors and church planters, “most of the books on church planting are a rearrangement of the information that is already out there.” If that is true, then you need to take a look at what this new book, Church Planters Have All the Fun(ding)!,  has to offer.

Church Planters Have All the Fun(ding)! is divided into two parts.  Part One of this book seeks to address two aspects of church planting: the fundamentals of establishing a new church from the beginning based on New Testament principles, and the funding the church will experience as it finds ways to combine evangelism with possibilities for personal income. The fun(ding)–the fun and the finances–for the church planter, as well as the church plant, comes from an outreach method called SHARE Evangelism  Read More (more…)

SHARE EVANGELISM

No doubt many of you who have explored this website, have seen the term SHARE Evangelism. For those of you who are curious, let me give you a brief explanation.  First, SHARE stands for Serving Him And Reaching Everyone. It began simply as SHARE Institute in Davao City, Philippines, in 1990.  Based on the demands and needs of the church and community, SHARE was intentionally designed to teach livelihood skills as a bridge to developing relationships that open the door to sharing the Gospel of Christ. Skills are important, but the primary focus is on Evangelism.

Today, SHARE Evangelism is now the outreach tool for SHARE Institute, International.  SHARE is an organization that almost isn’t an organization! It resides on my computer and is freely shared with those who need an evangelistic tool that will also help finance their outreach or church planting effort.  There is no cost, there is no reporting, there is no obligation back to me.  It is my joy to see it go viral around the world.

SHARE Evangelism is available to you by request.  If you would like to access the training available through SHARE Evangelism, please contact me by email. Tell me about your plans for church planting. Please give me your full legal name (and nickname), where you live, where your church is (or will be), the name of your church, your cell phone number, and any additional information you would like to share with  me. I will email you the web address and passwords for the SHARE Evangelism training manual (about 45 pages if printed), and for the answer key to the chapter review questions.  Notice that at the bottom of this website is a translation tool.  You can use it to translate the entire website to your preferred language or dialect.

My prayer is that many will find this SHARE Evangelism helpful and effective.  Please pray for me, as I will be praying for you.
