“Training at FOCUS TEAM encouraged me to question my own belief (in a good way!) & equipped me to answer questions from others” – an Indonesian student about our Tuesday night training
Our Training in Evangelism And Ministry (FOCUS TEAM for short) on Tuesday nights is about training and equipping Christians to serve people with the gospel and God’s word.
In a typical semester we run 3 basic courses that every Christian at university can do with their friends and families:
- Telling people about Jesus
(using the 2 Ways To Live gospel outline)
- Evangelistic Bible Studies
(using short bible studies to read the Bible one-to-one with a non-Christian)
(discipling young Christians one-to-one using Just For Starter to read the Bible)
There are also other occasional courses run in some semesters to further sharpen and strengthen those who have completed, and are putting into practice, the basics. For example, we run Growth Group courses to train those suitable for leading small groups.
- Leading Growth Groups
- FLOW (Faithfully Listening to the Original Word)
Furthermore, apart from these practical hands-on courses, there is a theology hour at FocusTEAM every week as well. This is when we delve deep into the Bible and consider matters of Christian theology and how it interacts with ourselves and God’s world.
As Paul says in 1 Timothy 4:8 –for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
