When we evangelize, we proclaim Christ as the one, unique Savior and Redeemer. However, not everyone is interesting in hearing about the Lord Jesus. In today’s post-modern culture, the task of evangelizing others is often difficult, and those who engage in it can encounter several obstacles.

What are some tools we can use to open the door to a meaningful conversation about the Lord Jesus and his Church? 

Objective: In this course, students will learn about the obstacles we face when evangelizing others and why it's important to have patience. Students will learn that evangelizing others must start with oneself and about finding the source of courage necessary to continue forward.
