Whatever the denomination or worship style, there shouldn’t be any disagreements when it comes to the message participants will share at the Evangelism Summit planned for Saturday (June 2), organizer Walter Jacobson said.
“At these evangelism events I haven’t found that there’s a clash between theologies and denominations, especially if you’re talking about how to share the gospel and disciple people,” Jacobson told Together LA. “Talking about a topic like this is something that we can all get together and discuss without anyone feeling uncomfortable.”
In its second year, the summit includes several speakers and worship leaders, and is aimed at bringing together a diverse group on a regular basis in order to share from “our collective experience, the tools that we have used in the field.” The vision also includes working with individual churches to help them grow and thrive in doing the great commission.
Jacobson said that at first, he was reluctant to host such an event upon receiving the vision just a few years ago. Despite his uncertainty, it seems God has been putting people in his life that have helped him overcome any felt inadequacies, he said.
In addition to finding organizational support from new and old friends, Jacobson has aligned seasoned speakers and highly respected worship artists for the Evangelism Summit to be held at LifeVine Ministries in Long Beach.
Guest speakers include:
Hendee, who is the author of It’s All About Relationship, is scheduled to share how to approach friends, family and acquaintances with the Good News of Jesus Christ in a simple and effective life-changing way.
