Product Description

The people in your group spend hours every day in the most high-impact mission field in the world: their workplaces. A place where they are regularly in touch with people facing significant life questions. But to have an impact, they need a perspective that's different from anything they've ever heard or read about evangelism. Real evangelism is a process.

It's organic---more like farming than selling. In six thought-provoking and empowering sessions, Workplace Grace walks your group through a proven approach to evangelism that respects the unique relationships they have with their coworkers, clients, or customers.

They will learn easy-to-implement ways to:

  • Create curiosity about faith and stimulate spiritual interest
  • Recognize spiritual hunger and open doors
  • Cultivate common ground with non-Christians
  • Tell their personal faith stories invitingly
  • Practice 'less is more' to share their faith in a nonthreatening way
. . . and more DVD with Leader's Guide sold separately.

Publisher's Description

Through this six-session small group bible study, Workplace Grace, from Bill Peel and Walt Larimore, you’ll learn how to share your faith in natural, non-threatening ways with those around you at work.

Workplace Grace, formerly called Going Public with your Faith, flies in the face of almost everything you’ve ever heard about evangelism. It’s written for Christians who don’t think they have a gift for outreach but want their lives to impact the people around them.

All over the world, people are searching for spiritual answers. But you don’t need to travel to a foreign mission field to find them. You spend out hours with them every day in the most strategic place of impact in the world – your workplace.

Workplace Grace offers a biblical model for evangelism that respects the unique relationships you have with your coworkers, clients, and customers. It illustrates how to be authentic instead of artificial when sharing what you believe – even o the most skeptical person, and cultivate caring connections with those who have not yet come to know Jesus.

This Participant Guide is designed for use together with the Workplace Grace DVD (sold separately) and includes discussion questions for individuals and groups. When used together they provide you with a practical tool than can transform your faith.

Sessions include:
1. Spiritual Economics
2. Called to the Workplace
3. Is Anybody Hungry?
4. Earning the Right to be Heard
5. Keep It Simple: From Cultivating to Planting
6. From Planting to Harvesting

    So how do we deliver grace to our workplaces? Well, the answer is not found in most of the prototypical evangelism texts. While this book has similarities to others it offers some unique pieces directly suited for workplace and other settings as well.First, it speaks about lifestyle. This is pretty common in evangelism texts, but what is unique is the next step in this book. Workplace Grace develops the idea of faith flags, little statements you can naturally insert into conversations that express faith and can elicit questions. They move on to discuss faith stories, not the long witness yet, but short stories that show how an element of faith impacts your life in relation to where the conversation is at. Another key to the book is its discussion of teamwork. Many text speak of the importance of multiple people witnessing, but this book really helps a person understand this in the workplace setting. It recommends that we develop a network of Chrsitian coworkers, bosses, customers, suppliers, pastors, etc, all of whom we feel we can reference a person weve begun the conversation to. This recognizes the importance of many influences and also the very real press of time in a workplace. This is whats covered in chapters 1-7 and I feel they add the most to the discussion of evangelism. What follows in the second half are chapters devoted to important elements of evangelism- creating opportunities for evangelism by maintaining contact with unbelievers, walking through open doors by listening and asking questions, developing your story, the Gospel presentation, answering objections. These chapters are basically solid (though sometimes they do fall into the trap of being overly systematic and decision-oriented), but much of whats in these can be found in other texts.
