"I don't know of a better resource for training people in evangelism than Empowered. It's completely free of guilt-inducing pressure - and wonderfully full of inspiring, practical, Christ-focused Bible teaching. It is ideal for church Home Groups to use. It will leave the most reluctant witness feeling, not simply 'perhaps I can do this after all', but 'I really want to!'"
---Vaughan Roberts, Rector, St Ebbe's Church, Oxford, UK
"God has gifted Becky with a rare combination of enthusiasm and substance, down-to-earth realism in the stories she tells that lifts spirits, and an understanding of evangelism rooted in the Bible to feed our minds. Add to that a healthy dose of humour and by the time she has finished you want to tell others about Jesus and even believe you can! Empowered is the kind of training course I value and want all churches to profit from too. Ideal for the nervous and those who don't feel gifted for evangelism as well as those raring to go."
---Hugh Palmer, Rector of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London
"A perfect remedy for all Christians who struggle with sharing their faith: full of insight, rich in enthusiasm and above all, overflowing with encouragement."
---Revd Canon J.John, Director, Philo Trust
So many Christians feel nervous, guilty or awkward when they think about sharing their faith with friends and family. It doesn't have to be this way. You - whoever you are - can be empowered for evangelism that is faithful, compelling and relational. Empowered will leave ordinary Christians not only wanting to share their faith, but knowing how to talk about Jesus in their normal lives and everyday conversations.
Each session of Empowered opens with a short introduction from Becky before moving to an interactive group Bible study grounded in God's word. This is followed by a short talk by Becky on the DVD. Becky's warm, personable style blends timeless biblical truth with tried and tested techniques - as well as plenty of funny and encouraging real life stories. After the talk there's time to work through the practical implications in discussion groups, before turning to prayer.
Empowered would make a great basis for a church weekend away or day conference, or can be used in home groups and small groups week by week.

From the Introduction▼▲
"Never has there been a greater need to share Christ with the world (starting with our own neighbors) - yet never have believers seemed more ill equipped. It is imperative that we know how to effectively communicate the gospel. We need to get beyond one-size-fits-all techniques. We need to learn to communicate the truth in a way that is also loving. Yet we need to remember, even as we seek to show Christ's compassionate love, still to share Christ's gospel truth."
