Embrace: Showing and Sharing the Love of Jesus is an evangelism resource melding personal experience and theological integrity to equip Christ followers to share their faith with confidence, competence, and grace. Approaching both the gospel and the formation of faith holistically, Embrace explores six values that comprise the essence of authentic evangelism: humility, clarity, prayer, integrity, worship, and urgency. Through the metaphor of embrace, Christ followers are offered a new way of envisioning our theological posture, or our “way of being in the world” that grounds all evangelistic effort, thus restoring the confidence, wholeness, and responsiveness to the power of the Holy Spirit that undergirds all Christian witness.
Embrace is available in several formats. The study book is designed for use by individuals and small groups. It is divided into six sessions – an introductory session followed by five sessions focusing on the essential values of evangelism (humility, clarity, prayer, integrity, worship, and urgency) and includes guidelines and activities for each weekly gathering in addition to participants’ reading and activities. The Embrace study book is $15.00 and can be ordered by clicking the link above!
There is an Embrace Church Resource Kit available to augment the study book experience. It includes a copy of the study book, Scripture passages, sermon series ideas, slide templates, and other resources to coordinate Sunday worship with the small group curriculum. The Church Resource Kit is $39.00 and will be available soon. Check back for ordering options. As an additional option, WME speakers are available to launch or conclude a church-wide study.
Embrace can also be taught in a 1½ – 2 day workshop context in congregational, district, conference or other organizational settings. If interested in hosting a workshop event, please click the booking request button above and complete the form.
