Evangelism Explosion is a ministry that trains people how to share their faith in Christ and how to bring people from unbelief to belief. It utilizes a variety of components including prayer, actual on-the-job training where the experienced lead the inexperienced, and the principle of spiritual multiplication.
“Multiplication” is the key component, not just winning people to the Lord one-by-one (addition). But training those won to the Lord to win, and then train, others. In the Book of Acts we read that the disciples “multiplied” and “multiplied exceedingly.” This shift from addition to spiritual multiplication offers the one real hope of sharing the Gospel with a world population that is, itself, continually multiplying.
On-the-job training is another vital ingredient. By actually going out with experienced trainers in real life witnessing situations, people learn how to share their faith. Much like learning to fly an airplane would be impossible without actually getting in the cockpit, evangelism is difficult without leaving the confines of a classroom.
By learning small parts of the Gospel each week, including Bible verses and illustrations, people incrementally grasp a Gospel tool that becomes a lifelong mission.
For over 50 years church leaders and lay people have been equipped to share their faith in Christ through Classic EE. Classic EE is the trusted and time-tested method first introduced at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in the 1970s. Through classroom lessons, homework and practical on-the-job training, this evangelism ministry changes individual lives and often the life of the church.
Through the years, men and women in the US and around the world have learned to effectively share the gospel in a concise and logical manner, using many illustrations and scripture references. They, in turn, are equipped to become trainers, assisting others in learning how to do the same – the all-important process of multiplication in action.
Line upon line, trainees gradually learn how to present the Gospel convincingly as they observe their trainer in a real life sharing situation. Experience builds confidence. By the end of the training, each trainee is able to share the whole Gospel presentation.
