Sharing Christ focuses on personal or friendship evangelization, sharing our relationship with Jesus in our daily encounters with people. The course helps to develop an attitude of the heart that moves us to be open to share the Good News we have experienced anytime and anywhere.
A Typical Sesssion
Sharing Christ consists of seven sessions. The final session takes place in a retreat setting. The weekly sessions include four components: prayer time, a video teaching, fellowship, and small group discussion.
Participants have become more comfortable with prayer through Discovering Christ and Following Christ, and are growing in group prayer and worship.
2. Video Teaching
The teaching provides practical ways to share our relationship with Jesus in our daily encounters with people.
After the teaching, there is time for fellowship over drinks and desserts as people transition into their small groups.
4. Small Group Discussion
Small groups are a place to freely discuss the teaching content. A Sharing Christ small group also serves as a means of accountability for completing the action items for each session.
"[Sharing Christ] has lit a fire under a lot of people here and I rejoice at what God is doing in our parishes because of it."
