CHICAGO, IL (November 26, 2018) – The latest episode of CovCast, the podcast of The Covenant Companion, features an interview with Covenant pastor John Teter about his recent book, The Power of the 72: Ordinary Disciples in Extraordinary Evangelism.
Teter, pastor of Fountain of Life Covenant Church in Long Beach, California, says the greatest problem in the New Testament isn’t sin but a shortage of willing evangelists. In a conversation with CovCast hosts Cathy Norman Peterson and Ed Gilbreath he offers listeners tips for overcoming their fears about evangelism.
“A mantra that I try to live by and teach our church is this: the more you know, the less you fear,” says Teter.
He explains that knowing a few simple dynamics about human behavior and the role of the Holy Spirit can relieve a lot of our anxiety around sharing the gospel. He also shares four intentional practices that anyone can employ in order to become a more confident evangelist.
