Stump the Chump (Question Cafe): Q&A format where students can ask any question they wish of the “Chump” (me) regarding Christianity. My job is to offer a thoughtful reply.
Large Group talks and Calls to Faith
Dorm Talks: Often sponsored by Small Groups.
Individual Appointments with Christian and nonChristian students/faculty to discuss faith and ministry issues. I do this a lot.
Leadership Module for staff and student leaders.
Conversational Evangelism Training: Equipping lay people to share Christ with friends and neighbors.
Topics: Definition of evangelism (“Sharing Christ in a caring way”), Detective work (discerning God’s work in a friend’s life), transitioning to spiritual topics in conversation, the 5 Thresholds of conversion, sharing your spiritual story, sharing the gospel, etc.
This is the most frequent seminar I offer in churches. Works well for a Saturday seminar, weeknight refresher, or 2-3 part adult Sunday School series.
Apologetics Training: Teaching staff and lay people how to answer tough questions using concrete images and illustrations. Also, how to relate to atheists and other skeptics.
Preparing Kids for College: This seminar helps parents and Christian educators prepare young people (elementary through high school) for living faithfully at secular colleges and universities.
Pulpit Fill: Preaching in your sermon series or presenting a call to missional living. Additionally, I enjoy giving sermons from the Gospels, with whatever applications flow naturally from the text.
