In 1996, I undertook a serious personal study of the book of Acts. When I came to Acts 5:41-42, the Holy Spirit spoke to me powerfully:

The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.” (Acts 5:41-42)

What struck me was the fact that the Apostles, the Church leaders, those who had walked and talked with Jesus, were prolifically active in evangelism.

After a careful study of Church history, I discovered virtually the entire Early Church had been mobilised, and they reached pretty much the known world with the gospel.

Then I discovered that today only 2% of Christians in the Western Church regularly engage in evangelism.

How had we moved from everyone doing it, to only 2%? Who or what had caused this gigantic shift? How had we regressed 98% over 2000 years?

I clearly felt the Holy Spirit challenge me to find answers to these questions. For 10 years, I sought God and undertook serious study. Over this time He revealed 79 reasons why this shift had occurred.

What’s interesting is that each of these “reasons” is, in reality,  a device of the enemy.

The Apostle Paul speaks about these “devices” in 2 Corinthians 2:11.

A careful study of the word ‘”device”  in the lexicon reveals that “devices” aim to change people’s minds, perceptions, and thoughts about something – in this case “evangelism” and “the gospel.”

An example of a device? Perceiving of evangelism as “the winning of souls”.  Such thinking has made people think it is they who must win the soul when they evangelise.  Not wanting to become bullies or second hand car salesman, the pressure becomes all too much, so they give up (or don’t start) evangelising.

So what’s the bottom line?

The reason the people in your church don’t do evangelism is that the enemy has infiltrated their thoughts, perceptions and minds – without them even knowing!

If a Christian under the influence of just one device will not do evangelism, imagine how paralysed is one who is influenced by all 79?

You see, these ‘devices’ can be likened to computer viruses.  Viruses get there without you knowing. Without anti-virus software installed, computers eventually crash.

It’s the same with the Church. The statistics show the Church in the West has ‘crashed’ with respect to evangelism.

And, like a computer, the only way to re-boot the hard drive and get it functioning again is to deal with the viruses – in the Church’s case, the ‘devices’.

So if you want to discover how the enemy has infiltrated your mind without you knowing, and the minds of all the people in your church, and how you and they can remove the devices and fire up in evangelism again, please, read the book!

This book will be the key to you being unlocked and released into effectively reaching your friends, family and even strangers with an uncompromising but loving gospel message! What’s the investment? $49

Chapter Study GuidesStudy guides are available for each chapter of my book.

These were originally requested by a Bible College, who were enthusiastic about the book and wanted their students to ‘squeeze every last drop of insight’ from its pages.

So I spent many hours writing these chapter studies and now they are available, not just for Bible Schools, Colleges and Seminaries, but also for individuals in a 158-page guidebook. As you read my book with these studies along side you, you will be certain to get the most out of every chapter.

Let’s face it, most of us can read a book and, because we can be distracted while reading, or momentarily lose focus, we can easily miss some of the critical points the author is making.

As you work through each chapter, I will take you step by step on a journey in the study guide, holding your hand (as it were), making sure you don’t miss anything vital. These chapter studies are ideal for individual or small groups study.

What’s the investment? $75.

Jesus was an evangelist.  If you want to be more like Him in this aspect of His life, this DVD series is a ‘must see!’

Jesus said in Matthew 28: 18-20: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples…”

A disciple is an apprentice or a learner.   If we as His disciples are to grow more like Him, it goes without saying we all need discipling in evangelism.

You’ll get teaching and insight previously only available to Bible Colleges!

These six DVDs (19 sessions) were originally for use in a Bible College to disciple students about evangelism and to equip them to actually do evangelism. Click here to see the title of each session. Now they are available for the first time to the wider Christian community.

Guaranteed not boring!

Sessions range in length from 8 minutes to 45 minutes, and are well researched. They are easy to follow and understand. You’ll find them interesting, engaging – and entertaining! These DVDs are the A-Z of evangelism, and cover almost everything you need to know on this critical subject.

What’s the investment? $99 for the first set, and $75 for each set thereafter.

Evangelistic booklet which explains how Christianity works.

It’s not easy to explain how Christianity works, and how it all fits together.

In fact, as any seasoned Christian will tell you, the more one knows about Christianity, the harder it is to write a simple booklet explaining it.

But many non-Christians want to know. Telling them “Jesus love you” is not enough.  They reply “My mother and my cat love me. What makes Jesus different?” You get the point. Their question is a valid one.

This booklet explains conceptually what it’s all about and is jargon free.   It’s not intellectually insulting and yet it follows a logical progression and is easy to follow. It has no ‘cringe factor’.

Furthermore, it’s been ‘road tested’ with the un-churched, and proven to be well received. Its message is gracious and loving, yet uncompromising.

Measuring 148mm x 105mm and only 36 pages, this booklet is pocket sized, thin, and easy to carry around. You’ll be ready for ‘that’ moment when your prompted by the Holy Spirit to give one away!

Or just leave them in public places, or letter boxes. Clearly explains why we must be saved, how Jesus can save us, what we must do to be saved, and Jesus’ plan for us in this life.

Many churches are now using it to educate existing believers about the basics.

In addition, it also provides a top web site address where readers can find balanced, Biblical, and well written answers to all the hard questions they might have. What’s the investment? $25 for a pack of 20

Jesus said ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel.’ (Mark 16:15).  But it’s not as easy as it sounds, right? Do you find it hard to explain to your non-Christian friends and family what ‘Jesus’, ‘Church’ and ‘Christianity’ are all about?

Do you feel a bit embarrassed or awkward bringing up the subject? Do you pray for someone to ‘do the explaining for you?’

Well, you’re not alone! Most Christians have these thoughts and feelings.  The good news is, your prayers have been answered!

His Gift - Our OpportunityHave you ever wondered how and why some Christians just seem to be used by God and others not? Ever thought about why some people just leave their mark on the earth, and others pass through making little impact for God?

What exactly was it about their walk with God that enabled Him to work through them in a such a mighty way?

A year ago, a strong desire to find answers to these and other questions propelled me into research.  What I found was too good to keep to myself so I put together a set of 84 EVANGELISM READINGS (one for each day of the 12 week DVD course) which examine in detail the lives of great Christians, most historical, but some contemporary.

What they all have in common is that they were used by God in evangelism in a truly mighty way. Some of the lives studied include: William Carey, the father of modern missions; Hudson Taylor; Martin Luther; Martyn Lloyd Jones; John Stott; J.I Packer; A.W.Tozer; Bishop J.C. Ryle; D.L. Moody; C.T Studd; John Piper; George Whitfield and many others.

You won’t be able to read these without feeling inspired, encouraged and motivated to be used youself by the Master!

These readings (255 pages, A4 in size) are truly inspirational!

At $35 plus courier I would be surprised if they were not the best investment you’ve ever made to inspire you to greater things in God. Their secrets could be the key to your breakthrough.
