An authentic evangelistic outreach must stand on the unchanging, profound truths of the Bible. Learners will begin these studies by examining the Gospels which reveal the objective of Jesus Christ’s ministry and strategy for evangelism. They will go forward with a course of action that aligns with God’s overall plan for each person: The Great Commission.
Through these studies, participants will be able to define “evangelism” from a Biblical perspective, interpret the eight guiding principles of Jesus’ master plan of evangelism, defend Jesus’ strategy of evangelism to the local church, and gain a better understanding of the human condition and God’s response.
The instructor will offer optional Zoom meetings for discussion during this course.
This course is eligible for 3.0 CEU.
Students are required to have The Master Plan of Evangelism, 2nd edition, abridged, by Dr. Robert E. Coleman for this course.

About the Instructor
Darla M. Thieler is the founder of Remnant Ministries, a multi-faceted outreach ministry which began in 1982. A local evangelist and certified lay speaker with the Western Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church, she serves as a Bible teacher, conference leader, inspirational speaker, praise and worship leader, composer, theater arts performer and director, and much more. Darla is director of music for Calvin United Presbyterian Church (PCUSA).
The heart of Remnant Ministries began with the ministry at the juvenile detention centers. Raised in the United Methodist tradition, Darla’s life changed forever when she attended a Christian concert at a district event at age 13. Believing that every person is precious to God, Darla and her husband, George, continue sharing this same message of hope at every opportunity. Darla’s heartfelt desire is to bring glory and honor to God. Her prayer is that through the Living Word of God, others will come to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and all God’s children will be encouraged to make a deeper commitment to grow in their relationship with Him.

“Excellent course. Really excellent instructor. Darla’s command of the Bible allows her to respond to any situation with appropriate scripture. Darla’s personal evangelism provides great examples of how to be fearless in spreading the word of God with the goal of making new disciples.”
“I have developed a strong understanding of how Jesus made Disciples and have a good start in developing a plan for my churches to do the same!”
“The first course is well done and opened my eyes to more questions and possibilities. Darla does a good job keeping us on the right path and pointing us to Jesus and the Word.”
“I learned that Jesus gave us a model for creating disciples that we can follow, and that it is important to be working on making new disciples. I also learned that my stories of the impact of God on my life are valid for retelling to people who could become new disciples.”
