The EIA Team
A wonderful journey…
Evangelism In Australia exists to train and equip believers and churches for evangelism, we do this through a variety of services. If you’re following Jesus, there’s no doubt you desire to somehow share this wonderful experience with others. Living life, knowing and experiencing the reality of Christ each day is too good to keep to yourself.
Aussies want it real
Watching family, friends and colleagues do life without faith is challenging when you know that the Father’s heart is that they would know Him. Sure, some people may be successful and appear at times to have it altogether, but one or two deeper conversations can reveal a sense of emptiness, guilt and often a lack of purpose or hope. You know that a real relationship with Jesus is the answer.
Australians on their best day do not want Christianity forced upon them. First, they want to see it working in someones life and they want to know it’s for real. Someone showing up uninvited on their doorstep to share Christ is often not welcomed and research supports a more friendly approach to outreach. Australians are open to spiritual conversations and given the right environments and circumstances are willing to explore how faith can make a difference in their life.
Evangelism in Australia exists to encourage everyday believers and churches in the work of evangelism.
Our conviction is that people come to faith over time, conversion is a process, it’s a journey. The goal is to see people become disciples of Christ, people saying yes to Jesus and going on to follow him for a lifetime, not a short time.
Australia is a large and varied nation, people come from many walks of life. Isn’t it surprising how the few things that reached one friend for Jesus were not that effective when reaching another? Isn’t it interesting that the initiatives that the church down the road employed for effective outreach do not necessarily work for all other churches?
Doing it well
So, what’s the answer? What should you do to keep reaching out? What’s the best way to go about seeing others become disciples of Christ?
The answer to these questions and more is at the heart of EIA. It’s never one answer and it’s rarely two. It’s usually a combination of thoughts, the opportunity to hear the stories of others, think through new possibilities, gather relevant information and explore new tools.
Tina Waldrom, the founder of Evangelism in Australia has worked for three decades exploring the concept of sharing faith with others and how churches can do this best. Having worked on staff with both a small and then mega-church, Tina has some wonderful experiences to draw from. Her Doctoral work With Fuller Theological Seminary in California and further work with organisations like the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Alpha Australia and Olive Tree Media have provided additional insights on how churches and believers alike can be best equipped to share the gospel in Australia. She is also the host of The Win Win Evangelism Podcast, a finalist for Christian Podcast of the Year, 2022.
God loves Aussies
The great commission is definitely something that all believers and churches can be a part of and do well. We believe that outreach can be natural, it can flow and have a sense of ease. Australia is a nation that desperately needs the good news of Jesus Christ. The heart of our Father is toward Australia. His desire is that all Aussies would experience His unconditional love, salvation, grace, forgiveness, healing and peace.
