Cost: $25 for workbook
Description: Do you love your Indian neighbors and want to see them follow our Lord Jesus? Perhaps you identify with any of these feelings:
“I see Indians all around me in my city, but I don’t know how to talk with them.”
“I give them my gospel presentation, but I know they’re just viewing Jesus as one of their many gods.”
“I’d like to share the gospel with Indians, but doesn’t that take special literature or strategies?”
Well, yes, it does take special effort, some learning, some unlearning, and a lot of patience. We’ll learn together in interactive sessions, practice role-playing practical skills, and discuss articles and videos in small groups. Topics include The Hindu Pizza, Initiating Spiritual Conversations, Unlearning Christianese, Overcoming Obstacles, and much more. You will leave this training empowered to share Jesus with your South Asian neighbors in a way that is attractive and non-threatening and will leave them wanting more.

Wednesday Night Dinner at Ridgecrest: Our group will eat together on Wednesday night in the dining hall from 5:30-6:30 so we can get to know one another, followed by one introductory session of Love Your Neighbor.
Note: Since this pre-conference starts Wednesday evening, it will be necessary to add an extra night’s housing and several meals to your Ridgecrest reservation.
