Video Resources

One of our core goals is to mobilize Christians toward Great Commission fulfillment. Questions like, ‘What is the Great Commission?’ ‘Does it apply to me and my life?’ and ‘How do I get started in fulfilling the Great Commission command fulfillment?’ On this page, you’ll find training videos, together with the handouts for those videos.

Sharing Your Testimony

We believe that every Christian should be able to ‘share the reason for the hope that they have’ in Jesus. It is a crucial part of fulfilling the Great Commission commands for your life, to be able to tell the story of how you came to Jesus. This video is intended both for an individual and group setting. As you watch this video, we’ve also got a Sharing Your Testimony Sheet to help you walk through what elements you could have in your testimony.
