Nathan and Jena Wells recently self-published an evangelistic workbook for believers. Nathan is the founder and executive director of SEEDnet, a Charis Fellowship cooperative ministry that plants churches in socially, economically, emotionally, and developmentally oppressed areas. Nathan is an elder at Grace Ranch Church, a Charis Fellowship and SEEDnet church plant, in Ashland, Ohio.
Their book, GOSPELING: A Personal Guide to Sharing the Gospel, is a training resource created to help believers do one-on-one evangelism. SEEDnet and its leaders are well-versed and well-trained in evangelism, specifically in a one-on-one setting. They weekly go to apartment complexes and trailer parks and proclaim the Gospel to people in order to plant a church within that community. To date, SEEDnet has established 95 church plants with this meet-you-where-you-are method.
Nathan and Jena recognized that this type of evangelism is not something most believers are comfortable doing. GOSPELING grew out of a desire to use SEEDnet’s gifting and experiences to bless the greater Church with evangelism training. The workbook is designed for both individuals and groups.
The workbook is divided into three sections: The Motive for Gospeling, The Mindset of Gospeling, and The Movement of Gospeling. Each section contains lessons and questions for readers to work through. As an individual moves through the workbook, the goal is that they will gain clear knowledge of the beauty, power, and simplicity of the Gospel and then have more confidence and passion to share it. If a church wants a more in-depth training experience, SEEDnet offers training seminars to accompany the book.
Nathan and Jena want their workbook to be a resource to equip the church. GOSPELING workbooks can be purchased directly from SEEDnet for $5 each.
Nathan said, “We want to empower Christians to proclaim the Gospel and its benefits to themselves daily, proclaim the Gospel and its benefits to other Christians daily, and proclaim the Gospel to the lost daily.”
