Advance Bootcamps are a brand-new resource from The Message Trust designed to make evangelism accessible and fruitful for everyone.

Advance involves small groups who meet regularly to encourage and sharpen one another, prioritising accountability in sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. Advance Bootcamps are a natural first step towards joining the movement.
Advance Bootcamps will help you grow in clarity and confidence in the message of the gospel, and help you develop ways to share your faith more easily in every situation.

If you’re passionate about seeing a culture shift in your church and being part of a viral gospel movement that will impact everyone around you, we want to equip you through tailored teaching, workshops and practical sessions that make boldly sharing the gospel natural for everyone, not just a few.

What's Involved?

Each Bootcamp can be tailored to the needs of your group or church but key components on offer are:

  • Seminar/workshop sessions on ‘What is The Gospel?’, ‘How To Prepare Yourself for Mission’, ‘Platform¬†Preaching to Bus Stop Conversations’ and more
  • Real-life tips and practical advise for what to do and what to say
  • Learning to know and share your own story with others
  • Practical sessions and exercises to sharpen you effectiveness
  • Activity based opportunities to put sharing the gospel into practice in your area

Bootcamps can be run one of several ways:

  • Ninety-minute sessions of encouraging teaching
  • Half-day courses with several teaching sessions including practical exercises
  • Full Bootcamp experience (two-day course or weekly regular sessions) covering all material including putting into practice on the street sessions

Sessions Include:

  • Evangelism: A calling for everyone or the few? An introductory session explaining why it’s both, and how they’re different. Plus, why we preach the gospel in the first place.
  • What is the gospel? Understanding the importance of Jesus’ life death and resurrection as all essential to our gospel narrative. This session will address our awareness of the full gospel and the dangers when we preach a deficient or me-centered gospel.
  • How to share the gospel. A¬†session to develop confidence in our understanding of the gospel, while keeping it as simple and accessible as possible. This session explores practical tools like The4Points and the ‘three circles’.
  • Three key areas of readiness. Inward preparation, outward proclamation and the effectiveness of prayer and the prophetic.
  • How to share your story. Tips and techniques for using your own testimony in sharing Jesus.
  • Faith in action. Exploring various ways to engage with people and how to make the most of each setting, with the do’s and don’t’s of what to do!
