For more than forty years, World Impact has been dedicated to honoring and glorifying God and delighting in him among the unchurched urban poor by knowing him and making him known. Armed with this vision, we intend to recruit, empower, and release urban leaders who will plant churches and launch indigenous church planting movements throughout America and across the globe. Our Evangel School of Urban Church Planting empowers church planters to plant healthy churches among the city's poor, applying biblical wisdom to see God's churches planted in places where Christ is not known.
We make our Evangel Resource Kit available to all approved Deans of the Evangel School, i.e., those individuals who have completed and been certified through our Evangel Dean Training session. When approved Deans host their own Evangel Schools in their locales, we provide this resource package, along with the opportunity to purchase great church planting resources such as the official Evangel workbook Ripe for Harvest: A Guidebook for Planting Healthy Churches in the City. This package contains everything you need host your own Evangel School, including video teachings and devotionals, PowerPoints presentations, event templates, Evangel graphics, music files and leadsheets, and all project supporting documents. An amazing array of practical helps and resources, this package is designed to provide Deans with all they need to host successful, informative, and fruitful sessions with coaches and church plant teams in your events.
Each Evangel Resource packet contains the following:
- 34 videos covering the devotionals, session seminars, team exercises, instructions and objectives of each stage of the church planting process
- 42 separate PowerPoint presentations, along with all necessary intro, announcement, and event slides
- Multiple graphics for resources (including 3 different shirt options)
- Editable templates to be used for name tags, registration, sessions, etc.
- Praise and Worship Songs informed by the City for Mission (Mp3s, leadsheets, and .txt files provided)
- Project templates to make designing and planning your event smooth and effective (including project task chart, etc.)
Please note: all approved Deans who intend on hosting an Evangel School must purchase this official Evangel package. This also applies to all approved Evangel Schools who have hosted schools previously, prior to this package's release. These resources must be used in conjunction with an official Evangel Church Plant School under an authorized Dean in order to be certified under World Impact's church planting program. Please contact Rev. Bob Engel, World Impact's National Church Plant Director, if you would like to obtain these resources and sponsor your own church planting school in your movement, denomination, or church association [firstname.lastname@example.org]).
While we would normally sell this Evangel School Resource package for $3200, we are currently making this available at the discounted one-time price of only $512 (an 84% discount, accessible only to approved Evangel Deans). (All funds can be recouped at the hosted Evangel Schools.) Once purchased, the entire collection of Evangel Kit file resources will be available for your immediate download through links provided in your digital receipt (including links to all video files).
