* No Short Cuts
* No Easy Fixes
* No Smoke Screens
This approach does require some explanation to new
participants. Contact us through our
eMail Dispatch and we can
furnish a phone number or Postal Address. But, this article
will give you the gist of what can be done.
The main objective is to not let this sit.
People are dying and will forever suffer, if God's people do not
make an effort to take the Gospel to them.
* Give them opportunity for a choice.
* Give God opportunity to bless.
Soul Winning is basically 2 areas
* Shift Leader - Worker
* Witness Pamphlet
* The Key
* Local Church Guidance
* Unique Experience
* Get started
Winning is basically 2 areas:
1. greeting, meeting, seating prospects in an effort to get them in front of an open Bible
2. Using an open Bible, to take prospects through salvation
Of the 2, the first one takes the most time and
requires a huge amount of classroom study.
We exclaim ...
Give your students
hands-on experience with the second part
first. Sounding backwards? Hardly. Once a trainee has
experience in the second part of presenting the Gospel, the first
part comes easy, with barely any training at all.
How can this be done?

Shift Leader by passes all the training by
using 3 Questions to qualify a prospect for a witness by a
Worker by passes all the training by waiting

Shift Leader only has to learn 3 Questions and the
only has to learn how to impart the Gospel or simply use our

Shift Leader find enough prospects for 1-4
If there is a good crowd, some Shift Leaders keep 8-10
We go on the premise that everyone wants to be saved, but have never
been asked the right question. Over many years of experience, we
have worked up a set of questions that have served us well, as well
as the churches who have learned how to use them. You can see how to
use these 3 Questions in our
= Seated Method. There is no charge, no cost. God gave to
us, we pass it along. We do like to reinforce things with personal
instruction, to ...
* Let the
Shift Leader know what not to do
* Emphasize areas of importance
Once a person is very familiar with the second part
(taking prospects through the scriptures) the first part (getting
the prospect in front of an open Bible) becomes
rather simple, even superfluous. Any soul winner with years of
experience will exclaim that they do not use all the preliminaries
taught in most soul winning courses.
"When you know where you are going, it is much
easier to get started and even arrive on schedule."
G. Steven Andres
The problem with beginners is not being able to get to the Bible
without going through all the calisthenics of ...
* "How are you?"
* "You have a very nice home."
* "Do you go to church somewhere?"
None of this kind of exercise is needed to witness to friends or
relatives or neighbors or co-workers or schoolmates. All that
is needed is a confidence in using the Scriptures.
Witnessing to strangers is mostly to spread the Gospel and for
personal experience. So to be
able to witness to people you know, you must learn a lot of "Stuff"
you don't need.
Therefore, we suggest you use Public Events as your classroom.
This by-passes all the warm up talk and moves members directly to
the second part, Bible use.
Leader - Worker
Shift Leader is trained to work the front of the booth to Greet,
Meet and Seat prospects to whom the rest of the members, as
Most think, "Well now you have to train the
Shift Leader the traditional first part." Not so. This
is where the beauty of Public Events comes into the play. Many
prospects are open-hearted at Fairs, Festivals, Flea Markets, etc.,
and do not require all the
* getting acquainted
* looking for
a chance to bring up the Gospel
Neither does the
Leader have to deal with the questions and objections. To help
even more, we have developed the
3 + 3 + 3 = Seated Method.
Method takes only about 15 minutes to train
to Greet, Meet and Seat the prospect. We
usually take another 45 minutes to SHOW them what NOT to do.
Everyone is always shocked at how simple this is. A reasonable
person can become 80% to 95% effective and productive after 10 to 30
minutes of work (notice we said "work", not training).
Shift Leader eliminating
the first part of
the traditional training in Soul Winning, this leaves the
care for the second part, Bible use.
We have also developed a
Witness Pamphlet which
the Worker can READ
to the prospect, the first few times a witness is attempted. This allows for very little training
for the worker. But we do like to spend a service with the
entire church to put prospective
workers at ease so they will
only understand ...
Workers only witness to prospects who have
ASKED TO SEE what it takes to be born again.
Workers do not have to
* deal with questions
* search for rebuttal scriptures
Shift Leaders do not have to either. The
3+3+3 = Seated Method cares for 100% of all seekers and 90% of
the "Tire Kickers" and casual "Bible Scholars".
A wise pastor will be
present in the booth to help members with their hang-ups, habits, fears, rabbit-trailing
and so on in their witness. All the things taught by
traditional soul winning methods.
No other soul winning endeavor affords this kind of ...
