The Evangelism and Pioneer Team want to help congregations and individuals find the confidence to talk about their faith and tell the story of Jesus. They aim to inspire, support, and advise church leaders, parishes, and deaneries in building communities of faith that reach out to others with the good news.
The team consists of Team Leader Tina Hodgett and Faith Sharing Enabler, Andy Gray, along with several pioneer ministers, deanery and team mission enablers, Church Army evangelists, church planters, parish missioners and evangelists.
In the team is a great deal of wisdom and experience which we are happy to share. That could be offering support in the parish or running the Talking Jesus faith sharing course. This would be at no cost to the local church.
We supply training and expertise in pioneering new ways of being church. We can offer resources, guidance, and information about Fresh Expressions, pioneering, church planting and contextual mission.
For those who might be considering taking faith sharing to the next level, we would encourage you to get in touch with either Tina or Andy. We will talk through the options with you, and help you consider where God is calling you. Whether that is to exercise the gift of an evangelist, or a pioneer, or a combination of both.
