If your team has not completed the free online evangelism courses, ACT Personal Evangelism, and Save the Mother, Save her Child (SMSC), it would be a good idea to add those basic courses to your in-service calendar.  The basics of conversational evangelism and the role play segments in the newly updated SMSC training will provide a good foundation for all workers in your center.  Click EvanTell Online Training.  You may set up a Group for your center and invite all of your workers, Board Members, and church supporters to join at no cost.  Your Group list shows each person registered for course(s) and their progress in completing each course.

EvanTell’s Save the Mother, Save her Child ministry has trained and equipped over 700 pregnancy centers in the U.S. and 40 overseas.  This experience, and on-going consultation on center operations and spiritual formation for center workers has provided EvanTell with significant knowledge and relationships with faith-based pregnancy centers in the U.S. and around the world.
