CAMPUS MISSION ELECTIVES

Hoping for evangelism to be instinctive and sustainable? Longing to see gospel connections with everyday conversation so that Jesus comes up naturally and organically? This is what SPTs are about.  Experience an SPT at NTE to see whether SPTs could help you, your campus group or church, prepare for a lifetime of confident evangelism. You’ll even come away with ideas about how to take a current conversation in an evangelistic direction.

This seminar will help you to understand what Muslims are taught about Christianity, how you can share the gospel with them, and how to answer the common questions and objections they have. There will be ideas for training and missions on your campus, and what booklet, apps, and websites can help you.

Everyone loves a compelling and personal story, and there is no better story than the good news that Jesus died to save and rose to reign! So we all want to speak it, but sometimes we don’t know where to start or what to say or how to be natural and authentic. Join us to learn how to use a story you probably already know (your story!) to share the story you long to tell (God’s story!).

The Mark Drama turns Mark’s biography of Jesus into a 90-minute, action-paced, theatre-in-the-round stage production! Audience members are fully immersed in the words of Jesus, and his life, death and resurrection. Find out how your campus group or church could put on a performance! 

Being a Christian who can train another, who can train another, who can train another … .  This is the normal expectation of Jesus and the New Testament.  Be convinced of this from the Bible, and learn how we can train disciple-making disciples in our ministries.

Often we have the desire to share Jesus but just don’t know how to get the conversation started. Rattling off a gospel outline can sound like a monologue – so how do we have dialogue that ‘proclaims’ Christ? In this elective we’ll cover some practical ways to infuse your conversations with the good news of Jesus!

You’ve boldly invited a friend to read the Bible with you, and they said ‘yes’! But now what? How do you actually lead that discussion in a way that lets the Bible do the talking? This seminar will equip you to use the ‘Uncover’ method of reading Mark’s Gospel so you can confidently introduce your friends to Jesus.

Did you know that 1 in 4 students on campus in Australia are international students? Many come from nations where it is hard for missionaries to gain access. Many have never heard the gospel, or even met a Christian. But God has opened a door for us to share his gospel with the nations without having to leave Australia. Come and learn about how you can connect with international students and help them meet Jesus.

What does mission look like on the ground? Japan and Taiwan are two neighbouring countries in East Asia. Both countries love chopsticks and have a long history of ancestor worship.
