As the crowd gathered around Jesus, He left them with a very important statement: “You will be my witnesses” (Acts 1). Notice that the phrase is a statement, not a question.
Everywhere we go, we go as a witness to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We are living testimonies of the One that so loved the world that He gave of His life to save the world.
But what does it mean to be a witness? How can my witness persuade someone to believe? How can I be a witness to people who really don’t seem to care about church or the faith?
Take Heart, Take Action is a theological conference for laypeople and church workers. Featured speakers are Rev. Dr. Mark C. Wood (LCMS Witness & Outreach Ministry), Rev. Greg Finke (Dwelling 1:14), Rev. Dr. Lawrence Rast, Jr (President of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Ind.), Rev. Todd Jones (Michigan District Assistant to the President – Mission Education and Support) and Rev. Dr. David P.E. Maier (Michigan District President). They will share biblical insights into our calling as witnesses of the Gospel, as well as practical advice on how to do so.
