Overview

Sometimes the best way to tell someone about Jesus and His gift of Salvation is through paper-literature. Learn how to use this type of evangelism to meaningfully interact with persons who are looking (or could be looking) for hope in Jesus.

Investiture Achievement Connection: This Honor is related to the Investiture Achievement requirements for GUIDE Spiritual Discovery which require completion of either the Personal Evangelism, the Bible Evangelism or the Literature Evangelism Honor.
