Practical ways of communicating the Gospel message in words, images and metaphors that connect to today’s world.
Trevor Withers is the team leader of Network Church in St Albans and Harpenden, which is part of the Pioneer group of churches. He also helps to lead Cell UK which resources small groups in churches.
Trevor studied church planting and evangelism at Spurgeon’s College. He is currently researching how the Gospel message can be communicated to connect more readily with our emerging culture and what this means for our Christian communities.
He has a heart for creativity and the arts and runs a pottery studio with a friend.
“In numerous conversations I have noticed a lack of confidence being shown by Christians about the gospel message and how we share it with our friends. What made sense for many of us once does not anymore. The tide of our Christian heritage has gone out we are left stranded on the beach, with no viable link to the new emerging culture.”
Trevor will help us to identify the challenges that face us. He will guide us in looking at the changes that have taken place in our culture, and will give us practical ways to communicate the Gospel message in words, images and metaphors that connect today. This is a timely issue and one that needs our attention.
