Will Training Young Adult Christians to Evangelize Using the Five Thresholds Increase Their Confidence and Comfort in Sharing Their Faith?

Abstract
With the declining of church attendance in generations younger than baby boomers, churches must shift their focus from maintenance to mission in order to avoid an existential threat. Reaching the younger generations will require a more personal approach than new programs and events. Overcoming skepticism and distrust are key factors in reaching the younger generations. The Five Thresholds Model will increase the confidence of young adults in the overall practice of evangelizing and, more specifically, in the practices of sharing their faith and inviting others to respond. The peer-to-peer evangelism training increased participants’ comfort level and confidence in sharing their faith with others.
