Every One His Witness is a Lutheran evangelism program that teaches you to witness to your friends, co-workers, and any other non-churched people you may know. You’ll also learn tools to help you listen and connect better with those in your congregation. Using the LASSIE approach to witnessing (listen, ask, seek, share, invite, and encourage), you will learn how to naturally share the Good News of Jesus Christ through relational, contextual witnessing in your everyday life.
In order to assist congregations that want to learn and put into action the concepts and tools shared in Every One His Witness, the Nebraska District will have grant funds available to congregations to pay for 1/2 the cost of a kit (up to $65). Congregations that wish to share a kit, such as dual parishes, neighboring congregations, etc., may request up to $65 in grant funds to offset the costs of additional workbooks. Only one grant award per congregation.
Congregations that purchase a kit may apply for a grant from the Nebraska District. Click here for the grant application. (You do not need to sign in to a Google Drive account to view, print, or download the document.)
CPH has provided a media kit to help congregations inform members and publicize training opportunities. Click here to access the media kit.

Context Modules Available
Free, online training modules are available to anyone who has completed the core training. The context modules pick up where the core module left off. They are designed to help you use the LASSIE approach to witnessing in specific witnessing contexts. These modules are created with the help of people who have real world experience witnessing to people in these various contexts. Their knowledge, insights, and experiences will be of great value to you as you seek to speak of Jesus with people in your everyday life.
Context modules now available include:
