The Secret of St. Paul’s Evangelization Strategy St. Paul was the greatest evangelist the Church has ever known. His impact reached across the Roman Empire. Ever wonder how St. Paul was so effective? Lucky for us, he left a record of his methodology in 1 Thessalonians! This workshop will show you how to implement St. Paul’s evangelization strategies in your classroom. Here’s a hint.

In this session, Paul will explore the necessity of understanding youth culture so that our proclamation of the Gospel will be culturally relevant and engaging.
