Testify Training Camp

Join us for a 4-day (4-night) camp of witnessing training and outreach. Mornings are spent in evangelism training at the camp; afternoons are spent putting into practice what we learned at the Iowa State Fair, which includes helping at the Answers in Genesis gospel booth. Due to staff and space limitations, we are offering two camps this year.

You Will Experience:
  • Practical training in witnessing and apologetics
  • One-on-one coaching and opportunity to glean tips from others in action
  • Evening fellowship and opportunity for Q&A
You Will Learn To:
  • Transition conversations with unbelievers from natural to spiritual topics
  • Pass out gospel tracts with confidence and skill
  • Use creation science as a starting point
  • Be winsome and gentle
  • Use questions to generate gospel discussions
This camp is for anyone with a heart for the lost, ages 16 and up 

No previous witnessing experience required.

Feedback from Previous Testify Camps

“All the teachings were excellent - I especially liked the practical tips on the last day of camp.” - Carol

“Thank you for your many examples of how to be a witness or missionary in everyday life. Only a continuous relationship with our Lord will give us continued strength, creativity, and concern to make use of each opportunity the Lord puts before us.”  - Teresa

“I had a great time at the booth, praying, and street witnessing, but my highlight might have been street witnessing! It’s hard to choose.” - Kaylee

“I witnessed to a lady and then left for another group. She called me back then and we talked for 20 min. All sorts of questions, really interesting. Amazing.”
