Who We Are


Relational Evangelism training of individuals in how to share their faith is what we do. We have an 8 week online course, It's All About Relationship (IAAR), offered through Hope International University either as an auditing student for $100 or as an undergraduate or graduate student (3 units of credit) for $300. If you would like to offer the onsite course at your church or a small group you either have to have taken the online course as an auditing student at a minimum or you would have to have completed an onsite course that costs $20. For more information about becoming a course coordinator, contact Bruce Logan via email at: or John Hendee at:


You will be reading the following books: The Master Plan of Evangelism by Dr. Robert Coleman, More than a Carpenter by Josh McDowell and Effective Disciple-Making for the 21st Century by Dr. James Scott and John Hendee. The focus is on preparing to be effective in sharing the IAAR presentations and helping others as they are also learning how to do so. You will be expected to interact with the professor and other students online. Credit students will have a final paper to write. Audit students will have less to read and will not be given a grade.

To run an on onsite course as a coordinator, you must have taken the Online Course at the audit level or greater or you must have completed an Onsite course. As a coordinator you have the option of the length of the course to run. You can select from a 6 week, 8 week+ I day or 12 week course. The length of the class varies depending on the course selected. Two hours for the 6 week course, 90 minutes for the 8 week course and 75 minutes for the 12 week course. We recommend the 12 week course as we think that the more time in class the better prepared the students are to use this evangelism tool.

The students will go online during the week to get their reading assignments and to watch the professor videos. Students are expected to read The Master Plan of Evangelism (a kindle book from Amazon), More than a Carpenter (given to you at registration), Effective Disciple-Making for the 21st Century (a free download the first week) and to watch the weekly Professor Videos and associated link readings.

There are also weekly discussion questions for the students to answer before the class begins. Online the student can use the download pages to record their thoughts about the readings and videos watched to better participate in the classroom discussions. In addition to the discussions, they will begin presenting the four sessions of the It’s All About Relationship to each other. As the course moves on the students will present to others outside of the classroom to prepare them for use with friends and neighbors and people they meet the rest of their lives.

Registration is held at the beginning of the first class where the coordinator collects the class fee of $20 and gives the students a copy of “More than a Carpenter”, a coupon code as well as instructions on how to register as a student on the web site. The content of this course is similar to that used at the University.
