When it comes to sharing their faith most Christians feel guilty, and are scared and ill-equipped. How can they connect with people? Where can they find a relevant and relational way of sharing their faith with their peers? And how can they train other Christians to do the same?
Through XEE, believers step out of their comfort zone, find common ground with their peers, and share the Gospel effectively in their journey with God.
Leadership Training has proven to greatly enhance the success of an EE ministry. Therefore, we strongly encourage attending an XEE Leadership Training workshop or “Launch”. At an XEE Launch here’s what you receive to hold a successful XEE training ministry:
- The Gospel in an interactive and story driven format.
- How to effectively implement XEE in your local church.
- How to facilitate interactive training instead of lecturing.
- How to discover XEE concepts through Group Discussions.
- How to develop good Discussion Group Leaders.
- Practical training in XEE Role Modeling and Practice Sessions.

We’ve been working hard on continuing to add to the XEE tool set. The web team is adding elements to the XEE website and the team is writing materials that will help local groups use XEE to witness to their friends and neighbors.
Recently, Langdon Stewart, one of the original team members that helped develop XEE, was in the US helping Adam Bond, our North American director for XEE, film some new segments that we’ll use in the training. He put together a website that shows some pictures of the filming. I thought you might enjoy them.
Thanks also for praying for my time away in the US over the last few weeks. We are entering a new, exciting season of ministry in Oceania and throughout the world re-calibrating for the future. My role is changing accordingly which I will formally let you know more about soon. One of the implications is that we are looking at the next 3-5 years of ministry in Oceania and what that will look like, and how can we make the most of developing the national ministries. In the US I was able to meet with our VP for Finances and work through the accounting implications, as well as meet with the Senior VP for Operations in Atlanta and North American staff in North Carolina, strategising and planning and seeking God for the next season. I apologise if this sounds a little vague but you will hear more about this in the following months (or just give me a call). The time away was very significant and fruitful where a lot of questions were answered and even more were asked.
Whilst in the US, the trip enabled a time to meet with potential new supporters of the ministry in Oceania, including in Arizona where we had a great evening of sharing and gelato. I also worked with the North American staff in the production of an XEE DVD tool for churches to use within the with non-believers as a gospel conversation starters.
