This exciting course is open to adults of any age who have a heart for reaching others with the Gospel. Since it began, 34 people have completed the course with many going on into paid positions as evangelists, church planters and other ministry positions.

The course runs over a period of 2 years, beginning in 2024 and is facilitated by New Wine in partnership with Down and Dromore Diocese. It was developed by Through Faith Missions with the aim of producing evangelists who combine a credible level of learning, with an ability to actually ‘do the work of an evangelist’. On average the commitment is 8 to 10 hours a week split between studying/ assignments and doing evangelism.

Theological study together with a practical portfolio is undertaken to successfully complete the course and this consists of 5 prescribed modules and an Evangelists Portfolio.


The total cost of the current course is £1,800 and successful candidates will be awarded one third (£600) of this amount from the diocese. We encourage applicants to seek financial support from their local church towards the remaining amount.
