From spring through fall, you can find Emmanuel Fontaine at the train station or the supermarket, meeting people and sharing the Gospel.
“Evangelism is everybody’s business,” said Fontaine, pastor of Grace and Faith Christian Church in Melrose, Mass. “Every believer is a missionary.”
Fontaine has been involved in evangelism ministry for 30 years, and since 2010, he has been instrumental in organizing an annual Haitian evangelism conference in cooperation with the BCNE. Representatives from more than 40 Haitian churches attend to receive theological training and learn evangelism methods in English and Creole.
People often tell Fontaine they feel “more confident” after attending a conference, and he has seen even new believers boldly apply what they have learned in witnessing conversations. “There are a lot of people who have the desire to share the Gospel, but they’re not sure about the best approach,” Fontaine said. “We want to equip people.”
