Train the Trainer 2020


Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Train the Trainer will be revamped as webinars. Please check back often for additional information and updates.


Train the Trainer will be a series of scheduled meetings to train those who will train others in The Best News, a personal evangelism tool written by James Merritt and produced by the North American Mission Board.

KBC will also provide The Best News Evangelism training kit for each church in attendance.


Train the Trainer will take place at ten locations across the state. We will allow 2 ½ hours for each meeting with approximately 2 hours being devoted to overviewing the material, and 30 minutes for a light meal (provided by the host association/church). Please allow 15 additional minutes for registration and include that in the schedule. The material we are using for 2020 is called The Best News by James Merritt and is produced by the North American Mission Board.


Pastors, church planters, associational mission strategists/directors of missions, or church leaders who have a desire to grow evangelistic leaders through training trainers.
