Confident Christianity

The Confident Christianity Training Track is a ten-week interactive course, originally designed by the UK Christian Medical Fellowship and later adapted for ICMDA by Dr Peter Saunders.

The course aims to help you understand the non-Christian mindset and share your faith confidently and articulately in the way the Apostles did it – in understandable language, in a safe place and with the opportunity for discussion. It is a programme which once caught can be taught to others.

It covers such topics as:

  • Making a worldview diagnosis
  • What makes Christianity unique
  • The journey to faith
  • Exposing presuppositions
  • God’s role and ours in evangelism
  • The gospel message
  • Apostolic models of sharing it
  • Dealing with our fears
  • Answering difficult questions
  • The best reasons for belief
  • Starting with the truth they know
  • Avoiding circular arguments
  • Dealing with relativism
  • The elements of successful evangelism
  • The faith decision

We run each course for 8 to 12 people at a time for ICMDA regions and language groups in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

Each ten-week course is led by a small group of facilitators coached by the principal trainer Dr Peter Saunders.

The ten-week long training track will involve weekly interactive Zoom sessions. Prior to each session trainees will need to watch two short training videos, read a short article and undertake a short written assignment.

Trainees will need to set aside about two to three hours a week for this track (90 minutes virtual meeting, 30 minutes watching the two training videos, 15 minutes reading and 30 minutes writing assignment).
