An Invitation to Evangelization

2014 Fullness of Truth Conference
Sharing the Joy of the Gospel.”
Houston, Texas | June 6-7, 2014
They were Jesus’ final words during his time on earth, his parting salvo to his disciples: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” (Mt 28:19).
History remembers those words as “The Great Commission”—a commission entrusted by Christ not just to Peter, John, and the other apostles present on Mount Olivet, but to the entire Church, including each one of us. The work of evangelization, of calling people to Christ, isn’t just the work of priests and bishops. It is the work of all who call Jesus “Lord.” We’re all called to proclaim who he is and how he loves us. That’s not a burden. It’s a gift. It’s a joy. At least, it’s supposed to be.

From June 6-7, 2014, join the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology in Houston, Texas, as we explore the basics and beyond of evangelization at the 2014 Fullness of Truth Conference, “Evangelizing Catholics: Sharing the Joy of the Gospel.”
Co-sponsored by Fullness of Truth, this year’s conference will help you grow in your understanding of Christ’s call to evangelize, as well as learn more about the message we share when we evangelize and how we can more fruitfully engage in evangelization.
This year’s conference will feature two talks by St. Paul Center President, Dr. Scott Hahn—the first on what it means to evangelize Catholics and be an evangelizing Catholic titled Evangelizing Catholics: The Joy of the Gospel, the second on how the angels and saints assist us in the mission of evangelization titled Angels and Saints: Helpers From on High for the New Evangelization.
Other speakers include St Paul Center Fellows Dr. Michael Barber (speaking on “Legend, Lunatic, Liar, or Lord?: Do the Gospels Tell Us the Honest Truth about Jesus?” and “Redemption, Almsgiving, and the Eucharist: Putting Our Money Where Our Mouth Is”) and Dr. John Bergsma (addressing “Evangelism is a Call for Everyone! The Why’s and How’s of Evangelizing” and “How to be a Joy-Full Christian: Lessons from Philippians”).
This year’s Fullness of Truth Conference will take place Friday evening, June 6, and all day Saturday, June 7, at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Houston.
