Click here to view the Soul-Winner’s Club Training class schedule.

The SOUL WINNERS’ Club is a simple yet proven and successful 12-point local church program that teaches you how to win your first person to the Lord Jesus Christ. Once you have completed the course, with God’s enabling help you will be able to win others to the Lord on a regular basis. We pray that this program will also give you the desire to train others so that they too can experience the joys and blessings that God bestows on soul winners.

The SOUL WINNERS’ Club uses a 12-point plan that is taught over a 12-week period. It is a highly effective training program that over the years has been used successfully to lead literally thousands to the Lord. Some of the highlights of the program, in addition to learning the l2-point plan, include learning how to share your personal testimony in soul winning, memorizing verses of Scripture that pertain to soul winning, reading selections of instructional and motivational literature on soul winning and listening to sermons on soul winning by some outstanding preaches in America. Attending a weekly training meeting and going soul winning with your assigned trainer each week are also required in order to receive the full benefit of the program.

A Certificate of Completion will be given to all who satisfactorily complete the program. Upon winning your first person to the Lord, you will receive a gold The SOUL WINNERS’ Club lapel pin containing an emerald-colored stone. When you have led three persons to the Lord and they have walked the aisle in the church and made a public profession of faith, you will receive a pin with a ruby-colored stone. In addition, when fifty people have been led to the Lord, a pin with a diamond- colored stone will be presented.

The SOUL WINNERS’ Club is an on going 12-week program that meets every Wednesday at 7:00 pm downstairs in Room 101. The Starting date for each 12-week session is announced from the pulpit and can be found in the bulletin prior to each starting date as well as by clicking on the Taining Schedule link seen above.

In summary, The SOUL WINNERS’ Club is a biblical program to “use the early church soul-winning fervor of yesterday to train Christians how to win people to Jesus Christ today in order that they may be able to experience eternal life tomorrow.” We truly believe that what you learn here will produce a rewarding and life-changing experience in your Christian life, as well as in those of many others with whom you come in contact.

It is our prayer that as you are learning this program, God will place in your heart the same burden that Jesus had for lost souls. Matthew 9:36 says, “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.” May you also desire to practice faithfully what you have learned, just as the disciples did in Acts 5:42, which says, “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.”

May God bless you and make you abundantly fruitful as you go forth to do His work.
