Onsite School of Evangelization
NEW CLASSES ENROLLING FOR JANUARY 2019
The Mission Is Urgent. The Moment Is Now.
Responding to the Great Commission of Jesus to go out into the whole world and make disciples, the St. Paul Evangelization Institute is excited to announce our new initiative: The St. Paul School of Evangelization!
Our school is designed to help ordinary Catholics learn their extraordinary identity and live as evangelists of Jesus Christ! We offer a unique academic program paired with a multifaceted ministry approach that engages and encourages each student to learn, grow and go! The school can be taken as a one or two year program. The one year program offers a basic certificate in evangelization. The two year program offers an advanced certificate in evangelization (leadership formation year).
At the school we will:
- Equip and empower ordinary Catholics to live out their extraordinary call as missionary disciples.
- Use the best methods, insights, and strategies of effective evangelization.
- Teach students how to authentically proclaim the full Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.
- Help students experience supernatural charisms which sparks revival in every area of their life.
- Foster student growth through a specialized ministry team that accompanies each participant every step of the way.
- Lead students to apply knowledge and gain confidence through small group learning, real world experience, and best practices!

Academic Approach: Scripture and Tradition
Our school is the perfect place to grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom through engaging lessons and small groups. Our academic approach employs a mixture of theological formation, study, and reflection with the study of Sacred Scripture as our primary tool. Students will read from The Holy Bible, The Catechism of the Catholic Church, Evangelii Nuntiandi by Pope Paul VI, Redemptoris Missio and Novo Millennio Ineunte by Pope St. John Paul II, Evangelii Gaudium by Pope Francis, and much more.
Ministry Approach: Trained Discipleship Team
Our ministry team models the discipleship process of Jesus through investment, assessment, and accompaniment to help students flourish! Each student is assigned a member of our discipleship team who prayerfully partner with them over the course of the program to help provide the following:
- Application and experience in evangelization strategies.
- Regular prayer ministry opportunities.
- Ministry outings and other hands-on experiential opportunities.
- Encouragement and constructive feedback.
- Support of student goals in different areas of personal and professional life.
- Facilitate growth of supernatural gifts for the sake of evangelization.

Why You Should Join
Pope Francis says that the history of salvation is a “great stream of joy” and is the source of our “missionary option … Our missionary impulse.” We at the St. Paul School of Evangelization want you to dive in this stream and learn to swim in it. We want to help you effectively share with others the joy of living out your identity in Christ and walking with others towards their eternal destiny! We’ve got great content, student-centered instructors, and a school environment where you can pray and practice the skills you learn! If you’re ready, we’ll meet you where you are at and help you dive ever more deeply into the “essential mission of the Church”!
