How to use THE FOUR

Would you like to learn new ways to present the unchanging Gospel so that its message can be passed on from one generation to another?

Introducing THE FOUR – a simple and catchy tool you can use to testify your faith and invite people to follow Jesus.

He was recently able to use THE FOUR to explain the gospel when his neighbour invited him, his wife and a few others over for dinner. As they sat in the living room, the conversation naturally turned to what each of them did for their vocations.

Showing his black wristband with the four symbols that he wears on his left wrist, Raphael told them his job title and what he did. When they asked what each of the four symbols meant, he had the opportunity to tell his faith story and explain the gospel.
