The REACH Columbia Union Urban Evangelism School recently graduated its first class at the school’s new center on the campus of Washington Adventist University in Takoma Park, Md.
Tiffany Brown, director, says the program gave the graduates the tools to help them be effective in soul winning and personal evangelism in whatever professions they choose.
“The preacher can only reach the people that are in church, but if you’re a dentist, psychologist or another profession, you can reach people who God brings to you in your sphere of influence,” adds Brown. “Coming to this program will teach you to be effective in soul winning,” especially in an urban setting.

Go. Tell. Serve. Three words, simple and straightforward. Yet when they are lived out in the name of the Lord, the impact is both profound and eternal.
Jesus modeled these three words for us throughout His life, and, as His followers, He directs us to go in His name and do likewise—to go and tell of His love and grace, to serve others as though we are doing so for Him. This is the purpose in His call to follow Him.
Essential to our effectiveness is that we ourselves know Jesus and accept His love and grace. When we have a personal experience with Him, we have a message to share and a pure motive to serve others.
