Evangelism Explosion - Evangelism Explosion is a 13-week on-the-job training program to help us be able to share our faith in a confident and skillful manner. If you have been fearful of sharing your faith with others, this class will be of benefit to you. This discipleship series will greatly help equip you and effectively train you to teach others also. This series of classes will balance lectures with role-playing, demonstrations, accountability, and real life experiences. Learn not only how to share your faith, but also to feel confident to meet the objections or “road blocks” that come up in your conversation. Classes are run several times throughout the year, on Sunday mornings during the 9:00 ABF hour. Please contact the Church Office for details on when the next series will begin.
Harvest Festival – This event that is designed for children, ages 4 through 5th grade and their families is held in the annually in the fall. Games, prizes, bounce houses, wagon rides, and food all combine to provide an afternoon of fun for the family. A “free” community shop is also set up providing clothing and household items that have been donated by our church family. The community is invited to come and participate – and best of all, everything is free.
Judgement House is a walk-through drama that tells a story of everyday people who are faced with life-changing decisions. Will they make the right choice? Through the use of dramatic events, one will be faced with how these decisions will affect them for eternity. This drama is presented in the first week of October. Last year over 1,100 people attended with 45 salvation decisions made.

State Fair Outreach – Each year thousands of people visit the State Fair in Tampa. The majority of these people do not know the Lord and many do not even understand the free gift that was given to us. Working in conjunction with the Hillsborough Child Evangelism Fellowship, Wordless Books are distributed at 2 different tents during the week of the fair. Workers are needed to take 4 hour shifts with openings to meet each schedule.
