If you’ve been wanting to help a small group, Sunday school class, or your entire church learn how to witness using The Way of the Master, this comprehensive course is the ideal training tool!

These lessons will teach you to overcome your fears by using a proven, powerfully effective way to make the gospel make sense. You won’t be at a loss for words. You don’t need to be an expert in apologetics. Instead, you’ll learn the forgotten biblical principle of bypassing the intellect (the place of argument) and speaking directly to the conscience (the place of the knowledge of right and wrong)—the way Jesus did.

Using a captivating teaching style, Kirk and Ray not only tell you how to witness but also show you, through fascinating on-the-street conversations with gang members, atheists, cult members, intellectuals, etc.

Weekly homework assignments will gradually coax you, step-by-step, out of your comfort zone to reach your loved ones for Christ. You will be inspired and motivated as you learn, watch, and then do.

DVD version includes:

  • 8 lessons on 4 DVDs
  • 4-CD Set containing the audio portion of the teaching
  • 120-page Study Guide (See note below)
  • Quick Reference Card to help you remember what to say (See note below)
  • 300 gospel tracts to get you started in witnessing conversations
  • 30-second and 3-minute promotional video segments
  • Printable bulletin insert and poster
  • Printable Certificate of Achievement

PLEASE NOTE: This course contains one Study Guide and one Quick Reference Card. You will need to purchase additional study guides and quick reference cards for each person in your class.

The Way of the Master has been commended by John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, Joni Eareckson Tada, Josh McDowell, and many other Christian leaders:

The Way of the Master is a fresh television program that grabs your attention from the opening scene and sustains it throughout the entire program. The interviews with people on the street are a vivid revelation of the terrible need people have for the Christ of the Gospel. I was encouraged and motivated, and you will be too.”
—David Jeremiah

“Thanks to Kirk and Ray for seeking to motivate believers to fulfill the Great Commission, and for staying true to the biblical message of repentance from sin and forgiveness in Christ.”
—John MacArthur

The Way of the Master series has turned my church into soul-winning machines!”
—Pastor G.F. Watkins, Texas

“My life will never be the same. My church will never be the same.”
—Pastor Paul Yanchek, Ohio

    Just wanted to let you know that this course you put together is INCREDIBLE! Kirk, Ray and all of those amazing people who helped bring this to fruition did a fantastic job with, I am sure, the help of God’s Holy Spirit. I find that help to be very evident in this course. THANK YOU for all of the work and the money it took to produce this study. I have a very small Bible study group doing the course at my house right now and we are loving it. Thanks again!

    I’m a pastor of a small church and chaplain of a State prison. We did the way of the master training course 10 maybe 12 years ago with great success in helping our members of the church to get out and share the gospel with family friends and even strangers. So we wanted to do the same at the prison.
    We ordered new study guides to go along with what we had, which was the DVDs from 10 to 12 years ago. When we receive them seeing it didn’t quite match up with the DVDs we had, we decided to go ahead and just order a new set of the DVDs to go with the new books. We had ordered originally 30 books however we have 32 students signed up.
    Seeing the good response that we got from the inmates wanting to take the course we had had plans to invest in another hundred books. However due to the unfriendliness of the operator that took the order in answering some of my questions on the new DVDs, I am rethinking the additional books.

    The material and training is awesome….. Customer service not so much.

    We completed this course at our church over a month ago and it really has started something here! We are still going out once a week to share the Gospel! In fact, last week one of our more timid members who attended the course led her friend to the Lord while at the pool using the Way of the Master and baptized her then and there!

    A friend and I are currently teaching this course in New Brunswick, Canada. By week 6, people who had never seen a Gospel tract before were going out of their way to approach coworkers and even strangers with the Gospel message. The best part about this course is that it is Biblical, and therefore it works. As a full time open air evangelist, I recommend this training course consistently to everyone who wants to learn how to witness and share the Gospel effectively and for His glory.

    This is the best information I have ever seen on how to share the Gospel true to the Scriptures. I continue to use it over and over again. Thank you .. many souls have been exposed to the Gospel as a result of your great training course!

  6. rikel67

    I bought the basic training to go through it myself. I then felt lead to go through with my wife and two children. To see my 10 year old daughter and 12 year old son giving out tracks and share their faith is a blessing to a father worth more than any thing on this earth. My family and I will be going to the next level. Thank you. May God truly to continually bless your ministry.

    All I can say is “WOW!” I have never felt more empowered as a Christian! This training course has made me bold for the gospel. I now know what to say and how to say it. Thanks for helping me overcome my fear and live out the great commission

  8. tract7777

    Thank’s so much for this training product. I am very timid about talking to people I don’t know, but the icebreakers provided have given me a way to go through the ten commandments to show people why they need Jesus and how they can be saved. I used the Way of the Master method on a guy who said he had been in prison several times, and he ask me to pray for him, and when I was walking away, he told his girlfried, ‘This was meant to be. I feel different’. I see the Holy Spirit working on many.

    Probably the best product they have available! Learn the ground fundamentals of how Jesus and the Apostles reached the lost and put them to use. They teach you to use the law to drive people to grace see Peters first sermon in Acts! This product helps individuals, groups, teams and whole churches deliver the gospel in a way that leaves people thinking instead of saying no “thank you” or “I done did that already!”. These BIBLICAL BASED methods cause thinking from “saved” & unsaved!

  10. timloyal

    This by far is the best teaching of scripture I have ever seen and I grew up Pentecost and have known to preach the law. I failed in which law to preach. The Moral Laws are far greater I see in conversion then the rest of the Laws combined. What to do when the testament is deflected back at the witness as the person knows the witness and what they have done in their life also. Ie. “well you have no right to preach to me as you have done this.”

    This course has changed my life. After years in a Seeker Driven ministry and months of trying to ‘UN-teach’ the doctrine I learned there, The Way of The Master training course has propelled me in the right direction and given me an absolute hunger to study Gods word and to fulfill The Great Commission.
