Evangelism Rising. Knox Fellowship is passionate about evangelism rising in universities, graduates schools and seminaries through design and development of innovative approaches to equip a new generation of Christian leaders to lead evangelism in diverse ministry settings.
Knox Fellowship has forged strategic partnerships with Asbury Theological Seminary, Academy of Evangelism in Theological Education, Great Commission Research Network, Logos Bible Software, and digital publishing house, DOPPS, LLC.
Goals. To collaborate with like-minded organizations and individuals to set the conditions for a stronger more versatile Church. We seek partnerships to act as catalysts for a new generation of leaders to master, to teach and to lead evangelism and apologetic ministries among congregations. We strive to adapt, improvise, and thrive in the shifting cultural context here in the United States characterized by the diminishing Judeo-Christian orientation; the growing religious diversity; rapidly growing segments self-identifying as non-Christians; and immigrant populations growing exponentially in U.S. cities.
