 The deadline is fast approaching for the 2013 Thompson Scholars program, Evangelism: A New Scorecard. This year’s event will take place April 30 – May 3, 2013, on the Columbia Theological Seminary campus. This annual event brings together pastors and other church leaders with a special interest in evangelism. The program will be led by Ralph C. Basui Watkins, associate professor of evangelism and church growth. An interview with Watkins was featured in a previous issue of Journeying Together.
