He’s The Solution Ministries’ mission is to equip Christians with the confidence to share their faith. From online sermons and Bible study to the annual Be Bold for Jesus Conference, their goal is to provide saints with the tools they need to help build up the body of Christ. The ministry’s founders believe they were called to help Christians to recognize and share God’s unconditional grace. Additionally, Lee and Jaclyn Arnold want to teach them to be comfortable evangelizing. In other words, telling others about God’s promises to humankind.
According to an Evangelism Explosion study conducted by Lifeway Research in April 2022, Christians said they are willing to talk to others about their faith. Yet, despite their desire, few had shared the Gospel with a stranger in the past six months. Lifeway Ministries Research Executive Director Scott McConnell explained: “Many Christians say they agree sharing their faith is important. But many also need encouragement and to be shown how to share the good news about Jesus Christ with others.”
Ministries like the upcoming 5th Annual Be Bold for Jesus Conference exist to empower and educate. Its website discusses the conference’s purpose. “Now, more than ever, [it] is critical for each individual to [share] the Gospel of Jesus [with] everyone we encounter.
Being politically correct has convinced us to hide our light under a bushel. But we should [talk] about Jesus wherever we are, especially in our current culture, where we are shutting God out of our schools, businesses, and society. [We are] going against what the Bible outlines for our lives.”
Be Bold for Jesus Ministry
The Be Bold for Jesus Conference website says it is the largest discipleship gathering in the Pacific Northwest.
This 3-day in-person and live stream meeting is happening for the first time at the Spokane, Washington Convention Center on October 13-15, 2023.
Another first for this ministry is the Youth Breakout Sessions for 6th to 12th graders. These sessions were created because it is important to equip parents and children with the tools to share and defend their faith with peers. Furthermore, according to Southern Nazarene University, people at this age are more receptive to hearing God’s plan for them than they might be when they reach 20.
