Decade of Evangelism

The decade of the 1990s was declared the Decade of Evangelism by resolution of the Lambeth Conference of 1988. It called the provinces and dioceses of the Anglican Communion, in cooperation with other Christians, to make this a time of “renewed emphasis on making Christ known to the people of his world.” A. Wayne Schwab, Evangelism Officer of the Episcopal Church in the early 1990s, and the Standing Committee on Evangelism, initiated several programs to implement the Decade of Evangelism. The programs included the Partners in Evangelism training and the E-Share publications.
