WIRE:  Watchman Institute of Religious Evangelism

Through our Institute of Religious Evangelism we offer ongoing education in cult apologetics. Although the WIRE is open to anyone interested in an in-depth understanding of the cults, we particularly seek to train lay people and church staff who desire to be a ministry resource in their own local church.

Equipping people to be a resource for your church by…

  1. Leading ongoing cult education in Sunday School, Discipleship Training, Small Groups, etc..
  2. Providing follow-up evangelism to those in cults, including friends and family members of those in your congregation.
  3. Networking with other individuals and churches to develop a strategy for ongoing ministry to the cults.
