We want to draw alongside and encourage you as a pastor or church leader. By offering a TERM Seminar for your congregation, you can add strength to their faith and reduce fear of sharing it.


TERM (The Emmaus Road Message) is a one-day or two-evening seminar for your church and others in your area. It highlights both the message and the method that Jesus and the Apostle Paul used in sharing the gospel with the seeker, the confused, and the hardened. Learn how they used the Bible’s historical narrative to overcome objections and to bring clarity.

Sessions on sharing the gospel clearly

Learn how to…

  • Share the gospel with the Biblically illiterate, confused or hardened
  • Overcome fear, uncertainty and lack of understanding
  • Make the most of spur-of-the-moment and long-term opportunities
  • Engage and communicate without being preachy
  • Use Biblical stories to explain the gospel
  • Help people understand the life-changing central message of the Bible
  • Make being an ambassador for Christ part of a lifelong lifestyle  opportunities


The TERM Seminar is co-presented by two GoodSeed teachers who bring a lifetime of Bible study and real-life experience teaching both believers and non-believers in North America and in cross-cultural contexts around the world.

It offers great Bible based theology in short period of time. It starts at the beginning, creation and finishes at the end, eternal life. Doesn’t exclude the Old Testament to introduce the plan of salvation. Doesn’t jump from place to place yet offers or uses the whole Bible. Using visuals – it helps to remember and also helps to clarify and simplify the message. It highlights the most important moments in the story. Thank you very much and God bless you in your ministry. ~ Annie*

It has helped me to understand the Bible more and helped me to understand the sacrifices of the Old Testament more then what I could understand by just reading the Bible. It helped me understand better and better Jesus’ death and Him taking our sins on Him and how He justifies us. It encouraged me more that there is only ONE WAY to heaven. ~ Vincent*

I really enjoyed this because although already a believer, it really connected the Old Testament with the New and really just showing how God had a perfect plan from the beginning. ~ Gerald*

The Emmaus Road Message unites the Biblical stories in the single story of God’s redemptive plan. It gives me a new appreciation for the unity of Scripture, it’s relevance and the way that it’s unity over hundreds of years authenticates the gospel message as God’s plan, not man’s invention. ~ Keith*

This course, the materials and the method have shown me how to deliver the gospel to unbelievers. It provides an excellent set of contrasting pictures to help explain the truth of God, his full character, and how the world can and does distort the gospel. In a very small amount of time I believe that this material will bring people to a position: either trust in God or turn your back. The reward, and consequence, is demonstrated inarguably leaving the choice in the hand of the student. The necessity to exercise our freewill is made perfectly clear. ~ Timothy

As someone who has been sharing the gospel with others for most of my life this is the very best and most potentially blessed, effective “method” I have ever seen. I am eager to begin. The entire seminar, God has been pouring through my heart and mind, names and faces of people with whom He wants me to share his truths. But more importantly, by doing so, they will in turn not only believe in Him, but also share with others. ~ Wendy

It has help me understand justification, and that I am secure in Christ, because salvation is based on His work, and not my efforts. ~ Andrew *

It has put all the pieces together and answered the many questions I had. Thank you very very much! This has truly been life changing! ~ Darian*

It has brought tremendous clarity to my about the continuity of Scripture. It helped me to understand the connection of the Old Testament to the gospel of Christ. I wish I had been taught this years earlier. It would have helped my understanding and some miss-conceptions about scripture. This seminar has completely changed my approach to teaching/evangelizing, preaching and studying of scripture. God has used the training to light a fire in me, an excitement to share His Good News using the TERM method. I have grown in my understanding more in the last 3 days than in the last 5 years. Thank you. Keep up the work. Don’t change a thing. ~ Al*

First of all Thank you, even with the sore muscles from sitting I could not think of a better use of time. This has been a time of refreshing. I told my mom it’s like my head had all this information in it and over the years, like a clothes closet it has gotten to be unorganized and a mess. All the knowledge is still there but needed to be cleaned up and re-organized. I have attended 5 years of Bible school and have worked at the Bible camps for 12+ years and this time has renewed my mind and reminded me of what really counts it is so easy to get swayed and confused and start to wonder… But to hear the truth the real truth of the Gospel is refreshing instead of being bombarded with the relative truth the world jams down our throat and overwhelms our minds. Thank you again. You are a Blessing and great ambassadors of Christ. I am like a computer that has been defragmented and put back to proper working order. ~ Candace*

It has been beneficial to me because I realize that I can teach just through reading this book. It is a way I can teach in my busy schedule without spending hours and hours in preparation. ~ Ben*

By This Name Term seminar, clearly outlines YAHWEH’s plan of salvation through the entire Bible. It was so thorough of everything someone coming from a post-modern worldview needs to know about who God is, and why we should trust Him. The message is deep, yet easy to understand. I feel confident is being used by God to go through this study with some lost sheep in my life, and I can’t wait to get started with them! ~ Janie*
