This week’s Say Yes to Holiness 1 on 1 Conversation podcast episode is with Jared Zimmerer, Director of the Word on Fire Institute, and continues the OSV Innovation Talk speaker series.
So, can Kung Fu inform modern evangelization? The answer is yes and the tactics will startle you!
This was a part of our conversation as well as Jared’s talk, entitled, “Bruce Lee Was A Master Evangelist” which will send you on a mission to explore how the practices of a martial artist can assist in sharing the Gospel in the 21st Century. Jared’s love for Bruce Lee taught him principles of incredible success for sharing Christ’s message with the world. You are invited to stand alongside Jared and myself in wonder of this incredible icon of film and martial arts as well as appreciate the practicality of simplicity.
Jared Zimmerer is the Senior Director of the Word on Fire Institute as well as an author and speaker. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, a Master’s Degree in Theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary and is currently studying for a PhD in Humanities from Faulkner University. He and his wife Jessica live in North Texas with their six children.
During our conversation, Jared shared a bit of his story and how he came to be at Word on Fire Institute, while running the gamut of topics about how to find places of truth in a culture; the challenges of evangelizing in a postmodern world; using film and literature to encounter and engage with others; the pedagogy of evangelization; why we can’t be afraid to go deep into the faith, and the fundamental reality that “you cannot evangelize a culture that you do not love.” Find out why and more in:
I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with Jared, and I pray you receive much hope, inspiration and encouragement as I did so you may continue doing WHATEVER IT TAKES to feach and every day of your life.
