Communicating the Good News with Buddhists

led by Rolf Lepelaar Saturday, March 19th from 9:30pm-12pm @ Yagoona Anglican Church, 213 Auburn Road, Yagoona


Food and space: There will be a light meal provided after the training. We want everyone who wants to be a part of this training day to come. So please let us know now by booking online now. Freewill donations for Rolf and the food will be gladly received. 

Did you know Buddhist worldview and practice is commonly promoted in movies, advertisements and corporations? Did you know there are many in our community that either identify as Buddhist or are influenced by Buddhist spirituality? This training morning is for everyone who wants to learn how to better share the good news about Jesus with Buddhists. The training day will cover the following significant questions: What is the Buddhist worldview? What is Buddhist spirituality? Why is Buddhism attractive and popular in the West? How does Buddhism blend with a culture - particularly with postmodern Western culture? What are the different forms of Buddhism? What differences are there between Asian Buddhists and Western Buddhists? What are obstacles to Buddhists believing in and following Jesus? How do we approach relating with and sharing the good news with Buddhists? How do we make the gospel attractive to Buddhists without compromising on the message? How do we help young Christians from a Buddhist background to grow in Christ? 

Bio: Rolf Lepelaar was a missionary in Cambodia, a strongly Buddhist country, from 1996-2016. For this ministry he researched widely on Buddhism. He has much experience in discipling and studying the Bible with Christians from a Buddhist background, living in a Buddhist culture and speaking with Buddhists about Jesus. He has led multiple seminars on this topic in Australia and Cambodia. He also teaches HSC Studies of Religion, which includes in depth study of Buddhism. Sign up for Communicating the Good News

we must not forget that we are not the first generation to face such challenges.”

Don Carson foreword in Honest Evangelism by Rico Tice


Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil

against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, 

for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Jesus, Matthew 5:11-12
