Share Your Faith

During the last few years I have come to realize that many Christians do not ever share their faith with others. This means that either people are uncertain of how to share their faith or that they are being disobedient to Scripture in not sharing their faith. I believe that many people are really just not sure where to even start the conversation.

In the video below, Jeff Vanderstelt takes seven minutes to explain how he shares his faith and how he trains others in sharing their faith.

How to Share Your Faith from Acts 29 Network on Vimeo.

I honestly do not struggle that much in sharing my faith as it comes natural for me to have a conversation with someone and in most of those conversations we inevitably get to matters of faith, which gives me an opportunity to share the gospel with them. Just this week I have been placed on a team that is going to set up trainings to help others be able to share their faith at one of the largest colleges in the state of Virginia and then in Washington DC in about a month.

If you find yourself struggling to share your faith then I encourage you to take some of these ideas or concepts that Jeff mentions here and implement them into your own conversations with people. Everyone has a salvation story, we just have to be willing to open our mouths to share it with others.

  1. I think it's a sociological issue with most people, conditioned as they are with a sense of cultural propriety. In other words, they perceive certain sensibilities within which they feel they must communicate in order to be accepted and understood. I'm socially inept anyway, so I live life in a state of perpetual awkward angst. So sharing my faith is as easy for me as asking someone out lunch (which really isn't all that easy). But for most people, this is not the case.
