Learn how to share the Gospel
Learn how to share the Gospel with a practical, 4-minute crash course training by Greg Stier and a set of resources designed to help activate a bold and daring faith!
Many teens and adults don’t share their faith simply because they don’t know how to bring it up or explain the Gospel. An easy and simple way to start Gospel conversations is through the Ask-Admire-Admit strategy:
- ASK: Get to know people. Listen to them and learn their story. Ask questions about their background and spirituality.
- ADMIRE: As a person shares their faith background, point out things about their religion you admire (i.e. dedication, missions).
- ADMIT: Emphasize that as a Christian, you are a messed up sinner who needs salvation. Transition into your story and the story of the Gospel.
As you transition into the Gospel story, use the G.O.S.P.E.L. method to explain what you believe.
- God created us to be with Him.
- Our sins separate us from God
- Sins cannot be removed by good deeds.
- Paying the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again.
- Everyone who trusts in Him alone has eternal life.
- Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever.
End the conversation with these two questions:
- Does that make sense?
- Is there anything holding you back right now from putting your faith in Jesus?
