Turning our conversations to spiritual subjects

How to train people for spiritual conversations:

  • Don’t tell people it’s easy.
  • Encourage people to value pre-evangelism.
  • Train people to tell their stories of coming to faith.
  • Remind people evangelism can be a “team sport.”
  • Adopt the mindset of an ongoing coach rather than a one-time seminar presenter.
  • Find ways to regularly enamor people with the wonder of the gospel.
