  4. Share the gospel at your church gatherings.
  5. Ask lots of questions:
    1. How as your weekend?
    2. Are you a Christian?
    3. What do you think of Jesus?
    4. What do you believe?
    5. Did you used to believe in God? What lead you to change your beliefs?
    6. Why do you believe what you believe?
    7. What is the ultimate authority for your beliefs? And why?
    8. What? Why? How? When? Who?
  6. Don’t speak too long at any one time.
  7. Share the overall story of the Bible (Gen-Rev); this helps people make sense of Jesus.
  8. Be honest.
  9. Be yourself.
  10. Share Scripture. (use a little Bible, your phone, or from Scripture memorization)
