How to Fulfill the Great Commission @ Work

Do you have a burden for your unsaved friends and family? As believers, you probably hear this question many times over.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, you’ve probably noticed that young people have been dropping out of the church in record numbers. Polls, studies, and reasonable observation show that, especially among the college educated, religious affiliation all together is on the decline. As many as 70% of high school students who attend church will drop out by their sophomore year of college1.

How to Use Pocket Testaments for ESL and non-English Speakers

In case you haven’t noticed, we live in an increasingly diverse nation. It is very likely, whether you live in a big city or a small town, you encounter people who do not speak English as their first language. Do those people need the gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives?

There are 19 different languages available to share with many of the people you will meet. Some of those languages even come in bilingual versions.

Sometimes we need to break unwritten rules to reach strangers for Christ. There are evangelism opportunities everywhere we look, even on vacation. Or riding a horse carriage.

10 Tips to bring up Christ to strangers in a friendly non-awkward way

What emotions or thoughts come to mind when you hear the word “evangelism”? Is it excitement about the privilege to tell others the best news they will ever hear? Is it uncertainty about how to go about sharing the Gospel? Is it doubt that God could use you to impact someone’s life?
