Most people come to Jesus through someone they know. Therefore, you need to cultivate relationships with people far from God. But how? How can you move a conversation from casual conversation to spiritual topics?
· It’s Imperative You Expand Your Friendships:
When we have an opportunity to share Jesus with someone, we need to be ready to tell them our story. Writing your story beforehand helps you be ready at a moment’s notice! Also, an extremely effective way to share your faith story, is by printing it to give away. Sometimes we make connections with people, but don’t have the time or the opportunity to share our faith. Giving someone a printed story by saying, “Here, I wrote this. This is my faith story, and I’d like to give it you,” is a great way of making the most of every opportunity. People are receptive to something you personally wrote!
The following video and documents will help you write and print an effective personal story. Consider using the templates for your story!
· Why Print Your Own Personal Story?
How would you like to look someone right in the eye and tell them your personal faith story with heart and compassion—without leaving your computer chair? You can, by producing your own PFS video. The following videos explain all the “whys” and “hows” of producing your own PFS video right on your own computer. It’s easy! Anyone can do it! This is a great way to publish your story for social media. Send it to your friends and relatives all over the world! Maybe your own video story will even go viral!
