In a previous blog on Evangelism, I mentioned the value of setting students up for Evangelism success. Now, before I move on, let me just clarify. There is no A + B = Angels Rejoicing in Heaven. In other words, God is in charge, and it is up the Spirit of God moving in the heart of that individual. A teen could have a perfect Gospel presentation, and the person listening could still say no thanks.
That being said, it is important you give your students the tools to succeed in evangelism. One was mentioned here, giving you the website for the wordless bracelets and 4 points bracelets. These are so valuable because you do not need to bring any materials, simply wear the bracelet for a visual presentation. It’s like having a PowerPoint presentation on your arm.
- The Mission Ball – A soccer ball with the Gospel? Many mission trips will have a language barrier. This tool can break the ice, and with soccer being a universal sport language, this could be your ticket to a Gospel conversation. Their website describes it as “simply a soccer ball covered with Biblical text. It includes the 10 Commandments, God’s simple plan of Salvation, and selected Scripture.”
- May I Ask You a Question Tracts – These come in multiple languages and are simple to use. Many people who have used these tracts call them simple, clear, and effective.
- Solarium – Are you a visual person like me? These tracts provide a visual presentation, by presenting the Gospel through pictures. A tool developed by Campus Crusade, and is described on their website as 50, 4×6 original photographic images and 5 simple questions that allow you to enter and explore the lives of people around you. Soularium is designed to create a space for authentic dialogue with people about their life and spiritual journey. It’s perfect to use with students, neighbors, co-workers, friends and family – people of all ages!”
- EE – 2 Diagnostic Questions – Use these questions to begin Gospel conversation: 1. Have you come to a place in your spiritual life where you know for certain that if you were to die today you would go to heaven, or is that something you would say you’re still working on? 2. Suppose that you were to die today and stand before God and He were to say to you, “Why should I let you into my heaven?” What would you say?
- eCube – This cube designed Gospel presentation is great for child evangelism. It’s easy to learn and use, and is a fun way to present the Good News. This valuable resource also comes in a kids version.
