Tuesday Talk with Tim

Your story is as unique to you as a thumbprint. Think of this, not one person who has ever lived has your exact upbringing, education, family dynamic, or experiences. There’s nothing more powerful then to share your own story of transformation. This is a Christian post and I realize that not all of my readers … Continue reading Tuesday Talk with Tim

VIDEO: Prevangelism

This message is about Philip and the Ethiopian from Acts 8 and was taught by me at Abundant Life's church wide evangelism training event in April 2019.

The Stones in the Shoes of the Gospel of Peace

OK, I've heard a false statement over and over in reference to evangelism, that when someone rejects the gospel, "...they're not rejecting you. They're rejecting Jesus." There's one BIG problem with that. I believe that the people who say it are well-intentioned and that they're not bad people - they're just wrong.

How to Share the Gospel on the Go

The best type of evangelism is done through the basis of relationships but sometimes you don’t have that luxury. Christians need to be ready whenever the need arises to give the gospel, whether or not there is an ongoing relationship with the person. This is typical when you meet people on a plane, in another … Continue reading How to Share the Gospel on the Go
