10 Tips For Everyday Evangelism

May 7, 2016

Tim Keller’s top 10 evangelism tips

Tim Keller, a well-known pastor in New York, spoke at the Lausanne evangelization congress in CapeTown. In his talk he gave these ten tips to help everyone in their evangelism efforts.

  1. Let people around you know you are a Christian (in a natural, unforced way)
  2. Ask friends about their faith – and just listen!
  3. Listen to your friends problems – maybe offer to pray for them
  4. Share your problems with others – testify to how your faith helps you
  5. Give them a book to read
  6. Share your story
  7. Answer objections and questions
  8. Invite them to a church event
  9. Offer to read the Bible with them
  10. Take them to a class or small group where the Gospel is explored

Keller also advised to start with 1-4. We often think that only stages 8-10 count and invest all our energy there. He suggests that to get people at stages 8,9,10 you have to put the work in at 1-4. Sometimes you’ll have to keep going round the loop multiple times.
