Summer Travel Idea

May 24, 2016

A lot of people travel during the summer, whether it’s for vacation or work, or to visit relatives. If it is more than across town, that means stopping along the way at least for gas if you’re driving. If you fly, there are even more stops, and more interactions with people you’ve never met before.

Saturday Comments

April 26, 2016

Some people have interesting comments and questions as you share the Gospel at the free speech plaza in downtown Eugene. Then again, you could probably hear some of the same kinds of things in the city where you live too. Here are a few of them:

Evaluation

October 14, 2015

Two friends of mine were preaching the Gospel at the University of Oregon. No one would stop to listen. A couple people yelled profanity at them, but that was it. The next week we asked people to evaluate the speakers just so that we could share the Gospel one to one. We even offered people [...]

Wishing to remember

September 23, 2015

Saturday Market’s free speech area was jammed with people. There were people selling glass pipes, crystals, and wooden jewelry boxes. A few had what looked like a junk drawers worth of stuff laid out in front of them to sell.
I set up where I was going to share the Gospel, and do a money for [...]

The Bible says…

July 13, 2015

Your story

February 13, 2015

Do Christians automatically know how to share the Gospel?
According to Ephesians 4:11-12 evangelists are to equip the saints for service for the building up of the body of Christ. Apparently Christians do need some training in this area.
A Christian can tell someone what happened, or what convinced them to follow Christ. That might be helpful, [...]
