Intentionally Pursuing Evangelism This Summer

It is summer and you may be dreaming of a break — hitting the beach, working on a tan, or watching a few extra movies. But summertime also provides natural opportunities to grow in evangelism. Here are a few ways to do this.

Connect With Old Friends

When I became a Christian in college, one of my first thoughts was about the people I was going to see when I returned home for the summer. If you go to school in a place different from where your family lives, then think about a few people to intentionally spend time with when you’re home. Find an appropriate time to tell them about what God has been doing in you this year.

Here is what I said to my high school friends over the summer: “Hey, I am home for two months and I’d love to talk to you about what God has been doing in my life and how he could be part of yours as well. No pressure; I am not going to bring this up every time we hang out. But if you want to talk deeper about the topic, I’m available. You wouldn’t be bothering me one bit.”

Some of my friends were curious and took me up on my offer.  Others couldn’t have cared less. None were offended.
