Tips for Missional Conversations

June 25, 2007
  1. Pray that God will give you ideas while you’re in conversation with people.
  2. Learn to value silence and give people a chance to respond to your hint without your blathering all
    over it.
  3. Go cautiously and gently. Many people today don’t like to be pushed.
  4. If you don’t get very far with your hints, you can always be a bit more direct. But even then be gentle and friendly. And always leave the door open.
  5. Listen carefully and be ready to stop hinting and share the gospel when the door opens.
  6. If you share Christ with someone who doesn’t make a decision right away, try to get some contact information so you can talk again or at least send some material that will keep your listener asking questions and wanting more.
  7. If someone does accept Christ, find a way to continue discipling the new believer or connecting him or her with a local church.

    I like point #2. I’ve found that being a good listener opens the door to more conversation and receptivity later.
