    Evangelism - 20 Second Teachings of Jesus

    -Throughout my travels, I encounter thousands of people who want to share Jesus with their friends, but simply don't know a way to start.We love Jesus, but let's face it. A lot of us have forgotten how to simply share about Jesus while being relatable to people.

    A lot of our "evangelistic" methods are antiquated, awkward, and – arguably – ineffective.

    I created a really SIMPLE way to develop rhythms of sharing the message of Jesus.

    It's called "20 Second Teachings of Jesus."

    I tried it last week in real life with some friends at the University of Southern California.

    Here's how it went.

    Each day, we would take five minutes and brainstorm one of the major things Jesus taught.

    You know, like...

    "The kingdom of God is near. Change how you think and believe this good news!"

    Or...

    "God so loved the world that He gave His only beloved son.....

    Or...

    "Forgive..."

    We walked around, finding people who were just hanging out. We'd approach them and ask,

    "Hi, can I interrupt you a second? We're followers of Jesus. We're not selling anything or recruiting people to come to meetings. We're just walking around to meet people and share 20-second encouraging excerpts of major things Jesus taught.

    Can I share one with you?

    Pretty soon, we'd met with 40 students.

    Out of 40 students, only 4 (four) had grown up around church activities.

    85% of the people we met were willing to listen to a short teaching about Jesus.

    After we shared a 20-second teaching, we'd ask them,

    "Does this encourage you or have relevance for your life?"

    Often conversations would start. Sometimes we thanked them and moved on.

    Other people wanted to sit and talk...
