When is the best time to share your faith with non-Christians? That is a great question! May we suggest a simple principle - when they are asking the right questions.

Christmas and Easter are two times when the world is open to discussion of a Savior sent into the world. Recently the blockbuster movie, "The Passion of the Christ", was a great rallying point for many as we took advantage of the openness to the Gospel at this time of the year. 

This year consider teaching your students how to pray for and to be equipped to share Jesus with their friends, here's a couple articles that can help you do this. 

If you have the manpower consider hosting one of the following outreaches?

We would like to encourage you and your friends to think through how you can take advantage of this natural window to share your faith and we want to help you answer the question: What’s So Good about Good Friday?

By using this 5 step process you can select an outreach strategy that suits your ministry at your school. Prayerfully read through the overview and see what God might have you do to show his love to students at your school.
