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

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.

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?
