The people in your group spend hours every day in the most high-impact mission field in the world: their workplaces. A place where they are regularly in touch with people facing significant life questions. But to have an impact, they need a perspective that's different from anything they've ever heard or read about evangelism. Real evangelism is a process. It's organic - more like farming than selling.

- Create curiosity about faith and stimulate spiritual interest

- Cultivate common ground with non-Christians
- Tell their personal faith stories invitingly
- Practice "less is more" to share their faith in a nonthreatening way
- and more
