Witnessing used to involve laying out the truth and guiding a person to understand and accept it. But the awareness of basic Christian principles has changed and so have the needs of pre-believers. With a passion for people, David Geisler will share an engaging, conversational approach to evangelism as he will address:
・What makes old models of witnessing ineffective in today's culture
・Why evangelism must start with relational pre-evangelism
・How to ask questions, listen attentively, and understand what someone believes
・Ways to identify the real barriers to belief in order to build a bridge to truth
・How to keep dialogue going with different personality types
This refreshing, practical conference is ideal for churches and individuals. Participants will discover how God uses their everyday encounters for great things when they switch from trying to witness effectively to effectively being a witness through communication and compassion.
WE ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDING THIS.

He is currently the President of Norm Geisler International Ministries (NGIM) which is based in Charlotte, N.C. In 1994, he was hired by the graduate branch of Campus Crusade for Christ to help develop a national pilot program at U.T. Austin to reach skeptical graduate students. What he discovered is that there is a real need for Christian ministries to understand how to do process evangelism, especially with those more skeptically minded. As a result, in 2000 he started Meekness and Truth™ Ministries which is now part of Norm Geisler International Ministries.
