Your Most Important Evangelism Tools

Do you find yourself searching for easier ways to evangelize?

Most people feel like evangelism is complex, or there is some trick to learning how to do it.

Let me let you in on a little secret…you already have the strongest evangelism tools you will ever need.

Growing your ministry efforts isn't about searching TikTok for a cool new hack or strategy but revisiting and learning more about who you are as a Christian and allowing the light of Christ to burn brightly from you.

It's essential, a prerequisite for evangelism.

"That according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love" Ephesians 3:16-17

Inviting Jesus to live in your heart is the most powerful and primary evangelism tool. Welcoming the Holy Spirit into your inner being and anchoring your thoughts and deeds in the love of Christ will calibrate your outlook on life and direct your interactions with the people you engage in conversation with.

Claiming your faith and living its tenants to the best of your ability is your most vital evangelism tool.

Listening is a frequently overlooked evangelism tool.

Listening to the Word of God presented in the Bible and hearing His WORD is a core element of faith.

"Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it." Luke 11:28 The critical part is to not just listen to God's instruction and take notes to store in the back of our brain but to LIVE and obey His divine commissions.

Listening to the Word of God could be preached from the pulpit or the whispers in the quiet of our hearts.

Psalm 46:10 tells us to "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted on the earth."

And while listening, understanding, and directing our actions based on the Word is vital, actively listening to those we minister to is also an essential tool of evangelism.

Three components define Active Listening:

Asking Questions

Be genuinely curious about what the other person is sharing. Ask questions to invite them to go deeper on a topic to share their heart and how a given circumstance made them feel. Asking open-ended questions will create a more rich conversation and grow connections with the other person in the conversation.

Listening To Understand

This component is important. Highlight, underline and put big arrows in the margins on this one. Too often, once another person speaks, we rush to formulate our reply…but true evangelism isn't a strategic debate. Engaging in conversation demands respect and listening to the other person to truly understand their point of view.

Reflect and Respond To The Reply

Keep the conversation going by restating what the other person said in your words and sharing what that makes you think or how it makes you feel. Remember, to be genuinely engaged when talking with another person; you ought to give them your undivided attention. So put away the phone, look them in the eye, and don't forget that your body language is part of your response too!

Listening to the Word of God employed in your ministry and actively listening to those in conversation are essential evangelism tools.

Story Telling

My mother always told me that God gave me two ears and one mouth for a reason…that listening was twice as important as speaking!

However, when the time comes to share the Love of Jesus, words are a necessary component…and perhaps just as important is how you present those words.

For example, simply reciting bullet points about truth rarely induces actions (let alone conversion), but sharing stories about how Jesus has personally impacted you and your life is an excellent way to evangelize.

Think about it, even Jesus frequently used stories when He wanted to connect with people and teach them an important concept. We call these stories parables, and they illustrate key biblical truths in a way that is easy to remember and, more importantly, an easy way to implement those truths into our lives.

When you are sharing stories about the life of Christ, we find having an Evangecube to be an excellent resource for storytelling. But, more importantly, it can be given to the person as a reminder about the story of Jesus so that they can embark on their personal prayer journey to invite Christ into their heart and listen to the wisdom He shares.

Also, Evangelism Tracts can be a great way to supplement conversations and provide a resource to those curious about the faith.


The best Evangelism Resources indeed stem from your personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Be solid in your faith, listen to God, and genuinely engage in conversation with those you minister to. And finally, when it comes time to share, remember to use stories to help make the magnitude of God's love easier to share and apply in life.

There is no stopping the evangelism of a person that burns with the light of the Holy Spirit.

"Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and. glorify your Father which is in heaven" Matthew 5:16
