Conference: Personal Evangelism for Ordinary People March 22, 2014

PersonalEvangelismForOrdinaryPeopleImagine:

  • You confidently answer a question about why you follow Jesus.
  • Your friend asks you how you became a Christian and you give a clear story.
  • You share the gospel story without being tongue-tied.

Just this week, I met a church member who felt that evangelism was not doable because he felt he had

  • no talent,
  • no skill,
  • nor verbally eloquent like his pastor.

My friend lacked any confidence that he could witness to anyone.

Maybe you feel the same way.  You find personal evangelism intimidating.  You would rather clean a pig sty instead of talking about Jesus to your friends.

I was.

Learn how Personal Evangelism can be Natural

Speaking at Your Evangelism EventThe Personal Evangelism for Ordinary People seminar will help you overcome those natural fears and find fresh freedom in sharing your faith.

As you go through the seminar with Chris Walker, you’ll

  • Learn to recognize God given moments to talk about your faith
  • Discover evangelism can be as normal and natural as breathing.
  • Find and develop the four core evangelism skills you need, even if you don’t know your Bible.

Discover a compassion for the lost and learn how to share your faith.

This seminar is designed to give you a clear understanding of personal evangelism which results in a compassion that swallows fear and equips you to be effective in everyday life.

It’s designed to move you from clumsy to confident in just ONE day.

Coming to Chester Maryland, March 22, 2014

If you live in or near the Annapolis MD or central Eastern Shore area you don’t want to miss this FREE event. . . .

Chris will help you find the same confidence that has helps him talk about his faith in Christ to anyone who asks.  He used to be the obnoxious evangelist no one wants to be and has learned core skills to make evangelism.


The seminar dispelled the fears associated with evangelism. Both personal stories and Biblical truth provided a framework from which to proceed in making sharing my faith conversationally more a part of my lifestyle.

I would highly recommend this class to anyone with a heart for becoming more verbal in their witness. — Participant

“Fall 2010 has gone well. I believe the First Touch teams have a renewed sense of purpose and others are doing their part to apply the welcoming concepts they learned when you spoke here. I heard from many folks about how helpful and energizing it was to hear you speak.

Your talk helped us see the need to engage people, not just serve them. I think overall it was one of our most successful events ever, and was a real example of how the momentum is shifting in a positive way.” P Strachan, Midlothian VA.


Chris is a highly accessible speaker who brings a passion and energy to his workshops that is contagious.

Geoff McClean, Pastor

You might want to focus on ramping up your hospitality for the fall.

EvangelismCoach would like to come to your church this July 2013 (if your church is around 90 minutes from Annapolis Maryland).

You can host an evening workshop (90 minutes to 2 hours) at your church.

I’ll even help you with “done for you” registration and email promotional materials.

You are invited to open your workshop up to other churches in your region.

Who can host a workshop?

Due to family reasons, I will be based on Kent Island, Maryland for the month of July and would like to offer your church an opportunity for a workshop.

Your church must be within a 90 minute drive from Annapolis, Maryland.

Workshops can be given in English or Spanish.

If you lead a Spanish language congregation, I’d really love to speak with you.

What Topics Could be covered?

July is a great time to consider the following topics:

  • Church Greeter Training to make sure your greeters don’t drive your visitors away.
  • Prepare your Hospitality for to help get that second visit
  • Review your visitor Assimilation processes
  • Equip your members to talk about their faith while serving in community outreaches.
  • Personal evangelism training to take fear out of faith conversations.

You can help set the agenda as we plan our workshop for you, but the above list gives you an idea.

I will provide a resource table where people can purchase additional materials.

Available Dates:

You can choose workshop on a weekday evening

  • July 1-5 (I know it’s 4th of July week, so early might work)
  • July 15-19
  • July 29-31

I’m doing some travelling already the other weeks, plus have Sunday engagements the whole month.

It is my hope to schedule 3-4 workshops during this time in MD.

What do others say about having a workshop?

Inspirational, re-awakening.

I enjoyed the class! So much to learn so little time! Thanks so much for sharing!

In only a few hours you managed to describe a powerful, loving approach to personal evangelism. It doesn’t need much tweaking!

Do not be afraid! Evangelism is not scary – or need not be. It can be a friendly conversation.

“Attend one. ” You will no longer fear, ridicule or avoid evangelism.

You will lose your misconceptions about evangelism.

An inspiring motivational speaker with a message for all.

Questions?

Conference: Beyond Church Invitations 2 February, Pittsburgh PA

One question that comes up in my evangelism coaching practice and conferences is

How do I get better at personal evangelism?

This is usually fueled by

  • “I don’t want to be the weirdo on the street corner”
  • “I don’t want to ruin my friendship with people”
  • “I don’t know where to start.”

In this 90 minute teleseminar hosted at Mt. Pisgah Presbyterian Church you will learn:

  • How church invitations are part of evangelism
  • How to discover and share your own journey to faith
  • What you can say about the gospel message.
  • How to personally lead someone to faith in Christ.

Each of these four sections will be developed, with suggested take away growth step:

“What can I do in the next 90 days to move to the next stage”
