My most popular presentations are Sharing YOUR Faith Story speeches, seminars and workshops on evangelization which:

  • Explain why baptized Christians are meant to be evangelists
  • Demonstrate through examples how to know, prepare and deliver our faith story
  • Provide strategies and resources for evangelization through our personal witness
  • Guide you through workshop exercises to write your faith story.
  • Give ten tips for sharing a conversion, reversion or renewal story

My speeches and seminars answer the question: “How do I give my personal witness?”

As I tell my conversion and renewal stories, I demonstrate how to witness effectively and authentically. Workshop exercises get you started in preparing your faith story. Then I explain tips and cautions to help you focus your story and tell it succinctly. These tips also apply to stories of healings, miracles and answered prayers. I conclude with many ways to share your story in person, in print or online.

Here’s a Sharing Your Faith Story YouTube video on encouragement from “Sharing Your Faith Story, a three-part seminar for evangelization” DVD.
