Outreach Toolbox: Everyday Ways to Grow in Sharing Christ

1 Peter challenges us to prepare our hearts, minds, and souls through the Word of God to be ready to share the good news of Jesus Christ with gentleness and respect. Outreach Toolbox equips us for everyday situations, giving us more confidence to share Christ effectively by using simple, conversational materials for skills we can practice together. Sharing Christ is a lifetime call and one we will always strive to grow in. Outreach Toolbox will provide you with a few more “tools” for your toolbox that you can start using in your everyday relationships with others.


Over four weeks, we will focus on practical evangelism skills so that we may be better prepared and ready to share Christ without feeling intimidated, awkward, or uncomfortable.
