Get motivated and equipped to effectively share your faith in today’s world

That’s Good News is a practical guide to evangelism for the everyday Christian – no having all the answers, special training, or seminary degree required.

Through the parables of Jesus, humorous personal anecdotes, inspiring stories, and practical tips, it will motivate and equip you to share your faith and recognize that God isn’t asking you to be perfect – He’s just asking you to show up.

As a Christian, you know it’s important to share your faith, but you don’t know where to start. If you’re being honest, it’s a little scary, you’re not sure what to say, and you don’t know what it’s really supposed to look like (if you’re picturing a street preacher holding a huge sign, we’ve been there, done that, and promise there’s another way).

So, it gets put off for another day or left to the “radical few” – yep, probably the guys with the signs. It’s no wonder our culture is so confused and our churches are in decline.

But what if sharing your faith could be as simple as making cookies for your new neighbors or sharing a sermon on social media or inviting someone to church?

That’s Good News: How to Overcome Your Fear and Evangelize is a practical guide to evangelism for the everyday Christian who wants to join God in His work of inviting people to know Him. Through commentary on the parables of Jesus, humorous personal anecdotes from an evangelist who’s seen it all, inspiring stories, and practical tips for sharing your faith in a modern context, you will feel motivated and equipped to share your faith and recognize that God isn’t asking you to be perfect – He’s just asking you to show up.


You’ll walk away with:

  • Fresh energy for evangelism
  • A biblical case for why you should care about evangelism…and why all Christians should share their faith
  • Hope that the Gospel really is good news for our time — the way to a life of peace, power, purpose, and passion
  • New ways to frame the Gospel that anchor it in a spirit of abundant life, not just a transactional “get out of hell free” message
  • Less fear and more confidence sharing your faith

That’s Good News will connect you back to the biblical reason why evangelism matters and why it’s for everyone: because God is a God of growth and expansion, and He works with even the smallest seeds of faith.
