Inviting Others to Jesus

‚ÄčEver have a conversation with someone who’s not a follower of Jesus and have things turn spiritual? What happened? Did you naturally share what you believe or did you seize up because you were nervous? Ashley and Heather Holleman have an approach to evangelism so refreshing and empowering. It might change the way you invite others to Jesus. Join us for Chris Fabry Live.
