When it comes to evangelism, many Christians feel that someone else may be better at sharing the gospel. Sometimes fear of not knowing an answer stop believers from sharing what they believe. Ed Stetzer sits down with Pastor and Mission Director of Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches Andy Paterson to talk about how the whole church can be involved in evangelism and living out the Great Commission.

Before taking up this role, Andy spent 24 years pastoring Kensington Baptist Church; a large inner-city church in an ethnically diverse area of Bristol, England. While at Kensington, Andy was involved in various church plants, cross-cultural work and local community projects. Andy spends half his time working for FIEC and the other half working for Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh, Scotland. Andy is author of the book, "Ready? Evangelism for Everyone".
