Sharing the gospel is scary and is awkward. But take a couple deep breaths, don’t freak out, and check out this conversation between Perry and Aaron Bolduc about how to lean into the awkward and the awesome of sharing Jesus.
Aaron Bolduc, serves with Ambassadors for Christ International. He’s really gifted at sharing the good news and he’s also really gifted at coaching us up to share Christ. First, what do you do if you’re not gifted at sharing your faith? Then, how in the world do get into conversations about Jesus?—Ask, admire, and admit.
Next, a non-negotiable in winsomely sharing Christ: Humility! Then, a challenge, and this isn’tmeant to guilt you, but here goes—are you ashamed of the gospel? (There’s grace here cause God still loves you!) Next, how do you share Jesus with someone who’s strongly opposed to him??
Then, what do you say to somebody who thinks they know Jesus, but they probably don’t? Next, Lucy, a Perry and Shawna Mornings listener is getting ready for a cross-country trip to share the gospel and wonders how she can make the most of her missionary journey!
And last, how to prepare yourself to share the hope you have in Jesus! If you want coaching to share your faith, Aaron would love to have coffee with you or come to your church. Text 800.968.8930 and we’ll connect you with him!
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
