S01 Episode 02: Evangelism Misconception #2

David Souther (EvanTell President) and Larry Moyer (EvanTell Founder and CEO) take a look at a second common evangelism misconception: "Doing evangelism is like going to the dentist for a root canal."

In this 20-minute episode, David and Larry discuss:

  • How negative past experiences often keep us from evangelizing in the present
  • Evangelism is a blessing not a burden
  • The first thing Christ ever taught his disciples was evangelism (cf. Matt. 4:19)
  • What it looks like to follow Christ in evangelism
  • Practical steps for reaching people
