1. Teach the clarity of the gospel message. In ten words, the gospel is: Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead (1 Cor. 15:3–5).
  2. Although the message never changes, the methods do. Teach students various methods God is using to reach each generation.
  3. Motivate by grace, not guilt. Come across as on their team, not on their back!
  4. Don’t just talk about evangelism; lead by example. Share some of your own illustrations and stories, or better yet, take people with you so they can see you in action and put it into practice themselves.
  5. Be transparent! Share what has worked and what hasn’t, your mistakes as well as your victories. Both are equally important.
  6. Base it on Scripture and keep the focus on Christ.
  7. Don’t promote competition or comparison of results.
  8. Emphasize that your students are responsible for contact, not conversion.
  9. Give your students one or more clear and simple ways they can tell someone how to have a relationship with God through Christ.
  10. Remember the various learning styles in your audience. These include learning by listening, seeing, and doing.
