3 - How to Share the Gospel

Lead with the Gospel and Work Your Story into It


As we continue to prepare for our short term mission trip, Lance Shumake, President of iGo Global Missions, will lay the groundwork for sharing the gospel. Too often, Christians are paralyzed by their perceived inability to share the gospel, and many believers that go out on a mission trip need some instruction to help them overcome this fear. Listen closely to Lance as he shares a great strategy for accurately sharing the gospel.



Lance taught that we must cover four parts of God's story when we share the gospel.
  • God created everything, and His creation is accountable to Him
  • We rebelled against His accountability over us
  • The only solution is that Jesus took our place on the cross
  • We are included in God's rescue when we believe in Christ alone
As Lance said, the right way to share is to first get God's story right and then work your own story into it, and not the other way around. Lance's model of the four points of the gospel are listed in question boxes below. In each space, write how you will weave your story into that point when you share the gospel message.

After you have completed this portion of the training, practice how you would share this with another member of your team. Ask each other questions that a non-believer might typically present. (i.e. "Wait, you just said 'by grace through faith.' I have no idea what that means. Can you explain that?")

The more times that you share God's story and your own, the more natural and comfortable you will become. As a next step, look for opportunities to share with neighbors, co-workers and others in your life, both as practice and to fulfill the Great Commission in your own backyard.
