Most Christians struggle with sharing their faith--leaders included. Slick training and scripted methods haven't helped much. Something feels missing. But what? In this special event presented by the Portland Evangelism Team we'll share inspiring conversation about the heart of gospel-sharing faith. Join us for this conversational time of stories and best practices, as we ask what it would mean to show and tell the gospel in practical, natural, and even easy ways.

You love Jesus, and want to share him with your family, friends, and neighbors. So why does talking about your faith feel so hard sometimes? In this inspiring, conversational event, we'll hear incredible stories of real Christians sharing their faith, and be moved to practical, natural, and even easy ways to connect the Good News to our community.
