Editors’ note: 

Hear Becky Pippert on “A Fresh Approach to Holistic Evangelism for the 21st Century” at our 2019 National Conference, April 1 to 3 in Indianapolis. Browse the complete list of 74 speakers and 58 talks. We hope you will join us.

Becky Pippert has traveled all over the world to talk about evangelism. She’s been surprised to find that, in every part of the world, the misconceptions people have about evangelism are always the same. Pippert, Gloria Furman, and Shar Walker (contributors to the new book Joyfully Spreading the Word) sat down to discuss misconceptions—and the truth—about evangelism.

Most commonly, people say they can’t evangelize because they feel inadequate. They think they don’t know enough or won’t be able to answer hard questions. Pippert dispels fears of inadequacy by pointing out that none of us is adequate to bring someone else to faith: “Recognizing our inadequacy is the first step to really being effective in witness.”

Some think that only a select few or only those “in ministry” have the gift of evangelism. But all of us are called to share the good news of salvation. Furman remarks, “A lot of our misconceptions could be addressed just by looking at what the Bible says about what evangelism actually is, and by looking at our Savior to see how he did it.”
