Move To Assurance Releases New Video: (The Four Steps Of) How
To Share Your Testimony
Tualatin, OR Move To Assurance (MTA), a non-denominational
Christian evangelism and discipleship ministry has announced their
latest videoHow To Share Your Testimony. Produced
to help Christians learn how to use their testimony for sharing
the good news about Jesus Christ, this video is available on DVD
and on YouTube..
Our testimony is one of our most effective tools for sharing the
gospel, if we are properly prepared, and if we remember to include
the gospel in our testimony.
"When we share our testimony with the purpose of sharing about
Jesus Christ, we need to be sure Jesus Christ is in our testimony.
The focus should be on connecting people with Jesus." said
Steve Hudgik, Executive Director of MTA. "When we interviewed
people for this video nearly 90% of the testimonies we recorded
were focused on the person giving the testimony. Jesus and the gospel
were only a small part of the story, if they were there at all.
We hope this video will help change the focus to be on the gospel."
This new MTA video shows the four steps used in preparing to
sharing your testimony:
2) Write a long and short version of your testimony
3) Convert what your wrote into an outline
4) Memorize the outline and practice sharing your testimony
These four steps are covered in this fast-moving 25 minute video.
The video also goes into details such as tips to help you write
your testimony, and a description of the three parts of a Christian
1) The way I was before
2) What happened (how you became a Christian)
3) The way you are now
The video also covers topics such as when you should share your
testimony and the circumstances in which another way of sharing
the gospel might be more appropriate. It even covers what to do
if you forget part of your testimony.
As Christians we've assumed that everyone will know how to
share their testimony. Steve explains. But like everything
else we do, having some guidance and training is very useful. We've
made this the first in what will be a series of evangelism 'how-to'
videos, because this is were the greatest need was.
(The Four Steps Of) How To Share Your Testimony is freely available
online on the MTA web site at: http://tiny.cc/shareyour.
DVD copies, which include two bonus videos showing testimonies,
are available on the MTA web site for $5.00 (www.MoveToAssurance.org).
