How can I share my faith without making others uncomfortable, or coming across as offensive? 

If you are looking to gain a deeper understanding of how to share the gospel in a way that will make others actually want to continue the conversation, Conversational Evangelism is the key!

This self-paced workshop is based on the book Conversational Evangelism, by Dr. Norman Geisler and Dr. David Geisler.

This practical training allows you to look at evangelism as a process for sharing your hope in Christ (1 Pet. 3:15), based on the imperative in Matthew 13:23 to cultivate "good soil." You will learn how to use "lite apologetics," based on Dr. Norman Geisler's classical apologetic model, to deepen each conversation with nonbelievers.  

By sharing the truth in ways that are both personally and culturally sensitive, you will be able to help them uncover the truth for themselves. 

Specifically crafted for witnessing to a post-modern generation, this self-paced workshop offers tools for perceiving the real barriers behind nonbeliever's objections to the gospel. You will learn how to come alongside nonbeliever to co-travel with them on their spiritual journey. 

Your heart for the lost will grow as you learn how to build a bridge together from the point of their interest to the Cross.

Dr. David Geisler

Building on what his father taught him, David has developed new paradigms of integrating and applying apologetics with evangelism. Together with his late father, Dr. Norman Geisler, David co-authored the book “Conversational Evangelism,” which has since been translated into six languages. David is currently pioneering a 4 R’s model (Rooted, Rested, Ready, Reaching) that integrates apologetics, evangelism, and discipleship. David speaks internationally, offering seminars, training and certificate programs in both his father’s 12 Points and his Conversational Evangelism models. He encourages Christians to reframe apologetics from a 1 Peter 3:15 model, “be ready to give a defense”, to a Matthew 13:23 model, “cultivating good soil.” Using discipleship principles, David motivates the body of Christ to use apologetic tools in sharing the faith in culturally, personally, and spiritually sensitive ways.  Serving as a missionary in Asia from 2004-2011, David trained over 300 bible and seminary students in practical apologetics, many who are now pastors and missionaries all over Asia. He holds a Master in Biblical Studies and a Master in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministries in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. He helped develop a national pilot program for skeptical students with Campus Crusade for Christ (now called CRU) from 1994-1999. He teaches in various seminaries around the globe and as an adjunct professor at both of the seminaries his father founded: Southern Evangelical Seminary and Veritas International University. He also serves on the leadership panel for Intentional Discipleship Making Conferences (IDMC), founded by Rev. Edmund Chan.
