Sharing your faith with your colleagues doesn’t have to be complicated. Here’s how you can share the gospel on your next business trip.
Make a gospel connection.
The gentleman I had the gospel conversation with, I’ve known since 2012. I was on a business trip to Puerto Rico. He came to Puerto Rico to visit our company with his new company. We spent a lot of that day going back and forth on what our capabilities were. He was talking about one of his new opportunities, which would be a pharmacy. My mind wandered while he was talking, and I started to connect the ability to ship pharmaceuticals to a mission journey I took to Guatemala in 2018 through our church. I was able to relay the mission work I had done in Guatemala and go through the whole story.
Be ready to share more about your story.
The first thing he said to me when I talked about all of this was, “I didn’t know you went to church!”, which for me was a really convicting statement to hear, right? Because I’ve known him for about ten years! A lot of the conversation really turned into a Q & A. “So when did you go on this mission? You were in Guatemala… What was that like? So you are part of a church… What do you do at that church?”
Continue with others on their journey.
I took that time to answer those questions and use it as a platform for a full-on gospel conversation. We have continued to use that conversation as a springboard to talk more about God and about my faith. I hope that I am a positive influence on him and that the example that I am setting, just by being willing to discuss my faith, leads him to his own faith.
