Braden Olsen (R) transitioned a casual conversation to a gospel conversation at a Nashville restaurant.
“Has anyone ever shared the gospel with you?”
This simple question has been our most fruitful transition from an everyday conversation to a gospel conversation. We have found it works well with oikos (friends/family) & strangers. [I (Troy) learned it from the man, the myth, the legend: Carter Cox].
If they say “no” then we reply:
“I’d like to show you a simple way. It will only take 2 minutes”
If “yes” then reply:
“Has anyone ever shown you a simple way to share with others?”
The average person has 27 conversations a day. How are you transitioning from everyday conversations to gospel conversations? We would love to learn from you!

What is your faith background?
This has opened many a door for me, especially at work. It also tells you a lot about their past spiritual journey.
Also, asking permission to share the gospel in a simple 2 minute story has made sharing at work much easier. If they say no thanks, I move on.
Last, when talking about brokenness or mental health issues I introduce the mind, body and spirit approach to complete wellness. When I get to the Spirit aspect I ask about “faith background”.
Hope this is helpful.
