This one tip can fast-track your soul winning training and give you the confidence to win souls to Christ. It makes soul winning so much easier!
As a new soul winner, I was overwhelmed with the thought of leading someone through the Gospel plan. There was so much information to process!
How was I going to remember all the verses of the Gospel plan while learning meet people, answer questions, overcome interruptions, and confront objections?
Thankfully, my mentor taught us this simple tip that made soul winning so much easier for a beginner!
Confidence in soul winning comes from prayer, memorization of the Truth, practice of the techniques, and preparation of your tools. Drawing a map in your New Testament helps you work through fearful jitters and unforeseen interruptions.
The concept is simple but effective. Draw a map through your New Testament by highlighting or underlining a verse then write the next verse you will go to next in the margin.
We recommend highlighting the verses with a yellow or orange gel (dry) highlighter. A gel highlighter won’t bleed through thin Bible pages. Click here to see the gel highlighter I use.
I use the Romans Road Gospel plan with the addition of 1 John 5:13 to start. Usually, I finish with Titus 1:12, John 1:12-13, and John 3:36 for assurance after they trust Christ. I use Matthew 10:32 when asking them for a commitment to be my guest at church.

Special thanks for God for making all this possible and Granite State Baptist Church and Pastor Peter Chamberland for hosting the meeting.
I’ll give you an update after the conference.
Pray that God will move MIGHTILY!
Preparation is key to any successful endeavor. Soul winning is no different. Here are some practical items to consider when preparing to win souls.
Luke 10:1–2, 17 “After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”
In Luke 10:1-16, our Lord gathered his disciples to give them instructions as they went out from city to city in His name. He prepared them for what they would encounter in ministry and gave them instructions on how to respond to various situations.
Every Christian is commanded to spread the Gospel. What God commands, He empowers. You can be a confident and productive soul winner. These free resouces will help you.
Why is it so difficult to share our faith? We are glad we are saved. We want others to get saved. The Gospel is not difficult to explain, so what is the problem?
While there are many possible answers to this vital question, I do know this much… It is imperative to have a proven framework of how to win a soul in which you have complete confidence.
Hopefully, you were bewildered by the title of this article. Why would this question be asked in the publication of a ministry that helps start churches? Good question. Let me explain.
I have been surprised by the number of Christians (including some Pastors) who aren’t convinced that we need more churches. Here are a few examples.
Sometimes when we promote a town or an area that needs a church, I will see a message that says something like this, “I searched for churches in that town in google maps, and I found a lot of them. Does that area really need ANOTHER church?” Sometimes they will even include a screenshot in case I don’t believe them. Very helpful.
From time to time a pastor will bristle at the idea of another church in a city with more people than they can reach in a lifetime or in a county with more area than they will ever cover. One pastor told a would-be church planter, “This town already has a church. You can go somewhere else.” That pastor left and the church is no longer in existence. The town is still on our list. Hopefully, it will get a good church one day.
Yes, we really do need more churches. Lots more of them in fact. Hundreds more. I believe God can use us to do it. Do you?
