Even though followers of Christ have the best news in the world to share with others, we often struggle with how best to say it. Perhaps we think that if we don't present it like Pastor Gregg or Rev. Billy Graham, we might as well not even try.

Odds are, God's not calling you to be a teacher or preacher like these men. Rather, He simply asks that you "always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you." (1 Peter 3:15)

Houston's First offers the following classes to equip believers to do just that.

Most of our evangelism classes are free to attend and open to members and guests from any of our campuses. Registration is required for Xee and the Share Your Faith Workshops, so be sure to sign up.
