ITCZ 101 - Your Elevator Pitch

Question: What is your elevator pitch for the Gospel?


Answer: "What's an elevator pitch?" :-/


Ok, let's start there! An elevator pitch (EP) is a quick overview of a topic that expresses a thought or idea in a quick and concise manner. The pitch only takes about 20-30 seconds. So even the tightest window of opportunity to deliver the Gospel becomes easy to do.

If someone asks about our Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.

The EP does require a little planning and practice. However, just like doing mental reps to galvanize your heart, the EP becomes a faith boost because the preparation builds confidence.

Mind Tools has an excellent piece on Crafting an Elevator Pitch. This should give you a pretty thorough introduction. Thank you, Mind Tools!

Review, ITCZ 101 - Deliver The Gospel to nail down exactly what the Gospel is. Then craft your pitch. Practice it and get it down to approximately 30 seconds and you have yourself a powerful witnessing tool.

Preparation Meets Opportunity

When an opportunity presents itself you will be able to "quick draw" the Gospel in moments you previously would miss. In most cases, you won't even need to seek out opportunities. They will present themselves and you'll be ready.

When you take even the tiniest steps to prepare yourself in the Lord, He opens up doors for you to exercise your faith.

And then he told them, "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone." - Mark 16:15 NLT
Sing to the LORD; praise his name. Each day proclaim the good news that he saves. Publish his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things he does. - Psalm 96:2-3 NLT

Take Action!

What is your Gospel elevator pitch?

Get a toasty hot cup of coffee and your favorite treat and sit down and review possible elevator pitches. Really get it nailed down.
Practice it! 
I Corinthians 15:3-4 can be shared in just seconds. Add on a quick, "If you believe in Jesus you will be saved. Do you believe?" and you are a powerful soul winner! :-) 
I bet you'll have even better ideas than that, once you dig in.
