REACHING FRIENDS WITH THE GOSPEL

John Anderson

Why share the Gospel with those around you? How might you even start doing that? What can I do to love and serve others around me? This workshop will help you understand why sharing the gospel matters and build steps for starting or continuing this in your everyday life.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP LEADER: John has served on staff with the Navigators for ten years at the University of Nebraska-Kearney and Wichita State University, where he currently serves as campus director. John was an atheist when he met the Navigators as a freshman at the University of Northern Iowa. Over the course of a year he came to believe in Jesus through many conversations with new friends in his dorm. Afterward, another Navigator student taught him how to grow deeply in his relationship with God and share his faith with others. Since then John has dedicated himself to recruiting, inspiring, and training college students to share Christ and invest deeply in others right where they are and to the ends of the earth.

 

In his free time John enjoys spending lots of time with his wife Courtney and three kids, Leo, Gideon, and Levi. He also enjoys walking, reading, sports, board games, and cooking with fire.
