Fear. Lack of knowledge. Busyness. These are some of the top reasons given when Christians are asked why they don’t share their faith. How do we address these issues within the church? Today’s guest has years of experience teaching seminary students, and shares how he prepares them for a life of confidence in sharing the gospel.
Tim Beougher (pronounced Boo – ker) has served as the Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism and Associate Dean of the Billy Graham School at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Louisville, Kentucky since 1996. Tim is the author of numerous materials on evangelism, discipleship and spiritual awakening, including Invitation to Evangelism: Sharing the Gospel with Conviction and Compassion and Overcoming Walls to Witnessing. In addition to his seminary responsibilities, he currently serves as Pastor of the West Broadway Baptist Church in Louisville. He is married to Sharon and they are the proud parents of five children and the extra proud grandparents of eleven grandchildren. The Beougher “family” also includes a Golden Retriever named Crockett.
