Sharing Jesus at Christmas: 5 Easy Ideas for Holiday Evangelism

sharing Jesus at Christmas

Yes, Christians should be sharing Jesus at Christmas. But how exactly do we and our teens do that? If you need practical pointers, read the easy, results-oriented holiday evangelism tips below!

Christmas is one of the holidays where engaging people in a Gospel conversation can be easier and more natural. It is a time of sharing laughter, food and, of course, gifts.

And we have no better gift to share than the good news of Jesus. He truly is the reason for the season!

5 Ideas for Sharing Jesus at Christmas

1. Invite another family to Christmas Eve services. Then use it as a Gospel conversation starter.

If there’s ever a time people are pre-conditioned to go to church, it’s on Christmas Eve. The Christmas story becomes an excellent entry point to the Gospel message. Maybe have visitors over for some eggnog afterward. Ask non-threatening questions such as “So why do you think the story of Jesus’ birth is so important to so many churches?” or “What was the most meaningful part of the service to you?” Both questions can become a jumping-off point for sharing Jesus at Christmas.

2. Write a personal letter explaining the Gospel in the context of Christmas.

Nothing is more powerful than a handwritten, heartfelt letter. A letter is both personal and permanent (because typically people don’t throw them away!). The entire book of John is a handwritten letter, primarily written to people who had not yet believed in Jesus. That’s why the Apostle wrote, “These things were written that you might believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that by believing you may have life through his name” (John 20:31).

At some point, you can make the salvation segue. For example: “During this Christmas season, I cannot help but think of you and how much you mean to me. That’s why I wanted to share something that means the most to me…my relationship with Jesus.”

3. Send someone a link to a short video that clearly shares the Gospel.

Many videos are great for sharing Jesus at Christmas. Here are a few:

  • Life in Six Words: This spoken-word piece from Propaganda is clear, compelling and, well, very cool. It’s truly a viral video that millions of believers and nonbelievers alike have seen. Check it out here.
