Why is your story one of the most powerful ways to connect with other people?

And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” 20 And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled. – Mark 5:19-20

Let’s share our faith in a personal way with the people we love. God has given us all of the resources needed to spread the good news to a world that is hurting, curious, and searching for real hope and peace. Jesus is the remedy. We will tell our stories and share the videos on social media as we have the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of people across the Sound, the U.S., and the world.

The Details

Make a 60-90 second video on your phone and share your story with Jesus as the hero. Post the video on your Facebook and Instagram. Pray for the people who will watch it and trust God with the results. It really is simple enough that we can do this with the Spirit’s help. Be authentic, keep the phone at eye level, and make sure you have good lighting. Then post your story with the #JesusChangedMyLife hashtag and your church’s handle to connect viewers to a local church (i.e. #JesusChangedMyLife @graceinauburn) where they will be invited to an join an online gathering, hear the gospel preached, learn how to respond with faith, and find how to get connected with a local church.

Your Story

The easiest way to communicate your story is to have a couple of sentences for each these four elements:
1. Growing Up…
2. My Life Was…
3. Then I Heard…
4. Now…
If that outline is helpful, please use it. If you prefer to share in a different way that’s ok, but please make sure you communicate that Jesus is the One who is the hero of your story.
