Clarify and practice telling your faith story in ways that point to the Savior. Recognize multiple styles and contexts for sharing your faith and learn to apply them to everyday life.
MU-201 – Equipping to Share: Tough Questions
Learn how to identify, classify and get to the root of tough questions and objections to Christianity, and practice giving sensitive and relevant answers that point to the Savior, using messages of “Law” and “Gospel” as appropriate.
