Admit it, whether you are young or old Facebook is probably a (sometimes large) part of your life. With hundreds of millions of people on the social network, shouldn't Christians use it as an evangelism tool? Charisma enlisted some of our Facebook friends to help us compile this list of the top 10 ways people use Facebook for evangelism. You can join the fun and become a fan of Charisma's Facebook page by going to

  • 1) Share your testimony.
    Tell people what having a relationship with God means to you. Using too much "Christianese" turns people off. Keep it simple. -Dan Rosselli
  • 2) Be positive. 
    Try to make sure your status updates are positive. Post things or people that you're thankful for. Or even name some of the ways that you've been blessed recently. "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it. Positivity, like negativity, is contagious." -Stacey Steinkopf Lillich
  • 3) Let the Word talk.
    A good idea is to post encouraging Scripture verses. "I had a friend whom I had not seen in years and who is not a practicing Christian, message me [to say] that the Scriptures I post really spoke to her. She [is now] trying out a new church! Hallelujah!" -Tonya Sullivan Hanselman
  • 4) Get out of your friend walls. 
    Go out of your way to find old classmates or colleagues and friend them. Then you can start building relationships and share the love of Christ. -Felicia Mann
  • 5) Make it personal. 
    Develop a rapport with someone, show them you care for them and then you can lead them to Christ. -Jeanette Rose Jacono
  • 6) Give thanks.
    Try daily to show your thankfulness to the Lord. Post His Word to give hope, peace and encouragement to your friends on Facebook. -Carol Taft-Adamczyk
  • 7) Watch your posts. 
    Pray for people on Facebook, share your testimony and even post devotionals. -Clyde Lane
  • 8) Show that you care.
    Don't post overtly religious snippets. Posters seem to forget that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. Start using FB to convince people that they matter. -Larry Walker
  • 9) Offer prayers for healing.
    Pray for anyone who posts a need or a sickness. "I pray with them right there through Facebook. I type the prayer out as if I were laying hands on them." -Tonya Sullivan Hanselman
  • 10) Keep it real.
    Last but not least, humble yourself and be honest. Don't try to be someone you aren't. Always show a Christ-like image as you live, learn, laugh and post. -Laura L. Townsend Lesko
