Using Mini-Movies To Start A Spiritual Conversation

I’ve seen firsthand a ministry strategy with incredible results that helps you, your friends, ministry or church springboard easily into a spiritual conversation with someone.   There are many different approaches to starting a spiritual conversation:  a survey, questionnaire, a tract, etc.  Many times these approaches don’t allow you to make a connection with an individual you’re meeting for the first time.  Intentional or random evangelism may not be comfortable for some.

People love stories and films.  These mediums connect to the heart of an individual and in a moments time they are drawn in emotionally.  Depending on the plot of the film they may connect with the characters and the story personally.  Using a short film or mini-movie enables you to have a more natural and relational approach to starting a spiritual conversation with somone.

There are several different ways that you can do this.  In the next few posts I will go into more details about what I have seen to work and where you can find short films and mini-movies that work well with this creative ministry strategy.
