What’s Your Story?
Have You Shared It?

All of June and July, we have been looking at Snapshots of changed lives in scripture.  The truth is, if you are a follower of Jesus, you have a changed life as well.  The story of that change is your testimony.

For the rest of the month, we are excited to invite you to share your story in a uniquely different way.  We want to help you use the website as a way of sharing your unique story of God’s work in your life.  We will have a video booth set up and ready to record your video testimony for the next three weeks at FSBC.  If you would prefer to simply write your story we can help you with that as well.
Once your story is uploaded to the website, it will be assigned a story number which you can share with others so they can view/read your testimony online.  This is a unique tool you can use to share your story with anyone you are having a conversation with, be that conversation long or short.  We will have “story cards” printed with our church information, the 1million stories web address and a blank for you to fill in your story number. 

In order to help these recording sessions flow smoothly, here are a few things to consider:
  1. Start by writing down your story.  While you don’t want to read your story to the camera, writing down what you want to share first can help you to organize your thoughts before coming to record.
    Consider your “before/how/after.”  
    1. What was your life like before you met Jesus? How did you live? What characterized your life?
    2. How were you introduced to Jesus and what convinced you that you were a sinner in need of salvation? 
    3. How has Jesus changed your life? What characterizes your life now that you have asked Jesus to be your Lord?
  2. Make sure that the Gospel is clear.  Focus on the Savior more than your sin.  Our stories should make God the hero.  He is the one who saves.
  3. Keep it short and simple.  Especially for a video testimony, shoot for 3-4 minutes.  If you are having a conversation with someone where you have more time and they are interested in hearing more, by all means keep sharing, but for this situation, brevity is our friend.
  4. Practice telling your story.  Ask a friend or family member if you could share your story with them. Practice increases confidence.
  5. Come prepared to video on a Sunday morning, or sign up for a time to come video during the week.  We want to make it as simple as possible for you to share.

We are excited to see how God will use your stories to grow His kingdom!
