I remember walking around school, seeing the same people day after day, and feeling like I had this massive secret- I knew something that could save the people around me- but how was I supposed to share it?!

Sometimes, being a Christian can feel like a massive burden, like you have to save the people around you, but you just don’t know how to start that conversation. Well, you can’t make anybody believe, but you do have a powerful tool for sharing the Gospel. Your Story.

“They triumphed over him [The devil] by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;” Revelation 12:11
People can argue ‘til the cows come home about how old the world is, whether the Bible is legit, and whether Jesus was actually resurrected or the disciples were on hallucinogenic drugs. But there’s one thing they can never contest- your personal experience of Jesus. And that is powerful.

‘Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.’ 1 Peter 3:15
Your classmates need to hear the reason for the Hope you have- the Life-Saving, Life-Giving Gospel. And it’s easier than you think to share it!

You just have to invite them to Ask. Sam and his Christian Union posted pictures of themselves all over school, with the text “We’re all Christians, Ask us Why”. Within a week, Sam alone had counted that around 100 people had asked him about his faith!
March 10th we’re launching #ASKMEWHY day- a day where young people all across the country will take a stand, and challenge their schools to ask them about the reason for their Hope.

Want to be involved? Join other young people across the country by wearing a “I’m a Christian, Ask me why” Badge on Monday March 10th, or spread the word around school with a poster like Sam.

1. Join the event on Facebook
2. Buy the badge
3. Print the Poster

We’ve made the posters, printed the badges- connect with us on Facebook and we’ll even help you figure out what to say. Even better, if you buy badges for the whole CU, we’ll throw a professionally printed poster in for free!

You can make Hope available to your school.
