David Martin on Evangelism in the Waiting Room

Evangelizing is not about methodology as much as it is about intentionality because there is always an opportunity to share the Gospel with people, says David Martin, Director of Student Initiatives for "I Am Second," a ministry that posts a series of web videos featuring notable personalities and their testimonies about God.

Martin admits his excuse for not sharing the Gospel with individuals one-on-one used to be because he was an introvert and it was not his "wiring" to engage with strangers. However, he reached a point in his life where he realized he had a "gospel integrity gap" which prompted him to begin spreading God's message in an unconventional way.

"I started going to the sub-level 2 waiting room of Methodist Hospital, once a month, at 6:30 a.m., armed with a jug of Starbucks coffee in one hand and healthy dose of fear in the other," writes Martin, in a blog post for Emerging Evangelists. "I would nervously ask those waiting, as their loved ones underwent life-threatening surgeries, if they wanted coffee."
