CFTROU 0010: A Simple Way to Share the Gospel

Our simple gospel sharing tool is called the 3 Circles. It was created out of the need to find a way to share the gospel with unchurched and irreligious people. It is a simple, reproducible, visual, and interactive tool. The 3 Circles is a life conversation guide about God’s design, brokenness, and the gospel.
