Jonathan's compelling new evangelism training, now on DVD, is uniquely relevant
for youth workers who want to help equip their teenagers toward evangelism that
is neither too pushy… or too silent. Real Conversations
helps teenagers think
about their faith, their approach, and provides real examples of how to share their
faith story. I'm thrilled for this new resource to be out and available to assist
leaders like myself.
Doug Fields, Author, Speaker
"If you are looking for a way to ease your students into the often awkward (but
always awesome!) process of peer-to-peer evangelism then I challenge you to get
for your teenagers. McKee is always funny, practical and
thought provoking when it comes to anything he teaches...and he doesn’t disappoint
in this curriculum! I especially enjoyed the demonstration in episode four showing
a conversation between two girls at school and how the Christian girl skillfully,
naturally and humbly turned the conversation with her friend toward spiritual things."
Greg Stier, President Dare 2 Share Ministries
"I tend to be skeptical of evangelism training programs, so I opened my copy of
with a fair amount of trepidation. Three words: "I LOVED
IT." I quickly discovered that Jonathan has created a fantastic tool to help build
confidence in teenagers to share their faith in an authentic, conversational, manner.
I can't wait to use it in our ministry!"
Kurt Johnston, Pastor to Students, Saddleback Church
I really like this resource… starting with the title! It's nowhere close to being
a freaky "How to Shove Jesus down your Friends' Throats"… but it's a real practical
tool that can absolutely help students think about Real Conversations
. And honestly,
I think students are more ready for real conversations than we might realize sometimes.
This DVD can help you, help them! What if it's true that our students are actually
capable of having more real conversations about their faith… and about Jesus? This
resource can help you find out.
Scott Rubin, Director of Junior High Ministry, Willow Creek
"Well done! I thought the book and the video were simple to follow and very practical.
McKee is suggesting a balanced approach to having a real conversation with students,
and the 'six types of kids' section was very helpful to help young people get to
know their audience. The entire training was very helpful with real life scenarios
and some very memorable funny moments. I would highly recommend both the book and
the DVD to anyone who desires to train their students in how to reach their friends
and other students on their campuses without sounding weird."

"We all want to equip our students to share their faith with their friends. But,
if you're like me, you struggle to find strategies that are approachable, practical,
and age-appropriate. Real Conversations
is just that resource. It's easy-to-use,
fun to watch, and is full of solid, Biblical content."
Partner, The Youth Cartel
"Talking about Christ with your friends can be intimidating, whether you're a teenager
or an adult. This curriculum helps change that for both the teenagers and adult
leaders in your ministry. You'll understand better how to bring God up in everyday,
normal conversations in non-threatening and natural ways. You'll be motivated to
talk about your faith despite the challenges that come along with doing so, and
you'll fulfill the Great Commission in the most effective way possible: building
relationships and having real conversations
