THE FORT METHOD

How do you talk to someone you don’t know?  How do you bring the conversation around to talking about Jesus?  The FORT method is a good tool to use.  FORT stands for Family Occupation Religion and Testimony.  People generally like to talk about themselves.  The following are sample questions that can be used.  They are taken from the book Winsome Witnessing by Gary Gibbs page 19.

 

 

Family

How is your family doing?

Are you originally from this area?

In what area were you raised?

 

 

Occupation

What kind of work do you do?

How long have you worked there?

(If retired or unemployed)  What type of work did you do?

How do you like your job?

 

Religion

What is your religious background?

Have you been a (Methodist) all of your life?

Do you attend a church?

Which church do you attend?

Does your whole family attend together?

 

Testimony

My life before I accepted Christ was …

How I became a Christian …

My life since becoming a Christian …
