About this Session

Matt Miofsky is convinced that a great many people are curious about faith. Believers, however, are often shy to speak about thier faith. How do we talk about faith in ways that are not off-putting? How do we enter public conversation about faith in ways that build bridges rather than burn them? Miofsky seeks to help believers talk about faith with curious people. Miofsky has insight into how we re-capture the simple practice of testimony in ways that people who are curious can hear.
