When you meet a Christian you want to get beyond the worldly with them. However, most Christians struggle to get into deeper discussions, especially with strangers.
Below are some Christian icebreaker questions. I have used all of them and all led to edifying conversations. They’re great to use with strangers and especially great when meeting Freshers.
I’d encourage you to probe for reasons and other answers the person considered. This’ll give you great insight into how the person really works.
If they find it hard give your answers, making sure you give thorough reasons as this will model for them how to do it.
So the list is:
How did you become a Christian?
What’s your favourite Christian song or hymn?
What ten books would you take to a desert island?
What are you studying in your quiet times?
What church background are you from?
If you could meet one character out of the Bible, other than Jesus, who would it be?
If you could meet one person from Church history, outside of the Biblical, who would it be?
If you were stranded on a desert island and you could take only ten books of the Bible to use to evangelise the savage tribes on that island what would be your ten?
What truth has challenged the way you live recently?
- What have you learnt about Christ that has amazed you recently?
And my all time favourite, a quote from my friend which I have never used but probably should have. Going up to a non-Christian he said:
“So, Bill, why aren’t you a Christian yet?”
