If your church offers classes in how to witness, by all means that those classes and practice what is shared with you.
But if you have no such classes readily available, I suggest you read, re-read, and keep re-reading Mark Cahill's excellent book in which he describes the kinds of conversations he has with non-believers to help then learn about salvation. From these conversations, you'll quickly realize that you don't have to know as much as your pastor does to be an effective witness. That will give you confidence to try.
I was pleased to see how Mr. Cahill recommends that you break the ice from having a casual conversation to discussing what happens after we die for all eternity. Anyone could feel confident using this approach for the first time.
I recommend that you keep notes about your conversations so you can study what your experiences have been. We all have different styles of speaking with others, and such notes can help you identify what works best for you.
The book is also very helpful in citing tracts to use, legal resources to get answers to questions, and addressing common questions that many non-believers will raise.
But most of all, the book will encourage you to witness by making you realize that there's benefit . . . no matter how the first conversation turns out.
If you have a sense of humor (as Mr. Cahill obviously does), I'm sure you'll soon be finding unique ways to share God's word. I was chuckling for several pages as I read about how he inserts Bible tracts into six-packs and cases of beer in the store.
May God bless you, your family, your witnessing, and all you do!
If you have read Ray Comforts excellent book on Evangelism The Way of the Master, then you need to read this one next. It's like The Way of the Master on steroids. Or put another way, it's like The Way of the Master with legs on. I'm sure Ray might not like that, but this was the book that gave me the fuel in evangelism. The Way of the Master was like the vehicle.
It contains one encouraging, challenging story after the next. And before you are half way through I almost guarantee that you will be looking for the next unbeliever to start talking to.
I personally have bought hundreds of copies of this book and Mark's other book to give away to Christian and non-Christian alike. I recommend that you do the same. You can order them in bulk from Mark's website, though single copies are cheaper here at Amazon.
On a side note, each chapter opens up with a quote from Charles Spurgeon, the so-called prince of preachers (though I believe that title belongs to Jesus!)
