PEP/Talk The Persuasive Evangelism Podcast

We often speak on PEP Talk about sharing our faith with “friends, colleagues and family”.  Speaking of family, how do we share our faith with our children? Is that even evangelism? Or is it something we just assume will happen? Today Andy speaks with a self-described “regular guy” who thinks Christian parents can be intentional and persuasive (without guilt or pressure!) in the way they share God’s truth with their kids.

New Covenant Chruch, Naperville

Persuasive Christian Parenting: a Q&A with Mike D’Virgilio

My wife and I used to attend New Covenant Chruch, Naperville, IL we moved to Florida in June, 2017. The pastor, a fellow Italian, was kind enough to promote the book: “Mike has written a terrific book on how to equip our children for cultural apologetics—how to think and engage ideas of the day from a Christian perspective.”

Speaking Engagements

Mike is available for book reviews, speaking, and media requests, or to answer any question related to Christianity, parenting, apologetics, or anything else for that matter.
