I look for opportunities to ask what they believe. I listen. I take a point that they have made and say something like..."hey, that's interesting. Did you know the Bible talks about that? Here's what it says...."
Sometimes it's just in the course of a conversation. I mention a verse in a similar way.
No matter the verse, I can usually find a way to bring in the plan of salvation.

Start with the law (10 Commandments) to show what sin is. Then present the Gospel (cross) to show the cure for sin. Start: "Are you a good person?", "Have you ever lied, stolen, etc.?", "Do you think you would be inocent or guilty?", "Heaven or Hell?", "Jesus died and took your punishment so you could go to Heaven!", "Repent, and trust in Jesus as your Lord!". For more info., you can get it at Way of the Master.

Pray as always in the morning and opportunities will present themselves as the holy spirit urges and helps you.

After sharing the Gospel, do you exchange contact information so you can disciple them or answer questions later on?

My method that works is: I love them first and foremost. I am a friend to them. I wait for the Holy Spirit to tell me what to say to them.
I have a hard-hearted Jewish neighbor who is not religious at all. The Lord told me to love her. It's 2 years later and I asked the Lord, "what now?" I've been doing what you told me to. Continue to love her is what I'm getting in the spirit.
Then one day, I will be close enough friends with her to say, "why don't you believe Jesus is the Messiah." Then I'll take her through scriptures to prove He is. I will give her the entire gospel when the Holy Spirit releases me to, but for now, I'm to love her and do things for her like let her taste my cooking, etc.,

I tell them all the things God has delivered me out of.
He saved my soul from a burning hell. He has set my feet on dry land. He lights my path so that I don't fall into the traps of the enemy. He guides me into all truth.
I would not have what I have without God.
Knowledge, children, home, car, money, my health, getting up this morning. I would not have anything if I didn't have God in my life, through his precious son Jesus. Our savior!

First off is to pray. Direction from God will lead you those are in need. Scripture says to compell them to come in. To me compell is to persuade-urging to come. There's a time to speak & Not to speak,your life is a witness. If your not living a True Godly acceptable life then your witness is not going to be very affective.

Well, Ill share the gospel, with anyone at all, anytime, anyplace, for as long as they can. And after I have explained the things, I see in the gospel to them fully. I say, God keep you, and go on my way! And as I go, I go over all the things this person has just taught me.
May God be able to teach you too!
God keep you

"Sharing the Gospel" isn't about techniques or programs, it's about telling others what God has done for you and can do for them. We don't need to be "professionals" at sharing our faith, just tell what our experience has been and how it has made a difference in our lives.

I get to know people, find out what makes them tick, look for the needs in their lives and hearts and pray for the Lord to open a door that only He can fit in.

I wait while listening in my life for someone who is verbally crying out their sins, then try and remember to tell the they can turn to Jesus for help.
If they don't respond to that, then I let it go. I planted my seed.
This is to people I don't even know that I "meet" or "see" in my life.
Take off the headphones and listen to the screaming of pain in others' lives as you move about in public. God will let you have chance to help if you just pray to Jesus for a chance to share the word.
