My D.Min. teacher, Dr. Richard Peace, has written a book called Holy Conversation: Talking About God in Everyday Life. In this book he advocates that Christians need to pick someone outside of the church to be their "conversation partner" about Spiritual matters.
In this, he says that Christians should be upfront about what they are doing--trying to learn how to talk with non-Christians about their faith. Furthermore, he says that we should be honest and tell them that of course we would love to see them come to believe in Jesus.
We need to be more upfront about who we are with our non-Christian friends. This may spur conversation and interest in Spirituality, and it is disarming. Too many times we don't talk about our faith at all.
Here is the link to his book:
