Talking to non believers about Christ can be both spiritaul and physical events. If you want to talk to non believers about Christ, you should first of all pray about it asking God to help to say the right things.
Dont condemn them or condemn their sins straightaway. Take your time and share a practical story of yourself or any other you know who did not really had a good time practicing the sins they practiced. Be subtle about this but try to tell the story. It will be good if it's a story they can confirm.

Dont go into unnecessary argument with them. Learn how to withdraw when argument is heating up so that you can maintain the counselling friendship and you can always come back to them.

Pray for them

Witnessing must be led of the Holy Spirit. Men trying witness or push Jesus on others will fail. Only by the anointing of the Holy Spirit can a lasting impression be made on unbelievers. Before I was arrested by Jesus and convicted of my sins church people would come to visit from time to time to ask me to come to church. No sincere words about God's love for me or Jesus' sacrifice. Many times I want to witness but my mouth is kept shut. Without the anointing you are spinning your spiritual tires.

"some were sent and some just went".

Ezekiel 3:26-27 KJVS
And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.

I used to pick up hitchhikers as God led me and some of them I hit to witness to and others I didn't. I drive along praying in the spirit under my breath and waiting for the anointing to fall. When it did they certainly listened. I remember one fellow saying after the Lord finished speaking through me "where did you learn to talk like that "? I knew he'd heard from God.
Pray for God to pour out His spirit on you and give yoh His words. Remember Jesus told us to settle it in our hearts not to consider beforehand what we were to witness. The Holy Spirit is our guide in all things. Not our own ideas or some kind of plan. As many as are led by the spirit these are the sons of God.

He is the one to loosen our tongues. Him alone.
[27] But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God ; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house.

Warzero quote- What are your cue's when talking to non Christians?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I find a good approach is to let THEM do most of the talking, namely to just let them ask questions and give them simple brief answers.
However, if they won't listen I walk rather than waste any more time on them, they had their chance..:)
Jesus said:- "If people won't listen to you, shake off the dust from your feet as you leave, as a testimony to them" (Matt 10:14/15)
"The Jews argued with him, so Paul said 'I'm clear of my responsibility' and left" (Acts 18:6-7)

What are your cue's when talking to non Christians? Have you ever brought any of them to knowng Jesus (Having faith) Do they change, or stay the same. I only ask that last question because I knew some Christians who didn't seem to be anything but self centered.

But then I have met a few more who are very diffrent from most people, you know the one's who judge you while they do silly things.
Do you find fault with the Jesus as depicted in the NT? He is the good Shepard.

A great conversation starter does not need to be super thought out. It can be something as simple as, "How is the weather?"

It is also useful if people know the "why" to why they need Jesus Christ as their Savior. If we don't explain this we would be like a blasting trumpet to those that have not given their life to God.

The cues are usually all the same. I can usually tell right off just by looking at them.

If you're in a bad circle of people. Bad situation ir neighborhood. You should consider maybe the Lord put you there for a reason?

It's the sick that need a physician. So the Lord would need boots on the ground in that area. Sometimes I feel like He dropped me into thr valley of the shadow of death!
The best thing you can do for those people is love them. And pray for them.

Hey, what's wrong with the voice of a trumpet? Lol

There was a time I was warming up on the RR tracks before playing trumpet in Church and the Pastor got a panicked phone call from a backslidden neighbor who thought the Angel Gabriel had descended :hysterical

They were in Church THAT day

Lol! What an interesting story. While there is of course nothing wrong with a trumpet, they can be loud and obnoxious if they want to be =P More of a figure of speech, I guess.
