Christians are commanded by Jesus to preach the Gospel to all people. You don't have to be an ordained minister or have a "fire and brimstone" sermon, and it's not limited to Sunday. Rather, be prepared with an informative "head's up" as to the virtues of Christianity to all you associate with.
The reason that most Christians do not evangelize, is because they fear that they are not qualified to save anyone, or they will further mess up a non believer because of their lack of qualifications. That is simply not true. If you feel that you are offending, lighten up. If they are not taking you seriously, take it up a notch. Remember, it is not your job to save anyone, that's God's job. Your job is to plant the seed and let God do the cultivating. Stop trying to save the world.
Are you ashamed? Embarrassed? Is it not "cool" enough for your friends and family? Jesus says if you are ashamed of the Gospel, you are not worthy of Heaven,(Matthew 9:26). Does that scare you? If not, you might not be a Christian. The Bible declares that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Jesus speaks of those that claim to be followers but are not in Matthew 15:8-9.
Please check your Christianity,that you are not among the ones Jesus speaks of when He admonishes false converts. You may need to get on the Rapture Road.
