About Us




  This is an article listing many ways you can distribute Gospel tracts, coins, gifts, etc.  Many of the methods are comical and will surprise by ambush the unaware sinner to meet God face-to-face on the spot.

  The purpose of a Gospel tract is to stop people in their tracks so they can read the Gospel.  It is like God stopping them and tapping them on the shoulder saying, "Son, (daughter) it is time we have a little chat.  I am patient, but I want you to make a decision for me or against me right now."

  Sinners are entangled with life's affairs and most churchgoers are too busy not caring for the lost, so for those who believe Jesus' words that we must gather or we scatter these tips will be fun to try and they will bear much good fruit.

  Be aware that you are starting your very own gift ministry. You are giving the gift of God's Word to the lost sinner.  Finance this yourself.  Do not beg others to give you money donations.  God hired you, so let God pay the bills.

  We will be using Gospel booklets, one page tracts, stickers & labels, gospel coins & gift items and even neat things you can do with verse cards.  Just click on the bookmark below to take you to that section of the page that interests you.

We do give sticker samples for free.  Click here.

  You know those Gospel stickers you see in the children's section in Christian bookstores?  I bought some and found that if you stick them everywhere where it really gets the Gospel message out. 

  What I found that was amazing is that I would come back to a city a year or more later and I could still find some stickers still there witnessing!  Each day while I was gone they kept sharing God's message.  I have since become convinced this is a powerful advertising tool to reach the lost. 

  Of course, many stickers do get removed, but not all of them and they are so economical.  Even the person who removes the sticker is forced to read the Gospel message! Try it.  Don't forget that you can place mounting tape on the verse card and it will stick to just about any surface.  You can buy it at hardware stores.

  You can use a Gospel Coin or another gift item like bookmarks, key chains, etc. that have the Word of God imprinted or engraved on it.  You can find them in Christian bookstores and ask to see their catalog for many more ideas of products you can use to witness.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Use mounting tape and stick a Gospel Coin anywhere and everywhere.  Even stick them to hanging leaves of a tree or bush near a walkway. The sinner will find a real money tree giving them a gold coin. For him it will be finding the tree of life.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Place the coin on a step or curb.  That is where people look down as they walk and they find the coin.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Drop a coin inside a beer six-pack or on some can food items in supermarket.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)When you distribute paper tracts it normally is okay to saturate your normal visiting locations, just as long as you frequently keep changing the tract subjects.  Let's assume you keep going to a certain location each day or week.  Eventually the same old people will be finding your same old tracts and they will just throw them away because the read it a dozen times or more.  Rotate the subject matter.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Do not keep placing Gospel Coins or expensive gift items in the same locations as a routine.  Otherwise the same old people will be collecting your Gospel Coins and gift items in a huge jar at home.  You don't want the same people to be finding your gifts.  So, leave them in different places and at different times scattered all over town.  Consider traveling a lot to go to other cities so you can reach more people.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Don't leave too many coins in vending machines.  Just one or two.  Because some people and kids check the coin return slots as they walk by and will take all of your coins if you leave too many.  Also, you will find the same people doing this each day, so they will be the only ones getting your coins and gifts.  It does no good if someone is collecting your gifts and storing them in a huge jar at home.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)You can drop Gospel Coins on sidewalks as you stroll along, but make sure you are not being followed.  Kids will often see you dropping or placing coins and take each one you leave behind.  Take many zigzag routes and enter stores to window shop, take rest breaks.  Place coins like an Easter egg hunt, make them a bit hard to find, but not too hard that they can't be found.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Do not place tracts inside businesses like department store or supermarket too often.  The employees that stock the shelves every night will find most of them.  At first this is good, but if done too often they just throw them away, so you waste your time and money. 

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)You can place hundreds of tract each day as long as you spread them around town.
