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 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

normally remove tracts if you put them all in the front where they can be
seen. You can open up some tourist brochures and slip tracts inside

GOSPEL STICKER OR LABEL
We do give sticker samples for free.
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
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.

DO NOT SATURATE
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
can place hundreds of tract each day as long as you spread them around town.
