Sharing The Gospel Using Our Evangelism Booth
An evangelism booth is a location, usually in a park, a fair or
a festival, where we talk with people, share the gospel, and give
out apologetic and evangelistic materials.
The booth is typically set up so that people come to us and ask
questions. This makes it easy to talk about spiritual topics and
what happens after you die, because people ask you about those things.
The purpose is to provide opportunities to practice sharing the
gospel - that day with no delay. There are other situations in which
you may need to built trust before you can share the gospel. The
booth experience is designed to help prepare you for when it is
time to share the gospel.
There will be other times in which you will be in a situation in
which there is just a few minutes in which to share the gospel.
Use the links in the left column to go to each topic.
There is a lot of information on these web pages. Do you need
to know it all? No. All you need to do is come to the booth
and tell people who come to the booth about Jesus.
Read through the pages here. You'll get a feel for what goes on
in our evangelism booth, and get some great tips for sharing the
gospel. When you are at the booth relax, have fun, tell people about
Jesus, and watch the Holy Spirit work.
What Is An Evangelism Booth?
booth usually is 10' x 10' in area, but at some events we may have
a larger space. We typically will have a canopy that provides some
protection from sun and rain. There will be a table with DVDs, books
and tracts. Everything may be given away free.
Sometimes we'll have an exhibit to attract attention and draw people
to the book. For example, we have a display with three
doors. It asks the question, "Can you name three things
God can't do?"
What happens at the booth? Several things:
- We share the gospel.
- People from all nations will come by and ask about the gospel,
Christianity, the Bible or Jesus.
- We hand out gospel tracts, and free books and DVDs.
- Other Christians stop by to talk and see what we are doing.
- Children stop to take part in one of our many children's activities,
such as face painting and crafts.
- Sometimes we have various displays (see left column) such as
dinosaur tracks, optical illusions and the good person test.
- We have fun, and so do the people who visit the booth.
