Best Places to Evangelize

Okay, what are your favorite places to spread the Gospel?

I have found renting a booth at a flea market to be awesome. Hand out tracts and plenty of good one on one witnessing as well as getting to know your flea market neighbors and sharing with them.

Also, local parks and especially public festivals. July 4th here 3 partners and I witnessed to around 70-90 people at a festival and handed out probably 500 million dollar bill tracts and New Testaments. Several young people really close to repentance I believe. It was awesome. Made me forget about all the self-righteous people who got mad at us for trying to share.

My best friend likes downtown, college scene on Friday and Saturday nights but that is not for the weak of heart. Make sure you're prepared both spiritually and biblically.

One last and will let yall respond. Restaurant waiters/waitresses. Had some really good experiences there too...aside from my everyday work/society experiences.

Okay, where do you go?

Any place where there are people. Last week, our local Catholic church had a carnival and we went there to share the Gospel and pass out tracts.

The week before that, we went to the NASCAR races down in Dover. Tens of thousands of people there just walking around in the hot sun. We had coolers of ice cold water and handed them out with tracts.

I love to go to the University of Pennsylvania and do open air.

I have found renting a booth at a flea market to be awesome. Hand out tracts and plenty of good one on one witnessing as well as getting to know your flea market neighbors and sharing with them.
Never done that, but I have set up a table in the park with a sign that said, "Lonesome? Need to talk to someone? Need Prayer?" You'd be amazed at the response I got.

Also, local parks and especially public festivals. July 4th here 3 partners and I witnessed to around 70-90 people at a festival and handed out probably 500 million dollar bill tracts and New Testaments. Several young people really close to repentance I believe. It was awesome. Made me forget about all the self-righteous people who got mad at us for trying to share.
Public fairs are always good. We have something here called "Canal Day". We always take coolers full of bottled water and pass them out with tracts.

One last and will let yall respond. Restaurant waiters/waitresses. Had some really good experiences there too...aside from my everyday work/society experiences.
We always ask our waitress, "How can we pray for you today?"

Nice stuff. Waiters/waitresses when asking us if we're still hungry or thirsty will normally get a reply from us like, "Absolutely. Hungry for the Word of God and thirsty for the water of life."

Being in a motrocycle ministry we hit bars and clubs mostly. But any mass public event is good to share the gospel.

We also like to "host" open cookouts with free food. Free food and motorcycles can draw a crowd.

Another good approach is after they bring your food they will usually ask, "can I get you anything else?". This is when you can say, "well, we're about to ask God to bless this meal is there anything you would like prayer for?". You would be surprised how many will say yes which opens the door.

Thanks guys. All great ideas. Keep'em coming!!!!

i love to hear about people witnessing

for me its not about attracting large crowds and just asking people questions...

i wear a bracelet with Jesus and various saints on it, which often sparks off a conversion with people, and i also bring up the subject by saying stuff like ''at church this sunday we...''

people are usually eager to discuss christianity

Just out of curiosity, how much does it cost to rent a booth at a flea market?

Depends on the flea market and the size of the booth.

Usually around $25 per table.
