Tracts can be valuable tools for evangelism. They allow you to present the gospel to someone when you or the other person may not have a lot of time to spend together. Tracts also allow someone, who may not have a lot of experience sharing Jesus, to present the gospel to others in an easy to follow method.

We plan on using tracts at our Fall Festival, as a quick and easy way to make sure every person who attends has been presented with the gospel. As families enter our doors, they will be given a tract along with a pamphlet about our children’s ministry in a plastic bag that will be used to collect their goodies.

In order for tracts to be effective, they must contain a clear and biblical message of the gospel. Unfortunately, I have found that many tracts for children have the tendency to either focus on Heaven as being the primary goal for salvation, rather than a restored relationship with God, or they tend to not spend enough time talking about the seriousness of sin, both of which result in a misunderstanding of the gospel.

Here’s a brief video from Living Waters, in which Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort talk about what every good tract MUST contain and a popular children’s tract that I highly recommend.
