Woman relaxing in lounge chair on beach with text overlay saying, 5 easy ways to share the gospel while you're relaxing on vacation.

Can we find quick ways to evangelize while traveling and still focusing on having a relaxing vacation?

We should always be mindful of people around us who haven’t heard the gospel, and that’s no different even when we’re on vacation. But how can we stay obedient to the Great Commission without losing precious vacation time with our families? These 5 ideas will help you strike the perfect balance!

1. Leave gospel tracts at your hotel/rental property/cabin

Whether you’re staying at a hotel, an Airbnb, or on a cruise ship, leaving gospel tracts wherever you’re vacationing is an easy way to share the gospel.

Some places in a hotel or on a ship that are sure to get lots of foot traffic are the lobby, near the pool, and of course the breakfast area.

These are great spots to leave several tracts that clearly share the gospel, and anyone who passes by or sits down can conveniently pick them up and encounter the hope of the gospel!

Other spots that are perfect for leaving gospel tracts at hotels include the business center, conference room, and fitness center.

Another fantastic opportunity is right in your own hotel room or cabin—when you’re ready to check-out, leave several gospel tracts with a nice tip for the housekeeping staff… and make sure to leave your room as tidy for them as possible.

Gospel tracts that are easy to share on vacation

When leaving tracts in public areas, it’s important to find ones that are eye-catching. Here are some unique tracts you can order from Amazon that fit the bill!

2. Wear evangelistic clothing items when you travel

There’s no easier way to be a witness to people you encounter than by what you wear. Take advantage of this while you’re on vacation and shine the light to everyone you meet without being cringey or awkward!

T-shirts, hoodies, and ball caps are great ways to passively evangelize while you’re on vacation! Here are some suggestions available on Amazon:

3. Leave gospel tracts at tourist attractions

Amusement parks, monuments, and museums are prime locations to leave gospel tracts while on vacation! Many other people are traveling through or have come to the same vacation destination, so it only makes sense to take advantage of the opportunity to leave gospel tracts where many people pass through.

Chances are that while you’re on vacation, you’ll be going out to eat quite a bit, so don’t forget to leave tracts in restaurants! Leave a tract behind in the waiting area once you’re called to be seated at a table, and always leave a tract after your meal along with a generous tip.

And don’t forget your rental car! After you’ve tidied it up, leave a tract on the dashboard or in the console, in the glove compartment, or in the side compartment in the car door. Remember to leave a few tracts on a table at the car rental facility while you’re waiting to pick up your car at the beginning of your trip, too!

You never know if someone will find it immediately or if it will take a while before someone comes across it—it could be an employee of the rental agency or maybe even the next person to rent that car. Pray that the right person would find it at the right time, and that God would soften their heart to His message.

5. Leave gospel tracts on the plane or at the airport

Public places of transportation are excellent opportunities for leaving gospel tracts. You can leave them at the airport or even on the plane!

Just think, you can put one inside the tray table at your seat before you disembark, or in the little pocket on front of tray table.

And there are plenty of public spaces in the airport where you could place a gospel tract or 2 for people to find—in seating areas, near food courts or restaurants, on window ledges, and even on restroom counters.

All it takes is a little thought and creativity, and the options are practically endless!

Leave the full Gospel of John instead of a tract

Did you know there are full gospels of John that are compact enough to leave in places just like you leave a tract? Ray Comfort of Living Waters designed the Million Dollar Gospel of John for just such occasions!

If you haven’t see these million dollar gospels of John, they are amazing! At first glance, they look like a stack of million dollar bills! Of course, no one would leave a stack of millions laying around, so they’re not tricky-looking at all, just very neat!

On the inside of the book, Ray explains why it’s designed the way it is and that the treasure contained in the gospel is much more valuable than a stack of millions!
