Another Soul Winning Tool

Those of you who know me are probably aware that my preferred approach to street evangelism is using what I call “the Survey Technique.” By asking short direct questions, you can maintain control of the conversation and find out quickly what a person’s spiritual beliefs are. Although the Survey Technique has helped me lead thousands to the Lord, I’m still open to ultilizing new methods in reaching people with the gospel.

This past Sunday I joined Rodney Howard-Browne's Great Awakening team in evangelizing Washington, DC. They use a tool called the “Soul-Winning Script”, which originated during Pastor Rodney’s “Good News New York” campaign in 1999. I became familiar with the Soul-Winning Script a few years later during evangelism outreaches with Rodney’s church in Tampa, Florida. Until recently I was resistant to using the script because I found it restrictive and thought sinners wouldn’t be receptive to me reading the whole thing to them.

The team leader I was with last Sunday asked me to use the script. Wanting to maintain unity within the group, I complied. It felt awkward at first but I have since embraced the “Soul-Winning Script” as another effective tool in reaching the lost. Using the script helps a soul winner lessen distractions and stay focused on leading people to Jesus. The first afternoon I used the script, I prayed with 17 people to get born again including an entire Hispanic soccer team. Today in the southeastern part of Washington, DC, I led another 21 people to the Lord. To God Be the Glory!

Regardless of the tools you choose to use for witnessing, the important thing is to go out and make yourself available. More of God's people need to open their mouths in order for sinners to hear and receive the gospel.

“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” - Romans 10:14
