$1k evangelism grant

Posted: August 2, 2009 by Daniel in Uncategorized

There are $1,000 grants for evangelism in Tasmania via Vision 100. have a quick read of this and discuss ideas here on the blog. Here are some inital ideas.

  • spend it all on printing some sweet gospel tracts, then go out on the street and hand them out.
  • set up a voip call centre for a 6-12 month period in a central location and make a roster for evangelist to do random call-up evangelism to Tasmanian residential numbers (it is legal for non-profits to do)
  • Pay me (or someone) for 2 weeks of full time walkup 9-5pm.

Ok, probably only the first suggestion is reasonably conventional and acceptable. What do you think? I have asked the rest of the blog team to comment here on this one, but would like to get some replies and ideas from every reader too.

    sounds good Dan – maybe thousands of tracts from Vista print.

    • Daniel says:

      🙂 yep. I think that would be a good use of money. Then its just a matter of getting them out to people in lots and lots of walk-up and/or corner handout. Its easy to go through a ton in an hour outside the gates at Christmas carols or other events.

    yes. the custom made bulk tracts is the best idea with the most outreach.
    there could be some custom make tracts for some up comming tasmania events.
    eg. a motorbike looking tract for the superx in oct. where 13000 people will be at in lonie.
    eg. agfest tract
    eg. some big silverdome show

    • Daniel says:

      cool. yeah that is the best idea for us. I will put forth the idea that we should design and publish some more tracts and then distribute them. Events could be good because it could be a way of mobilising people for a one time commitment.

      • Angela says:

        All good ideas. Hitting big events with tracts is a good way to get coverage. I suppose footy season will be over by the time we got up and going?

    what is the normal cost of printing a tract when done by the thousand?

    Dude, thanks for applying for one of these grants! Great to discover this blog and all your energy. I’ll be up in Launie this Friday night to speak at BOOST (http://www.facebook.com/s.php?k=200000010&n=-1&init=s%3Agroup&q=boost#/event.php?eid=106172354285) perhaps will see some of you there? Would be great to meet you some time.

    • Daniel says:

      Thanks Mikey. I have also read a bit of your blog🙂 . Unfortunately I’m a bit too old and grumpy for boost. I heard u preach at The Branch a few weeks ago; was very good (except u need a radio/headset mic. *tech note)
