This street survey has been developed for door to door knocking, public events or just up town.
The survey simply asks 5 questions that will hopefully lead you to an opportunity to share the gospel with those who are willing to do the survey.
You go through the questions as quickly as you can, taking note of their answers, which may help you understand where they are at with God.
The key to good communication is to ask lots of questions to engage them. So listen to their answers, but you don’t need to challenge them on their answers.

Bible In 11
At this point you can give them a Bible in 11 card (www.biblein11.com) and a Gospel tract, and complete the questionnaire below. Or you could start the good person test.
The Good Person Test
Remember, the key to good communication is to ask lots of questions to engage them. So listen to their answers, but you don’t need to challenge them on their answers.
- Would you consider yourself to be a good person?
- What does it mean to be a good person?
- If there was a heaven, would you be good enough to go there?...
Remember the purpose of the survey is to create an opportunity to share the gospel with them. Now use the Good Person Test to Share The Gospel.
Your Next Step
When you have completed the survey and either given them a Gospel Tract or share the Gospel with them....
Offer to pray for them. You will be surprised how many people will eagerly accept your invitation to lay hands on them and pray.
Then you can ask them the following non compulsory questions.
This is for those who would like a free bible or some follow-up.
