Street Preaching

I am not a big fan of street preaching as I delineated in a post from a number of years ago in a series on evangelistic methodology. The primary reason I have an aversion to street preaching evangelism is how hordes of crack pots, ruffians, and spiritual bullies have hijacked the practice and turned it into a freakish, side show atmosphere of crude signage and insulting remarks that only leads to mockery of my precious Lord.

However, a group of individuals are wanting to reclaim street preaching from the buffoonery it has become and return it to a biblical means of the public proclamation of the gospel. Here's a brief introductory video to their efforts:

I hope they do well. I have always been thankful of those men who attempt to street evangelize in a biblical fashion. I know I would like to see them put together a how-to presentation on the most effective means to convey the gospel.

Street one-on-one encounters are amazing when you explain God's grace in Christ to someone with a spirit of gentleness and patience.

You can even start meeting the same people every week sometimes.

I feel the same way you do about the shouting type of thing, but would also love to see it practiced Biblically as well.

Street Preaching (as in the thought of me street preaching) scares the carp out of me... but also shows just how shallow I might be as a Christian... God help me.

I am a street preacher (or I prefer to be called an open-air evangelist)in the Philippines for 12 years (1979-1991)and I use the Open Air Campaigners method. God transplanted me to Houston, TX where I am at the present time. I do church planting I'm in my 3rd, by God's grace) but I still do open-air preaching here in the U.S. and it still brings souls to acknowledge Christ as Savior.
