 Street Preaching

Okay, reading thru many different brother that Street Preach has motivated me alot.

Yet, I'm 'still on hold'. And God does that alot with me, im a GO GO GO GO GO GO GO kinda person. I'm still on hold and I'm not worried about it much because I know and God knows when im 'let go' things will happen.(many mightly things).

Before I go off and 'street preach' I will be ministering to the Jewish people first, and if you think this is 'wrong' listen to Art Katz's message [url=http://69.44.157.77/sermons/SID3122.mp3]To the Jew First[/url]

But, after that I WILL be Street Preaching. I'd like to personally to go that Evanglism Boot Camp, but I don't think I need that kinda thing.

So, thats why i made this thread. To ask all you 'street preachers' some advice.

What is the Law against Street Preaching in America.
What are some 'do's and donts' when you preach?
What are Great places to begin the preaching?
Should you always bring tracts?
Is their any need of a follow up, or is the purpose to just bring 'genuine repentance'.
And Also, what Exactually is the PURPOSE of Street Preaching.
Any recommened Sermons (audio/video) or devotionals on Street Preaching? (except 'Hells Best Kept Secret and True and False converstion, cause i know those..lol)
And any additional advice to give to me, in the beginning stages of doing this, because i will most likly be doing this by myself in the beginning.

You should be allowed to preach anywhere that is public.

Make sure everything you do is done in love, and that everything you say is scriptural. Stick to those simple guidelines and you should be fine.

I started at bus stops. I didn't have to worry about gathering a crowd or keeping a crowd, only had to worry about content. Bus stops, parks, college campuses, club areas, public squares. There are only two qualifications for a good preaching spot: There must be people and it must be public.

Quote:

It's always good to leave someone with more information, something that they can take home and think about.

Christ never followed anybody, people followed Him. A truly genuine convert will naturally seek after food. While it's good to stay in contact with people, it's not absolutely vital.

It's also good to get contact information for someone who may have more questions. That way your witnessing will continue and you may get to see them through to repentance.

Quote:

Col 1:28 "Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus."

All the information found at www.wayofthemaster.com and www.livingwaters.com. You could also listen to some audio on my website of street preaching.

I recently wrote an article called "Wisdom in Witnessing and Points for Preaching" which you can find at: [url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/articles/index.php?view=category&cid=304]Articles[/url]

 Re:

Thanks, am I able to preach at the Movie Theaters? Like there are SOOOOO many kids there, and it's been the #1 spot in our area, over 100 kids are there. Perfect place, and my desire, there are like 10 cops there, so im wondering 'would i get arrested'.

And are they allowed to move me. 'away from the entrance'?

 Re:

Rule of thumb: if it is a government owned piece of land with concrete, you are allowed to practice your first ammendment right there. There are various local ordinances that always come into play that vary from town to town, such as noise. Such places include sidewalks, parks, colleges, etc. Some sidewalks might actually be private property though, but, usually in my experience, such is not the case. I don't think most cops will just arrest you without some warnings, most will at least inform you of if you are preaching on public property or not. Whenever possible, try to comply with the officers as best as possible.

 Re:

It varies. Sometimes it will be great, sometimes people will act like you aren't even there.

 Re: Street Preaching

Fantastic!

You allready mentioned Hells best kept secret yourself... On this site, there is a section with some videos of Way of the master. There is also one specific video on street preaching and a audio teaching (street preaching from a to z). Check it out: it is in the section called Ray Comfort.

Remember to follow the Holy Spirit in all you do and say and you'll do fine in Christ!

Best regards,

In Christ,
Fernando

 Re:

Ya, I definatlly follow the Holy Spirit, cause im 17 and really don't know all that much to witness to every human being, at times i say things that I think are stupid but ended up planted a good seed on furtle ground.

I'm used to witnessing one-on-one, just not to open-air/street preaching.

Thanks.

 Re: Street Preaching

You have received some excellent advice already, I would like to add the following link to a well written article by R.A. Torrey that contains some very practical advice on open air preaching, it's well worth the read.

In Christ,

Ron
