“No sort of defense is needed for preaching outdoors, but it would take a very strong argument to prove that a man who has never preached beyond the walls of his meetinghouse has done his duty.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
The Bible is full of those who preached God’s Word open air. Noah, Moses, Jonah, Jesus, Paul, Peter – just to name a few. Church history is also full of those who preached God’s Word open air. Spurgeon, Wesley, Whitefield, Edwards, Moody, Taylor – just to name a few. In short, preaching the Gospel open air is biblical and that’s why we do it and equip others to do the same.
In recent days, the Lord continues to graciously bless The Cross Current with an increasing number of young evangelists who are burdened to preach His Gospel in the open air (just in case you missed it, I encourage you to check out our last Street Blog posting titled “NEW Open Air Extraordinaires!“). This past Friday, we had the privilege and honour of helping yet another budding preacher “break the sound barrier” for the first time – Bobby Anderson.
We thank God for you and your faithfulness, Bobby!
