Session 15: Open Air Preaching

Open air preaching, getting ready.

Open air preaching is different from witnessing one-on-one. For one thing you need to raise your voice so you can be heard.

Here is open air preaching from start to finish.

There is more to open air preaching than what can be presented here. But here are a few general guidelines.

Step one in open air preaching is to gather a crowd. You need someone to preach to. The easiest way to do this is to go to a place where people were already gathered... maybe people waiting in line.

Ways to gather a crowd include running a contest or doing something unusual, such as having someone in a gorilla suit. Or you could have someone making balloon animals. Trying to talk to people walking by on a sidewalk is not effective, as no one hears enough of your message to get interested in hearing your whole message.

Always be respective to the crowd, and keep your message short. Four to five minutes is good.

Do something to draw a crowd. Then preach for 4-5 minutes. Then thank the people who are listening and stop preaching. Allow some time for individual one-on-one conversations. Then repeat the cycle.

To learn more about open air preaching we recommend the DVD called "Open Air Preaching" (see below) put out by Way of the Master.
