Street Evangelism Training
"Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth." ~ John Wesley
Do you have a sense of urgency and a strong inward desire to proclaim and share the gospel to the thousands of people walking around you? Are you seeing more and more people who need to hear the Gospel, about how there is forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ? Do you weep for the lost, is it tearing you up on the inside? Are you tired of having your heartache for the lost, and not do anything, or not enough? Are you tired of seeing the direction that everyone and everything is going, do you want to reach out your hand to someone before it's too late? Do you feel something stirring inside you, making you want to stand up and speak the truth, that there is Salvation in Jesus Christ and to compel all men and women to repent of their sins, turn to God, and believe in and trust the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
Then welcome to Street Evangelism Training, where we put the Great Commission in to action, and take to heart when God said 'Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame (guilty sinners and the reprobate, i.e. mankind).' 'Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full'.
Our humblest apologies, this section, along with the majority of the website, is still under construction.
As time permits, Lord willing, we will be adding free original content here for you to use, download, share, and learn from; but for now, here are some outstanding evangelism training materials:
(please pray also that God will put in our paths, in our hands, in our minds, and in our hearts what He wants said, expressed, and taught here on His evangelism website and for His glory)

Handling Objections To Street Evangelism and Street Preaching:
Some Christians, or least those that identify themselves as Christians, may try to get you stop in one way or another. They mention effectiveness, friendship evangelism, or simply state that it is wrong. Simply ask them "how someone get's to Heaven?" Whatever their response, which is usually wrong, point to all the people walking by and say "don't you think they need to hear that?" Some will logically see that you are right, and may thank you or congratulate you; as a true servant of Jesus Christ, just simply tell them something that you are not doing this for yourself, but that some might be saved. Sometimes, the 'Christian' will continue and say that you are right to share the Gospel, but that you are doing it the wrong way. Hinting at friendship evangelism or letting people see that you are Christian by your actions, and maybe they will talk to you because you are different. The problem with any method that does not tell the Gospel is that them seeing that you are Christian, and if possible seeing that you are the best Christian ever, cannot save them. Nor can the best friendship you could ever have with them, can save them. Moreover, what if you don't have tomorrow? You or perhaps them can be in a tragic car accident this very night. Granted you may be an excellent driver, but there are many horrible drivers on the road and many are distracted from text messages to grooming, and when you included alcohol, basically tomorrow is not promised to anybody.
"How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?" ~ Romans 10:14
