Newsletter Archive: Fox News on Street Preachers – 10/30/2005

For many years, the newsletters for Open Air Outreach were only published through email. Those newsletters were not posted online. We are now in the process of archiving these old newsletters online so that they are available to the body of Christ at large to read and be encouraged and edified by them.

The contents from this post was an email newsletter sent out on 10/30/2005

TUESDAY, October 25th, 2005:

FOX NEWS (local) showed up on the Texas Tech campus in Lubbock and filmed part of the open-air preaching. We had very large crowds! On Monday FOX had a few words about the preaching on the bottom of their screen, but this time they actually had footage.

We also made the front page of the campus paper.

Unfortunately they only quoted us on judgment and hell, but never mentioned the name Jesus.

That evening we had an evangelism seminar at Family Harvest Church, which
ended up having around 70 in attendance!

WEDNESDAY, October 26, 2005:

We were moved this day to a different public forum area of the Texas Tech
campus, because a student group had the other places reserved. It wasn’t the best spot, almost off campus next to a construction site and also the band practice, but we were still able to draw a nice crowd together and keep them for quite a few hours.

One heckler walked around with a portable radio blasting HEAVY METAL music to disturb the preaching. I even heard the host of the radio show say, “There are some preachers out on the Texas Tech campus preaching, but we have a guy out there with a radio playing our music, so we’re going to be playing HEAVY METAL!”

THURSDAY, October 27th, 2005:

We went to the University of North Texas in Denton. We preached a bit and
were able to draw small crowds. I had preached for almost two hours, but still only to a small crowd. The reason was because campus preacher Tom Short was also preaching in a different free speech area, to crowds of hundreds.

I had heard of Tom before. We decided to take the day to go and listen to
him, and take some notes of course. Tom really knew a lot about crowd control, made strong points, kept the crowd entertained, answered their questions, and preached the truth of God. It was great.

FRIDAY, October 28th, 2005:

We went back to the U.N.T. campus, and this day had the best forum area to
preach in. We all took turns preaching. We had crowds of 100-150+ and
preached for about 6 hours.

After the meeting, the crowds were still there and the Christians on campus
were talking and ministering to everyone one2one. Open air on campuses really encourages the Christians to minister and to be bolder in their witnessing. So far, the G.N.N. campus tour has been more then I could have expected.
