TEXAS A&M, COLLEGE STATION

 photo 16641103_10154283918191765_1825318707395955665_n_zpsoa6mzgb5.jpg

Texas A&M was one of the first campuses I ever preached on. It was one of the campuses we preached on my first campus tour back in 2005.

What makes this particular campus great for open air preaching is two fold.

First, the free speech policy is the best. You can just walk on campus, go to the free speech areas, and preach all day. I wish every campus was like that.

Second, there are 66,425 students enrolled. That means that you can preach to a crowd of 390 people, every day of the school year, to reach the whole campus.

Some campuses are so small that you can only preach there a few times before it loses interest. But Texas A&M is so large that it would take a lot of preaching to wear out the campus.

I tag teamed with some other faithful brethren each day which was nice because a crowd was already gathered by the time it was my turn to preach. Of course I have no difficulty drawing a crowd myself but it is nice to get straight into the substance of the content.

There was a bench nearby that I stood on to preach because with so many students, a crowd circled around would drown me out. It was under a tree which was nice for shade also.

It didn’t take long to get some good interaction and dialog going with the students. They were a relatively tamed crowd, which I what I prefer.

By the end of each day, the crowd would sit quietly on the ground and listen. As much as they heckled and debated throughout the day, we always outlast them in energy so that they are tamed by the end of it.

When I see a large crowd of college students sitting on the ground, listening to Bible preaching, I think to myself, “How absurd it is for people to say open air preaching isn’t effective! When else do you see so many lost people voluntarily listening to the gospel?” 

NORTHWEST VISTA, SAN ANTONIO

 photo 16729387_10154297177831765_2933884416040807859_n_zpsik3ngtft.jpg

Northwest Vista was a brand new campus for me. This just goes to show how large of an opportunity we have for open air preaching in this country! I’ve been open air preaching around the country for 14 years and still there are plenty of campuses I have never preached on! We have more opportunity than we have preachers!

There was some kind of permit process for this campus but local brethren I partnered with handled that. There was a nice amphitheater right next to a lake which made this preaching location very scenic.

I was a little late to arrive and by the time I did, the brethren already had a nice crowd of students going. 

 photo 16707221_10154298317356765_7495882042629349336_o_zps3y5hlqjj.jpg

The preaching started at the edge of the amphitheater because that was the most strategic location based on the foot traffic. But once a crowd was gathered and was handed over to me, I moved to the center of the amphitheater to center the crowd.

What is always great about amphitheaters is how they provide seating for the audience. That naturally calms them down and also encourages them to stay longer.

 photo 16708444_10154297391806765_5600839084381677192_n_zpscedrn4wr.jpg

The size of the crowd continued to grow throughout the day as we preached loud and clear about sin, hell, Jesus, repentance, etc. You don’t need any special magic tricks, musicians, or entertainers to draw a crowd. All you need is the power of the gospel! The truth of the gospel can prick their hearts, arrest their attention, and stop them in their tracks!

Great preaching continued for hours and hours.

TESTIMONIES

I am often asked, “Is your ministry really effective? Do you see people come to the Lord?” My answer is, “All the time! I see people repent of their sins and get right with God on a regular basis.”

The problem is, you don’t usually see that in the YouTube videos. When you see the videos, you see a lot of heckling, debating, etc. That is because during the open air preaching people are being pricked in their conscience. And their initial response to conviction is to resist it with anger, mockery, etc.

But those same people go home with the arrows of conviction in their heart. Many will then repent at home, get right with God, and email me about it later. 

I get emails and messages from people ALL THE TIME telling me how they repented of their sins after listening to the open air preaching. Below are just some of the most recent fruit we have seen.

ENCOURAGED TO REPENT

“I appreciate what you do Jesse I feel as if you saved me from my sins by telling the truth about God and me wanting to repent and give my life to God. I hope to go to Heaven someday and see God and his Angels and people who made it there and all kinds of animals and you. But first I must repent of all my sins and give my life to God Jesus Christ and live a holy life and tell everyone the truth about God.”

WHAT JESUS SAID ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY

 photo BiblicalTruthResourcesHEADER_zps8a3b1e04.jpg

WHAT JESUS SAID ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY

Someone just recently asked me:

“what exactly jesus said about homosexuality, he preached about a lot of things, so you must know what he explicitly said about homosexuality, please teach me”

Jesus taught that sex and marriage was between a male and a female and also essentially spoke against transgenderism:

“And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?” Matthew 19:4-5

Notice key words here like “male and female” “father and mother” “a man” “his wife” “they twin shall be one flesh” etc.

Sex and marriage is between male and female.

They asked this question in light of my recent outreach to the First Gay Pride of Dunnville Canada and my video called, “Homosexual Commits Hate Crime Against Christians @ Dunnville Gay Pride.”

Free Speech in a Barricade | Jesse Morrell @ Temple University

TEMPLE UNIVERSITY, PHILADELPHIA

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.40.02 PM_zpszn0f3u5p.png

Temple University was a new campus to me but the pastor that I was there with had been there before. He had contacted the Police ahead of time to have a barricade set up. The students on this campus can get pretty rowdy.

We had a young man on the team who is just starting out in open air preaching. It’s always great to see new preachers being raised up! Nothing helps to cement your convictions than to publicly proclaim and defend them! 

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.40.37 PM_zpspjfvxidz.png

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.41.23 PM_zpsqlju5mxr.png

It didn’t take too long for students to swarm around the barricade. They didn’t know we were coming but apparently had their rainbow flag ready. I guess some college students just walk around with those today? It’s sad that most universities today are just liberal brainwashing factories, seeking to indoctrinate this next generation with immorality. Professors will even start attacking God, the Bible, and Jesus Christ on the first day of class, seeking to humiliate any Christian in the room. The vast majority of Christian children who are sent off to college actually leave the faith once they are there. That’s why it is a good thing we show up on campus, to defend the faith and call sinners to repentance!

We ended up having a pretty big Police presence around us. Students ended up making their own signs of protest. Their signs didn’t say anything rational or intelligent. It was just mockery for Christianity or defense of sinning. Sin is irrational so it is hard for them to try to rationally defend it. Instead they have to resort to other tactics, like chanting or threats of violence.

I was glad that I wasn’t the only preacher there. We had a nice team of believers. My throat became hoarse so I was glad to pass the crowd off. As far as acoustics go, this location was hard. We had to compete with the noise from the street traffic and there was no wall or building that we could echo and bounce our voice off of. The result was that we all strained our voices. As we were leaving campus we walked through a better spot that is much quieter that we plan on using in the future. It also has more foot traffic and could accommodate a bigger crowd. I am excited to return!

UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA 

Campus Admin Tries Squashing Christian Free Speech and Fails

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.42.44 PM_zpsl7vm8wtn.png

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.45.26 PM_zpsnumwbtmw.png

The University of Pennsylvania was a NEW campus for me! It’s a private ivy league school but us campus preachers happen to know that the major walk way through campus is actually a PUBLIC STREET! It looks like just a paved walkway but its a city owned street that the campus was build around. 

The Univ. of Penn is actually the fourth oldest college in the United States I believe and actually has some connection to a building that was created for the preaching of George Whitefield, a traveling open-air preaching in the 1700’s. One of the things I love about preaching in my home area of New England is the rich spiritual history that is as. It is sad to see how spiritually dead and post-Christian and anti-Christian the New England area has become. 

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.43.03 PM_zpsgwibybtp.png

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.44.06 PM_zpsjtycgobv.png

We were preaching next to the “Benjamin Franklin” statue. Benjamin Franklin once went to hear George Whitefield open air preaching. Now his statue was hearing ours! Franklin’s gone now but the gospel carries on! 

It didn’t take too long before a nice crowd gathered around us. This happened with the help of a homosexual heckler. He was loud and obnoxious enough to help us get the attention of those walking by.

My strategy for open-air preaching, or my recipe for drawing a crowd is very simple. Controversy – Conflict – Content. Using more biblical terminology, the steps would be Convict – Contend – Content. That is, I start with a controversial topic like homosexual to get their attention and interaction. It won’t be too long until I get a heckler. Then I content with him (conflict) until a nice crowd stops to watch. It’s like when the Police pull someone over, or there is a car accident, other people slow down to see what happened. Nothing draws a crowd more than an open-air preaching contending with a heckler. Then I move on to phase three – content. Once the use of a heckler has helped me capture the attention of an audience, I deliver them the actual content I want them to hear. I warn them about sin and God’s judgment, tell them about the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and call them to repentance and faith to be born again.

If I start losing the attention of the crowd, I start back at phase one again and continue this cycle throughout the day. This helps me to draw and maintain a crowd for hours and hours. The longest I have preached was seven and a half hours and I had a captive audience almost the entire time. It’s simple: Controversy – Conflict – Content – Repeat.  While some open-air preachers hardly ever draw a crowd, with this strategy I hardly ever fail to get one.

Whenever you sow the seeds of the gospel, the devil comes to sow tares. On this campus, the administrators came against us by sending out their landscaping crew with leaf blowers to drown us out! There were no leaves in sight, except the few that they would blow out of the bushes that you couldn’t even see before. But that didn’t matter. They weren’t there to clean up the campus. The campus was already clean. They were there to oppose us and try to shut us down. They literally followed us around wherever we moved! 

Since the administrators were trying to shut us down with the loud noise of the blowers, we took our bullhorn out. Free speech includes the right to be loud enough to be heard. Then an administrator came up to me and tried to tell me bullhorns were not legally aloud and I had to put mine away. It wasn’t any louder than their blowers. But I refused and told him that I would need to hear that from a Police Officer. We had about 10 Police Officers standing around anyways. The administrator never did get an Officer to tell me that the bullhorn was not allowed, so we kept using it as long as they had their blowers out.

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.47.01 PM_zps3labobn3.png

Every time we moved to a new location to get away from the leaf blowers, they would be right behind us. Everywhere we went, they followed. Even when we walked three or four blocks away, they followed us there too! They would circle around us and pretend to be blowing leaves, like the deceptive devils that they were. But it was really the liberal administrators of the Univ. of Penn. being intolerant, closed-minded, anti-Christian bigots! Just calling it like it is. 

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.47.29 PM_zpsppxzvgpo.png

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.48.18 PM_zps0cd4gowe.png

I came up with a strategy to try to get them to put their leaf blowers away. Since they would follow us all around campus, wherever we went, and they were making so much noise with their leaf blowers, we had to find their sore spot on campus. That would be the area where they would be disrupting enough classes to the point that they would decide it is better for them to put their leaf blowers away. They were the ones disrupting their own campus. 

We started our preaching near the Benjamin Franklin statue where we were not disturbing any classrooms. But since they tried to drown us out there, and followed us wherever we went, we decided to set up shop right next to their business school – where President Donald Trump graduated from. That proved to be a sore spot for them on campus. It was also next to some students dormitories who were upset at all the noise. The students even set up a sound system to blast music to try to drown out the leaf blowers. So we had leaf blowers, a bullhorn, and a sound system all going at the same time disrupting the classrooms! All because they wouldn’t let us preach in peace and quiet near the Benjamin Franklin statue. 

This did give is negotiation leverage and power. I told the administrators that they were only hurting themselves and are making bad executive decisions. If they would simply let us preach near the Benjamin Franklin statue, where we are not bothering any classrooms, we would put the bullhorn away and just preach on our soap box to whoever wants to stop and listen. 

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.48.51 PM_zps3bpppqpu.png

After a couple hours of battling the administrators, they finally agreed to put their noise makers away and we got back to preaching at our original location! Victory! Praise God! And thank you also to my Facebook friends who prayed about this as it was going on! This gospel shall be preached! 

TESTIMONIES

How our Ministry is having an Impact! 

Someone just said on my latest Open Air Outreach video, “Thanks for the new upload brother Jesse. I am a young teen and I have been watching your videos for a while and you have inspired me to start reading the Bible and studying it and God. Soon I will preach out in public and it’s thanks to you. God bless :)”

“YES, same with me Brother Jesse. I’m 18 and watching your videos have really encouraged me to preach to my friends and classmates. I’m emboldened because I know the arguments that they’ll present due to your college preaching. You’ve really been a blessing to me. God bless you and please don’t stop what you do”

“Thank you for everything you’re are doing Jesse Morrell. Because of you, my brother started his own YouTube Channel and has already preached openly and handed out Tracks. If it wasn’t for you he would not be out in the world sharing the truth about Christ.”

Free Book on the Doctrine of Free Will | Jesse Morrell

ALL of the Early Church for the first three hundred years universally believed in the doctrine of free will and ONLY the Gnostic heretics denied it. Augustine, when he converted out of Gnosticism, brought Gnostic doctrine into the church and later influenced men like Martin Luther and John Calvin. The Calvinist denial of free will is rooted in Gnostic theology, as this documentary shows.

This documentary is a chapter out of my book “The Natural Ability of Man: A Study on Free Will & Human Nature.”

FIVE KEYS TO LIVING

A HOLY AND SIN-FREE LIFE

 photo Screen Shot 2017-02-03 at 4.36.45 PM_zps6i6s65x6.png

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to quickly send you a nice sermon to listen to over this weekend! It’s called, “Five Keys To Living a Holy & Sin-Free Life.”

Jesus commanded us to “be perfect” and “sin no more” but HOW do we actually do that? Since I often preach “repent of your sins,” “stop sinning,” and “be holy,” I am regularly asked by people, “But HOW do we actually do that?”  The Bible not only tells us to do it, but also tells us how to do it!

This issue should deeply concern all of us because sin hurts everyone involved. Sin hurts yourself, those around you, and even God. But a holy life is a blessing to yourself and those around you. Sin naturally tends to misery but holiness tends to happiness.
