Another Mission Trip to Canada!

I was only home from my first mission trip to Canada for a month before I left for another one. On my first trip we preached in Dunnville, Niagara, and Toronto. This trip we preached in Cornwall, Montreal, and Ottawa. When I first started my street ministry 16 years ago, I had no idea God would open up so many doors for me to preach the Gospel in so many cities.

Cornwall Canada



There is a church in Cornwall Canada called “Gospel Truth Outreach” that is very active in street ministry. They invited me out to do some Evangelism Seminars at their church and then join them on outreaches in various neighboring cities.

I preached four times in the church during my trip, on “How to Convert Sinners,” “Is Street Preaching Effective,” “Street Preacher Secrets,” “Your Sin Hurts God!” These videos are not on my Youtube yet but I am exciting to say that they soon will be.

The Bible says, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30

There is a real wisdom that goes into soul winning. In fact, there is a real “psychology” to it, as there are various states of mind a sinner must go through on the pathway to conversion to Christ.

Charles Finney, the great American Revivalist, taught that there were four distinct types of sinners: Careless Sinners, Awakened Sinners, Convicted Sinners, and Converted Sinners. Where the person is at in these four stages determines how you should witness and deal with them.

If a sinner is careless, they don’t care about God. They have no interest. So you start by getting them interested. When I am open-air preaching, I might start off by pointing out, “You’re all gonna die!” This get’s them interested in spiritual things.

Or, as Finney said, sometimes it’s the death of a family member or friend that first gets a sinner from a state of carelessness to a state of being awakened.

Once awakened, they are inquisitive about God, Christ, salvation, the Bible, etc. But they still aren’t ready to be converted. They have to go through an experience of deep conviction over their sin. This is when you need to talk to them about the law of God and the sins they have committed. When they see their sin and how awful it really is, when their conscience has done its work and they admit that they are hell-deserving sinners, now they see their need of the salvation that is offered in Christ Jesus.

Many people confuse convicted sinners with converted sinners but this is a fatal mistake. Just because a person feels bad over their sin doesn’t mean that they are a Christian. Preachers sometimes seem to think that the unregenerate are all careless over their sin, so if a person feels convicted this must mean they are regenerate. To the contrary. Conviction simply means that their conscience is working. It doesn’t mean that their hearts have been converted and regenerated. It doesn’t mean that they are submitted to God and obedient to Him.

Once the sinner is in a state of conviction, you must urge him to immediately repent and turn from his sins, offering to him God’s promise of forgiveness and pardon if he will simply repent. A person is not truly converted to Christ until they have forsaken all of their sins.

As you can see, it is important to recognize where the sinner is at in these stages and to deal with them accordingly. Are they careless, awakened, convicted, or converted? Every time you are witnessing or open-air preaching, think about these things and may the Spirit of God lead you with the right words to say at the right time to the right person.

Montreal Canada

Montreal was a city that I have wanted to street preach in for over ten years. I’ve preached in Ottawa, Toronto, Windsor, Winnipeg, Niagara, and elsewhere, but never Montreal. One time as a teenager I went to Montreal with some friends but didn’t do any street preaching and I’ve regretted it ever since.

The thing about Montreal is, everyone speaks French and I don’t! However, even though they strongly prefer that you street preach in French, they understand and speak English perfectly well. Besides, I think street preaching in English only helped me get more attention.

There was a busy street corner with lots of foot traffic from the subway where we started our outreach. I lifted up my voice and rebuked sin and it didn’t take very long before I got a crowd of young people and street people.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.11.01 AM

As the day went on, the crowds came and left a few times. At one point I decided to try a new location: an empty bench right next to where we were preaching. I thought maybe the added elevation would help me gather another crowd. I was right. I had only been preaching for a few minutes when a heckler came by and stood up on the bench right next to me. As he and I began to interact and dialog, a crowd in front of us started to gather.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.11.35 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.12.21 AM

All I remember about his message was that it was horrible. His evil heart was showing.

He was advocating for every type of sin you could imagine. Drugs, homosexuality, prostitution, etc.

He was so filthy and blasphemous. He said God didn’t care if we sinned, that God wanted us to sin, that God accepts us in our sins, etc.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.12.05 AM

This older man walked by and listened for a few minutes at what I was saying and then at what the heckler was saying.

He then decided to rebuke the heckler and tell the crowd that I was right.

If I remember right, he comes from a Muslim background but converted to Jesus Christ.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.13.08 AM

Eventually the city Police arrived and gave us a hard time for standing on the bench and using the amplification.

We already had a pretty full day at this point but we continued to preach for a little longer, without the bench and without the amplifier.

All in all, it was a wonderful outreach! I was so happy to be hitting the streets of Montreal with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! But I had no idea about the hard time we would soon have in this city on our next outreach there.

People often watch our youtube videos and see the opposition and hostility of sinners and then ask, “Is this really an effective way to reach people?”

The fact is, when sinners get convicted of their sins they either react in anger or in repentance. The fact that sinners get angry and hostile when we preach is actually a good sign. If unconverted sinners are apathetic when you are preaching, you might be doing something wrong.

The Gospel is effective. Asking if street preaching is effective is the wrong question. It depends on what you are street preaching. If you are street preaching the Gospel, it is effective!

I told the church, “Street preaching with the anointing of God is effective.” Praise God we see sinners convicted and come to repentance EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH. It’s amazing what God is doing and how much the Church tries to oppose Him in it!

I preached, “You know what isn’t effective? Doing nothing. If you do nothing, nothing will happen. We have to do something!”

When I was first studying the art of open-air preaching, I’d watch some VHS tapes of a couple different open-air preachers and I saw how they were surrounded by a crowd of people engaging them in questions. That is what I wanted to do in the open-air. Surrounded by a crowd of sinners asking you questions about the Bible!?! It doesn’t get any better than that!

But when I first started going out to the streets to preach, actually drawing a crowd was a very difficult task. When I first got started, drawing a crowd of 10 people for 10 minutes would have been a HUGE accomplishment! I preached nearly every day for two to three years without really drawing much of a crowd. Now, I can draw a crowd of 100-500 that stay and listen for 3-5 hours. It took practice but the strategies are very simple.

Of course, you want to spend time in prayer before you go out and ask the Lord to anoint your Words, for His Spirit to draw in listeners, etc. But there is also the practical side of things. God created us and placed us in a practical world.

First, preach on a sin you know someone will heckle you about. Homosexual, abortion, transgenderism, etc, are all perfect examples.

Second, keep preaching and hammering on the sin until a person stops and begins to heckle you about it. Remember, your target audience is those who disagree with you. You want them to voice their disagreement with you so that you can openly discuss it.

Third, engage with this heckler in dialog and debate until a crowd gathers. It won’t take very long at all. Nothing draws a crowd faster than two guys publicly arguing. Paul used to “dispute” daily in the market place and “reason” about the Scriptures. That is what we want to do.

Once a crowd gathers, you can then address everyone. You can ask the crowd if they have any questions, share your testimony, etc. And if you notice that the crowd starts to dwindle down and people are losing interest, just start back at step one again. You can repeat this process all day long and have a huge crowd the entire day!

Ottawa Canada

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.23.13 AM

I first preached downtown Ottawa in 2005 but it was very cold at night and there was a blizzard. I was happy to return this time during much better weather!

We walked around and scoped out the area to find the best spot to launch our attack against sin and settled on this bus stop area.

It was great to see the pastor of the church start the open-air preaching! I wish all pastors were good examples to their flocks when it comes to evangelism!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.24.09 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.24.21 AM

I preached second and managed to go for only a few minutes before the Police arrived.

There was a lesbian in the crowd who didn’t like our preaching. I suspect she is the one who called the Police.

All the Police asked is that we move just a little bit because we were technically on “private property” owned by the bus transit. No problem.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.24.43 AM

Just a few feet away was a great street corner to preach on. I made sure I preached underneath the city street sign, so that I couldn’t be accused of preaching on “private property.”

This area had a bus crosswalk. On one side of the street was a shopping mall and on the other were small stores. It got lots of traffic and I was able to engage some of them in dialog.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.30.32 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.31.18 AM

The lesbian who I first noticed in the crowd when we first got started, whom I could tell by the expression on her face was very upset about our preaching, apparently went and made her own sign to protest us.

We had moved around to a few different locations. Apparently she wasn’t able to find us at first but eventually found us.

She held her sign in front of us to block us from preaching. Her sign said, “My love is not wrong.”

We started to minster directly to her about her sin and we could all tell how her demeanor changed. We started to sense some conviction.

We all shared our testimonies. I used to be a drug addict and drug dealer. The pastor used to be a burglar. We both found the Lord when we were locked up. Our testimonies seemed to minister to her.

We told her that we would be praying for her. And at that point she told us her name, so that we could pray for her by name. That was a good sign… unlike her original sign!


Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 2.48.38 AM36288240_10155603362491765_4088880918163357696_n

I was honored with an opportunity to speak to the whole congregation on Sunday. I spoke on The Emotions of God. The topic was fresh in my mind because I had just published a book on that topic.

Most sinners never think about what their sins do to God. They think about how their sins affect them. Maybe they think about how their sins affect their family and friends and those around them. But they almost never think about how their sins affect God. And God is the one who is most hurt by sin! He’s been hurt by sin from the beginning! He is hurt by sin every single day!

The Bible says that God is grieved over sin. God is broken hearted over sin. God is even provoked to jealousy, wrath and anger over sin. Sin interferes with the happiness God deserves! As Christians, we should feel deep sympathy for God. We should live holy because we love Him and don’t want to displease Him. And we should seek to convert sinners from their sins because we want God to be pleased.

When we returned to downtown Montreal we found a slightly different street corner to preach on this time. It was nearby where we preached the first time. It also had lots of foot traffic from the subway and the crosswalks.

The acoustics were especially nice at this location. My voice, without any amplifier, was booming off the buildings very nicely for everyone to hear me loud and clear.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.13.42 AM

One group of men walking by was a bachelor party. The men who was getting married was wearing a wedding dress. He was just goofing around. Nevertheless, I rebuked it as an abomination. As hard as my rebukes were, they were still a friendly bunch towards me. They were obviously excited and happy about the upcoming wedding.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.14.28 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.14.59 AM

I had a very nasty heckler come up and start screaming and yelling at me, bumping into me, trying to bump me off the soap box, etc.

To this day I am still unsure if this was a man who looked like a woman, or a woman who looked like a man. It was a transgender person. That much I do know. And it was not very happy with my preaching!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.15.56 AM

This man also came up to me and heard only a little bit of what I was preaching and immediately was super intense and wanted to get violent. The Police at this point started to arrive and to listen to the preaching, so this man held back the violence he obviously wanted to engage it. His muscles were all tense and he told me that he wanted to beat me “so bad.” He was upset that I was calling homosexuals to repentance.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.16.32 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.16.55 AM

The Officer who first arrived stayed behind on the sidelines for a few minutes to watch what was going on. Hecklers in the crowd at that point were falsely accusing me of “hate speech,” or for saying that certain people should be put to death – something I never said. They were just trying to get me in trouble with Canadian Hate Speech laws, which I’ve been familiar with for years. I do not advocate for the execution of homosexuals, which is forbidden to advocate for in Canada. I simply warn homosexuals of God’s judgment, like I do all sinners, and call them to repentance, like I do all sinners. I don’t discriminate in my preaching as I call all sinners to repentance equally, offering salvation to all men equally.

Eventually the Police Officer pulled me aside to talk with me. He was particular upset that I was an American and that I came to “his city” to do this. I explained to him that it isn’t just his city that I do this in. I do this all over the world. It’s just who I am and what I do.

Unfortunately, a brother on the team got stirred up during all of this and started preaching extremely loudly while I was trying to talk with the Police Officer on the side. The Officer pointed at him and said to me, “Don’t you think that is unreasonable noise?” I said, “That’s debatable.” (He had no amplification and he was competing with the noise of the cars and trucks). Apparently I gave the wrong answer so he wrote me a ticket for “unreasonable noise.” I should have told the Officer, “I’ll tell him to tone it down” and maybe he wouldn’t have written the ticket. The ticket was around $100 I think. But another brother on the team took my ticket and said he would pay it for me, which was a huge blessing.

All in all, this mission trip to Canada was a huge success! The church was stirred up for the work of evangelism and thousands of people heard the Gospel out in the streets! Canada needs Jesus and I was happy to offer Him to them!

A lot of people find our open-air preaching videos to be both educational and entertaining. And people from all over the world have told me that they repented and got saved because of these videos! Praise God!



Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!

People often ask, “Does anyone actually come to the Lord through this type of ministry?” Yes! All the time! I get message after message every single month from people all over the world telling me how they repented of their sins and turned to the Lord because of our street preaching. I share testimony after testimony in each of my newsletters!

Here are just a few more recent testimonies. Please PRAY for these people! 

Hello brother Jesse my name is Joshua , I am 23 years old living in California and I wanted to reach out to you for advice pertaining to the bible and the steps on how to be saved. I’ve repented of some sins such as smoking, fornication, and drinking. I really want to escape all sins because I feel guilty inside and I know right from wrong in my conscious. I just want to follow God and live holy for him. I didn’t have a father growing up and from watching your preaching videos on youtube for about a few months now, I was instantly drawn to the word but not showing my works. Slowly I started to understand God’s word from your own preaching and just yesterday, Wenesday September 5th, I have decided to repent of those sins listed above.


“I have been listening to you for a while and you preaching and listening and watching your videos have brought me closer to God” Randall




Brethren, again I urge you, please pray for these people! God is on the move. Lives are being changed and transformed! But we need to be diligent to preach the Gospel and pray for lost souls!

How to Convict Sinners & Convert them to Christ! Free Street Preacher Training!


Follow us on social media:



Mission Trip to College Station, TX

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.42.48 AM

I was blessed with an opportunity to speak to a small Christian group in College Station, TX.

I lectured twice Saturday afternoon.

The first lecture was “Preach Free Will  to Convict Sinners and Destroy their Excuses.”

And the second was “‘God Alone Saves’ is not Biblical | Evangelism is Synergism.”

Then Saturday night we headed out to the local bar scene to pick a fight with the devil and win some souls!

Saturday Afternoon Session Lectures

The Apostle Paul said that sinners are “without excuse” before God (Romans 1:20).

The favorite excuses of sinners is, “I couldn’t help it. I can’t obey God. His requirements are too hard for me.”

The Bible says the exact opposite.

The Scripture says God does not require that which is too hard (Deut. 30:11).

And it says that our obligation is always proportionate to the ability that we have (Matt. 22:37; 1 Cor. 10:13).

Charles Finney, the great American Revivalist, said that the first duty of a preacher is to destroy the sinner’s excuses.

When we seek to win souls to Christ, we must start by showing them that it is their sin that is unreasonable, not God’s law. 

God’s law was perfectly reasonable and yet we choose by our free will to break it anyways. 

God sets before us the choice between good and evil (Deut. 11:26-28; Deut. 30:19; Josh. 24:15; Jer. 21:8), so we alone are to blame for our sins.

That is why we desperately need salvation through Jesus Christ – because we broke God’s law when we didn’t have to. 

It is when the sinner is left in a position where he sees that he is “without excuse” for his sins that he gives up trying to justify and excuse them and he begins to seek merciful forgiveness and gracious pardon from God through Jesus Christ. 


Someone made this comment on Facebook:

“The Holy Spirit is the one that convicts us of righteousness not any preacher” 

Actually, it’s both. 


Jhn 16:8 – And when he is come, he will reprove [ἐλέγχω – to convict] the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 


Luk 3:19 – But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved [ἐλέγχω – to convict] by him for Herodias his brother Philip’s wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done

Eph 5:11 – And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [ἐλέγχω – to convict] them.

1Ti 5:20 – Them that sin rebuke [ἐλέγχω – to convict] before all, that others also may fear.

2Ti 4:2 – Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove [ἐλέγχω – to convict], rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Tit 1:9 – Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince [ἐλέγχω – to convict] the gainsayers.

Tit 1:13 – This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke [ἐλέγχω – to convict] them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

Tit 2:15 – These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke [ἐλέγχω – to convict] with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Biblically, it is the Holy Spirits job AND the preachers job to convict sinners of their sins.

And the biblical support for the preachers to do it is technically greater, as there are 7 verses that support preachers convicting sinners and only 1 verse for the Holy Spirit…

Just saying…


The Calvinist cliché, “I can’t save anyone. Only God can save” is not biblically accurate.

The Bible says, “Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins” (James 5:20); and also “For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.” (1 Cor. 4:15).

And so the Preacher of the Word can and does save souls – with the help of the Holy Spirit and by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In Acts Peter even commanded the crowd to “Save Yourselves…” So not only do preachers save souls, but sinners save themselves! And how did they do it? Well, as Peter said, they must repent and believe. That is how a sinner saves his soul – by turning to Christ. William Booth and the Salvation Army used to fly a banner outside of their meeting house that said, “SAVE YOUR SOULS!”

The salvation of a soul is not a monergistic work of God, where God the Father alone (mono) is active. The Holy Spirit has a role, the Word has a role, the preacher of the Word has a role, and the sinner himself has a role.

Charles Finney said, “Both conversion and regeneration are sometimes in the Bible ascribed to God, sometimes to man, and sometimes to the subject.”

It is this understanding that gives evangelism its urgency and elevates its work to extreme and eternal importance. There are souls right now that might be saved by your labors who also might be damned by your neglect! What we do now affects and determines the future – even the eternal destiny of souls.

In light of the biblical doctrines of synergism and the openness of the future, we can see the vitalness of us fulfilling the Great Commission and feel the heavy weight of responsibility to seek and save those who are lost!

So get out there Christian! Preach the Word and save some souls!

Saturday Night Outreach



We started the nighttime outreach in the bar and club district using my new speaker system. 

I used to use speakers all the time when I first started street preaching 17 years ago.

I always enjoyed using a microphone for the preacher and a microphone for the audience to use to ask questions and engage in dialog.

The first question that was asked was, “If Jesus died for everyone, everyone is already saved, so why are you out evangelizing.” 

I explained how the atonement automatically and unconditionally saves nobody.

The sacrifice of Christ makes salvation available to everyone but they must meet the conditions of gracious pardon by repenting of their sins and trusting in Christ. 

I urge sinners to repent of their sins and believe the gospel because these are the conditions of receiving forgiveness through the atonement of Christ. 

 The Bible says in Hebrews 10:26-31 that if you continue in sin after receiving the knowledge of the atonement, you are trampling the blood of Christ underfoot and will receive “sorer punishment” than those who merely sinned against the law.

Evidently, the atonement did not make your punishment impossible. To the contrary, it made forgiveness possible but you must not continue in sin. 


I think one of the bars called the Police. When the Police arrived, they were very nice and friendly but said that we needed a permit for the speaker.

I had heard that the clubs and bars were able to play music outside without a permit so long as they kept their volume under a certain decibel level. The Police said that was true but that that was for the clubs. 

I didn’t believe that the clubs were subjected to a different set of laws than the rest of the public, so while I put the speaker system away for the night, I did email the City Hall to inquire about their noise ordinance.

Sure enough, I was told, “He has to keep his amplified sound below 63 decibels.” 

In the future, I will just keep my decibel level below the requirement and I should be fine. I’ll even buy a decibel reading online to make sure I meet this requirement. 



Without the speaker system, we moved closer to the bars and clubs and engaged with many people. 

Conviction was in the air and we had some great conversations on the sidelines while we all took turns open air preaching.

Good crowds gathered throughout the night. 


I wanted to buy something on the Texas craigslist and was emailing back and forth with this guy, not suspecting anything at first, until there were a few subtle red flags and then the request for “bank transfer of funds.”

Once I realized it was a scam I emailed him and said, “This is a scam. You need to repent of your sins because judgment day is coming.”

He never responded.

About an hour later, still thinking about it, I wanted to email him again just to hammer the point. I said, “Have you ever thought that you will have to stand before God to answer for all of the sins you’ve ever committed in your life?”

My daughter was playing on my phone and when it rang, she thought it was her mom. But it turned out to be the scammer! It said he was calling from Long Island. When I asked where he was from, I said, “What are you from the Philippines or something? (because when I face booked his name a bunch of Filipinos came up)” He said, “No, I’m from Long Island.” (Probably one of those temporary prepaid phones).

He called me to ask that I stop “texting him.” He had a foreign accent. I said, “It’s actually called email, not texting. But you need to repent of your sins. God is going to judge your life. You’re scamming people. You’re hurting people. You could have a legitimate business.”

He said, “Oh yeah?” He seemed interested in hearing more about how to have a legitimate business. I said, “Yeah. You could have a legitimate business, doing the exact opposite of what you are doing. See you’re hurting people. If you would help people, you could have a business. Business is all about helping people.”

He said, “You’re right. You’re right.” I went on, “Then you’d have peace with God, peace with your conscience, you could sleep well at night. So you need to repent of your sins and get right with God.”

Something happened where I couldn’t hear him anymore so I hung up. I gave my phone back to my daughter and then he started calling back again. But I decided not to answer it. Pray that he does repent.

How to Weaken Temptation & Live Holy for Jesus!


Follow us on social media:





There are some wonderful brethren in Canada who have invited me up to their area twice now for open-air ministry.

They have been greatly influenced and impacted by our ministry and want to reach out to their local area. 

I often say in my videos, “All it takes to bring me out to your area is a plane ticket and a couch to sleep on and we can minister together in your area.” 

We reached THOUSANDS of people with the Gospel during this mission trip.

Read the amazing report below! 

Niagara Falls, Canada

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.48.53 AM

Our first outreach was to Niagara Falls Canada. 

Thousands of tourist from ALL OVER THE WORLD come to this site every single day.

What a perfect location to reach the masses! 

I found a blue cement block that worked perfectly as a soap box. 

This area was a “bottle neck” where everyone walking by went through, so it was perfect for open-air preaching.

A nice couple from Toronto walked by, stopped, and listened.

They seemed genuinely interested in my message.

I felt led to hammer home the point, “You are as close to God as you want to be.” 

The Lord seemed to be ministering to the two of them together.

After a little while of preaching on the blue block, a Niagara Park Police Officer showed up and said I couldn’t stand on the cement block. 

She said that the park had a rule against “climbing on structures,” and it was near the street which she thought was “dangerous” if I feel off. 

I perceived that she was very irritated with the preaching and was trying to just give me a hard time. The team wondered if she might be a lesbian. 

I moved to a new location and found a park bench there. I thought that standing on the bench was reasonable, as this is common for street preaching and it was made to hold people, but she told me I couldn’t stand on the bench either. 


From my past experience I have found that whenever the authorities move you from a street preaching location, the location you end up moving to ends up being better than the first!

This has been my experience time and time again.

I eventually moved down the road to a busy crosswalk that seemed to get a lot of foot traffic.

After open air preaching maybe 30 minutes, a very large crowd showed up. They were a tour group from a high school. 

As I preached against sin, the large crowd circled around me. They began engaging me in questions. 

I was able to answer their questions and point them to Jesus. They certainly were not learning about Jesus and the Bible in their public school! 

Their High School leaders didn’t seem happy that they were listening to a street preacher but couldn’t help it. One of their leaders was a homosexual man.

If I was rapping on the streets about drugs and violence, I don’t think their leaders would have minded. But I was preaching about Jesus and this worried them. 

But this turned out to be the best part of the outreach! I got to clearly preach against sin, call them to repentance, and point them to Jesus! 

Hamilton Canada


Hamilton was a city I had never street preached in before.

When we arrived we checked out downtown to find the best location to preach.

The best location was the corner of King and James St, which I thought was ironic because together it made “King James.”

So with our King James Bibles, we lifted up our banners and preached the Gospel! 


It wasn’t long before people started to approach us to talk about the Lord.

This is the reason we have big banners and bold Christian t-shirts. It lets everyone know we are there, why we are there, and that they can approach us to talk about the Lord.

Critics often say that these signs and t-shirts are going to “push people away” but we see the opposite effect. It pulls people in!

The most awkward moment about one-on-one witnessing is when you approach a total stranger to talk to them about the Lord.

This awkwardness is totally removed when you use big banners and bold t-shirts because total strangers will then approach you to ask questions about the Lord! 

You couldn’t ask for anything better than that! 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.48.45 AM

The first thing I noticed about downtown Hamilton was that it was infested with drugs.

Homeless drug addicts were everywhere. 

This is the perfect place to minister the Gospel!

Often those who need the Gospel the most, hear it the lest!

I was saved out of drugs and alcohol when a preacher came to my prison and preached.


As I preached, a man walked by who was very animated in his movements.

He talked with his hands and his feet! 

I immediately suspected he was high on something like Meth. 

One of the people watching on YouTube said this guy was on “Bath salts.”

The effect of “bath salts” is that people contort their bodies and walk very strange. 

Whatever he was high on, he was able to engage me in a dialog for a long time.

I started suspending he might be demon possessed too because of some of the vile blasphemies he said, especially about Jesus. 

We were able to plant some good “truth seeds” into His mind that the Lord will continue to work to lead him to repentance. 

Pride Event in Dunnville Canada


The “main event” that the brethren brought me up to Canada for was a “Pride” event in Dunnville. 

The Bible says that pride goes before destruction (Prov. 16:18), so we preached that Dunnville needs to humble itself before God. 

The year prior the brethren had me come up for this event and while there, a sinner stole my sign.

This year, we invited back up. Ruben Israel came in from Los Angeles and a large team from Toronto came in. 

We had lots of Gospel Banners this year!

With the protection of the local Police, we were able to set up our banners right next to the main stage and preach the Gospel. 

Toronto Anime Event


Across America are “ComicCon” events which are very popular for the Comic subculture.

People attend, often dressed up like their favorite comic hero. 

Like ComicCon, there are also “Anime” events for cartoons. 

Again, people dress up like their favorite characters.

Toronto just so happened to be hosting a very large Anime event the weekend we were around.

There also just so happened to be a public street and sidewalk right in front of the convention center!

This was a perfect spot for us to lift up our banners and our voices for the Lord! 



Crowds of people were everywhere!

Since we already had lots of street preachers covering the main entrance, I decided to take a few brethren off to the side to another great area.

Across the street was an open grassy area with lots of foot traffic and people hanging around.

It didn’t take long of preaching there before we were surrounded by some interesting characters! 



Our crowd became so large that a local drummer who was performing on the sidewalk nearby became jealous!

He picked up his drums and positioned himself right next to me in front of the crowd, banging his drums! 

It’s a good thing we brought our bullhorns, otherwise the crowd would never have been able to hear my preaching with that drum going!


Our message was simple.

Sin leads to hell.

Jesus died for our sins.

God is calling all men everywhere to repent. 

If you repent of your sins, you can be forgive by the grace and mercy of God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.49.07 AM

The Toronto Police were great to work with but the private event security gave us as much of a hard time as they could. 

They claimed ownership of the grass I was standing on and made me move to the nearby sidewalk. 

I moved around a few times but managed to draw a nice crowd everywhere that I went. 


Eventually I rejoined the team at the main location at the front door. 

A large crowd had surrounded the team and we ministered to them for a few hours. 

Only one man tried to steal my amplifier but was unsuccessful. 

The Gospel preaching continued no matter what! 

Niagara Falls Canada Again 


We ended our mission trip with another great outreach to Niagara Falls. 

The first outreach to this location, I was the other street preacher.

But by the end of the trip, the team had grown so we wanted to return again. 

There was a perfect area for a street preacher to stand and preach, on some raised stairs.

Somebody must have called the Police because they showed up, talked briefly with us, watched us for a while, and eventually left saying, “You aren’t doing or saying anything that I wouldn’t be comfortable having my children around.” 

We continued to preach the rest of the day without problem! 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 3.49.13 AM

I returned to the same busy crosswalk I preached at before. 

Two men saw me preaching and came up to me and said,”Brother Jesse! We watch you on Youtube!”

I said, “Wow, where are you from?”

They said, “India!”


Someone recently commented on my Youtube channel, “Greetings from Indonesia!” 

We are literally reaching the NATIONS with the Gospel! 



You weaken or strengthen every temptation by either resisting it or feeding it. 

The Bible says resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7).

After Jesus resisted the temptations of the devil, the devil went away (Matt. 4:11).

The thing about temptations is this:

resist them and they go away.

As a new convert, I still had to resist temptations for drugs and alcohol.

After 18 years, those aren’t temptations anymore.

Actually, after 4-5 years, once I was out of my teenage years and very active as a street preacher, those things were not tempting anymore at all.

The reverse is also true. The more you give into temptation, the stronger its pull and hold on you.

Temptations grow stronger if you feed them.

Given this principle about temptations, that if you resist them they go away and eventually aren’t even tempting anymore, I can conceive of attaining to a state where you aren’t really tempted much anymore.

If you habitually and continually say no to all temptations, I suppose eventually sin of any kind will no longer be tempting. 

It’s always possible to sin because God created us with free will, but if we overcome temptations in this life, we definitely won’t be sinning in heaven. 

The more you see sin for what it really is, Satan for who he is, and the more you love and trust God, the easier it is to overcome the temptations of the devil and obey the Lord.

Temptation to sin is especially weakened when you see sin for what it really is – a cancerous poison that is trying to hurt and ruin you.

It is ultimate by faith that we overcome temptation (1 John 5:4), trusting that God has our best interest at heart and satan is trying to damn our souls. 

It becomes easier to obey God when you understand His requirements are good for you and that Satan is trying to hurt you through sin.

Adam and Eve sinned because they distrusted God and trusted in Satan instead. 

Trust in God, not Satan.

Then you will obey God, not Satan. 



Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!

The most exciting thing in the world, next to knowing God, is leading people to Jesus.

And the next best thing after leading people to Jesus, is raising up other witnesses to labor in the harvest field! 

I praise God that our ministry has been seeing people just recently come to the Lord out of Atheism, Islam, Homosexuality, Lukewarmness, Drugs, etc. 

I’ve been so blessed that our ministry has been in a season of harvest lately, after many years of plowing, in which we have been seeing every month many souls coming to the Lord and many Christians raised up for the work of soul winning! 


“I have been so blessed by your work and videos. I play them at home hoping my son will repent and turn to Christ. Thank you for all that you do!” Lisa



Somebody recently messaged me and told me, “I saw you on Netflix!” Apparently there is a documentary on Netflix about “Gay Rights” that shows me street preaching outside of the Supreme Court when they were ruling on “homosexual marriage.” I was wearing my “God Hates Sin” t-shirt.

I know clips of me from that outreach in Washington D.C. also appeared on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart and Colbert.

It’s awesome when you reach the secular world with biblical truth through secular media! 


“God blessed me through your ministry to continue being bold to preach the Gospel and not to be afraid to call sin for what it is. Through your preaching God has reminded me to continue being mindful of the aproval of God and not the aproval of man. The way you preach is necessary because it takes God’s commands seriously, as He has chosen the foolishness of preaching.” ~ Gerhard 







My inbox is not a stranger to “hate mail” from sinners and critics so it is nice when I receive some kind words of encouragement for our ministry. 

Brother Jesse. You been a blessing to me and my family. We so enjoy your street preaching especially your sermons. You have a way of explain things in a way that can be easily understood. Thank you for being bold and courageous . The fruits of the spirit are clearly seen in your character. God bless you and your family.” Lourdes

“I just want to say your street preaching is awesome. This is the boldness the church needs today. They don’t want us saying certain things because it could be offensive to people. I want to save lives not just hear eloquent speeches. You preach how John the baptist and Jesus preached. Repent ! And turn from your wicked ways. I will help support you..” Cotillion







This man is a Canadian who said he started street preaching EVERY DAY, starting a couple years ago, after watching our YouTube videos!!!!

I never even knew!

He said he found his calling!

Lord, send forth more laborers into the harvest field!

Church History Documentary| The Free Will Debate | Augustine vs. Pelagius | Gnostics vs Early Church


This is one of the most important documentaries I have ever made.

It’s a theological film about church history.

Did Augustine corrupt the church with Gnostic doctrine?

That’s a very important question!





A lot of people don’t realize that the Early Church Fathers debated the Gnostics on the topic of free will.

The Gnostics taught that man’s nature was sinful and corrupt and that man had no ability to do good.

In contradiction to the Gnostics, the Early Church Fathers (the disciples of the Apostles like Polycarp and Ignatius) taught that man is responsible and accountable for His actions because God has created us with a free will to choose between good and evil.

All of the Early Church Fathers, for the first three to four hundred years of Christianity, taught the doctrine of free will.

It wasn’t until Augustine “converted” to Christianity out of Gnosticism (Manicheanism) that this anti-free-will theology found its way into the Church.

Augustine’s denial of free will was a radical change in Christian theology and it was Augustine’s writings who influenced Martin Luther and John Calvin, who also both denied free will.

Can it be shown from historical sources that Augustine actually corrupted church theology with Gnostic doctrine?


Beyond Augustine

Did Augustine Corrupt the Church

with Gnostic Doctrine?

The Story of a Street Preacher | Open Air Preaching Documentary Movie Films


Hi Everyone!

I have three documentary films I wanted to share with you that I prayed would inspire and encourage the body of Christ in the task of soul winning!

The first one is only 7 minutes long and is called: 


This one really explains why we should street preach despite any and all opposition.

Over the years I’ve been punched, kicked, spit on, falsely arrested, etc. Yet every month souls continue to come to the Lord.

But even if I didn’t see the fruit, I’d still do it because God told us to do it and it’s the right thing to do.

The second one is 15 minutes long and is called: 

A Documentary on Open Air Preacher Jesse Morrell & The Morrell Family

This one shows you more about my background and family and more of what we do on the streets.

The third one is 4 1/2 hours long and is called:

Street Preaching with Unction & Anointing from the Holy Ghost | How Open Air Preaching Should Be

That one is a few hours of evangelistic goodness. It’s full of inspiration, evangelism, and Christian apologetics to learn from.

When I was first starting out on the streets witnessing, I wish I had hours of videos to learn from. There were ZERO videos online to learn from. I did manage to find two VHS tapes to watch but that was it.

I learn by watching and then by doing.

I have a heart to help raise up an army of street preachers to take the gospel to the streets all over America and call America back to God.

For that reason, I started my YouTube channel OpenAirOutreach to inspire other believers to be a bold witness for the Lord.

When Youtube first came out, I was the first one to start uploading Street Preaching videos in 2005.

Now, my channel is the largest online library of open air preaching videos on the internet! 

I wanted to give believers a large archive to watch and learn from!

I know the Cure for Cancer! And it’s FREE!


Follow us on social media:



Texas A&M, College Station

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.17.58 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.18.29 AM

Texas A&M is a wide open campus with tens of thousands of students. You can walk on to this campus and start preaching without any problems. That isn’t true for every campus in Texas.

Texas A&M also has a lot of professing Christians on campus. Some are genuine believers, of course, and some are not. But we do find support for our open-air ministry from at least some of the Christians on campus. That is great because they can continue the work after we are gone.

It was rainy while we were on campus but it didn’t rain consistently. It stopped for most of the time we were there. I started off by engaged the homosexuals and lesbians on campus. There is a group of them that remembers me from years past. It’s great to have a continual influence into their lives.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.19.48 AM

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.19.08 AM

This is a great campus for Christian Apologetics because the crowd is engaging but not hostile. They gather around and listen, ask questions, heckle, etc. That is really the ideal for open-air preaching. We don’t like the hostility or violence that we sometimes are met with. We want good interaction with unbelievers.

A sin I preach against on every campus is sexual promiscuity. It is really damaging and destroying our country. I preached, “1 in 3 college students has an STD. You are more likely to graduate with an STD than a PHD!” I went on to expose the foolishness of sin and to explain the wisdom of God. My strategy is to open their eyes as to the stupidity of sin and to the goodness of God, to help turn them in repentance from sin to God. After all, it is the truth that can set them free!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.21.56 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.20.33 AM

We preached into the nighttime during one of our days on campus. Somehow the topic of cancer came up. A student mentioned it, so I said, “I happen to know the cure for cancer.” This made the students interested. I said, “Really, I do know the cure for cancer. And it’s FREE!

I explained, “I am not a medical doctor but I have studied this topic a lot. A 21-40 day water only fast has been medically shown to kill cancer. Your normal cells can survive a prolonged water fast but cancer cells simply cannot survive under such conditions. Fasting starves the cancer but not the body. The body doesn’t actually starve until around 45 days of fasting. If I were ever diagnosed with cancer, the first thing I would do is a 21-40 day fast. After that, I’d break the fast with healthy juices like carrot juice, and maintain a healthy diet with regular fasting.” I then went on to explain other health benefits of fasting like lowering cholesterol, preventing heart attack and heart disease, curing auto-immune disease, healing inflammation and fatigue, etc.

One student in particular was impressed with my knowledge of fasting and its health benefits. He listened to the preaching for a long time and then shook my hand afterwards. I guess that means he learned something he was grateful for.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.23.05 AM

My primary message on campus was about Sin & the Savior. Everything else is a side topic from the main issues. As America drifts further and further into sin and wickedness, we must preach louder and louder the warning about Judgment Day. I wish every campus in America had a voice calling out to them to repent! Praise that God raises up a voice on every campus across the country!

The Nightlife of College Station, TX

Since College Station is a College town with tens of thousands of college students, it also has a bar and club district to service the party scene. What is great is that we not only preach to the students during the day, but we get to preach to them at night as well! They just can’t get away from the message of the Gospel!


One of the brothers who joined me on this trip is named Sebastian. He came to two of our evangelism conferences in the past. He was the first brother to start open-air preaching and he got a nice group of people to stop and engage him. He is a very animated and lively preacher! That is essential for a street preacher who wants people to stop and listen!



As the night progressed we moved to another location that had more people, just a little bit down the way from where we started. This location is where a lot of the bars and clubs are. You can stand right in front of them on this busy street and preach the Gospel.

What’s great about preaching outside the bars and clubs is that you catch them in the very act of sin! It is easier to convict them of their sin that way. And you know exactly what sins to preach against!

While I was preaching there was one sinner who came up and started dancing like a fool. He was trying to entertain the crowd, get attention, and make light of what was going on. But another student that night recognized me from Youtube. He seemed very convicted of his sin. I ministered to him for a bit before he left with his friends. This showed the diverse response you get out there. One man dances like a fool while another man is heavily convicted. But even the man who was dancing like a fool saw us later and became very angry. That too showed that he was convicted.

Most sinners start out as careless but as we continue to minister to them, they start to enter into conviction. Anger is their usual response to conviction.


My friend Jonathon shared the soap box with me as well. He does ministry on the campus and has a big heart for outreach and evangelism. Pray for him please. He does regular outreach to this nightlife now and he has a good team that goes with him, including his pastor. It’s great when you have a supportive church and pastor. Every church should have an evangelism team that goes out faithfully!


Towards the end of the night we moved again to a quieter location to get away from some loud music. This was a high foot traffic area. It also had a wide open space for a crowd to gather. That made it an ideal location. Since it was quieter at this location, everyone could hear us loud and clear as we urged them to repent and believe the Gospel.




I remember so well how the Holy Spirit came to me in my prison cell, 18 years ago, and ripped the blinders off my eyes. For the first time, I saw myself as I really was – a rotten filthy hell-deserving sinner. I was dark, I was sinful, I was selfish, I was hateful, I was evil.

He ripped away from me all my excuses and showed me how I was responsible for my actions. I had no one to blame but myself, as I was making my own choices and all shifts of blame were falsehoods. I saw how wicked and evil I had grown to become and He convinced me that God would be completely justified in damning my soul forever.

And He didn’t relieve the weight of my guilt and conviction. He left me to roast in the oven of conviction for a few more months to prepare me for the gospel. I tossed and turned tormented inside that I was damned and I knew no hope or way of escape. He left me in conviction until I came to the point of genuine repentance – where I didn’t want to be a sinner anymore – and showed me through the Scriptures how I could be forgiven through Christ.

The problem with most evangelism today is that it doesn’t seek to convince the sinner of his exceeding sinfulness – that he is fully responsible for his sinful condition and that his eternal damnation would be justified and right. Modern evangelism just wants the sinner to briefly acknowledge that he has sinned and then immediately trust in Christ for salvation when there is no deep conviction or deep repentance. This is the reason for so many false converts in Christianity today.

In order to have a revival in America, we must see sinners crushed with the conviction of sin, to roast by the Holy Ghost in their guilt and deservingness of damnation. That is the proper preparation of the heart for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Then we will see sinners abandon their sinning and cling to Christ for salvation, to flee from the wrath that’s to come.





This is a picture a friend of mine took while he was vacationing at the beach. He was reading “The Atonement” by Albert Barnes, a classic Christian book that I reprinted in my bookstore.

Albert Barnes said, “His sufferings were in the place of the penalty, not the penalty itself. They were a substitution for the penalty, and were, therefore, strictly and properly vicarious, and were not the identical sufferings which the sinner would himself have endured.” He also said, “The atonement is something substituted in the place of the penalty of the law, which will answer the same ends as the punishment of the offender himself would. It is instead of punishment. It is something which will make it proper for the lawgiver to suspend or remit the literal execution of the penalty of the law, because the object or end of that penalty has been secured, or because something has been substituted for that which will answer the same purpose.”



Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!

” I used Jesse’s advice recently and our street preaching event went very smoothly when the police were called.” David

“Hi Jesse, thank you for your very hard work that you are preaching the Gospel! It is so inspiring me and I want to do hard work for Christ too. Your life for Christ shows an example of how real Christians should live with passion for Christ to save souls! Bless you!” Igor

“been watching your videos for days… Because of you guys I quit smoking weed… I was a hypocrite and I was lukewarm but God showed me he was going to spit me out and now I’ve been on the straight and narrow..I didn’t believe that I could quit sinning until I read bible verse be ye holy for I am holy..best decision I’ve ever made in my life.. I spend most of my days reading the Bible and watching street preaching videos because that’s where I feel I need to be I greatly appreciate you guys and in this day and age in this generation with their stubbornness and hard hearts you have to come at them the way you do with the truth it’s the hard truth but that’s how they need to hear it because of they’re stubborn hearts” Tina


December is usually a hard and difficult month for us as our financially support usually slows down this time of year, so please remember us and our missionary work this time of year. Thanks!

Question: Why did God Create the Devil?


Follow us on social media:



I was blessed with an opportunity to travel to Kentucky and minister with another brother on campuses in that area. He’s a younger brother who has been watching the YouTube videos for a long time and attended our Street Preachers Conference. He wanted me to come and minister along side him so he got me a plane ticket and let me stay at his house. We had a great week of ministry.

Marshall University, West Virginia

Marshall University was the first campus we went to. I had never preached on this campus before but had heard about this campus through a movie, about how their football team once died in a plane crash.

The foot traffic was pretty slow but I found a location I thought would be best. It was a a wall in the middle of a sidewalk. I began by warning the students about Judgment Day. A student grabbed his saxophone and began playing it next to me. This only helped my cause by creating more of a scene. Eventually a campus Police Officer came and told me to get off the wall. That was OK because I had another location in mind.

I moved over to the grassy right next to where I had been standing. There was a great staircase that I envisioned students sitting down on. It looked like it could work as an amphitheater type set up. As you can see from the pictures above, my plan worked. The location was barren and empty when I started preaching but by hammering on the right topics, I was able to attract an interesting crowd after preaching maybe twenty minutes.

The crowd stayed for a couple hours as we preached. It literally started to RAIN and HAIL as we were preaching but still the crowd didn’t move! There were times that I was freezing even with my winter coat on and there were students out there with shorts and t-shirts and they still didn’t leave! They were captivated by the message!

There was one assistant professor on campus who dressed in all black. Her style was gothic. She had satanic symbols that she wore also. I had heard about her before we went to campus. She heckled my friend in the past. He warned me she might be there. But when I met her, she was very friendly. In fact, she said she already knew me very well from Youtube. She even asked for my autograph! I thought to myself, “Wow! Here is a satanic gothic assistant professor, who I have never met before, on a campus I have never preached before, and I have already had an impact in her life because she has listened to my Youtube videos!” What an amazing era we live in!

The University of Kentucky in Lexington is a special campus for me, though I have only preached there once before, because when I was first studying the art and science of open-air preaching I watched an old VHS tape of a campus preacher on this campus. I learned a lot from that video. I never thought that I would travel to Kentucky and preach on that campus myself but praise God that he has taken me all over the country with the Gospel.

The student union building was been under construction. It was behind the student union building that we normally preached. That location wasn’t ideal but it still worked. Since the construction was going on, we had to find a new location to preach. This open area that we preached in was perfect – much better than the other location I had preached in the past.

We had great interaction with the students for many hours. One student who walked by was the daughter of a local pastor. That pastor called me up on the phone and asked if I was around. We had already left campus by that time but he said that he would like to join me that next time I return to campus. He has teamed up with other traveling campus preachers in the past and does a great job of campus ministry himself there every week.

Morehead State University, Kentucky 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.49.04 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.49.54 AM

Morehead State is another special campus for me because again, when I was first studying the art and science of open-air preaching 16 years ago, I watched a VHS tape of a brother preaching on this campus.

The usual “free speech zone” of this campus isn’t the best. It is a little off the beaten path. So the team I was with usually preached at a very busy sidewalk. That location was a little too small for the crowd I was expecting, but right next to it was a great area that looked to me like an amphitheater. It had walls for the students to sit on and a nice shady tree for me to preach under. It was a warm day so I was thankful for the tree. When you are in the sun for 5 hours, it can really zap the energy out of you. I was grateful for the shade.

We covered a lot of topics during the many hours we were on campus. One of the students asked me, “If God is good, why did He create the devil?” I said, “God didn’t create the devil. An angel named Lucifer did. God created an angel named Lucifer who then made the choice to be a devil.”

This is an important issue for everyone to understand. God is not the author of evil. Sin is a personal choice that a free moral agent makes. God created us with a free will, capable of choosing between good and evil. Each individual is responsible for their own choice. We choose to be good or evil. That is why there is a Judgment Day, in which the universe will be held justly responsible. What God created was good. Any evil found in the universe is our own creation.

University of Louisville, Kentucky 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.59.46 AM

University of Louisville is a campus I have preached on maybe three times already. I don’t care for their “free speech area” which is off the path a little bit and is already roped off. But it gets the job done. There is a busy sidewalk right in front of you and students gather on it to listen. And the ropes do help to keep the crowd back.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 2.00.30 AM

Something I always stress on campus is that “God has given you a free will. You are who you choose to be. You are responsible for who you are.” We were made in the image of God. God is a creator. We also create – we make choices. We shape the world around us. We form our own moral character.

One of the great needs of this generation is to take personal responsibility for their actions. It is easier to blame other people for your own bad choices but this doesn’t actually help anybody.

It was 18 years ago when I was in a prison cell that I was convicted by the Holy Spirit and He opened my eyes to show me just how evil of a sinner I had made myself. He explained to me, “You are who you choose to be” and “life is what you make it.” It was at that moment, at the age of 15 years old, that I stopped blaming everyone else for my own bad choices (Everyone has hurts and pains in life. Everyone is a victim of someone else some how. But that doesn’t justify your own criminality). And I took personal responsibility for my sins and my life.

True conversion starts with real confession and deep repentance – both of which involve taking personal responsibility for your sinful choices.

Northern Kentucky University

This campus has a very large amphitheater that we’ve never had any problems filling up with students. But by the time we got started it was later in the day. And I believe it was a Friday afternoon, which is usually very dead on a campus. The first location that we tried, which was the amphitheater, didn’t work out. So we moved right in front of the student union where there were some students hanging out.

One of the arguments that a student made was that “truth is relative!” I said, “An insane asylum presupposes objective reality – that truth is absolute. If truth is relative, insanity doesn’t exist!”

This is my friend Chad. He’s been preaching for a good amount of time now and I believe was first inspired to this type of ministry through YouTube videos. He did a good job taking their questions and giving them biblical answers. He joins me on a lot of campuses when I am in the area. It is always a great pleasure to link up with like-minded brethren across the country.

Thunder over Louisville, Kentucky 

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.54.05 AM

Thunder over Louisville is a big event in the city of Louisville. Its a big celebration with lots of venders, families, and revelers. In the picture above, you can see my host Zachary being confronted by an angry sinner. The sinner eventually moved on and we kept preaching. Resist the devil, the Bible says, and he will flee from you!


At one location where we were preaching, a group of women started chanting “My Body, my Choice!” That is because we had mentioned abortion in our preaching as one of the sins of America. My answer to that cliche is always, “It’s not your body! It’s the babies body! It’s not your body you want to mutilate and kill. It’s the babies body you want to mutilate and kill! And you have no right over the babies body to kill them!”

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.56.14 AM

We walked around and open-air preached all over this event. We would normally set up shop and preach for about 10 or 20 minutes before moving on to the next location. There were lots of ground to cover with thousands of people out there. We preached all over this event!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.56.41 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.56.53 AM

There was one altercation while we were preaching. An angry sinner tried to grab the bullhorn from one of the team members. He first chased him around to try to get it and when the brother slipped in the mud, the sinner grabbed ahold of the bullhorn poll.

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.57.07 AMScreen Shot 2018-09-12 at 1.57.26 AM

However, the Police were not far off and quickly showed up on the scene. They handled the situation and we were able to keep preaching for the rest of the day without incident.

We literally preached to tens of thousands of people this day! Praise God! Pray for all the seeds that were planted!



The Apostle Paul has to be the most slandered person in Church history. People often take his writings out of context, twist them, and paint Paul out to be a hypocritical sinner. In this documentary, I show how Paul was truly a holy man of God and exegetically explain all the verses that religious sinners twist to make Paul out to be a hypocrite.



Making a Difference for the Kingdom of God!


An older man contacted me recently to tell me that he has been in church his whole life, always thought he was saved, and was always told by pastors that your saved if you simply believe that Jesus died for your sins.

But he found and started watching our YouTube Street Preaching videos and

It. Changed. His. Life.

Because we preached one thing he never heard in church, “You must repent of your sins to be saved.”

Can you imagine! He went to church his whole life but never heard it preached that you have to repent to be saved! This shows you how corrupt and compromised most churches in America truly are!




These pictures are of an evangelism team in Switzerland! They sent me these pictures and told me how my ministry inspired them to go out and preach against the porn convention that was happening there in their country! The leader of the team, Carmen, said that she was inspired by my YouTube videos where we preached against the Porn Convention in Dallas, TX. Praise God, he is raising up laborers all over the world!


Hello there Am Georgia for Kenya,Africa and watched several videos whereby your preach across your country against sin. Thank u for your good work and word of God is the good we should all digest.



Hey Everyone!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We had such a fruitful year in 2018 and look forward to another great year in 2019! So many people heard the Word and came to repentance!

Please remember our family this month of December. It seems that our missionary support usually slows down this month as everyone is busy with their holiday shopping. We couldn’t do this ministry without help from the body of Christ!

Response to the Critics: Does Street Preaching Really Work? Where is the Fruit? Where are the Salvations?


Follow us on social media:



My Studio

I just filmed in my studio testimony after testimony for over an hour of people coming to the Lord through our street preaching – in response to the critics who say “Street Preaching isn’t going to win anybody to the Lord!”

I can’t count how many times critics have told me, “Street preaching doesn’t work. There is no fruit.”

This statement is always so ridiculous to me because I see the fruit over and over again since I am actually in the field. Statements like that come from those who aren’t doing it.

In this video I shared email after email of people who said they came to the Lord through our street ministry – atheists, homosexuals, muslims, drug dealers, satanists, etc. And they are from all over the world! Brazil, Sweden, Switzerland, England, Canada, USA, Philippines, China, France, etc.

The fact is, preaching the Gospel is very powerful, the Word never returns void, and the the harvest is plentiful, we just need more laborers!

These emails I share in the video are just the emails I’ve collected over the past few months. I’ve been getting emails like these monthly for 16 years now!

I asked in the video:

“Leave a comment on this video if you came to the Lord through our preaching or were inspired as a Christian to start witnessing and street preaching.”

Already we have received 140 new comments of people testifying of the impact our ministry has had in leading them to the Lord and getting them out unto the streets for witnessing!

I was not expecting such a huge response in such a short time!
