Open Air Preaching at Lindley Park: 8-24-08
The following You Tube clips are segments of open-air preaching at Lindley Park in Greensboro, NC on Sunday evening, 8-24-08. I have been preaching open-air on and off for about 8 years, but my preaching has never been video taped and subsequently placed on You Tube for the benefit of others.
There is much open-air preaching out there that really should not be called “preaching” because it is doctrinally aberrant and in many cases, downright hateful in its presentation. It is my hope that Christian preachers of the Reformed persuasion will watch videos like this and be encouraged to find a place to regularly preach the gospel of grace in an open-air fashion for the glory of God and the expansion of the Kingdom.
You cannot see it on the videos because of the position of the camera, but there were many people walking right in front of me. In the first two segments, we had a small crowd of about 10 people standing around and curiously listening to the preaching. We even had a woman and her grandchildren come up to hug my neck for preaching the gospel. However, we had no hecklers. All in all, hundreds of people heard the gospel. We will let God do with it what He will (Romans 9:16, 18).
P.S. I want to send out a special thanks to a dear brother who took the time to endure the heat to film these segments.
