In this roundtable discussion, 5 men gather together to discuss PRECISION IN OUR PROCLAMATION -- how can we be precise in our theology, in our proclamation of the gospel, in our prayerfulness, in our humility and demeanor, and in our preparation to preach on the streets.
The 5 men at this Roundtable are:
1. Tom Rayborn
2. Dave Bowman
4. Nathan Groves
5. Geoff Kirkland
Pastor Geoff teaches on the theological foundation of the open air preacher at the conference. He teaches on what the gospel is, how important precise theology is, how to measure success and how to gauge effectiveness.
Pastor Geoff preaches on the brevity of life and the soon-coming death of all people. He calls all the passers by to "consider their latter end" as he preaches on the streets of St Louis, MO.
Pastor Geoff preaches Job 13:11 -- do you not fear the awesome majesty of God? And he calls men and women on the streets of St Louis, MO to turn from sin and to fear God and trust Christ alone for salvation from divine wrath. Come to this Savior and live!
Pastor Geoff answers a common objection that people pose to street evangelists and fervent soul-winners: "You're just driving people further from Jesus with your bold, hell-fire preaching of coming judgment." "You don't win people this way." This isn't "effective".
What can be said? What is a biblical response to such objections?
Pastor Geoff preaches in the open air during a busy lunch-hour rush in Clayton, Missouri and heralds the text when Jesus passes thru Jericho and comes across the blind man! Jesus has the power to give sight to the blind!
Do you see?
"College Campus Open Air Preaching: Jesus is LORD!"
Pastor Geoff preaches in front of Clayton High School (in ST Louis, MO) when the bell rings and the students exit the building. He preaches from Mark 8:35ff and shows that it's not foolish to think now about eternity -- and to take action now to repent of sin and trust in Christ alone!
Pastor Geoff proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ on a street corner during a very busy lunch-hour in downtown Clayton, MO.
As many men and women walk by, the gospel is heralded loudly calling men and women to consider eternity, see their sin as God sees it, and run to Jesus Christ by faith alone for salvation from eternal wrath.
