Lonnie Matherne preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the open air downtown New Orleans in CBD. Despite what some people say the Bible teaches that you have to repent from your sins and turn to Jesus Christ to be saved. Jesus Himself said that you must be born again. I am very new to street preaching but I believe that this is what God wants me to do. The Bible command us to preach the Gospel. I am not very good at friendship evangelism and I don’t believe it is necessary to know the person much less be friends with a person before sharing the Gospel. Do you have to have a personal relationship with your dentist before you let him pull a tooth?
I would love to hear from some veteran street preachers or just some seasoned Christians on what I can do to improve. The Holy Ghost is a must! I attend Faithful Word Assembly Church led by Pastor Rusty Tardo

If you live in the New Orleans area, I am always looking for people to go preaching with.

Here is the definition of Open Air preaching from Wikipedia,

Open-air preaching, street preaching, or public preaching is the act of publicly proselytizing a religious message to crowds of people in open places. It is an ancient method of communicating a religious or social message and has been used by many cultures and religious traditions, but today it is usually associated with Evangelical Protestant Christianity.

Early Methodist preachers John Wesley and George Whitefield preached in the open air, which allowed them to attract crowds larger than most buildings could accommodate.

Motives for open-air preaching include to glorify God and to fulfill the command to preach and make God’s Word known
Some who believe street preaching is Biblical include examples such as Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount that of the prophet Jonah, who reluctantly obeys the command of God to go to the city of Nineveh and preach “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!”.[Others listed include Paul’s speech to the Athenians in Acts 17. However, others believe from scripture that Jesus was not technically a street preacher nor could possibly be one, “He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.”
The Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry lists the “many examples of street preaching in the Bible” as including Noah, Solomon, Ezra, Jeremiah, Jonah, John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, Peter, Paul, Phillip and Apollos.

Martin Luther wrote that “Unauthorized men preaching on the street corners are a sure sign of the devil”, believing that only those who were officially ordained could preach to people.[citation needed] This the same charge clergy from the Church of England were leveling at the Wesleys in their own time.

Some notable modern street preachers are Jesse Morell, Jed Smock, Ruben Israel, Ross Maroney, Seth Dixon and Caleb Pegues

The ministry “Open Air Outreach” lists legal rights of open air preaching, like “We have the right to exercise our religion and speak in all quintessential public forums,” “We have a “guaranteed access” to streets, parks, and other ‘traditional public forum” and mere inconvenience to the government will not outweigh our free speech interests,” and “Our freedom of speech may not be prohibited merely because it offends some listeners”

What is Celebrate Recovery?

Celebrate Recovery is a ministry designed to help hurting people. It is made up of regular folks like you and me, who are on a journey toward wholeness; seeking recovery from and celebrating God’s healing of life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups. Trained leaders provide safe, confidential, Christ-centered groups where people can grow. They offer their stories as fellow travelers on the journey to healing.
At Celebrate Recovery we believe that change is possible by the power of Jesus through this Biblical program.

Is Celebrate Recovery for YOU?

Celebrate Recovery is for anyone with the courage to be honest about life’s hurts, habits and hang-ups and is willing to open their life to healing and change.

We believe in walking through the pain of this life together as we follow Christ, not telling people how or where they should walk. We are all still recovering from hurt and pain, our current or past addictions are no longer hidden but are now front and center, and you will probably easily identify the hang-ups in each of us. However, you will also identify the most authentic, transparent, genuine, and compassionate people anywhere. Thankfully, our identity is not found in our weaknesses or struggles, but is found in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Celebrate Recovery is a recovery ministry based on biblical principles with a goal to let God work through us in providing His healing power. This allows people to be “changed” spiritually by working through sound biblical principles. Participants open the door by sharing their experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In addition, they become willing to accept God’s grace and forgiveness in solving life’s problems. Celebrate Recovery provides a safe place for individuals to begin their journey of breaking out of bondage and into God’s grace by helping them to start dealing with their life’s hurts, hang-ups, and habits.

“Blessed be the gGod and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and hGod of all comfort, 4 iwho comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
(2 Corinthians 1:3&4 ESV)
