Go Stand Speak
The Forgotten Power of the Public Proclamation of the Gospel
With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not? Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
Throughout the early church, through the reformation and within all the great revivals of the past, God has seemed to raise up bold gospel preachers out of the pulpit and into the public to proclaim His Word.
Why then does the church seem to shun this historical and logical method of soul winning? Some of what you see and hear in this film may shock you and that’s simply because the public proclamation of the gospel is not something Christians are used to seeing. It’s even looked at as extreme or radical by some. Although the church seems to have rejected and forgotten about this method of soul winning, throughout America and beyond right now, there seems to be a quiet insurgence of public preaching such as in the days of the great revivals of the past.
Is this a move of the Holy Spirit or is this just a bunch of radical Christians taking things too far and potentially giving the church a bad name?
Should the preachers of the church leave the pulpit and step out and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in the public places, where the people who may never come to church gather and hear?

Martin, Dr. George Grant, Paul Washer, Greg Gordon, Pastor John Reuther, Rusty Lee Thomas, David Legge, Ray Comfort, Stuart Migdon, Michael Marcavage, Jeff Rose, Shawn Holes, Sean Morris and many others.
Is this quiet, new move of public preaching something that is simply a trend, or is it again the beginning of a move of God where He is simply doing what He always has done – calling His ministers to go and preach His message of repentance and faith where the people gather in the public, regardless of culture, current trends, or the popularity of the message and method?
