Open-air preaching has always been a primary means of God’s truth being communicated to the lost world. Noah did it, Jonah did it, John the Baptist did it, Jesus did it, the apostles did it, and many men throughout the centuries have done it (to include Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards, Wesley, and E. M. Bounds). Some well-known contemporary open-air preachers would be Ray Comfort, Paul Washer, Jeff Rose, Pat Necerato, Tony Miano, Kevin Williams, Josh Williamson, and others. The following are “mini sermons” that can be utilized for open-air preaching. I pray they may be instructive and useful for those currently engaged in or preparing for street preaching. “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ” (Col. 1:28).
