David Owens - Street Evangelism

From BFWC's 2009 Generational Impact Pastors' and Leaders' Conference

Everybody cannot go.

1. Before going out to evangelize we pray. (Phil 4:6)

2. When witnessing, personal hygiene is very important. (Romans 14:21)

3. When you go out into the streets to witness, you must be bold. (Acts 4:13)

4. When taking others with you, make sure they are born again. (1 Thess 5:12)

5. While witnessing, do not speak a lot of Bible, unless who you are witnessing to knows the word. (1 Cor 2:14)
--- Scripture is like Chinese to them

6. When street evangelizing, always walk in love, and by faith. (1 Cor 13:1-2)

7. When praying for others in the streets, keep your eyes open. (Matt 26:41)

8. Be careful when praying for others. Men should not touch/lay hands on women and women should not touch/lay hands on men.

9. When evangelizing, you should have a spiritual covering. (Hebrews 13:17)

10. Street ministry will help church growth. Follow up with people you have witnessed to. (church cards, notebook to write telephone numbers down)
