Preacher surround by police from angry mob

This was certainly an unforgettable, and ridiculous day! Jonathan preached the gospel open air at a gay rally! I was entirely thankful that I was just the camera girl and not the one up on the mic. As soon as Jonathan began explaining the gospel, about twenty-five very un-happy gay rights activists ran over to him and began chanting, “MARRIAGE EQUALITY FOR ALLLLLLLL,” while exposing their activists signs and posters in his face. I guess they kinda felt like we were stepping on their toes and crashing their party by showing up; which I can understand. However, what’s funny is Jon didn’t say a thing about homosexuals or marriage; so we were a bit confused as to why they so passionately hauled about equal rights. He started with the fundamentals of the gospel but rallyers found us to be downright offensive. As they got closer and closer to Jonathan I managed to inch my way closer and closer to the police in case they came and cussed me out too haha.

Our desire was to go out their and preach the hard truths and good news in love. We aren’t sure if it was received that way but the good news is the cops protected us,we didn’t get kicked out and the gospel was successfully delivered to several hundred people! Check out our video:)

Whats your craziest evangelism or open air story? We’d love to hear about it!

    i don’t know about pastors, but ccc often paetrrns w other ministries during events such as these and the fallout isn’t as bad as the list would suggest, but it’s not effective either. w facebook being so prevalent now on campus it’s easy to see friends of friends in the ministry which have the best chance of getting plugged in after an event like this. the problem is that events like these draw more curious strangers than friends of friends. i’d love to see more mass evangelism revolve around friends of friends than curious strangers.
