Church Street Marketplace Evangelism…”Street Fishing”
Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
Matthew 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
We go “Street Fishing” on Church Street in Burlington, VT monthly on Saturdays from April thru July.
The desire to reach folks where they are at was really birthed by Amazing Grace Fair Ministry. The reality is we need to reach folks wherever they are at, as Jesus did, and like the fair ministry, by being out on Church Street (with a simple table with tracts, bibles and books), we simply try to engage in conversation with folks..and if we can get someone to stop and have a conversation about the Lord (and that is the greatest blessing), then we fulfill out part, and pray the Holy Spirit does the rest.
We are not called to win debates, or argue with folks, just to present God’s truth in love.
