Last week I flew to LA for a 3-day evangelism course with Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron’s ministry — The Way of the Master.
It’s called the Ambassador’s Academy. It was truly an amazing experience for me. and I couldn’t recommend it more strongly for anyone who wants to be equipped in learning to share their faith.
The first day was an intense (and wonderfully rich!) time of training from Living Waters Staff. Over the weekend we heard from Toni Miano, Ray Comfort, Emeal “E.Z.” Zwayne, Stuart “Scotty” Scott, Mark Spence, and Kirk Cameron…
Here was our group doing open air preaching in Hollywood. Wow–what an experience! It was like a zoo!
We often used trivia questions to draw a crowd and then shared the gospel. I admit, I never seriously pictured myself doing this. 🙂 But it’s true– you can speak to more unsaved people during one open-air session then you may reach in a whole year if you simply try to invite people to various church evangelistic events. It’s certainly a Biblical approach as Jesus, Paul, Peter, and many others preached in the open air… and it still works today. Also, it seems that people are especially curious to know what young people have to say. And with trivia questions, illustrations, etc. it’s not as difficult as we may imagine.

Open air preaching at Hunington Beach.
This was an exciting conversation. These girls understood that they were lost sinners and were anxious to know the way to be saved. We had a long talk and they left with enthusiasm. It was very encouraging.
There were fifty in our class. It was so refreshing to be around fifty other people with a passion to win the lost. The fellowship was wonderful.
If you are not familiar with the Way of the Master ministry, definately check it out. The Lord has used their organization so much to equip and teach me.
