The video is of Jeff Lewis conducting Power Evangelism Training at Ignited Church. Jeff is the guy doing the street evangelism at the Florida Outpouring. Jeff leads City Taker Ministries and is a maniac for Jesus.

Jeff has trained 6,400 people so far in Power Evangelism. He really, REALLY believes in the need to preach hell to people. The Law brings with it the knowledge of sin necessary for true conviction and life-changing repentance. The anemic gospel that much of the church has been preaching produces a true conversion rate of 10 – 15% (I personally think he’s being rather generous with those numbers) and produces anemic, carnal converts.

These guys are out on the streets six days a week in Lakeland. They are committed to seeing the city touched. The City Takers website has some really good training materials and materials to use in evangelism. Their college campus survey is awesome! The premise for the campus is to engage the student in the survey by offering them 5 bucks if they can name all ten of the commandments. You can talk to a college student all day on that one! They will bring ALL their friends to you (just make sure you bring lots of CASH for this one!)

Here’s a video of Jeff showing what practical ministry on the streets of Lakeland looks like.

This is really good stuff. If you have a desire to impact your city, go through the training on Jeff’s site, print up some surveys, grab some tracts and go for it!

    Amazing Grace

    I would like to share a testimony with you, I was asked to preach in a Dorset village called Lychett Maltravers. I had never been there before so I decided to visit the church the day before I was scheduled to preach. I found the church down a very narrow lane, I prayed to the Lord and said, “Lord, what word do you want me to preach to these people.” He told me in my mind to enter the church. On entering the church I met the cleaner, who told me that I was welcome to have a look around. I walked over to the pulpit and noticed the communion rail, then the Lord began to speak to me again and said, “You see this communion rail,” I replied, “Yes, Lord.” “Well, when you preach tomorrow, you must tell the people that many times in the past they have come to the communion rail to receive the bread and the wine, but this time they must come to receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour, publicly, for where two or three are gathered together in my name there I am in the midst,” saith the Lord.

    Well, the following day I did as the Lord had said, I began to preach my sermon, then I remembered what the Lord had said, so I told them that Jesus is standing by this communion rail, and as they had received the bread and the wine in the past, today, they were to receive Jesus, fully into their lives. I stood to one side of the rail, and we all began to sing Amazing Grace ! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see. Then one lady who had been attending that church for many years came to the front and knelt down, and gave her life fully to Jesus. Praise God. It reminds me of a scripture, where Jesus said, “ I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons which need no repentance,” {St Luke 15 v 7}.

    Now, for those who did not receive Jesus that day, they became very troubled. I received a letter from one of the Elders who could not understand how I could of heard Jesus speaking to me. He said, “Who do you think that you are? God doesn’t speak,” Obviously he was not listening to God’s word; I perceived that he to needed to come to Jesus. Another gentleman came to my home, and he was very troubled as well, he said, “Now that this lady is saved, how are you going to disciple her? For we are not going to.” Well, I thought to myself, it is Jesus who saves, and it is Jesus who keeps us, for Jesus said, “That it is He who has begun a good work in us and it is He who will finish it.” So I guess that this gentleman needed to receive Jesus as well. Maybe many others in that church should have responded to the altar call that day; my prayer is that they don’t leave it too late. But as for me, I’m going to rejoice with the angels in heaven over that one soul that was saved. Praise God.

    Oh Jesus, Lord and Saviour, I give myself to Thee; For thou, in Thine atonement,
    Didst give thyself for me; I own no other Master, My heart shall be Thy throne,
    My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ, for Thee alone.

    Now I have seen 3 separate great active evangelical pushes in 3 separate denominations firsthand, the Baptist and the Pentecostal, Alliance ones included.. but what had rightfully concerned me still was the serious leader’s, elders personal immorality and corruption within these churches, which any evangelical outreach still did not deal with! Preaching the Gospel is still not an acceptable alternative to living it. “So in one of the churches the evangelical Baptist outreach leader had sexually propositioned me even.. me a married man, and the pastor had counseled my wife to divorce me, and in the Pentecostal church the outreach pastor had counseled my wife to divorce me as well, in the process the church pastors were stealing money, abusing funds etc..” what were these churches now converting people to in reality? Unacceptable religious abuse. Churches should be sanctuaries .. not prisons. Faith should be the ultimate freedom .. not the ultimate trap..
