The Street Witnessing Ministry is comprised of a team of men and women of God with a passion for sharing the Gospel – the Good News – with those who are out in the highways and byways. This team literally takes the Gospel “to the streets.” We know that there are some people who may never set foot inside of a church building or sanctuary, so it is the mission of the Street Witnessing Ministry to “take the church” to them.
As children of God in the Body of Christ, we have been called as ministers of reconciliation, according to II Corinthians 5:19-21 (New Living Translation): “For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And He gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” The focus is to win the lost to Christ by offering salvation to those who have never accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their lives, and inviting them to do so according to Romans 10:9-10 (Amplified Bible): “Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Christ) and so is justified (declared righteous, acceptable to God), and with the mouth he confesses (declares openly and speaks out freely his faith) and confirms [his] salvation.”
The World Shakers have a radical and unique style in everything we do, and the Street Witnessing Ministry is no exception. Several times throughout the year, the WSCI family as a whole takes the Gospel to the streets together “as one man,” setting up speakers with music playing and microphones to share the gospel in areas as we pass out salvation tracks. We also stage “drive-bys” where members load up in vehicles with food and beverages and “jump out” of the vehicles with the food and beverages in hand along with tracks – armed with physical and spiritual food! Street witnessing is also used in conjunction with tent revivals.
When the World Shakers come together on the streets declaring “Jesus is Lord Over Eden Park” great things happen and people’s lives are transformed for the better after hearing the Gospel.
