Greetings fellow preachers,

This is my second attempt to solicit from you some help in compiling a contact sheet of street and campus preachers. The purpose of this list will be to publicize the Aggelos Society, which I told you about in the first letter. To sum up what I said before, the Aggelos Society will be a coalition of street and campus preachers for the purpose of providing services to our growing band of soldiers. It will be a peer to peer group, not a hierarchy, or an effort to bring anyone under any kind of authority.

I hope to band us together because there is strength in doing so. It won't be a controlling structure, but a self-help structure. Each will still be in their own ministries, To that end, I am trying to build some interest, and find out who is out there - both street (events) and campus, nighttime and daytime. If you could help me out, all I am trying to do is build a list at this point. Any you send to me will not be put on my general mailing list. This is a separately maintained list.

 

Aggelos Society

We will be forming a society to help fund, equip, encourage, and strengthen all evangelists, regardless of the methodology chosen. Street preachers, street mimes, passing out tracts, one-on-one witnessing, door-to-door witnessing, event booths, whatever a man uses, as long as he is evangelizing, we want to help. One of the main goals is to work with the mainstream church to instruct the church as to God's wisdom in His commandment to preach. The aim is to bring street preaching back to the place of honor it originally had under the apostles.

As such we will be offering several services:

  • Help with funding when it becomes possible
  • A website that will list every college campus in the country, their free speech policy, who to contact, whether private or state, and a host of other bits of information that are often needed. It will have the ability to keep track of where everyone is (if they want), and to be able to schedule campuses and not be stumbling all over each other. It will also be a means to see which campuses have been hit, or are virgin territory.
  • In addition, the website will also provide the same type of information for events, parades, festivals, or any other gathering of people. This information will be provided for those who want to work events, like Mardi Gras, Days of Decadence, Indy 500, Kentucky Derby, etc.
  • The websites will not be restricted to preachers only, but will rely on the preachers to provide most of the information. In addition, there will be a note board for each preach site so we can pass on interesting or vital things not covered by the data form. We can rate or score each campus and warn each other of rogue administrations.
  • An independent street preacher's newspaper that will go out on a consistent basis to which we can all contribute, cover news associated with street preaching, sell products from street preaching ministries, and to sell advertising.
  • A "show and tell" flip chart tool for those who defend creationism, consisting mostly of pictorial evidence that irrefutably declares that God is the creator, and Darwin is mistaken. This tool/aid will be created by cooperation amongst several creationist organizations, and will be a simple means to address the students at a level they can grasp - pictures.
  • Access to available TV and Internet air time 24/7
  • Liaison with Christian legal organizations (more strength in numbers)
  • Provide support for lawsuits and wrongful arrests or prosecutions.
  • A zero interest loan program for help with unexpected expenses, like vehicle break down, etc.
  • In the future, we also hope to be able to provide a speaker booking services to those who join

That is it in a nutshell - so far. If there are other services that would strengthen our effectiveness, or add to our ability to get the message out, please feel free to email me and suggest it.

Thanks guys.

Bro Cope
