Video documentary on preaching the Gospel at public schools – inside & outside of schools – a Call to Arms!
Video documentary on preaching the Gospel at public schools (inside & outside of schools)
In this video Bro. Ronnie discusses the importance of preaching the Gospel inside and outside of public schools, and you will see them do just that. The high school student seen open air preaching inside his school is Michael Anthony Leal.
Sadly the majority of professed Christians that I know, are against open-air preaching. Which means they’re against what the Bible commands. Michael is one of the many living testimonies to the effectiveness of open-air preaching in this postmodern era.
What makes this video so unique? Earlier this year Michael was inside his high school, when he heard Ronnie Cardiel preaching on the outside (with his megaphone).
To the glory of God, Michael responded to that Gospel call. Henceforth, Michael is now born-again, and is now preaching on the inside of his school (which you will see in this video).
I err on the side of caution to not ‘toot my own horn’ regarding ‘results’ or ‘numbers.’ For that reason you will rarely hear me talk about ‘results’ or ‘numbers’. But in hopes to edify the church, and to glorify Christ; from time to time I will toot the horn for another preacher.
Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips” (Proverbs 27:2).
Several open-air preachers that I have had the privilege to preach with, are seeing many saved under their preaching. I’m not talking about results created by the preacher, such as getting them to make a ‘decision,’ or ‘accept’ Jesus, or ‘repeat a sinner’s prayer’, or a thru ‘raise your hand’ altar call. I’m talking about GOD and GOD alone bringing the lost down to their knees. I’m talking about the lost being radically changed by a radical God.
Men like Ronnie and Tatsuo are now raising up, and discipling these new converts. As I say this about other men, please know that I am only boasting in Christ and His cross (1 Cor 1:31, 2 Cor 10:17).
In this video Ronnie and the rest of their team covered the outside of schools in Las Vegas. While Michael A. Leal preached on the inside of his own high school.
Disclaimer: This is not an IPOC outreach. Since Bro. Ronnie does not do social media, he asked me to upload these onto my channel. I agree that the Lord will use this video to encourage the body of Christ.

Update: About my above preface, a Christian asked me on Facebook, “What biblical reason do these Christians give you against open air preaching?” Below is my response in comment.
Brother (snipped) none of them can give a Biblical reason. They are emergents that believe we should be relevant, and emerge / assimilate to the world; rather than be Biblically accurate and orthodox. They are either ~
• ignorant or the Scriptures, or
• are ashamed of the Gospel, or
• are embarrassed by the Gospel, or
• are convicted because of their apathy, or
• are cowardly (Rev 21:8), or
• are not actually born-again.
Many of them will selectively use the John chapter 4 scenario where Jesus sat down with the woman at the well. Henceforth those opponents believe that the most effective way that we should evangelize is thru “friendship evangelism (making friends first,) or via “casual conversational” evangelism.
These folks have formed Jesus into a figment of their own imagination, rather than submit to the image of Jesus as the Christ (and His Gospel).
I won’t state his name because I don’t want to endure the wrath of a large portion of my own Facebook friends. But recently a well-respected So Calif based evangelist stated that we should not go to public places where they don’t want to hear the Gospel. He even said we should only go where they are “willing to hear the Gospel.” As a matter of fact, this same evangelist uses less Gospel, and more comedy and cleverness. And thousands of Christians are being trained up by this ministry. Could you imagine Jesus (GOD,) or the great apostles doing this?
As I’ve said so many times before. ‘Nowhere in the Scriptures are evangelists (or street preachers) told to first get the worlds permission to preach. Nowhere in the Scriptures are Christians told to accommodate the world. Nowhere in the Scriptures are we told to only preach to crowds that are ‘willing’ to listen. Nowhere in the Scriptures are we told to redact, truncate, or replace the preaching of the glorious Gospel with tricks, gimmicks, gadgets, skits, magic, entertainment, word games, jokes, or comedy. We ought to be thankful that they are out there, but when our evangelism efforts become more man-centric, and less Gospel-centric; it’s no longer orthodox Biblical evangelism. Nowhere in the Scriptures are we told to wait once a year to invite lost sinners to a crusade. But we are told to bring the crusade to them.’
Sadly today, most Christians prefer the above postmodern methods of evangelism.
An analysis was done of all the evangelism efforts done in the book of Acts. Only 17.4% were either ‘friendship’ of ‘casual conversational’ evangelism. The other 82.6% were ‘contact’ evangelism (going into public places and open-air preaching to strangers.)
“For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words [the Gospel], of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:26).
