Charles Spurgeon on the Qualifications of an Open Air Preacher

I found the following qualifications from Charles Spurgeon on open air preachers to be interesting.  May God grant us servants of the King who display such a calling to take the gospel to the highways and by-ways (Mark 16:15).


1.  A good voice.
2.  Naturalness of manner.
3.  Self-possession.
4.  A good knowledge of Scripture and of common things.
5.  Ability to adapt himself to any congregation.
6.  Good illustrative powers.
7.  Zeal, prudence, and common sense.
8.  A large, loving heart.
9.  Sincere belief in all he says.
10.  Entire dependence on the Holy Spirit for success.
11.  A close walk with God by prayer.
12.  A consistent walk before men by a holy life.
