Who We Are

Exhort.  Equip.  Engage.

The Speak:Truth Project is comprised of brothers and sisters in Christ who have been saved by the grace of God alone through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ alone. We desire to uphold the biblical mandate for all believers to GO into all the world (your world – home, family, work, neighborhood, and anywhere your feet may touch the ground) and proclaim the Gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). As ambassadors for Christ, we are obligated out of love to this command of our King (2 Corinthians 5:20). After all, Charles Haddon Spurgeon once said:

Every Christian is either a missionary, or an impostor.

There is a great urgency to make the Lord Jesus Christ known to the ends of the earth. Whether family, friends, or strangers, each day we come across sinners who are still dead in their trespasses and remain under condemnation.  Many of these rely on themselves as good people and continue in rebellion to the 1st and 2nd Commandments for creating and worshiping a  god in their own image. We therefore desire to EXHORT and EQUIP you to share our Christian faith with a dying world, as well as offer you the opportunities to ENGAGE the lost with us on the streets.

The Speak:Truth Project is committed to street evangelism at least two days a week and will increase this frequency as the Lord wills. Current ministry efforts will be focused on Uptown Charlotte, downtown Matthews, and local abortion mills. Weekly outreaches are generally 3-4 hours per activity and include tract distribution, one-on-one witnessing, and open-air preaching as the Lord directs.  Please see Projects for more details.

The Speak:Truth Project is also committed to monthly “Projects” that focus on major events in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. The focus of these events is evangelizing large gatherings of people including concerts, sporting events, conventions, parades, and festivals. Completed Projects include Carolina Panthers games, J.C. Smith Homecoming Parade, CIAA tournament, NCAA tournament, NASCAR Speed Street, the Pride Charlotte gay festival, the Super Bowl, and the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Regional events range from a few hours to all day or weekend events and include tract distribution, one-on-one witnessing, and open-air preaching.  See Projects Accomplished for details on past events.

Joining The Speak:Truth Project has many benefits: 1) Consistent evangelism opportunities 2) Consistent locations and times build a rapport with the local community 3) Fellowship with local evangelists 4) Foster leadership growth as new evangelists join the team 5) Network and fellowship with regional evangelists at events in the Southeast.

You are invited to join a structured and principled evangelism team committed to the local church and designed to help you grow as an evangelist by giving you consistent opportunities to engage the lost with the Gospel. The fellowship being built locally and regionally is truly an amazing work of God, and we are very excited about what’s in store for our team. If your heart is burdened for sinners who desperately need a Savior and you desire to serve with a group of like-minded believers for the glory of God, then please consider joining The Speak:Truth Project.  For more information, please see our Contact page.

We are most humbled and grateful to our God and Savior Jesus Christ for calling us to serve Him by serving you through this ministry. Ultimately, we are God’s “project” as He reveals in Scripture:

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10

We invite you along this journey with us as we resolve to obey the Great Commission.  You can stay updated on ministry opportunities by subscribing by email on the right sidebar or through RSS subscription. You can also follow us on Google Plus, facebook and twitter.
