Sketchboard evangelism is a good way to share the gospel outdoors in front of crowd of people.
Open Air Resources
Part of our mission is equipping the church for the work of evangelism, and one of the ways that we fulfill that mission is by sharing with other evangelists the tools, techniques, and resources that we find helpful. Many of these resources are freely downloadable, such as the message outlines for evangelistic preaching and some of the training materials. Others are physical tools, such as paints and paintbrushes for creating our trademark "sketchboard sermons." If you want a sketchboard of your own, we have plans for building several types and sizes, or you can order from us a kit or a fully pre-built sketchboard. We have sketchboard message outlines, board kit assembly instructions and video, equipment and supplies, kids messages, and sketchboard evangelism training.
Sketchboard Kit assembly instructions
On this site, you can download board kit assembly instructions and view board kit assembly video. The instructions and video are prepared by Open Air Campaigners.

Open Air Campaigners offers a one-week Sketchboard Evangelism Training (SET) each year that individuals or groups may attend. Interested churches or groups can also contact them about arranging a training program for them in the form of a customized one-day or multi-day training. Open Air Campaigners also creates “sketchboard sermons.” You can order from them a kit or a fully pre-built sketchboard.

Sketchboard – You ARE Mine video
This is a story told with the help of the 3 rope trick and a sketchboard. It is told to encourage those who are far from home to know that if they belong to the one who said “You ARE Mine” they are Home wherever they are.
