Fishin’ at the Pier


This Saturday we will trek to the easiest fishin’ hole around: The Redondo Beach Pier. On a scale of 1 to 10 it’s a zero. No kidding. People are friendly, kind, nice, and will, on occasion, applaud a preacher’s open air sermon!

Below, my 9-year-old daughter D.D. makes a very confident open air preaching debut, mic and all.

“Are you a good person?” Look at all those hands shoot up!

This man introduced himself as Lukas Rossi, a Canadian rock musician and the winner of the CBS Television reality series Rock Star: Supernova, a televised audition contest to become lead singer of Rock Star Supernova.

He stopped by to take the “Good Person” test at our open microphone.
It turns out he was interested in turning over his life to Christ… just not then. Oh well, it’s easier to be a rockstar than to follow the bright Morning Star.

Join us for a great adventure. Meet at noon at Hope Chapel.


  1. WAY TO GO, D.D.!!

    You look like a real pro up there! God must be so pleased with you! That was your first of what I hope will be many opportunities to preach the Good News in public.

    Did your Dad happen to take a video of you up there preaching on the box? If so, tell him there would be many who would love to see it. I know I would!

  2. I grew up in Redondo and now live in Colorado. Every time my family and I visit, we always go to the pier, eat at El Torito overlooking the south side of the beach, get a churro from the guy downstairs, and crack a few oysters to see if we can get some pearls. Seeing this type of open air on the pier makes me so happy. It looks like you like the horseshoe part near the fishermen best for preaching; I would have thought that down near Charlie’s or the kite shop would have the most traffic.

    I do open air preaching primarily at the skate parks here in my town of Castle Rock and nearby Highlands Ranch. You can see some of the videos I’ve taken at .

    If I’m back in the South Bay, I’d love to get a chance to go preach with you and your crew. God Bless.
