Stirred To Preach Open Air
The Baptist of the Southern Colonies in particular benefited from Whitefield's influence. Baptist churches and Baptist people were few in the South at the time, unbelief was entering among them and a zeal for soul winning was rare. But moved by Whitefield's ministry many of these churches became firm in the faith, and a new fevor began to characterize them. They increased in number with great speed as men-many of them farmer preachers-preached the gospel in tents, in barns, and in the open air. Souls in great number were one to Christ.
