Over the years, ONTHEREDBOX has developed a platform for evangelism called “The Four Columns”. It is important to base your evangelism on solid biblical truths and not fall into the temptation to modify the message to make it more palatable for the listener. You can modify the method of presenting the message but you must never modify the message. The idea must be to modify your heart to the message.
During the 15 years at ONTHEREDBOX I have studied the preachers of the past 500 years. What did they preach? What were the messages of the great revivals of the past? I have studied the message of Jesus and the Apostles and have seen both promises and warnings in their evangelism. I discovered that all great evangelism throughout history was built on the foundation of The Four Columns.
Today I launch the introductory video of the The Four Columns.
In this 3-minute video I give an overview of what the four columns are. Over the next few months I will be releasing four more videos, explaining each of the columns in more detail.
You may download it, share it, post it, and show it at church or at your bible study.
It would be good for you to watch my full version teaching on The Four Columns here.
Special thanks to our creative team that made this video possible.

One of the best ways to keep the soul from shrivelling is to stay active in evangelism. We are either growing or shrinking, but we cannot stay the same.
On January 1st I challenged myself to preach the Gospel open air for the next 100 days. My goal is to preach a different message every day and keep a running blog with daily testimonies, photos, videos and an outline of the message you can download for your own use. Follow my progress at jacobbock.space.
So here is my challenge for you.
For the next 100 days, give your soul a dose of revival by sharing the Gospel. Here are five ways to do that.
- Pass out a gospel tract
- Do personal evangelism
- Share your testimony with a stranger
- Pray for a stranger
- Preach open-air
You can register for the 100 day evangelism challenge any time. When you do, I will commit to pray for you during those 100 days. My 100 day blog.
2017 is a time for growing in evangelism. Take the challenge!
Who are we?
Ontheredbox is a ministry that God raised up in 2002 in Madrid, Spain. It consists of about 80 Christians from local evangelical churches that dedicate themselves to prayer proclamation of the Gospel and training of evangelists. We have 20 volunteers that make up our leadership team.
What do we do?
Monday through Saturday we open our coffee house and prayer room from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Then we evangelize on the street from 7-10 pm. All Christians that participate in Ontheredbox are part of our Basic Training Course that teaches the Gospel message, how to do personal evangelism, share your testimony and preach an illustrated message. We also have classes every month as well as our online school.
Why do we do what we do?
The main reason we pray, evangelize and train is so that God will be glorified. He has called us to these things and by our obedience we please Him and He advances His Kingdom.
How can you participate?
- Become a FRIEND on the Ontheredbox NETWORK. This gives you access to all of our ebooks and videos.
- Take the free online Basic Training Course. We will walk you through the basics of Ontheredbox style evangelism that will help you become more effective.
- Join us in Madrid, Monday-Saturday.
In our Prayer House at Ontheredbox, we use the Scripture as our prayer book. Take Romans 12 for example. Here you have a list of 20 things Paul encouraged the Italians to have in their life. I want these characteristics in MY life! I want them in the life of those on my evangelism team and in my church.
I have prepared a simple slide presentation to help you pray biblically for others. As you intercede for someone else, God is sure to work the same in your life as well.
