    They say 16th & mission is the first place the gospel was preached in San Francisco. 1776 ? There are some that have been on that corner ten and twenty years.

    Joe Absher Jackson and Powell street Taylor recalled in his book “Seven Years’ Street Preaching in San Francisco,”

    Taylor climbed up on a carpenter’s bench in front of one of the gambling houses that lined the square and, in a voice so powerful it could be heard for blocks around, began to sing. “Hear the royal proclamation, the glad tidings of salvation!” Taylor thundered. “Jesus reigns, he reigns victorious, over heaven and Earth most glorious!”

    It was the first street sermon ever preached in San Francisco, and the first of 600 that the tireless Taylor would give in the city. Born in Virginia in 1821, Taylor had been sent to California in 1848 by the Methodist General Conference to evangelize and erect a church

      I just wanna give you THIS SUNDAYS preaching rout

      Taylor’s Sunday routine was not for the weak of spirit — or vocal cords. He preached at 9 a.m. to his church class, then at 10 on the waterfront, then at the seaman’s bethel at 11, the State Marine Hospital on Rincon Point at 2:30, Portsmouth Square at 4, and the bethel again at 7. He estimated that he gave 100 of his sermons standing on top of whiskey barrels.

      William Booth of the Salvation Army was Methodist too. The preachers of that era had really good street ministry
