Dean Saxton is an open air preacher of the gospel at the University of Arizona, Tuscon.
I started to feel this need to preach, this fire! it was like a fire locked up in my bones The only one I knew who was unashamed of the gospel was the head pastor at the church I was attending. But he didn’t ever want to go out with me. I kept on looking and searching and began praying to God about becoming a man of integrity…I didn’t know what was going to happen, then I saw brother Jed on campus. This is a man who has a reputation of upsetting everyone, and I saw a sign that read “the end is near” and “give me $$$$” this intrigued my wretched soul. Sitting down, listening to Bro Jed I was intrigued by his presence. It was like none I had ever come across. To see him as good battling the forces of evil was a picture none of my proud pastors would ever stoop down to do.
Jed came on a Thursday and all next week I listened to him as he called girls out on what they actually were. As he battled the Atheists, held his ground. I realized that this was the kind of bold witness I had been waiting for, this is what God had been getting me ready for. Then a voice said “who’s going to do this when he’s gone, who will rise up?” then later in the week an attractive college girl walked over to Bro Jed and gave him a seductive look and a wink and he sat back in his chair thought a bit and came back with “I realize what a temptation I can be to you girls!” I thought hey I could be a temptation too, by becoming a real man like Jed! At another time I saw Jed was having so much fun, then I heard “you could have just as much” that fun cost me dearly though.
Friday night Bro Jed said “Im an old man and Ive been doing this for about 39 years I’m 69 years old I might not come back who will rise up?” I stood up, and said “I will” then left.
That night a power over took me that I had felt only in part before. Then I preached that following Monday. Later I had a vision that I was combing the desert looking for the glory of God and then I said I wonder what Moses saw that day? Then I saw his eyes and the back of Gods glory was shown and that was my confirmation I was in the will of God, I didn’t believe Bro Jed was biblical but I did think he was loving only later to find he had the whole counsel!
Also ,when Bro Jed gave his testimony and said that God talked to him and that he was lead by God I was confronted with a problem either he’s telling the truth and a man of God or a complete crazy, wacko. Further more if what he says is true I need to change myself and my doctrine.
I went to Europe that summer for school and preached all around the continent, I felt a presence like none before in Florence when I stepped in the city, preached there and had great crowds and discussions. I plan to go back this summer for a month.
I am the troubler of Tucson. I trouble my college campuses I trouble high schools all events that I can in this city. THIS city is being reclaimed for God, because I am a bold witness unashamed of the Gospel. In my ministry I’ve been cursed at, stolen from, threatened with arrest (sorry), hit into a tree, chased by a bunch of vixens around a church in Florence, and choked. Honestly I don’t know how I got out of Europe without getting arrested, I know my credentials are few, but I’m learning.
I am going to the Las Vegas SOAPA Conference, through nothing short of a miracle. I plan on going to Michigan after school gets out at the University of Arizona in Tucson. To go preach and rebuke the campuses there, then If I can get the funds to go to Europe to preach with a various team of preachers. Then its back to the U of A for my senior year of preaching at colleges, events and high schools, really anywhere that there’s people to hear! If you able to become a monthly supporter or just give a gift, it would greatly help me go to Europe to preach. If I can not raise enough to go to Europe I will be traveling around the states, maybe near you…
