Street Evangelist Tom Alexander At California’s State Capitol And Praying For The State’s Governor And Political Leaders.

CHURCH ON THE STREETS. That’s what it feels like every time Street Evangelist Tom Alexander begins a cross walk throughout one of Bakersfield’s official neighborhoods, as well as throughout the hundreds of other California cities he’s walked the cross in. Whether it’s our nation’s second largest city, Los Angeles, or a popular coastal city like Santa Monica, people respond whenever they see the 10 foot, 60-pound cross coming their way. Cross Walk California has resulted in hundreds of thousands of men, women and children not only seeing the cross on their residential streets, on their way to work, at the school they attend, or hoisted upright at their city’s police station as Tom prays for our thin blue line; but thousands have also rededicated their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ! Just as true, scores of thousands have come up to Tom and the cross and asked for prayer for themselves, for loved ones, or for the nation in general. Countless numbers have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior right there on the streets. And, of course, Church On The Streets is always just a prayer away from great revival taking place in that city! Continue reading to learn about CROSS WALK AMERICA: PRAY USA

What A Sight To Behold For A Former Surfer Turned Cross Walker!


(new life version)

The Lord of all life

He saved me one day.

I cried when He said,

I forgive you today.

Now I have the Warmth

of the Son;

It won’t ever die.

Since it seems that everybody who lives in Bakersfield goes to Pismo Beach instead of the southern California surf spots, it was bound to happen. Pismo Beach, here we come, bringing the long cross instead of the long board to this central California beach and walking the streets instead of walking the nose. Surf’s up in Pismo…and so is the long cross! Read the rest of this entry »

Street Evangelist Tom Alexander greeting and praying for people at Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey.


(new life in Christ version)

I’m thinking of good salvation,

Cross walking’s giving me excitations.

I’m thinking of  unsaved creations,

God’s giving me expectations.

Good, good, good, good salvation.

Good, good, good, good salvation.

What started out as an early morning fog turned into a beautiful sunshiny day, the kind of awesome day I remembered when we lived and ministered in the San Francisco Bay area for fourteen years. Jeanette and I loaded up the “go-ye-mobile” and headed to Fisherman’s Wharf,  just a few blocks from where we had stayed the night. As we slowly drove down the hilly street, the view of the pristine and wonderfully blue Pacific Ocean getting closer and closer by the moment filled my senses with both good and not so good memories of this beautiful northern California coastal town.

If Anyone Is In Christ, They Are Brand New Creations

The first time I had visited this city was way back in 1971 during a time that most certainly wasn’t as pleasant as now. On the F.B.I’s fugitive list for robbing a bank in Texas and escaping to California, I was a man on the run from justice and prison time. Read the rest of this entry »

Street Evangelist Tom Alexander hoisting the large cross upright and praying at Compton’s City Hall.

Since 1973 (when I became a believer) I have always wanted to go to Compton and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Now, after a successful and awesome cross walk in East Los Angeles and downtown Los Angeles, here I was!

Walking the large 10-foot, 60-pound cross on the sidewalk running parallel with Compton Avenue, I immediately was taken back by the friendliness of all the people passing by in vehicles, as well as the large number of believers coming up just to say hi and talk.

So where was the rampant crime and the dirty streets and the jailhouse mentality of all the people who live here that I had heard about so often when this city’s name came up in a discussion?  For all I could tell, Compton was a great city to live in. One that seemed to have had a major transformation of sorts.

Heading toward the city’s government hub, I was pleasantly surprised by all the people who came up and greeted this cross walker and who also asked for prayer for a loved one or themselves. I was also taken back by the number of individuals who thanked me for bringing the large cross to their city. I was even more surprised at what I saw at City Hall.

As I walked down Compton Avenue with a smile on my faith, little did I know what God had in store for this day.

Lake Forest's Beautiful City Hall Building Was Jammed Pack With Senior Citizens On This Special Cross Walking Day. Read The Story To Find Out How They Reacted To This Cross Walk.

After such a wonderful cross walk in Compton, the Spirit of the Lord impressed on me to travel southeast to the affluent communities of Lake Forest, El Toro and Mission Viejo in Orange County. Most definitely … perhaps even more … the upper-class citizens need to be saved as well. So off I went, excited about the amazing results of Cross Walk Compton and anticipating a special time in Lake Forest as well. Boy, was I in for a surprise. Read the rest of this entry »

Cross Walking And praying For The Men, Women, Children And Families Living In East Los Angeles.

After a special walk in downtown Los Angeles, I headed west on 6th Street that eventually turns into Whittier Boulevard and headed for the heart of East L.A. It was late, so I decided to get a motel room for the night and walk the cross in East Los Angeles the next morning.

After a nice and long talk with my wife through the free Skype’s computer program, which is quite a miracle in itself, I got a great night’s sleep. Early the next morning I ate my normal McDonald’s breakfast (which has become my on-the-road office of sorts) then headed east on Whittier and found a great parking spot. Unloading the large cross, I lowered it to my shoulder and headed west down this large and very busy boulevard. Read the rest of this entry »

Los Angeles skyline on a warm and beautiful sunny day in southern California.

Los Angeles. A city of over four million souls. Today the Spirit of God has brought me to this the second largest city in America. A city I’ve been wanting to walk the cross in for a long time. Now, as I headed toward this city that thoroughly dominates southern California, I wondered what I would tell the men, women and children I came upon. Would they listen to the message of the cross, of Jesus Christ, and of God’s love for them?

The freeway was highly congested, of course. Interstate 5 is the main artery running through the state of California. For whatever reason, I missed the downtown exits, and I hastily took the first exit I could take, which brought me into East Los Angeles, the second place on my destination this new week. I quickly found out why the Spirit of God led me to this exit instead of the ones that would have taken me to downtown L.A. Read the rest of this entry »

Street Evangelist Tom Alexander Praying For Hemet’s Thin Blue Line

I really didn’t plan on walking the cross at Hemet. But the Holy Spirit made me aware of a frightening problem in this city that, left unchecked, could hurt many people, starting with the city’s Thin Blue Line. So I gladly traveled the thirty-five miles or so from Riverside, and journeyed to this beautiful city of about 67,000 souls.

The trip was easy and the scenic views filled my soul with joy and awe of God’s creative power. This is a beautiful valley with several lakes. It wouldn’t be bad at all to live in a place like this. As I traveled down the scenic route leading to Hemet, I orally and loudly put on and took up the full armor and armaments of God and then ate the nine spiritual fruit of the Spirit, which I always do before cross-walking any city or town. I was now ready for spiritual warfare.

I knew exactly where I would walk the cross first and foremost. The Hemet Police station. Read the rest of this entry »

Nothing more exciting than to walk the large cross throughout a city’s diverse fields of souls and witness the move of God’s Spirit upon hearts.

Since 1973 I’ve had the pleasure of working for the Lord as a street evangelist. Some one million men, women and children later, it still blesses my heart every time I get the opportunity to shake someone’s hand, talk with them about Jesus, and pray for their needs.

I truly do not know the number, but thousands of men, women and children have accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord as the message of the cross is presented and shared and as the Holy Spirit convinces, convicts and converts.

As I entered Riverside County and the city of Riverside itself, I felt the Spirit of resurrection and life in Christ Jesus rising up inside me. Couldn’t wait to park the “go-ye-mobile” and walk the cross throughout this beautiful city as well.

University Avenue was my exit, which would give me easy access to downtown and City Hall. After checking into my motel room, I took the large cross from off my truck, prayed for a few minutes in the motel’s parking lot, then headed north on University. Response was immediate.

20110404032141!Sb_2004_dt_skyline_006a (2)Glory Hallelujah, look what God is doing all across the land of California! After a successful cross-walk mission in Pasadena, I traveled some fifty miles east to San Bernardino, a beautiful city that, on this day, was drenched by a pouring rain. But the Cross Walker loves to walk in the rain. Parking about one block from City Hall and the main downtown area, I unstrapped the large cross from the cab and bed of my “go-ye-mobile.” Already people began to gawk and look upon the scene of an evangelist getting ready to tote a large cross throughout their streets.

Love the rain. As I headed toward the main street of downtown San Bernardino, city workers asked me questions about what I was doing. I gladly shared with them my mission: to present the cross of Jesus Christ as God’s plus sign to the men, women and children living in San Bernardino; to proclaim the name above all names, the name of Jesus Christ, to all people; and to pray in the name of Jesus Christ for their city. My mission: to kick-start a great revival in this city, so men, women and children would come to the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Lord and Savior. Read the rest of this entry »

The world-renown Rose Bowl, home to some very great and exciting college football rivalries. 

What a way to start a new week of cross-walking. Beautiful day in Pasadena, home to the nationally-known Rose Bowl. Arriving downtown, I found a great place to park, just a block away from City Hall. The people were already awake, even though it was around 8:00. Already getting all kinds of smiles and car horns blowing as I made my way to the massive City Hall building. The Spirit of God was in this place, that’s for sure.

As I walked the cross up to the building and hoisted it upright, people were already making positive comments about the large cross. To my pleasant surprise, a city worker came up and asked if he could pray for the city as well. Read the rest of this entry »
