We do not have to be ordained to preach the gospel. First Corinthians 15:1-4 That Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, that He was buried and rose again on the third day, according to the scriptures.

All those who believe are saved, born again, and sealed by the Holy Spirit unto the day of redemption. Ephesians 1:13 and 4:30. 

So whether we preach it anywhere, His word will not come back void. Some one may believe and be saved from hell.

Once we know the truth, that Christ died for our sins, and we can never be condemned again, John 3:18, then we can tell others how to be saved. 

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, (everybody) that He gave His only begotten Son, (Jesus) that WHOSOEVER, (anybody) believeth in Him, should not perish, but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

Jesus said for us to go into all the world and preach the gospel. And every one who believes will be saved. 

We are still in the dispensation of grace for salvation. The Church age. It is from Acts to the rapture. Paul said it was a mystery in the old testament as no one knew about grace as a way of salvation until Paul received it from Christ and preached it to the Gentiles. Ephesians 3 is all about the mystery that came after Christ died. The mystery of salvation by grace through faith alone without works. 

That salvation is now a free gift to all who believe on Him and are redeemed by the blood of the lamb. 

Is there any place we can not preach the gospel? I do not think so. There was a man named Ironsides that use to go in to bars and taverns and preach the gospel where many believed and were saved.

How much does a person have to know to preach the gospel? Only knowing how we got saved by believing the gospel we can tell others how to be saved. We are never going to know everything, but we do know what Jesus said. John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me HATH ETERNAL LIFE.

First John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know ye have eternal life.
