This will be a real treat for me this coming Sunday for I will be preaching in East Texas and sleeping in my own bed. Well, somebody say amen! One of the men who served on the Deacon board with me at LONGVIEW BAPTIST TEMPLE for over a decade is pastoring the LEESBURG BAPTIST CHURCH of Leesburg, TX. I am excited about preaching for him. I love this man and family very much. He reported yesterday they have 24 visitors lined up for Sunday with 3 saved today out soul winning.
God has been so good to me this week with Him allowing me to lead 8 folks to Christ and last Sunday God gave me one for baptism. This has been a good month of soul winning for me with 25 salvation decisions and 7 of those following the LORD in baptism. I am very encouraged by these young men of God around the nation who are taking this thing of personal soul winning seriously.
There are two such men who are going to preach at the first INDEPENDENT BAPTIST CONFERENCE to be held in the Milwaukee, WI., area on April 8-10, 2012. By the way there are only a few free motel rooms available for pastors and their wives. Please call 414-301-9319 or 414-248-1879 to reserve one of those free rooms. I promise you it will be a great time of refreshment.
Dr. Shelton Smith, Editor of THE SWORD OF THE LORD, will be preaching along with myself and Dr. Russell Anderson. “WHAT HAS BEEN DONE CAN BE DONE!”
|Pastor Brent Lenetine
Pastor Lenetine and his family moved from Atlanta, GA., to start the GOSPEL LIGHT BAPTIST CHURCH of Rio Rancho, NM., in 1988. They knew no one and immediately started knocking doors and giving the Gospel. Their first Sunday God gave them 26 in attendance. They recently built a 425 seat auditorium and on their first Sunday in the new facility God gave them 650 in attendance. They are currently averaging 450 each Sunday. This is a great soul winning church led by a great personal soul winner. This will be one of the preachers you will want to meet and hear.
|Pastor Todd Poynter|
Pastor Poynter and his family started the GREENWOOD BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH just outside of Indianapolis, IN., in 1995 with 2 others in attendance. Since then they have gone through 5 major building programs and grown to averaging 450 each Sunday. He was raised under the ministry of Dr. Jack Hyles and is an aggressive personal soul winner as well as a great organizer of ministries. He will be on of the preachers you will want to meet and hear.
This will be the first of such conferences around the nation. Classes will be conducted on Tuesday morning at 9 am for pastors, staff, laymen, ladies, and youth. A noon luncheon will be hosted by Dr. Russell Anderson.
By the way Dr. Anderson will be teaching laymen about starting and succeeding in business. He is 81 years of age and has a desire to teach what God has taught him to our laymen. He came from the coal mines of Kentucky to operating 7 businesses and gave 39 million dollars to independent Baptist works.
Behind every great revival there was a man of God and behind every great man of God was a great layman of God. Bring you laymen and allow God to use Dr. Anderson to help them.
If you can please make plans to join us in Milwaukee, WI., on April 9-10, 2012. Call now for your free motel room. GOTTA LOVE SERVING THE LORD!
