  • Want Job Security?

    The great thing about going on visitation is no body will try to take your job. They'll try to get the Pastor's job, the SS teacher's job, and various other jobs, but they won't try to take the job of visitation. Thank God there is a place of job security in the church.

    The Lord has called me to a unique ministry. The Lord has called me to evangelize Washington D.C. through preaching and being a personal witness to our national leaders. In addition, I feel the leading of the Lord to hold meetings throughout America in small struggling independent Baptist churches. In recent years I have been involved in politics. I was elected to attend two Republican National Conventions. I also campaigned for (J.S. Congress in the 4th district here in South Carolina in 1998 and 2000, but I was defeated in the primaries. During these years in politics, my wife and I served the Lord by giving out the gospel to people. People were saved as a result and we thank the Lord.

    America was founded upon biblical principles. Our founding forefathers were men of great character who fought for religious freedoms. Today our religious freedoms are being attacked on every side. Many of our nation's political leaders are men who are guided by the prevailing politically correct attitudes which have morally bankrupted this once great nation.

    Nations rise and fall on leadership. Sad to say, America's leadership in the world today has sunk to an alltime low ebb. Why has this happened? Millions of unborn babies are butchered every year in the name of convenience.

    Homosexuals are allowed to promote their wicked lifestyle throughout America's public school system, while the Bible cannot be read in school and prayer was kicked out many years ago. I believe America is under the judging hand of God because of these atrocities. (Psalms 9:17 says, "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.")

    The problem is that we have too many politicians who are more concerned about the next election than about what's right to do. The only lasting solution for America is to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. Acts 4:12 says, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

    My wife and I will be going to Washington D.C. for a few days in 4-6 weeks to initiate the ministry that the Lord has given me concerning our national leaders. We will be returning to Washington every quarter for a few days to be a witness for the Lord until I raise full support and then I will enlarge this ministry for the honor and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. Edmund Burke once said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." We want to do something.

    I am now doing deputation to raise my support. I am going out from Target America Ministries, a ministry of Freedom Baptist Church, under the direction of Pastor Jerry Clark. If you have a burden for our nation's government and would like to reach elected officials at the local, state, or federal level, and you believe it would be the Lord's will to know more about the ministry, please call me at (864) 322-8711, or call my Pastor. We would love to come to your church and present this ministry.
