I have been a Southern Baptist pastor for 25 years, and an evangelist
for four years (not consecutively). Currently, I specialize in doing revival and evangelistic meetings within a
50-mile radius of Milton, Florida. That translates into many benefits for local churches.
Most pastors recognize the need for revival, and the importance of using the gift of the evangelist/revivalist. For a number of good reasons, churches often have fewer revivals and evangelistic
meetings than they want. I would like to offer a solution for each of these problems,
and then offer my services to you and your church.
Problem One: The cost is prohibitive, especially for smaller
Solution: I will preach a revival or evangelistic meeting
at your church for $75 per meeting (preaching service), or on a love offering basis.
I pay all of my own expenses when I am speaking at churches with 50 miles of Milton, Florida, expect for restaurant meals when I am invited out.
Problem Two: Smaller churches feel embarrassed that they cannot pay an evangelist well.
Solution: Do not be embarrassed. The cost for my services for large churches is the same as for small churches: seventy-five dollars
per service or a love offering, whichever you select.
Problem Three: Evangelists often do more harm to the church
Solution: I have been a Southern Baptist senior pastor
for more than 25 years, and an evangelist for four years. I understand the needs
and sensitivities of the pastorate, and will not damage your church by speaking inappropriately.
Problem Four: Housing and meal arrangements create difficulties
for the church.
I return home each night, and cover my own auto expense, and cost of meals (except when I am invited
out to eat).
Problem Five: Evangelists are, sometimes, not relevant
to the conditions and needs of the church.
Solution: I am willing to speak with the pastor about
church needs; however, even when I do not, there has never been a claim that my preaching is not relevant.
I am new to the Milton area and as of March
3, 2005 just beginning my ministry here.
My calendar is, therefore, open. Give me a call. I designed my web
site to be brief and to the point. Please read each page (accessed near the top left) to gain a good idea of my ministry.
