GLENDALE AND DR. RICHARD P. OLDHAM
What an amazing weekend we had. It was a real privilege and honor to be with Pastor Richard Oldham and the people of Glendale Baptist Church. It was a soul winning training weekend. I had the privilege to teach and preach five (5) sessions.
Glendale has been a soul winning church for the 50+ years that Dr. Oldham has been pastor. He is from the old school (the Bible school). You could call it church the way it used to be. Church the way it ought to be.
This is the church where I first served the Lord in full time Christian service. The church where Dr. R. G. Lee preached my ordination service. I count it a joy to make an investment there training and motivating a new generation of Soul Winners. God gave us a great meeting with dozens of folks committing themselves to share their faith in Christ with others.
The SOUL WINNING COURSE workbook was a real blessing. I will be glad to send one to any pastor who would like one with the answer keys if any one would like. The course is based on the evangelism course I taught on several occasions at Shawnee Baptist College.
RAISING FUNDS TEACHING STEWARDSHIP AT LIGHTHOUSE BAPTIST CHURCH
PASTOR NATHAN LANG put together a great weekend. Beginning with a Sweetheart Banquet where Dr. Ed and Mrs. Sheila Snider brought their famous skit and lecture
“WHAT WERE YOU THINKING” teaching the difference in the way men and women think. It was followed by a brief but pointed and helpful message by Bro. ED.
Sunday was a great stewardship emphasis day speaking on Joyful Giving, Commitment and 4 Reasons Not To Give. When the day ended and Bro. Lang took the commitments we were all amazed that they had gone over their victory goal in money given that night. Then there was the 2 year commitments that would bring in additional thousands of dollars of funds. More pledges and commitments will be taken over the next week or so. I commend Bro. Nathan Lang and his dear wife Jenny along with many good helpers in the church for a job well done that included many weeks of pre-planning and hard work.
Pray for Pastor Lang and Lighthouse Baptist Church. This young church has seen amazing growth and need a permanent facility to meet in. They will be using the funds raised to help in this project. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated.
