AT THE SAME TIME OUR MINISTRY CONTINUED

 

A HIGHLIGHT FOR THIS QUARTER WAS GETTING TO PREACH ON “BIBLICAL EVANGELISM” AT THE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS OF TEXAS EVANGELISM CONFERENCE IN FRISCO, TX ON MARCH 1.

DARRELL WAS PRESENTED THE EVANGELISM AWARD PICTURED AND DESCRIBED BELOW

 

THE W. A. CRISWELL LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FOR PASTORAL EVANGELISM

PRESENTED BY DON CASS, DIRECTOR OF EVANGELISM, SBTC

 

This award tonight goes to a man whom I consider to be the greatest personal soul winner I have ever known.  He answered the call to preach on May 17, 1953 and preached his first sermon at the Salem Baptist Church in Big Spring, Texas.  The church had a young Pastor by the name of Roy Fish leading them.  Since that first sermon, the man we are honoring has preached almost every Sunday since.  His first pastorate was Lakeview Baptist Church in Big Spring and he was 18 years old when he accepted that Pastorate.

 

During this man’s pastoral years, he and his wife started three new Churches and served in small Churches to the mega Church. Every Church he pastored gave strongly through the Cooperative Program and involved members in on site mission service as well.  For example when he pastored FBC Pasadena, Texas, he led the Church to give 20% through the Cooperative Program, 5% to Associational Missions and additional gifts for other Churches and mission projects. That church grew from 600 to more than 3000 in eight years under this man’s leadership.  In addition the Church baptized 300 to 500 per year.  The last church he pastored was Dauphin Way Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama.  From there he became Vice-President for Evangelism at the SBC Home Mission Board.  He is the author of 10 books.

 

During his ministry he has seen 33,953 people profess faith in Jesus, baptized more than 7,000, preached 547 revivals, performed 188 weddings, and preached 371 funerals.  The man receiving the W. A. Criswell Lifetime Achievement Award for Pastoral Evangelism is Dr. Darrell W. Robinson.

 

MINISTRY THIS QUARTER – JANUARY THROUGH MARCH

 

BRAZIL  Odilon set up a Vida Total da Igreja booth (Total Church Life) at the Brazilian Baptist Convention. Darrell helped operate the booth by consulting with pastors and leaders and signing books they purchased. Several of Darrell’s books are published in Portuguese.  Darrell spoke at the Convention resulting in many stopping by the booth and scheduling Seminars for Odilon. Then, the Brazilian Foreign Mission Board invited Darrell to come back in August and train their Foreign Missionaries in Total Church Life Strategy.

 

Odilon, our Brazilian Coordinator, is doing a fabulous job. Many are coming to Christ through TCL Ministries in Brazil.

 

ABILENE, TX   It was great to be with Pastor Chuck Reynolds and Grace Baptist Church again. Chuck has a great testimony of his conversion and call. He played pro-football as center for the Cleveland Browns. God is using him today to reach many people for Christ. God blessed as I preached for the Cross Timbers Association Evangelism Conference and DOM Dwain Clower.

 

SULPHUR SPRINGS, TX  After the Evangelism Conf. in Frisco, TX, Kathy and I drove to meet with pastors and leaders in Sulphur Springs to overview Synergistic Evangelism. Pastor David Bagwell and the Association invited me back in April to lead a full Seminar.

 

MEMORIAL BAPTIST, SPRING, TX  This is  our home church. It was a joy to preach in our pastor’s absence. God blessed with decisions for Christ.

 

DEERBROOK BAPTIST, HUMBLE, TX  What an alive church one that is with the joy of the Spirit!  Pastor Brian McFarlain is a dynamic, Bible preaching, evangelistic pastor. The church is witnessing and growing. It was a privilege to spend a Sunday training the church in Synergistic Evangelism.

 

Saturday I will leave for Calvary Baptist, FT. Morgan, CO for an eight day Revival and Seminars in the Association. Please pray for us.

 

We have a very full Summer schedule which can be seen on our website, www.totalchurchlife.net.

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS FOR US AND SUPPORT FOR TOTAL CHURCH LIFE MINISTRIES!

 

OUR LOVE AND PRAYERS,
