Heroes of My Faith

Heroes of My Faith

I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.
— Jeremiah 5:5 KJV

I am concerned that we are replacing the old-fashioned preaching of the Gospel with drama presentations, music programs or watered-down teaching. Preaching is God's chosen method for proclaiming the Truth of the Bible. 

My life was changed by the preaching of the Gospel! The night I was saved, there was preaching. There was preaching the day I consecrated my life to Christ. It was in a preaching service when God burdened my heart to work in the bus ministry. The day I surrendered to preaching the Gospel, there was preaching. My decision to go to Bible college came during a preaching service. Every major decision of my life happened during a preaching service!

This section of our website is dedicated to the preaching of men of God who influenced my life personally. These men of God and their powerful messages lit a fire in my soul that still burns today! It is my prayer that these messages will set your heart on fire as well! They truly are "Heroes of My Faith!"

This page is a work in progress. Check back often as we add more preachers and their sermons.

Evangelist Carl Brandenburg “Dad”

Evangelist Carl Brandenburg is a local church evangelist who has ministered to children since 1968. He is my Dad, and is the best Christian I know. His life of faithfulness, compassion and sacrifice showed me what a real Christian life looks like. I was saved in his ministry in 1972. I learned how to serve the
Lord by working with him. I am forever in his debt for my faith.

Dr. Joe M. Boyd

Dr. Joe M. Boyd was a local church evangelist with a ministry that spanned 65 years!

His ministry focused on getting sinners saved and baptized, the saved busy for God, and churches focused on souls. His passion was revival. He would rather preach a revival in a small church than preach in a big-name conference.
