Keep Vibrant Preaching Alive!
Listening to passionate, skilled preachers deepens our knowledge of God’s Word and stirs us to spiritual growth. Also, the process of listening to Spirit-filled messages serves as a model of how to better communicate the truths of Scripture.
Let’s perpetuate the great preaching of the past! The recent GARBC Conference highlighted the preaching of former national representatives via a video presentation of the GARBC Audio Legacy Project. See Audio Legacy Video. Won’t you consider donating a gift to see reel-to-reel tapes of tremendous preaching turned into digital files for all to enjoy?
