Do You Know Pastor Bennie Sutherland?

Do You Know Pastor Bennie Sutherland?

Bro. Bennie Sutherland is our Pastor and has been since early in 1989. Bro. Bennie has pastored for well over 40 years and has pastored Dryden Road Pentecostal Church since January 1978, over 34 years.

When we visited Dryden Rd. in 1988 and heard Bro. Bennie preach we were hooked. It took us about a year to make the transition but we knew very early on that Bro. Bennie Sutherland was our Pastor.

It was his preaching that caught our attention and has proven to be profitable so many times through the years for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and instruction in righteousness. Thank God for a man who studies the Word, prays for guidance and delivers the message with skill and compassion.

Compassion sums up Bro. Bennie so well. He is known across the country as a man that will preach the Word of God without fear or favor. He has been in demand for many years to preach revivals and campmeetings all over the country. He is some more kind of preacher but his heart of compassion is what will always define him for me. Bro. Bennie Sutherland has the heart of a Pastor.

The Boggs family will forever be indebted to Bro. Bennie Sutherland and his Godly wife Sis. Jane for their love, kindness, generosity and friendship. We are so very thankful that God brought them into our lives. It is very possible and highly probable that there would be no Boggs Family Ministries if not for Bro. Bennie Sutherland being used of God in our lives.

Do you know Bro. Bennie Sutherland? He is definitely worth getting to know...

Citronelle Tent Revival Tuesday Night

We had another great day of tent revival in Citronelle. Good crowd, good service and good altar service. The community is responding well and we are praising God for it.

Although we are only having church at night, a lady prayed for salvation under the tent Tuesday morning. I was praying when she came under the tent inquiring about service time. She was under heavy conviction so after a few moments of conversation I told her there was no sense in waiting for service when she could get saved right then.

She knelt down at a chair and poured her heart out to God for 15-20 minutes. I was so full of joy I was about to climb the tent pole. She left a puddle of tears in the chair and I was crying for quite a while even after she left. It absolutely tore me up! Praise God!

That is the whole reason I am out here. There are numbers of people that are not going to come into our churches and I feel a responsibility to go after them. I want to do my best to take church and the Gospel message to as many as possible.

Yes, it would be easier and cheaper to show up at churches and preach revival and move on but God has directed us to this. I do not know how long it will last or how long I can hold up but I am enjoying watching God work.

Here are a few pictures from last night. I really like the pictures at twilight. I hope you are not getting tired of the pictures.
