While training for the Lord’s service at Ambassador Baptist College it was evident that the Lord’s hand was on Brother Richard. He was named the recipient of the prestigious Hand Revival Ministries Scholarship given to the student showing the greatest promise in Evangelism and he was chosen by the faculty to preach in the baccalaureate service.
From this promising beginning the Lord has continued to bless Determined Ministries. Since graduating in May of 1996 the Lord has opened doors for Richard to conduct over 650 multi-day, local church revivals, in 43 states and 9 countries. The Lord has use Richard’s Bible filled “preaching of the cross” to convict thousands of their need for salvation.
2015 is the thirteenth straight year in which the Lord has allowed Determined Ministries to schedule over 40 revivals. The Lord has also bountifully blessed in that the Harpers have seen people come to Christ in almost every meeting so far this year.
In August of 2012 the Harpers followed the Lord’s leading and relocated Determined Ministries to King, North Carolina. We are excited to call Calvary Baptist Church in King our home church. Our pastor, Kevin Broyhill, is a blessing to our ministry and to Brother Harper personally. We look forward to many years of partnering with our new home church.
The 2016 schedule is comfortably full and is already shaping up to be the busiest year yet in full-time Evangelism for Determined Ministries and 2017 continues to fill up. As they go forward in the future. The desire of Determined Ministries is to serve the Lord while serving fundamental Pastors in their local churches.
