RichardRichard Harper’s Testimony

I was saved at the age of eight and called to preach at the age of thirteen. In 1981 I went to Tennessee Temple University excited about preparing to serve the Lord. Soon, however, I found myself following a secular career rather than focusing on serving God. Even during this time of backsliding, God was preparing me for His service by giving me leadership and training opportunities. In 1994, after a personal rededication, I began attending Ambassador Baptist College. During this time the Lord allowed me to serve as assistant pastor of a local church and to maintain an active pulpit ministry. My consuming desire is that I will remain a focused and faithful servant for God to use.

 

KimberlyKimberly Harper’s Testimony

I grew up in a pastor’s home and received Jesus Christ as my personal savior at the age of seven. At an early age I surrendered my life to God. It was through His guidance that I made life’s most important decision. In my desire to serve Him in whatever way He chose, I attended Tennessee Temple University in 1983. It was there that God led me to marry Richard, with the desire to serve out Lord together in full-time service. After a period as a lukewarm Christian, my husband and I rededicated ourselves to the cause of Christ and surrendered to His will. His leading brought us to Ambassador Baptist College for preparation in the field of service that God has called us into full-time evangelism.

 

CharityCharity’s Testimony

The Lord bless our lives in a special way on September 9, 1997 when Kimberly gave birth to Charity Ann Harper. On March 17, 2002, as Kimberly was sitting in Richard’s office, Charity came in and said “Mommy, I need to get saved.” When Kim asked, “why do you need to get saved?” Charity responded “Because I will go to Hell if I don’t.” Although Charity had already been in 75 “Kid’s Clubs” and was very familiar with the plan of salvation, Kimberly went through the “Roman’s Road” very carefully with her. Charity then, in simple child-like faith, trusted Christ as her Savior.In 2009 Charity surrendered her life to serve the Lord in full-time ministry and is seeking the Lord’s leading for her life. What a blessing it has been for Richard and Kim to watch as Charity grows physically and Spiritually.
