If you are like me, at least once or twice a year, you may be embattled with something that is overwhelming, or tragic happening in your life. It may be the loss of a loved one, or simply a bad day at work that ended in a very serious situation. We all have those types of struggles if we are human…and I suggest that would be every one of us…Read More
One of the most common questions that we get at The Gospel of Christ during Field Rep visits and sometimes feedback from the web and congregations that support the program goes something like this…
“How can we make our evangelism efforts more productive…and simple?”
This question is an absolutely excellent question, but on the surface, the heading of this article really implies the answer rhetorically.
Is evangelism a simple task? The short answer…Read More
It was a beautiful sunny Friday morning in Middle Tennessee. The date - April 10, 2009. The calendar would read “Good Friday,” and provided a little more opportunity for many to be off from work and enjoying what began as a wonderfully crisp spring morning…Read More
The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” rings so true with the caption photo of this article. If you did not see the picture, it is a very interesting picture of a “worker bee” dying. You and I have probably both seen this scene before. Maybe it was a bee that someone swatted, or maybe an insect spray took their last breath. Whatever the case, the worker bee is on its way to never working again…Read More
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in my yard and seeing all of the bright and beautiful colors of the yard and ornamental trees in bloom. But wait just a minute…sometimes some of those blooms that are flying through the air aren’t as pretty as they may seem!Read More
As I sit in my office today catching up from the weekend, the monthly newsletter article was not getting written very quickly. Why? I was sitting here thinking about all of the things that I could be doing on such a beautiful sunny day. Procrastination. But, not only was procrastination working on me, deception was too!
What do I mean? In our area, we have a monthly ministers luncheon to have some fellowship and share news with each other about local congregations and events, etc. I stepped outside at about 11:45 to make my way to the 12:00 meeting and the sunshine immediately became an enemy! Let’s go back a few minutes before in order to understand why…

Change? Why are we changing? What changes are coming?
Well, you know, the old saying is “change is inevitable.” That holds true in most every case in our daily lives; however we need to remember that God’s Word never changes! Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever! (Hebrews 13:8). Not so much in the world of television and Media….
We were notified earlier this year that we would be losing our network portal of AngelOne on Dish Network. That caused a frenzy at our offices in the fact that we would be using about 10 million potential households. We had to change! Whether we wanted to or not, change was coming. After weeks of negotiations, discussions, seeking additional funding, we thought we had the replacement in place. We found out just this week that the network that had offered a slot decided that we were not a good fit for them. This notification caused us to begin the wheels rolling all over again…and unfortunately, we do not have a broadcast time set for February at this time for Dish Network. We will work diligently to secure a new portal there as quickly as we can.
In the meantime, we were able to make a few tweaks and changes to some of our other broadcast portals and we will have some exciting announcements coming soon for those as well.
Satan may have hindered us just a bit, butRead More
Oftentimes, when we reach out to a congregation or even when we are working with our existing relationships, the question comes up “what is a field rep?” Sometimes, we may get a bit assumptive in thinking that everyone already knows what this means…when in reality, many may not.
Allow me to give a simple explanation, if I may. Our Field Reps are seasoned gospel preachers that have a desire to spread the gospel message with others. Sometimes these preachers have retired from regular pulpit duties, or maybe they work a full-time job outside of ministering and do not get the opportunity to do what they love and feel a calling for - preaching the gospel! Our field repsRead More
Effective January 31, 2019, the AngelOne Network will be discontinuing broadcast. This means that our program will no longer be broadcast on this channel on Dish Network. We are working to quickly find alternatives, and will keep our website and social media pages updated with any new information.
Remember, you can always catch us streaming on all devices!Read More
As I drove in to the office at TGOC this morning, I saw our third or fourth showing of some of that frozen precipitation falling on the windshield. Now, as you may know, the offices of The Gospel of Christ are in McMinnville, Tennessee, so some of you are probably saying, “he doesn’t even know what snow is!” And to an extent you are right! We don’t get a lot of bad snow storms and ice here that last or are in comparison to some in the northern parts of the United States, or some other countries. Then again, some of our readers may say, “what’s snow?”Read More
This one comes to us through the US Mail…
This excerpt is from one of our viewers/students of the Word.
"My name is William...and I have been so blessed from your ministry sending the free information that I have requested. It has enabled me to share the Gospel with others..."Read More
This month, the Field Rep update hits a little more personal than most. In this article, I want to tell you of a personal experience that I was able to be a part of in more ways than one.
On October 10, 2018, a beast of a storm hit the Panhandle of Florida with mighty fierce. Mexico Beach was almost at the center of the crossing of the eye of the hurricane and took a catastrophic hit to the town, the community, the infrastructure, but not to the church. Please allow me to explain…
This area was devastated for more than 90 miles north and probably close to the same east and west. In the direct path of the storm was the meeting place of one of the supporting congregations of TGOC -Read More
Now that summer events are winding down, area gospel meetings and revivals have mostly finished, and many congregations are making plans for the rest of the year, exciting times happen for our Field Rep program as it starts to get very busy!
We try our very best to schedule our visits with any and every congregation that we can, and sometimes that can be a bit hectic in finding the best time. We appreciate all that reach out to us and allow us to visitRead More
We have a man who has been through much and has been seeking Him for years. Went to a bunch of non-denominationals until he found you on YouTube. He was so frustrated with the state of the religious world that he was actually making preparations to move himself and his wife there to assemble. Your preaching convicted him and he began coming here regularly seeking truth and love. He was immersed 2 weeks ago and we are helping equip him for the battle!
Your servant in Christ,
Field Rep Program
It has been a very exciting few months from the Field Rep department and especially the Electronic Media Ministry side of The Gospel of Christ program.
With the recent additions of Jimmy Pitchford, Robert Lambert, and Samuel Hostetter, our Field Rep team has expanded into more areas. These men are doing a wonderful job of getting in contact with area congregations and scheduling meetings,Read More
