MANSFIELD, Tex. (BNc) — Two churches will host a week-long tent meeting in the greater Fort Worth area beginning today.

The West Mansfield church, together with the Lindsay, Okla., congregation will hold the meeting June 7-12.

The tent is located at 7220 FM 1187 in Mansfield.

The 2009 campaign theme is “Christ is Mine: All to Him I now resign.”

Lessons each night at 7:30 pm will include these topics:

  • The Gospel of Christ is Mine (all men are responsible to render obedience to the gospel).
  • The Blood of Christ is Mine (all men have access to the benefits of the shed blood of Jesus).
  • The Church of Christ is Mine (the church of Christ is the one body).
  • The Mind of Christ is Mine (becoming like Christ is the goal of Christianity).
  • The Love of Christ is Mine (the love of Christ constrains the disciple).
  • The Marks of Christ are Mine (endurance under trial is evidence of true discipleship).

Each night Brant Stubblefield and Rick Popejoy will be preaching at the tent.

The campaigns are also noted for the beautiful singing. Some of the best song leaders in the Fort Worth area will lead singing.

Another noted feature of the tent meeting is the fifteen minutes offered to any denominational preacher who comes to the tent to justify his church’s existence from the Bible and the questions taken each night by the speakers on topics of salvation.

The campaign began Saturday, June 6, when saints from Colorado, Oklahoma, Missouri as well as other parts of Texas converged upon Mansfield and knocked doors to invite people of all races and religions to study the Bible.

There are 50,000 souls in Mansfield alone.



  1. The local preacher in a small town (Belle, MO population 1300) gave this report of the campaign in that town. We only knocked doors one day.

    “So far we have had four baptisms. We have set up 17 Bible studies and have carried several of those out to completion. We have one woman who says she intends to be baptized tonight. We have several couples who are thinking about it. One couple says that they are going to start attending with us. I studied with a woman yesterday who is very close to becoming a Christian. We have the potential of having no less than 12 baptisms before this whole thing is over. Our meeting ends tonight, and we have had two very powerful lessons each evening by Rick and Brant. We have about 50 contacts, call backs, etc. Please keep us in your prayers.”

    In Christ Jesus

  2. Your brethren in Mansfield ask for your prayers as they continue to reach out to their community. The Lord has blessed them with 63 studies and over 100 additional contacts in their neighborhood. Thus far, eight precious souls have been robbed out of the kingdom of darkness and are now experiencing the marvelous light.

    One of those was a young Baptist mother who left the tent mad that we thought that she was lost. She brought a friend with her the next day to ask the question, why? Why did we think that she was lost? After pointing out that she had a “timing” issue with Jesus in Mark 16:16, she and her friend were baptized for (with a view towards) the remission of their sins.

    Please continue to remember these new converts in your prayers.


  3. 7000 doors knocked; 120 call backs; 74 studies set up; 16 baptisms thus far. Please continue to prayer for your brethren at West Mansfield.

  4. The West Mansfield brethren would like to report another soul brought into the kingdom of God’s Dear Son. A women with five children obeyed the gospel by being baptized on Monday night. They are also working hard build up these new Christians in their faith. Please pray for these babes in Christ.

    The Oklahoma team that came home did not stop setting up Bible studies just because they were off campaign. Five Bible studies have been set up in the last couple of days in Marlow and Lindsay.
