ROME, Ga. (BNC)— Preacher Michael Farris shared reasons in his sermon July 9 why the gospel is glorious. He offered these reasons to the congregation as a “study to share with every soul.”

One of the most interesting reasons Michael gives for why the gospel is glorious is because “it is easy to obey.”

The use of a sermon to explicitly provide evangelistic material to a congregation is not something that one sees frequently.

The Oak Hill congregation counts 400 in attendance on Sundays.


Randal and his wife Vicki have lived and worked in Brazil since Nov. 1984. They have three children, two daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren. He enjoys his new home office.
