Dr. Rick Flanders will be the guest speaker for special meetings at the Gospel Baptist Church, 6235 Clingan Road, Poland, on Feb. 17 to 22. Dr. Flanders is a traveling evangelist who speaks on topics related to spiritual revival. For 36 years, he served churches in Michigan as a pastor until September of 2007, when he entered the field of itinerant preaching. Flanders preaches on issues that impact individuals and churches.
Flanders is a writer as well as a preacher, having written for national religious periodicals for nearly 20 years. He has also written a book on revival entitled, "Back to Normal." Hundreds of people receive a new article by him through e-mail every month. He regards himself as "a Christian fundamentalist" who defines the Christian faith in terms of certain fundamental doctrines, among them the infallibility of the Bible. His traveling ministry is directed at encouraging Christian believers in having spiritual revival in their own lives and in winning others to Christ.
