We invited Dr. Reccord to speak on a Sunday morning with an evangelistic focus. During the service he clearly communicated the gospel. When the invitation time came we had many who made decisions. God used him to draw the net on families and individuals we had been working on for weeks. He did a wonderful job of calling people to a decision and laying the gospel out for people to respond. I highly recommend him for any evangelistic focus for your church. He will draw the net, and you will see results.
I am incredibly grateful for the ministry of Bob Reccord. Not only has he been a dear friend and mentor to me personally, but he is also a visionary leader and remarkably gifted preacher. Through personal stories, practical insights, and powerful application, Bob preaches the Word of God with boldness and conviction. Beyond that, God has gifted Bob with an ability to draw the net during the invitation so people positively respond to the message of the gospel. God has used Bob greatly to impact this world for eternity and I cannot recommend his ministry highly enough. Use him at your church or ministry event - you won't be disappointed!
I am most excited to commend the ministry of Bob and Cheryl Reccord. Several adjectives come to mind as I think about the marriage conference they recently conducted at our church: biblical, energetic, relevant, versatile, fun, moving ... just to name a few. The Reccords' ministry with us was a turning point for many marriages. All of us came away refreshed in the lifelong journey of marriage. Bob and Cheryl Reccord are two of God's choice messengers to families in these perilous days.
It has been my privilege to know and work with Bob Reccord for nearly 13 years and to commend him to you today as one of God’s choice servants. I served with Bob as he chaired the Implementation Task force of the Southern Baptist Convention that was charged with implementing the conventions “Covenant for a New Century”. It was our challenge to restructure the convention to achieve greater effectiveness and efficiencies and we moved into the 21st Century. It was a daunting task that called on Bob’s leadership skills, networking skills and his uncompromising commitment to Christ and His Kingdom. From nearly 13 years of friendship and a close working relationship with Bob, I know him to be a Godly man, proven leader, dynamic communicator, serious reader, loving family man and faithful friend. In the years we worked together I never saw him compromise his integrity, or wavier from his passion to see people know Christ. Bob is creative and innovative as a communicator. In a culture inundated with communication Bob has sought to stay culturally sensitive without compromising his beliefs or his goal to communicate a clear Biblical message. He uses contemporary and contextual approaches to communicate with any particular audience an uncompromised, relevant message. His writings, messages and teachings are biblical based, culturally relevant and always focused on the life changing message of Christ. You will be blessed by the ministry of Bob Reccord as you read him or hear him in your search to move to the next level in your walk, your witness and your work.
Recently, the Lord prompted me to prepare our church for Easter through five special Monday nights preceding Easter. Bob Reccord was our first guest preacher in these five meetings. Our members and many who chose to attend from churches in five surrounding counties. are still raving about the evening. Tuesday morning, Bob stayed over and hosted local ministry leaders of the area for a special challenge. Our pastors still phone me and beg for more of that type of teaching. Few men have loved me like Bob has in giving himself to the church I serve and the community I am trying to reach for Christ. Great preacher, wonderful communicator, dynamic storyteller, humble giving servant...all are attributes of this faithful man. However, nothing I could say would surpass that this man loves his Savior, his wife, his children, his call and his friends. What a joy it is to be a friend of Bob Reccord's….and I know I am just one of thousands, and so glad to be one.
Our church just completed an eight-week series on Made To Count and we have seen life-changing results! People are talking about how their view of their work and chosen profession has changed. Commitments have been made to improve attitudes, strengthen work ethics, and become stronger more intentional witnesses in the workplace. Some have been motivated to begin Bible studies and prayer groups at their place of work. Overall the Made to Count series challenged our people to take it to the next level in their Christian walk right where they are...right now!
