Dr. Tony Evans says God has another plan celebrating 40 years of faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Abbott, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the alternative today on the alternative are taking a trip back in time back over four decades ago to September 1979 were an enthusiastic young pastor named Tony Evans is preaching each Sunday morning to a small but growing congregation meeting in a borrowed Fellowship Hall. Dr. Evans recalls how that fledgling Dallas community of believers got their start. I was taking a course and Jean gets caught sharpening the focus of the church about making the church relevant in the new world that we were in at that time. At the same time Ruben Connor who was head of the organization that was church planning, challenge me to start a church in light of some of the ideas I had about doing some things differently with church in a predominately African-American context. All this is sitting at the same time. That's when Jean gets who was the professor was also pastor said if you want to start a church. Our church will support you and select the prayer and thought we decided to start Oakland Bible Fellowship while I was working my doctoral degree Dallas seminary on June 6, 1976 we took a Bible study that we were having in our home that was 10 people in the house would begin Oakland Bible Fellowship with the idea of having a biblically centered church that was relevantly addressing the issues of the day and in the community or the next five years saw more and more demand for their cassette tape recordings of Tony's down to earth, no holds barred biblical messages.
His sermons resonated not only with his congregants, but also with many people listening on local radio stations in the surrounding area.
After prayerful consideration the urban alternative was established in 1981, with the hope of impacting a wider audience with these life-changing messages today were going to revisit a message. Tony preached prior to the launch of the national ministry and, fittingly, it's about what we as Christians do in the long haul, not just how we respond when God is blessing us doing the miraculous. But how we think and act in the sometimes unexciting times of day-to-day life.
As Tony puts it, when the miracles become the mundane. Let's join a much younger Tony Evans addressing those early church members with a lesson he's drawn from the book of Haggai. An important lesson that remains relevant to each of us even today in 2021.
Some will you miracle miracles in the immediate when miracles become you as well.
