Learn about the pastors who risked everything to stand up for liberty and lead their congregations to battle against the British Empire in the War for Independence.

I am pleased to announce 10 very special events that we have scheduled for different areas of the state.  During the week of August 24 through the 29th we are bringing in Pastor Dan Fisher and his presentation titled Bringing Back The Black Robed Regiment. In this historical presentation, Pastor Dan brings to life our Christian heritage and forgotten lessons of our past, while encouraging pastors and Christian lay people to be active stewards of God’s gift of self-government.

Pastor Dan gives the history of American pastors during the Revolutionary War and shows how they were a major force in the fight against tyranny and for liberty.  The British hated these pastors and gave them the title of the “Black Robed Regiment.”  Dan illustrates that had it not been for the preachers’ strong stand in the 18th century, America may not have come to fruition.  He believes that if today’s preachers do not return to the faith, courage and boldness of the Founders and begin to take a strong stand, America may not survive.

Dan believes that we are facing a crisis much the same as the one faced by the country in 1776.  He says the time is now for Christians to respond to God’s call and fully engage the culture before we lose our religious liberties and our opportunity to freely promote and practice our faith.

Dan Fisher is the Senior Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Yukon, Oklahoma.  He is a state representative from Oklahoma. He was one of the first original Pulpit Freedom Pastors. He is on the boards of Bott Christian Radio Network, Reclaiming America for Christ, and Vision America, a ministry of evangelist Rick Scarborough based in Houston, Texas.  He is a published author, historian, and has a national speaking ministry.
