DTMG 2021 mission information

 What is Declaring Truth @ Mardi Gras?

Declaring Truth @ Mardi Gras is an annual 4-day Biblical evangelism conference & Mardi Gras mission trip organized by Declaring Truth Ministries to edify believers in sound doctrine and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to thousands of Mardi Gras revelers in the French Quarter.  Every year, about 1 million people come to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras.  Surely, "the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few"! (Lk. 10:2)  Men will be strengthened in the Spirit as we enjoy 4 days of prayer, teaching, fellowship, and life-changing street evangelism ministry together.

Laborers:

We are praying for 15-20 men* of God to commit to the entire 4 day mission.  To protect our time of intimate prayer and fellowship, conference messages are not open to the public, and are offered only for those who have registered.  (*Only men are invited to participate at this time.)

Speakers

Al Baker is ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America and has been in the gospel ministry for over thirty-eight years. A 1974 graduate of the University of Alabama, he received his Master of Divinity degree from Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi in 1981. He received Doctorate of Divinity in Evangelism and World Missions in August 2017 from Whitefield Theological Seminary, Lakeland, Florida.

Al’s ministry base of operation is Birmingham, Alabama, serving as an Evangelist with Reformed  Evangelistic Fellowship (formerly known as PEF). Al is the author of seven books, Under Obligation: Recapturing a Reformed Evangelistic Zeal; Preaching at Pea River: Living In Light of Eternity; Evangelistic Sermons on WDRC FM, Hartford, Connecticut;  Evangelistic Preaching in the 21st Century; Seeking a Revival Culture; Revival Prayer, and Essays on Revival. Prior to his present ministry, Al was the organizing pastor of Christ Community Presbyterian Church, West Hartford, Connecticut, serving there for nine years; and before that he was the pastor for ten years of Golden Isles Presbyterian Church, St. Simons Island, Georgia. Al has long been actively involved in foreign missions to Central and South America, Africa, India, Great Britain, Europe, Japan, and Indonesia, also traveling extensively around the United States preaching in churches and in the streets. Al and Wini have been married since 1975 and have three grown sons, three daughter-in-laws, and twelve grandchildren.

 

Al seeks to promote a revival culture in churches by leading revival prayer weekends and preaching Bible conferences on revival and evangelistic themes. He also is working to raise up the next generation of revival and evangelistic preachers like Samuel Davies, the great 18th century Presbyterian preacher from Richmond, Virginia.

"​The Lord saved me from sin and misery in October of 1979.  In his wisdom he gave me a godly wife and I labored for many years  in insurance and real  estate.  However through a series of upheavals the Lord redirected me to attend seminary (RTS- Orlando.)  After graduation I eventually started a Classical Christian school in Orlando. I taught humanities for 17 years until the Lord called me in 2005 to full-time evangelism and raising up of other street preachers.  Now based in Raleigh NC, I still have my wonderful wife Patte as well as 3 grown sons and 5 grandchildren.  I still spend my time preaching Christ across the US on university campuses and inviting other younger Reformed preachers to participate.  We must return once again to the days when Reformed men declared (with open Bibles ) the historic Gospel.  The “certain sound” of a sovereign God who has graciously sent His Son to save lost sinners.  “Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear!”  - Scott Smith
