    Default FBF Former President John Vaughn

    [ame="http://www.amazon.com/More-Precious-Than-Gold-Familys/dp/0800755197"]Amazon.com: More Precious Than Gold: The Fiery Trial of a Family's Faith: John Vaughn, Brenda Vaughn: Books[/ame]

    The thread about Sexton speaking at the fbf meeting got me thinking about the fbf meeting I went to a few years ago. I think it was in June of 2005. One of the main speakers was Mike Peletier (sp.) Have any of you heard of him? He is the son in law of Ron Comfort - Ambassador Baptist College. I first met Bro. Mike when I was a teenager; he came to BBC in Charlotte with Dr. Comfort and preached to the teens during the week that Dr. Comfort was having a revival at our church. He took me out soul winning on one of my very first experiences with it. I had a great time and I really liked him a lot. While I was in Bible college he wrote to me and really encouraged me a great deal. I was excited when I heard he was preaching at the fbf meeting, but I had never heard of the fbf. I went and heard him preach and had a real good time especially at the lunch meeting - love to eat and listen to preaching at the same time!

    Anywho, the book, More Precious Than Gold, was a real blessing to me. My mom loaned it to me and I read it all the way through in about 3 days. It was really good. Pastor Vaughn's wife and young daughter were burned in a house fire many years ago and this book tells of what happened and how they made it through the subsequent struggles of life and the years of healing. What a strong family. I just baught my own copy from Amazon for less than $5! :-)

    I don't think Dr. Vaughn is any longer the pres of FBF and I don't know if I'll ever go to another one of their meetings, but I really enjoyed the one I did attend. Perhaps if they have any meetings around here I could go, but we'll see!

    If you like to read at all, get this book. You will like it and if you allow Him to, God will use it to encourage you. I know He used it in my life. You can find several used copies on Amazon for under $5! One was only $0.74 (but 3.99 for shipping!)

    Take care everyone.

    I have known the Vaughn's for many years. He is one of my favorites to listen to on sermonaudio.com. He has basically resigned as senior pastor of his church and a number of other responsibilities to care for his wife who has downgraded rapidly in the past number of months from complications brought about by the fire. He is truly a remarkable man.

    I've known Mike Pelletier since he was a relatively young child (1981). Took him and a couple of his brothers fishing many years ago. His brother, who directs Castlepointe Ministries (Lucerne Christian Camp) in Clear Lake, Calif., is a long and dear friend.

    Thanks, Keev, for reminding me of that book. I never heard him preach but that book was a great help to my wife and I after our daughter died. I remember we both read it, and found great wisdom/strength in it.

    I did not know that you had lost a daughter. Do you have a copy of the book or did you read someone else's copy?

    Pastor Vaughn is my pastor and one of the most incredible men I know. The book is well worth the read. You can get his sermons on SermonAudio.com as well.

    The FBFI (Fundamental Baptist Fellowship International) is a large fellowship that dates back to 1920 in the very early days of the Fundamentalist movement. It was originally called the "Fundamentalist Fellowship of Northern Baptists." Former FBFI presidents include Jasper C. Massee, Richard V. Clearwaters, G. Archer Weniger, Rod Bell, and John Vaughn. See here for more history.
