PRIMETIMERS OCTOBER 22, 2019 - DON TOWNSEND, CHRISTIAN ILLUSIONIST

Are you ready for some down home belly laughs? How about some amazing illusions? Well make sure you put PrimeTimers on your calendar next Tuesday, October 22, beginning at 10:30 a.m. All persons 50 and above are welcome.

Temple Baptist PrimeTimers will welcome Christian Comedian Don Townsend for a morning of laughter and joy.

Townsend is from Orlando, Florida and learned his craft at an early age when as a little boy his grandfather was the one who got him started down this interesting road. 

While his grandfather was not an entertainer, he did have an uncanny understanding of people. His grandpa always said, "Whenever you talk with someone, don't just listen to what they say. Observe their actions, facial expressions, and even postures, because most of what people say is not through the spoken word." This is very true; actions really do speak louder than words.

Don had the unique opportunity to perform in a circus each summer to pay his way through college. After graduating he spent several years performing in comedy clubs. 

That launched the phenomenal combination of mind reading, audience participation, and humor. It is true that what Don does appears to be completely impossible; however, it is all done with nonverbal observation, psychological influence and illusion. He makes it clear that everything he does is through natural means. In other words, it is good clean entertainment with a message.

Since then Don has thrilled audiences with his unique abilities performing on over 500 luxury cruises and for corporate clients throughout the world. 

Townsend, who is now touted as a Christian magician, illusionist, comedian and entertainer was awarded the “Best Evening Performer” trophy two years in a row by the International Fellowship of Christian Magicians. It has been said, “He is an excellent magician and a wonderful communicator.  I found him to be both entertaining and inspiring.  I believe he will be a blessing to you also. "Other testimonials include, “Don Presented one of the best programs we have ever had.  I am so thankful that God is using people like Don to carry out the Great Commission.  He will be able to reach people that I could not reach.” Rev. Chris Whaley; First Baptist Church Longwood.

"People from our church and community were drawn and captivated by your presentation.  Seventeen responded to the invitation to ask Christ into their lives.  What a great day!" Rev. Wayne M. Thomas, Senior Pastor; Grace Point Church of the Nazarene

“Our church invited Don to do our Christmas Program this year and what an amazing presenter he is.  He entertained with his witty humor, his illusions were fabulous and how he pulled us into his Christian message was beyond words.  Our church highly recommends Don and would use him again.” Reverend Steve Nolin; First United Methodist Church Pine Hills.

Ladies' Fall Bible Study

When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or a fleece spread beneath the evening sky. But Gideon's story is so much bigger than that. This is a story about God and His people—His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of, even through, their weakness.

This 7-session study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, learn to see them as the gifts given specifically and strategically by God. If you've ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this study is for you.

PRIMETIMERS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15 - DR. JIMMY DeYOUNG

Dr. Jimmy DeYoung has resided in Jerusalem for at least a portion of the year each year for the last 23 years where he held full credentials as a journalist in the second most populated journalistic city in the world. Arriving there just 3 days prior to the Gulf Crisis in 1991, he weathered 39 Scud attacks. Jimmy gave reports nationwide on several networks during the Gulf Crisis. He has his finger on the pulse of what is considered the media "hot spot" of our time, the Middle East. On his travels throughout the US and around the world, Jimmy brings with him the latest news from out of the Middle East with a unique blend of political, biblical, and prophetic insight that cannot be found in the media today.

After graduating from Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga, TN, Jimmy joined with Jack Wyrtzen and Harry Bollback at Word of Life Fellowship in Schroon Lake, NY. There he spent the next twelve years in many staff positions including staff evangelist, host of Word of Life Inn, and producer of radio programs heard worldwide.

For the next 5 years Jimmy was the Vice-President and General Manager of New York City's first Christian radio station, WNYM. During his time at the station, Jimmy was the producer and host of a daily talk program in the #1 media market in America.

Upon first arriving in Israel, moved by the plight of the Israeli people and by the spirit of God, Dr. DeYoung founded the Assembly at Jerusalem, a Bible preaching church that meets in the Jerusalem. Today, Jimmy travels the world proclaiming the good news of Christ's gift of eternal life and soon coming return for His Church, using the means of media, radio, television, books, and the internet, as well as by preaching in Churches and assemblies around the world.

Jimmy has met and interviewed many international leaders including: Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, former Prime Minister's Ariel Sharon and Ehhud Olmert, Israeli President Shimon Peres Shimon Peres, former Jerusalem Mayor's Teddy Kolleck and Ehud Olmert, former Defense Minister Moshe Arens, Jordan's Foreign Minister Marwan Muasher, and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

 

Jimmy is seen on the Day of Discovery television program, which is produced in the Middle East. He is also heard daily and weekly on radio and internet, with the latest reports from the Middle East on several networks consisting of over 1500 stations. He is also seen on the John Ankerberg Television program.

Jimmy is a noted conference speaker in the United States, Europe, and South America, and he devotes several months out of each year to this conference schedule. He has authored the best-selling book, "Sound The Trumpets," produced a number of audio and video materials, including his best seller, "Ready To Rebuild," a documentary on the building of the Third Temple. Jimmy continues to monitor the most current events as they unfold in the Middle East and compares these current events to the prophetic truth of God's Word.

Jimmy had the privilege of receiving his Doctorate from Tennessee Temple University in May of 1996. He also received his PhD from Louisiana Baptist University in May of 2000.
