The Breath of Life Ministries Executive Board recently elected Pastor Carlton P. Byrd, DMin, as speaker/director for the ministry. Earlier this year, Byrd was elected to serve as the associate speaker/director. Bryd replaces Dr. Walter Pearson who will now serve as speaker/director emeritus.
In his nearly sixteen years of pastoral leadership, Dr. Byrd has constructed and renovated churches, baptized over 2,200 persons, served on numerous denominational and community boards, along with serving as a guest minister on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). He has pastored in the states of Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, and Georgia.
"While one-on-one contact is vital for effective evangelism, media is a fast and efficient way to introduce millions to the Advent message. Those who respond must then be introduced to someone in their local area who can show Christ's love in human form and bring them into the church. At Breath of Life we believe media is a necessary tool for reaching the whole world with the gospel. Through Christ-centered doctrinal programs, millions may find answers to their questions about how to cope in today's uncertain world," said Byrd.
In January 2011, Breath of Life will launch a new broadcast series with Dr. Byrd on the Discovery Channel at 7:00 a.m. (ET and PT) on Sunday mornings.
