The story of Dick Senter Ministries emanated through Brother Dick’s life's passion for lost souls not only with those in his community but through out the world. God’s word tells us in Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. In 1997 Brother Dick Senter caught the vision of saving the world for Christ so along with four other Christian brethren Hal Camp, Jim Moore, Newton Buckley and Neil Johnson of the First Baptist Church of Allen, Tx., where he was then a pastor, established Dick Senter Ministries (DSM) on March 13, 1997.
The essence of what Dick Senter Ministries is the conviction that the Bible is true and trustworthy. We believe God uses His Word uniquely in each of our lives to transform the way we think, believe, and live. Brother Dick, our founder, lived what he believed and it was the calling of Brother Dick home, suddenly on April 5, 2017, that brought Brother Dick’s love for missions in clear focus. A couple weeks prior to his passing he was so excited to have set up national to national programs in Kenya and Tanzania.
He was instrumental, as a pastor, Bible teacher and President of Dick Senter Ministries, in bringing the Lost to accepting Jesus as Lord and savior. Brother Dick walked with the Lord and his obedience to Christ call on his life is best said in Is. 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!" His dedications to the call of Christ to spread the good news to the whole world was fulfilled. We now rejoice in that he is with our Father in Heaven hearing Jesus say "Well done, good and faithful servant" for Brother Dick as it says in 2 Tim. 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. He never retired from the Lords work after preaching God's word for over 50 years and when not preaching was actively involved with Dick Senter Ministries.
It was the desire of Brother Dick and we at Dick Senter Ministries to uphold what God's word tells us in Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Then in Rom. 10:14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? An how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
The purpose of Dick Senter Ministries (DSM) is to spread God’s word and good news of Jesus Christ through evangelic messages. Brother Dick accomplished this in Coordination with International Commission (IC) first in personal evangelical work leading teams holding crusades in over twenty countries and later sponsoring national to national (N2N) crusades in 29 countries. Since 2004 Dick Senter Ministries sponsored 84 N2N crusades resulting in 282,957 professions of faith in Jesus Christ.
N2N crusades are evangelical meetings that are held by Baptist churches using people in their own countries with the help, both financial and material, of International Commission (IC). It is through IC that DSM sponsors N2N crusades and it has been the purpose of DSM to financially support these crusades through contributions that it has received. It is our mission to faithfully continue the work that Brother Dick had done in providing assistance in evangelical work throughout the world.
DSM relies upon generous contributions of churches and individuals with a desire to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world so none will be lost when Christ returns. It is the prayer of DSM that we as Christians catch the vision of “Christ to the World” sincerely seeking to do the will of God and do our part to further the kingdom of Christ.
