Brent Alderman grew up in a Christian home in southern West Virginia. The

was involved in church music. He trusted Christ during Vacation Bible School
at a church near his home in the summer of 1972.
After high school, Brent attended Appalachian Bible College in Bradley, West

Why should I come? As Christians we’re frustrated about immoral government. We wonder about the future of our nation. One of the proactive approaches to bad governance is to pray for those who hold authority and reach them with the gospel. Brent is coming to share an actual practical real-time way to effectively do this. We often talk about it, but we struggle with putting “boots on the ground” when it come to dealing with our government. Come for good ideas and direction.
