B.H. CLENDENNEN

Brother B.H. CLENDENNEN was Founder and Overseer of School of Christ International – now with students in about 150 countries of the world. He was an ordained Minister with the Assembly of God for over 55 years but ministered internationally amongst all groups of believers. He was born in 1922 and saved in 1949. He soon felt the call of God and set out as an itinerant evangelist. In 1956 he planted a church which he led as a great missionary church for the next 35 years. During that time he held crusades across the USA as well as in many other countries. With his wife he was in Vietnam during most of the war where they preached and prayed until Pentecost broke upon the people. Over the years he has ministered by radio, television and books but above all else by "Going."

In 1992 at the age of 70 he moved to Russia to begin the first School of Christ. Since then this work has grown beyond any imagination of the mind as a tool of recovery and revival. Around the world he has been greatly sought after as a preacher and teacher of the Word of God especially by leaders; but more than that, as a man of God who has walked with God faithfully leaving us an example to follow. In 1956 the word of the Lord came to him when planting his first Church, that out of this work the Lord would 'Restore the Message of Pentecost.' The Spirit of God commissioned him to 'Forge a vessel of Recovery.' This has BEEN and NOW is being fulfilled.

Brother Clendennen went to be with the Lord in December 2009 at the age of 87. Since then this work has continued to break forth on the left and the right into new nations. Directors raised up under his leadership continue to press forward in this work across the world.



 

A Solemn Call to Preachers across the nations

Heb 12:25-29, "See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire."

We are sending out an important call to the churches of these lands to gather preachers (specifically) as God has never yet sent revival to a nation without first dealing with, preparing and moulding preachers who then moulded the church in readiness for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of the preacher. A dying church will downgrade the preacher and his preaching. We know that we are in trouble when theatrics replace preaching and counselling replaces deliverance. It is a terrible sign when Bible colleges put more emphasis on music and musicians than on preaching and preachers. God’s remedy for such conditions has always been a preacher, a man of God.

All it takes to be a preacher is a sermon, but to be a man of God requires an altar. The preacher’s most important function is to ascertain what the Lord would have him to say, then speak it distinctly, simply, and lovingly, whether men will hear or not.

Preaching is one of the greatest instruments in stirring human minds, and of moulding society. Preaching will be powerless except in proportion as it relates to and exalts Christ. We have a distinct gospel to proclaim, and if we are faithful to our calling that gospel will prove to be the great power of God to change our nations again. Jesus was both the text and the sermon, the doctrine and the exemplification, we also must be the same.

No promise is given to genius of learning in the matter of expounding God’s Word, but great and exceeding promises are given to men who will walk humbly and holy before their God. Every preacher is an errand bearer; he has to tell what he has been told. Such a preacher is different from all other vocations because God inspires and sends him.

We call on all preachers, whether Pastors or missionaries, young or old, long in ministry or preparing to go into ministry, whether tired in the fight or full of zeal in the fight, all are welcome to gather in for these schools and conventions which we believe will be a new beginning for many ministries and churches.
