Lisemby Family Evangelistic Ministries
REVIVAL * REVIVAL * REVIVAL * REVIVAL * REVIVAL
Revival is the past "HISTORY"of the Church! The Church was birthed in a great Revival some 2,000 years ago and began the Proclamation of Death, Burial, Resurrection and Coming back of the Lord, proclaiming that He is the only Way, the Truth and the Life and that Salvation can be found in no other Name than the Name of JESUS.
Revival is the present day "HELP" to the Church, to keep the Light burning in our city, state, country and world. It has been our experience in the past 40 years or so to see churches on the verge of closing their doors recover and blossom and bloom after a "Heaven-sent, Spirit-wrought, Soul-saving, Bible-preaching" Revival.
Revival is the future "HOPE" for the Church. Many times Revivals bring us back to the foundation of who we are in Christ, and brings excitement, enthusiasm, fresh breath and a new passion and urgency to the Church to be about the Lord's business, of winning the Lost and living a daily lifestyle of repentance, commitment, and godliness.
While the trend in many modern churches is to go without the God-called Evangelist, we would urge you to consider using an Evangelist as often as possible in your church. Ephesians 4:11-12 says, "And he gave some apostles; and some prophets; and some, evangelists; and some pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ;"
The Lisembys are a three-generation family, and we have traveled presenting the Gospel of Jesus by way of the Preached Word and song for over 40 years. Revivals, Concerts, Crusades, Camp Meetings, Seminars, School Outreach, Street Evangelism, Tours and Reunions - you name it, the Lisembys have probably been there bringing a message of hope and salvation through Jesus Christ. One great asset of the Lisembys is that we come and bring our live music with us, as well as the preaching. With 5 keyboards, bass, drums, acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, 6 violins and a viola, we try to find a song that everyone will enjoy to prepare the hearts for the preaching of God's Word. With 2 preachers of the Gospel available, we bring a variety of messages. Our hope and desire is that we are able to touch everyone's heart with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are a "FAMILY". God has given us the desire to reach out to families. While families are continually breaking, failing, and falling apart, we feel a call to specifically minister in the area of families. The family is the first institution God established on this earth and should be one of the main factors to consider in our churches. So goes the family, so goes the nation.
The Lisembys travel full-time in their self-contained travel coach, presenting the Gospel through singing and the Preached Word all over the United States and into other countries as well. With their wide areas of interest, they are able to speak to the entire church, and reach people of all ages.
The Lisembys are members of First Southern Baptist Church of New Edinburg, Arkansas working in cooperation with the Carey Baptist Association of Fordyce, Arkansas.
The Lisembys would like for you to give prayerful consideration when seeking your next Revival team or special event.
Below you will find a few Referrals for the Lisembys:
"I can say with a grateful heart that I have known the Lisemby Family for 35 years and have been blessed by their ministry and a friendship that has allowed me to witness their depth of spiritual hunger and passion. As a pastor for the past 25 years I have no doubts that The Lisemby Family has helped mentor me along the way to where God is using me today. Not only are they some of the most talented and beautiful musicians I have ever known but they are students of the Word of God. They hold to a conservative view of the Bible and practice what they believe. Joe and Rick are two of the finest preachers of the Word and they refuse to compromise with the world when they preach God's unchanging truths. They are some of the finest soul-winners I have ever known and I have observed their desire to see people come to know Jesus Christ through every means possible. I have used them to minister in every church I have pastored and have never been disappointed but instead have always been inspired by their love for our Lord Jesus. I can't think of any evangelists that I could recommend any higher than The Lisemby Family and I pray you will be blessed by their ministry just as I have."

"To whom it may concern:
In a day when many of our church pulpits and platforms are filled with people who are more full of themselves than they are of God, it is such a fresh breath of air to minister with people like the Lisemby Family. When I think of the Lisembys, I think of words like: friends who make you feel like family, commitment without compromise, humble yet bold in their witness, hard working yet never too busy to take time to minister to anyone, and anointed beyond words, yet not a hint of "showmanship". I have had the privilege to travel and minister with the Lisembys in area-wide crusades, homeless shelters, RV parks, church revivals, tent revivals etc. You name it, we have been there. We took a group of 30 people to the Holy Land in November of 2010. What a blessing it is to be with them. When you have the Lisembys come to your church, for a lack of better words, you get "the whole package". Joey and Ricky are two of the greatest preachers of the Gospel I have ever heard. The Family's singing will exalt the Savior, edify the saints and evangelize the lost. Without any reservation at all I highly recommend and endorse the ministry of "the Lisemby Family".

"To a Pastor or church family that is praying about having the Lisemby Family in their church:
Let me comfort you with some personal information concerning the Lisemby Family.
For 40 years I have known this family. They entertain, but they are not entertainers. They will come to your church to worship with you, and they will stay true to the Word of God.
We recently had them come to our church for a Sunday. They did a wonderful job of leading our church in worship. They sang and preached during both services. They were a great blessing to all young and old. Their family is a classic example of what God had in mind when He designed the family to be to His honor and glory.
Many times in our churches we need to know about some things before we invite folks to be our spiritual guests. Such as: travel, food, lodging & finances once they get to your church. So let me comfort you with the facts. They have a bus for travel and lodging. They will eat anything, and and are very gracious guests. They will go around the world for a love offering. They have no set fees. They just want to be loved just like any of the servants of God.
Once you have given these folks an opportunity to serve and worship with you, blessings will all be yours. They only want to do God's Will. Please consider this letter a personal recommendation from me."

"To my Co-Laborers in Christ,
The Lisemby Family is truly a family-oriented ministry. We thoroughly enjoyed their ministry and fellowship. They do not 'perform' for the Lord, but lead the congregation to worship Him in spirit and in truth. Christ Himself is first place in their ministry, as is evident by their genuine love and support for one another. The children reflect a Christlike attitude and serve as an excellent model for young people. We were blessed to have them and we heartily recommend them and their ministry."

"To all our Sister Churches,
It is with great joy I write this letter of recommendation for our new friends and co-laborers in the Lord, the Lisemby Family. Without a doubt they are the best kept secret in Christian Ministry. It was so refreshing to have this family at Central. We were all blessed beyond measure. I get text messages from my members asking when can they return. This family's talent is amazing, their spirit is Christ like, and everything about them lifts up Jesus. If you want entertainers they are not for you. But if you want someone to minister to your flock then they are what you're looking for. My only regret is, why didn't I discover them sooner. We definitely plan to have them back. God Bless."

"Dear Servant of Christ,
It is my pleasure to recommend the Lisembys to you. We utilized them to bring the music in a Revival and Bro. Joel to bring the Noon Bible study. Later we asked them to come back and be the musicians and preachers for a Revival. They are talented musicians whose music is inspiring. Brothers Joel and Rick spoke to our hearts in preaching God's Word. Their dedication and commitment to our Lord is an example to all. I recommend them to you and feel they will be a blessing to you as they were to us."
