We are the Crisp Family, Gary and Jeanie and we are serving full time as the Director of Prayer Baptist Missions International. We currently reside in Robbinsville, a small town in Western NC. We are members of Grace Tabernacle Baptist Church and Brother Jimmy Millsaps is our pastor. We also have a son, Titus who is called to preach and is involved in ministry. He and his wife Amanda reside in Murraryville, GA and are members of Murrayville. We have a middle daughter, Courtney. She is married to Jed Cable and they live in Robbinsville, NC. Jed is also a young preacher and they are members of Grace Tabernacle Baptist Church. Morgan is our youngest daughter and she is married to Cody Reed. Morgan and Cody live in Marble, NC and they also attend our home church in Robbinsville, NC.
Jeanie and I were both born and raised here in the small town of Robbinsville, NC. I was saved in an old fashioned cottage prayer meeting at my Grandmothers house on a Thursday night in 1979. After a tour of duty during Desert Storm in Iraq and Saudi Arabia, I announced my call to preach in my wife's home church in which she grew up in, Mt. Nebo Baptist Church. I have been preaching for more than 23 years now and I have had the privelege of pastoring for a little over 17 years. The last church I pastored was the church in which I announced my calling to preach in, Mt. Nebo. While at Mt. Nebo, we started Mt. Nebo Christian Academy, a K-12 Christain School. I had the opportunity to be the pastor as well as serve as the principal, a teacher and several other duties at the school. After much prayer, in August 2010, I resigned the pastorate, stepped out on faith and joined up with Preachin' Time Ministries. After serving for 7 years with PTM, I then became the Director of PBMI in 2017.
With PBMI, we have the opportunity to serve in many ways and areas. PBMI is a Mission Board headquartered in Boiling Springs, SC. As General Director, I have the responsibility of overseeing the day to day operations as well as helping and recruiting Missionaries. We truly want to be a help and an encouragement to the missionaries who have answered God's call to go!
If you are a missionary or a church and need or would like our help in some area, please contact us! We would be honored to do what we can. In 2 Cor. 7:5-6 Paul said this - For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears. Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus. God sent Titus over to Paul to be a help to him and the work that God had him doing. We would love to be a Titus for you! Until our support is raised, our abbilities are limited. Pray that we can get our support raised so we can do all that is needed!
Our ultimate hope is that our Lord and Saviour will soon return and call us to meet Him in the air! (Titus 2:11-14) In the mean time while we wait, we hope to get to be a blessing to you, your church and your missionaries! Would you consider having my family and I come by your church and share our work? Would you consider helping us with monthly support? Would you please pray for us as we endevour to do what the Lord has called us to do till He comes?
