Will You Join the Ranks?

By Derek Altom


One of my fondest memories growing up was the time I spent at my grandparents’ house. My sister, brother, and I spent many afternoons at their house after school while my mom worked. I enjoyed watching television with my Grandpa. He introduced me to the classic TV shows. One of our favorites was Batman, the classic version from the 1960s starring Adam West. I can see the words “Zoom,” “Pow,” and “Smack” flashing across the screen of my mind now.

Whether it was the Penguin, the Joker, Mister Freeze, or the Riddler, there was no doubt who Commissioner Gordon and Chief O’Hara would turn to in their time of distress. There was no questioning the hero of Gotham City. It was Batman and his trusty sidekick, Robin.
Whenever one of these dangerous criminals hit the streets, the first course of action for Gotham city officials was to put out the call to Batman. They did this using the “Bat Phone” in Commissioner Gordon’s office. On occasion, if these dastardly criminals struck at night, Commissioner Gordon or Chief O’Hara would race to the top of city hall and flash the “Bat Signal” into the sky hoping their hero would see it and help them. Without fail, Batman responded.

Randall House and D6 Family Ministry is blessed to have its own heroes. For over 80 years, Free Will Baptist people have seen and responded to the “signal in the sky.” They have come to the aid of men and women across the globe to help them in their time of need.

Heroes responded by providing D6 curriculum free of charge for Free Will Baptist church planters during the first two years of their church plant and at a 50% discount the two years after that. Heroes provided Bible study resources to military chaplains to aid them in teaching and training soldiers on the frontlines, protecting our freedoms. They are heroes helping heroes.

Heroes answered the call and enabled D6 curriculum to be translated into various languages and distributed across the globe, including restricted-access countries for use in the underground church.

Additionally, heroes have provided resources for families to help them grow in their faith, practice generational discipleship, and carry the principles of Deuteronomy 6 into the future. These tools include the D6 App, the D6 Family Podcast, At-Home Bundles, and Splink, to name a few.

Another way Randall House and D6 Family Ministry heroes save the day is through investing in leadership development. They courageously invest financial resources in helping the next generation prepare for service in their communities and in the local church. This is achieved through the national Youth Evangelistic Team (YET), CTS Ministry Expo, and Truth and Peace Student Leadership Conference.

They also help by providing a weekly resource, Top Reads for Busy Leaders. This free resource is provided weekly to leaders around the world, sending them the top articles in the fields of leadership, church life, family, cultural trends, etc.

One of the most significant ways Randall House & D6 Family Ministry heroes impact the Kingdom of God is by supporting D6 International. In countries like Singapore, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, and France, the principles of Deuteronomy 6 are being planted in the hearts of church leaders.

Thanks to Randall House & D6 Family Ministry heroes, believers are being built both in the church and in the home. Their faithful commitment to the principles of Deuteronomy 6 is seen through various ministries far and wide. They saw the need. They answered the call. They have become heroes.

I often hear the question, “Does my giving really make a difference?” As you can see, the answer is a resounding “Yes!”

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. They come from different backgrounds, levels of education, and various passions. Their faithfulness to be a Randall House & D6 Family Ministry hero makes all the difference.

Here is the question: “Will YOU be a HERO who makes these ministries possible?”

Randall House & D6 Family Ministry is looking for men and women, boys and girls to invest their financial resources to ensure the principles of Deuteronomy 6 continue to be championed for generations to come. We are looking for heroes to support leadership development and to invest in resources for the church and home.
