Here’s The Story Behind the DVD…
It’s hard to imagine, sitting in our modern day mega churches, that there was a time when towns had no church buildings. And if they did have a small building for church services, they often had no local pastor to speak of. Enter the Circuit Rider, usually on a weary horse straddling saddlebags that carried his hymnbook, Bible and a few personal items.
These musical performances and readings, sung and read by some of the most well-loved gospel artists, tell the story of these preachers who blazed the trail to share the gospel of Jesus with people of every race and nationality living in little towns and settlements across the nation.
These brave men and women, from every denomination and creed, understood the meaning of perseverance and sacrifice. Their stories are not often told, but they are as much a part of the American landscape as Mt. Rushmore and the Grand Canyon. The spiritual formation of a nation and the church we have today was shaped in part by their dedication and vision. Their legacy cannot be underestimated. Their spirits cannot be forgotten.
