Bus Ministry Resources

By Dr. Jack Hyles

Dr. Jack Hyles is an American hero! He was loyal Pastor of First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana from August, 1959 to February, 2001. Through God's power Pastor Hyles built “The World's Largest Sunday School” (which was in the Guinness world book of records) with over 25,000 people in attendance every Sunday. Dr. Hyles did what everyone else said was impossible, and bless his heart, he has written dozens of “How To” books telling us exactly how he did it.

Let's Build A
Visitation Program!

First Baptist Church soared to a membership of over 100,000 and averaged 10,000 baptisms per year for the last five years of Dr. Hyles ministry. Pastor Hyles tells us how he did it in his book...

Let's Baptize More Converts!

For many years, the church has been acclaimed to have the "World's Largest Sunday School." Millions of people from the Chicagoland area were reached for Christ by Dr. Hyles' bus ministry, including myself. Thank God for Jack Hyles!!!

What Is A Creature?
(MP3 by Dr. Bob Gray Sr.; God loves
Negroes as much as white people!!!)

“And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” —Luke 14:23


(Dr. Ray Stanford; Eternal life is eternal security!!!)

"God stands in no need of our strength or wisdom, but of our ignorance, of our weakness; let us but give these to Him, and He can make use of us in winning souls." —Pastor Dwight L. Moody

Shining Light Baptist Church

If you're tired of deeper-life preachers, dead churches and empty pews—find an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church with a Bus Ministry! The Devil wants you to find a church with entertainment instead, but that's not going to help you grow spiritually. We all need PREACHING!!!

Bring Them In! (MP3) (awesome video sermon by Pastor Danny Castle—The Bus Ministry is like fishing with a big net!)

To start a bus ministry
you've got to do 3 things:

  1. Spend a lot of money.
  2. Be willing to use promotions.
  3. You've got to have a Junior church.

The reason why we run buses is so that Jesus Christ can touch children's lives...

Mark 10:13, “And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased , and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”

Those children couldn't come on their own, someone had to bring them! When the disciples tried to stop them, the Lord was MUCH DISPLEASED!

"Suppose I did no more than you do, then no people would ever be converted through my efforts; I would fold my arms and rust out. A revival helps to bring the unsaved to Jesus Christ." —Evangelist Billy Sunday

MP3 Sermons, Dr. Wally Beebe

“There is much mourning today over false 'isms,' infidelity, and the like, but sum them all up, and I do not fear them one half so much as that dead and cold formalism that has crept into the Church of God.” —Pastor Dwight L. Moody

Don't Forget The Hindmost
(a wonderful life-changing MP3 sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles, 1926-2001)

Twin Rivers Baptist Church

"God Almighty never intended that the devil should triumph over the Church. He never intended that the saloons should walk rough-shod over Christianity. And if you think that anybody is going to frighten me, you don't know me yet." —Billy Sunday, The Need of Revivals.

Jesus is Precious!

Compel Them To Come In!

Some preachers hypocritically say that they don't believe in putting cows up on the roof to get people into church. They criticize using candy, goldfish and promotions to draw children to come to church. Yet, if your church has padded pews, air-conditioning and chili suppers, you're already bribing your adults to come to church. Bless God, if we can give away goldfish or hotdogs to get children to come hear about Jesus, then so be it. Jesus said in Luke 14:23, “And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” The Lord said that He wants His house “FILLED,” and to “COMPEL THEM TO COME IN.” That includes giving away pizza, candy, basketballs, going to the zoo after church, water-balloon fights, having a bus-captain swallow a live goldfish, ice cream sundaes, et cetera. PRAISE GOD FOR THE BUS KIDS!!!


The Church As A Family
(by Pastor Danny Castle)

“It is the only happy life to live for the salvation of souls.” —Pastor D.L. Moody

(MP3 sermon by Dr. Hyles; To be saved trust Jesus as the Lamb, not Lord or King.)

Quotes On Prayer & Revival

The Most Mistreated
Group In America: Children!

(by Pastor Danny Castle)

Buy Used Church Buses

Starting a bus ministry is one of the best ways to create excitement and bring a church to life. Of course, if the pulpit is DEAD, then nothing else matters. I see churches all across America with a bunch of grey haired and bald heads. There are no young people!

Billy Sunday was correct, who said if we're going to defeat the Devil, then we have to hit him with the cradle instead of the crutch! Young people want to be a part of something growing, not dying!!! Most churches are dead like a spiritual morgue!

Church Buses For Sale

“Let's quit fiddling with religion and do something to bring the world to Christ.” —Billy Sunday

"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." —Revelation 3:15,16

Burden For The Bus Ministry”)

Some see a fight, a push and a shove,
I see a desperate cry for love.

Some see a brat, he acts so bad,
I see a boy who’s never met his dad.

Some see the messes and the trouble they give,
I see the poverty in the place where they live.

Some see a teenager who won’t dress right,
I see a girl who has to protect herself at night.

Some see a smart mouth, disrespectful and loud,
I see a kid made fun of by a crowd.

Some see a woman who comes just to use,
I see a lady by a drunken husband abused.

Some see a drug addict withered and worn,
I see a soul the Lord wants reborn.

Some see the dirt, the filth and the rot,
I see a kid who without Jesus doesn’t have a shot.

Some see a crook whom you don’t trust much,
I see a man who needs the Lord’s touch.

Some see a bunch of heathen who holler and yell,
I see kids with parents in jail.

Some see a teenager who gives a lot of flack,
I see a boy whose whole family is on crack.

Broken homes, broken lives, those without hope,
They need compassion and God’s grace to cope.

For every little girl who lies awake hungry at night,
Lord, help me to keep in the fight.

For every scared boy who sees his mommy get hit,
Lord, help me to be faithful and never to quit.

For every mommy who needs a new start,
Lord, help me to show her how to ask You into her heart.

For every man on whom sin has its hold,
Lord, help me to make sure the “Old Story” is told.

The Lord to me His mercy has shown,
Lord, help me to reach out so others may make Heaven their home.

May others judge gently when these folks they see—
If not for God’s grace, that’s where all of us would be.

“No Second Chances” Youth Rally 2015 — Shining Light Baptist Church

“THE Gospel needs only to be preached in the power of the Holy Spirit to hold its own against every imitation and substitute that the mind of the natural man energized by Satan can devise. —Pastor Harry Ironside, from his sermon, “ANOTHER GOSPEL

Redeeming The Time

In youth I'm too happy to think, I've got plenty of time left.
In manhood I'm too busy to think, I'm trying to make a lot of money.
In the prime of life I'm too anxious to think, worry has taken over.
When I start getting old, I'm too old to think—life's wasted, heart's got harder.
Dying in bed—I'm too sick to think, I'm weak and suffering.
Death is too late to think—time's over and opportunity is lost.
In eternity—forever to think, I'm in Hell now with no mercy, and lost forever.

“Too long I've laid me down to sleep, and prayed the Lord my soul to keep.
I should awake before I die, and realize time is passing by;
And rise and go and tell the lost, despite my plans despite the cost.
Too long I've laid me down to sleep, while multitudes about me weep;
And other cries of dark despair, for no one ever seems to care.
My life is short, and soon I'll stand, with sinner's bloods upon my hand;
Unless I wake before I die, and realize time is passing me by.”

“The clock of life is wound but once, and no man has the power,
 to tell just when the hands will stop, at late or early hour;
To lose one's wealth is sad indeed, to lose one's health is more,
to lose your soul is such a loss, that no one can restore.”
Why There's A Hell (MP3 sermon by Pastor Danny Castle)

“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” —Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President 1801-1809

“Old-fashioned, Spirit-filled, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, soul-winning, Bible preaching! It is the hope of the church! It is the hope of the nation! It is the hope of the world!” —Pastor Jack Hyles

Here's a wonderful MP3 sermon clip from Dr. Hyles' sermon, THE ONE AND ONLY YOU. Here's a quote from the sermon...

“Do you know why God made you? God didn't make you to be a great preacher. God didn't make you to be a great singer, or a great teacher, or a great educator. God made you to need Him!” SOURCE: Dr. Jack Hyles (from the sermon, 'THE ONE AND ONLY YOU').
