Adrian Rogers—The Merritt Island Years



The Pastor Training Institute is excited to announce that this Fall, an entire sermon collection was discovered dating all the way back to the 1960s. Featuring over 400 sermons in total, this compilation of rare audio messages chronicles Adrian Rogers' eight years as pastor of the First Baptist Church of Merritt Island, Florida. He began his incredible pastoral journey there at age thirty-three just as the Kennedy Space Center and NASA programs launched their Apollo Moon Program. Adrian's powerful and anointed preaching would draw in many from the booming NASA program and the surrounding city of Merritt Island.


Adrian Rogers: The Merritt Island Years brings a unique perspective to today's pastor and Christian leader by launching them back to a time where liberalism was invading seminaries, religious literature was becoming corrupted by relativism, and a generation was being lured by the vices and philosophies of the world. Few had the courage to stand up against this dilution of the Gospel, and its subsequent impact on the youth of a generation. Nevertheless, Adrian Rogers single handedly led the Southern Baptist conservatives to take back the seminaries, and in turn, train up a new generation of Christian leaders rooted and grounded in the Word of God.


In classic Adrian Rogers style, every sermon begins with a request for the congregation to turn in their Bibles to a specific passage of Scripture. From there, Dr. Rogers spends 45-60 minutes preaching in both the Old and New Testaments with exclusive attention on how both of these testaments point to Jesus Christ. His ability to connect the timeless Truth of Scripture with his congregation was unparalleled and will surely enrich your life and journey of faith in the twenty-first century.
