Welcome to the Seeking Christ
you serving Christ?
G. (Gregory) Albert Darst
Brother Darst is an independent Baptist preacher, teacher, evangelist, and writer. He is always active in the ministry of an independent Baptist church.
In teaching adult classes, he has taught verse by verse through Matthew (13 years); verse by verse through Revelation (5 years) and verse by verse through the Song of Solomon (2 years), all based on a unique Christ-centered Sunday school teaching method he has developed. He has completed a Bible commentary on the Song of Solomon (The Revelation of Jesus Christ in the Song of Solomon) uniquely highlighting the Person of Jesus Christ. His first book has been published, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ in the Old Testament." His second book has been published (The Letter From Heaven: It's Not What You've Imagined) a scripture based letter from his wife in Heaven.
Brother Darst was a frequent contributor of articles to The Pillar magazine, a ministry of Hallmark Baptist Church, Simpsonville, S.C., and a conference speaker.
God has also used Brother Darst to share His Word in various conferences and revivals throughout the Caribbean and Eastern Europe, plus in churches in the USA. He has been used by God in seventeen overseas preaching trips.
Saved and baptized in an independent Baptist church in 1976 at age 34, Brother Darst was called to preach in October of 1980. He entered Baptist University of America in Atlanta, Georgia in 1981. He completed the requirements for a B.A. in theology, and one year of postgraduate work, graduating with honors in 1984.
Since graduation, Brother Darst has been the pastor of two independent Baptist churches, one in Georgia and one in Florida, before entering upon his present writing, teaching, and itinerant preaching ministry.
"He is a man with a special vision that dominates his entire life and ministry. That vision is to magnify the Name and Person of Jesus Christ, through his teaching, preaching and writing. All of us, of course, say that. But he is obsessed with it. I must admit, I have found it contagious. His preaching style is typically expository, and always with the express purpose of setting forth the glories of our Lord -- "that in all things He might have the preeminence." This message is truly needed to encourage and unify God's people around Christ and His truth." (a Baptist pastor)
Brother Darst and his wife Barbara had been married for 50 years. Barb went home to her Lord in April of 2016. Their oldest son, Garrick, was a pleasant, well-mannered Down's Syndrome child who went home to his Lord October 2, 2008. Their second son, Geoffrey, graduated from Bob Jones University, Greenville, S.C., with a major in business and a minor in youth ministries. The Darst's have four grandchildren.
Brother Darst is an fundamental, local church only, historic independent Baptist. He believes the King James Bible is the preserved Word of God in English. His approach to preaching, teaching, or writing can be summed up in his definition of preaching:Preaching the Word
"Making Known the Son,
In the Presence of the Father,
Through the Power of the Spirit,
According to the Revelation of the Word." Statement of Faith
