Dr. Robert Lemmon, Jr., the son of Robert M. Lemmon, Sr., started operating a printing press at the age of fourteen. Raised in a Pastor’s home, Bobby received the Lord Jesus as Saviour at ten years old, then surrendered his life to Christian service five years later. Brother Bobby served under his Dad’s pastorate in many capacities, including choir director, youth leader, and assistant pastor. In 1968, he and his father founded the Bible and Literature Missionary Foundation, and began printing the Scriptures for free foreign distribution. In 2007, when Dr. Bob Lemmon, Sr. went to Heaven, Robert, Jr. became BLMF’s Director. He and his wife, Linda, along with their four children with their families, serve at the ministry’s sending church, Victory Baptist Church in Shelbyville, TN. He still presents BLMF when available and faithfully works at the print shop. Dr. Lemmon counts it an honor to have been called by the Lord into the Bible-printing ministry, believing it is the responsibility of the local church to get the Word of God into the hands of those in need on the foreign field.
Brother Houston Buchanan has been married to Ms. Anita for 52 years. They have been friends with the Lemmon family (BLMF founders) for over 30 years. He stands with BLMF because he believes it is a ministry which honors Psalm 68:11 and allows others to fulfill Mark 16:15 and Matthew 28:18-20. While Brother Buchanan pastored at Faith Baptist Church in Estill Springs, TN, the Lord impressed him to only support BLMF financially, but also to represent the ministry. He says, “BLMF is a ministry that a church can not only support, but in which it also can be actively involved.” Brother Buchanan is grateful for the opportunity to share BLMF with pastors and churches.
Brother Keith Terhune was saved at the age of thirteen and thanks God everyday for that salvation. Called to preach as a junior in high school, Keith is a graduate of Tabernacle Baptist Bible College in Greenville, SC and West End Baptist Bible College in Easley, SC. The Terhune family has served at Bible Baptist Church in Pickens, SC with Pastor Mark Dibler since 1999. Brother Terhune has served as Music Minister, Youth Leader, and in Children’s Ministries. They are pleased to be representatives of the Bible and Literature Missionary Foundation and are excited about what God has done and is going to do. Brother Terhune is aware of the urgency to get the printed Word of God to the lost and dying world. He is available for Missions Conferences, Revival meetings, and special Scripture emphasis Sundays.
Brother Maxie Smith was given his first Bible on his twenty-second birthday. It was a gift from a Christian young lady, who also invited him to a Baptist church. It was at this church that Maxie received Jesus Christ as his Saviour in 1962. Ten years later, Brother Smith was impressed by the Holy Spirit to start a bus ministry after hearing a sermon by Brother Bobby Roberson. He served twenty-one years at the Baux Mountain Baptist Church, and then moved to Virginia to train churches in the bus ministry. Brother Smith has served in six churches in Virginia and West Virginia, starting bus ministries in each of them. He presently serves in the bus ministry at Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Stoneville, NC. Maxie has also been involved in the discipleship of new converts for forty-three years. He will now be presenting BLMF, sharing the global need of God’s Word with churches in America.
Brother Bernie Alexander heard God speak to his heart as a teenager through a message on the radio by Brother Lester Roloff. He immediately yielded to God for his service. Brother Alexander pastored for thirty-seven years and then had to resign due to restraining health issues. Since 2000, he has tried to encourage the three pastors of the churches he has attended. He and his wife, Linda, are members of Fellowship Baptist Church in Independence, Missouri. Brother Bernie felt blessed when the door was opened to represent BLMF and has been praying for renewed strength to aid the ministry.
Brother Shannon Lemmon is the third generation of the Lemmon family in The Bible and Literature Missionary Foundation. He was blessed to have been raised in the print shop, viewing the unshakable faith and dedication of the ministry’s founders: his father, Dr. Bobby Lemmon, Jr.. and grandfather, Dr. Bob Lemmon, Sr. At the age of 28, the Lord called Shannon back to BLMF, actually being rehired by his grandfather just two days prior to his Heavenly home-going. Shannon, with his family, travels the nation preaching and presenting this great work. Brother Lemmon is passionate about the Bible-printing ministry, believing it fulfills one of the greatest endeavors the Lord has given: printing His Precious Word for the lost and saved in need around the world.
Brother Glenn Kosiorek vividly remembers pastoring a country church in New York that was exploding for Jesus Christ! Among many ministries in the church, there was a collating ministry of John and Romans. His church got excited about handling the Word of God, and was able to put together thousands of Scriptures. When the Kosioreks moved to Shelbyville, TN, they began giving regularly to BLMF. After traveling as an evangelist and singing family for many years, Brother Kosiorek counts it a joy now to be presenting BLMF to churches across the country and visibly seeing God’s people get a burden when they hear of the need of the Word for the world. The prayer of Brother Glenn and Ms. Shelley is that God will use them to raise much financial support for BLMF, which is changing the lives of many and resulting in eternal souls in Heaven.
Brother Phil Jones was saved in March of 1970 and married to Ms. Betty Jo Powers in the following. June. While traveling in the Army, Brother Jones was able to serve the Lord in various capacities in several churches. He met Dr. Bob Lemmon, Sr.(BLMF founder) as a student at Southeast Fundamental Baptist College in Madison, Alabama in 1995. Seeing the importance of the printed Word and the needs for funds to print and distribute the Scriptures, Phil began presenting BLMF to churches in northern Alabama and middle Tennessee. His family joined Victory Baptist Church in Shelbyville, TN in 1997, and Brother Jones again serves as a representative of BLMF. His desires are to be used by God, assist in the distribution of His Word to various mission fields globally, and to raise support for BLMF.
