The Black Robed Regiment (BRR) was the name the British placed on the courageous and patriotic clergy of the American Revolution, referencing the black robes that ministers wore in that day. Those pastors boldly proclaimed the Word of God in everything that applied to life, whether spiritual or temporal, whether related to eternal life with Christ or to topics such as taxation, education, government, military, or any other issue touched in the Bible. America is longing for a resurgence of the Black Robed Regiment – they want ministers who will provide much needed community leadership and speak out fearlessly on issues related to today’s culture. To equip pastors and clergy for this role, we have created the Black Robe Regiment website with a vast array of resources, including:
- A history of the Black Robed Regiment, including inspiring accounts of some of the famous ministers during the American Revolution and their fearless exploits.
- A modern pledge that can be taken by today’s clergy. Pastors who participate will not only receive a certificate as a Black Robe Regiment minister but they also have the option to be listed as a BRR pastor, so that citizens can search the website to locate BRR pastors and churches in their area.
- Numerous historical resources, including famous sermons delivered by Black Robed Regiment ministers across the centuries as well as a modern resources section with a list of sermon topics relevant to contemporary cultural issues — timely practical sermons preached by today’s bold leaders, including D. James Kennedy, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, Ken Hutcherson, Tim Brooks, Robert Jeffress, Adrian Rogers, Charles Stanley, and many others.
- A section of helpful legal resources, whether related to the constitutional liberties of churches and people of faith or to internal operational issues such as personnel matters and church discipline.
Visit the BRR website today; peruse the wonderful resources; check out some of the downloadable historical documents and books, thus learning the inspiring history of some of America’s great early spiritual leaders.
