Camp Speaker
Evangelist Richard Harper

Richard Harper trusted Christ as his Saviour at the age of seven in Wall, NJ. As a teenager, he surrendered to preach the Gospel and left for Bible college after graduation. While in Bible college, he strayed from the Lord and lost sight of his calling. Ten years later, God convicted his heart after hearing a message on the love of Christ, and he finished his Bible college training. Brother Harper has traveled in evangelism since 1996 and is a graduate of ABC. His preaching is known for its abundant use of Scripture and dynamic delivery.
