It’s time to renew and refresh our beliefs, and Trinity Baptist Church is starting the year off right with a revival.  
After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Pastor Tim Parrish and his congregation are ready to revived their souls.  
From Feb. 8-11, the church will have revival services with Dr. Bobby Brindle. Brindle is hailed as the “World’s Smallest Evangelist” at 3 feet, 9.5 inches tall. Although he doesn’t have a big physical presence, Brindle is considered a giant in the ministry.
A native of Chatsworth, Brindle was born in 1942. He is the youngest of six children, two of whom are little people.  Brindle has not allowed his size to hold him back. He travels extensively, preaching the word of God.
Brindle has learned to overcome obstacles. He played sports and was active in high school. “I worked hard to become an all-star basketball player,” he said.  
Later, he became a successful business man. When he was 35, Brindle said the Lord called him to preach. He left the business world and began preaching the gospel full-time.
During his time in ministry, Brindle has been involved in everything from church planting to tent ministries. For the past 30 years, Brindle has preached and ministered to thousands all over the world.
His simple message is, “God can use anyone who will surrender to Him.”
In his testimony, Brindle tells audiences how he once coped with being small by drinking.  
“When I was drinking, I felt as tall as anybody. It was hard to compete with the big world,” Brindle said.
As a revivalist, he travels from city to city across America.
The motto Brindle lives by, which is posted on his Web site, is, “Live big, laugh often, love much.”  
“I am thankful that I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me,” Brindle said.
He is the founder of the Dr. Bobby Brindle Little People Association Foundation, which he started out of a desire to help other little people with their finances. His organization also helps people attain better education as a way to earn decent wages.
Brindle is married to Cathy Brindle and they have two sons and two grandsons.
Parrish and the Trinity Baptist Church invite the public to participate in their revival with Brindle. Services are at 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8,  and 7 nightly from Monday, Feb. 9-Wednesday, Feb. 11.
For more information, call 877-6544. Trinity Baptist Church is on Dorsey Road, near Airport and Elim roads.
Brindle does take speaking engagement requests. Go to his Web site at www.bobbybrindle.com.
