Thanks for your interest and concern in Morning Star Ministries.
Morning Star Ministries was organized in 2008 with the primary goal of reaching the American Indian with the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It has been determined that less that 10% of American Indians make any claim to the Christian Faith. We want to encourage existing work among Indian people and seek to establish new work as the Lord provides the Leadership. The work of reaching the American Indian has been slowly but surely diminishing in recent years, as the energy and efforts of most Evangelical groups are being placed upon other people groups.
It has also been determined that the American Indian makes a more positive response to other American Indians and we hope this will enable us to reach some areas that have not been reached yet.
Thanks for your interest to visit this website and see how God is using MSM in the effort to reach the precious Indian people of North America.
Pray About how you can become involved in this effort and contact us if you want or need more information.
Go Ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And Lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
Jesus Matt: 28: 19-20

A recent Project was finished when 7 pallet loads of clothing was delivered to Larry Adams Trucking in N. Wilkesboro, NC. This clothing will be taken to S. Dakota and Arizona to some very needy Indian Communities. Bro. Larry is a fantastic Christian Minister who loves Indian people and is providing a much needed service of shipping across America. Pray that God might continue to use his efforts to bless the Native American people across America.

Greetings in the Name of Jesus the Savior,
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year.” That is the message that is found in one of the famous songs of the Christmas season. I am inclined to agree. We celebrate in America during the Christmas season, like no other time of the year. We spend more money, on more people, some of whom we either don’t know, or don’t even particularly like. We create more debt, attend more parties, eat more food and act like children all over again during the holiday season. During the Year, we celebrate Easter weekend, the week of the 4th of July, Thanksgiving Day….. but for Christmas….it takes us a whole season to make it happen. I am not suggesting that Christmas don’t deserve a season. In fact, if Christmas is done right, for the right reason and with the right focus, I can fully appreciate the fact that for some it last from Black Friday until New Years Day. I am reaching the age where I know I don’t get as excited as in day’s past but I still agree, “It’s the most wonderful time of the Year.” For Mrs. Locklear and myself, this Christmas Day represents our 40th Wedding Anniversary. On December 25, 1976, we were married at Piney Grove Baptist Church by the Late Rev. Roy W. Maynor. To us has been born 2 fantastic sons, Jonathan and Andrew, 36 and 30 years old. Andrew is married to a Beautiful young lady, Mrs. Candice who is a nurse. Jon has a beautiful friend, Ms. Kim, and they all have brought us immeasurable joy. What they haven’t brought us is a grandchild. It does bring us great joy to know that they have given their hearts to Jesus and are confident of their Salvation.

Over the years we have become aware of the fact, that many Native American Missionary and Pastor families live in difficult and often very poor circumstances, in order to reach the Native American with the good news of the Gospel. Most Reservation communities cannot support Pastors in the way they deserve to be supported and many Pastors make great sacrifices to remain on the field. During this Christmas season, Morning Star will identify 10 Pastor/Missionaries and provide them a gift of $100. This will enable them to have a better time of celebration and hopefully provide some gifts to some of the children of the Pastors. Your December gift to MSM will enable us to do this special project. If we receive more than is needed for 10 families, we will find additional families as well. I am really excited to know that I can be a part of touching some Pastors Family, who might not otherwise find gifts under the tree or can plan some special activity during this holiday season. Thank you in advance for your support of the goals and mission of Morning Star Ministry.
“Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth, Peace, goodwill to all men”
2016 provided Morning Star Ministry many wonderful opportunities to minister across America and around the world. Our first project was the Annual International outreach to the Philippines. This year was our 10th trip since 2000. The impact we were able to make this year was perhaps the greatest yet. Pastor Chris Hunt, Pastor Sam Harvin and myself, were able to provide a 2-day Leadership Conference to approximately 85 church planters in the Bohol Region. This was our first time in this area and it was a wonderful experience. We then traveled to Valencia where we participated in a Missions Conference, baptized 17 new Believers and presented 50 Certificates the Graduates of our Morning Star Institute for Christian Studies Extension Center. We were able to fellowship with some of the members of a Church we helped Plant in Davao City before going to our Mother Church in Dagupan City for Leadership Training and Evangelism. It was a great experience and God truly blessed in every place and every effort. We are having discussions now about the Philippine 2017 trip and looking forward to yet another great time with our Philippines friends. If you would be interested in going us, contact us for more information.
God has given us a great partner in Rev. Larry Adams in N. Wilkesboro, NC. Bro. Larry has a shipping Ministry and we have been able to ship lots of food and clothing to South Dakota and Arizona. Bro. Larry is a wonderful Man of God, who loves people and has a heart for souls. He is truly a gift to MSM.
Campbell Soup has provided us with contributions of Campbell product again this year on at least 2 occasions. These pallet loads of food are given to local food closets and some is sent to other places as well.
We continue to have clothes given to us..good clothes, clean clothes. Mrs Linda Chavis in Hoke County is responsible for most of this effort, along with her family and friends. Every piece is appreciated and make available to some needy person.
We returned to California again this year, in our effort to discover the status of Christianity among Native People. What we discovered are Indian communities without a single Christian Church. We will follow up in our partnership with the California State Baptist Convention, to start Bible studies in the hopes of planting new churches among Native people.
Once again, this year, we were privileged to teach at Indian Falls Creek in Davis Oklahoma. This is the largest Indian Christian gathering in American with approximately 3000 present.
These reports represent only a part of how God has used MSM to make an impact among Native Americans in 2016. 2017 will surely provide as many or more such opportunities and I am so proud to have you as a partner. Your gifts make it possible for us to meet our goals and establish new ones. On behalf of all those whose lives have been blessed across Americana and around the world…..Let me say Thank You. We ask for your continued support for the days ahead.
Remember, MSM is a Federal Non-Profit 501-C3 and your gifts are tax-deductible. God Bless you and your Family as we enjoy “The Most wonderful time of the Year.”
