Celebrating the Life of Rev. Orrie Flynt
Rev. Orrie Flynt is quite possibly the most prolific soulwinner the Heartland Conference has ever had. He has lived his life impacting people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. By conservative estimates, he has led over 5,000 people to salvation or a rededication to Christ in one-on-one conversations. For over 20 years he has faithfully served in prison ministry at the Oklahoma County Jail. He is a loving husband and father, friend to many, and a genuine example of a Servant of the Lord.
He was promoted to Heaven on Monday, July 11, 2022. He is now living in the eternal presence of the Lord Jesus Christ, the One to whom he led so many people. Our prayers our with Sister Gayliss and the family as they celebrate and mourn our beloved Bro. Orrie.
In addition to the gift of evangelism, Bro. Orrie was blessed with the gift of discernment. He had no patience with those who would seek to waste his time, but reveled in sharing with those who were genuinely seeking.
