Dr. Rick Scarborough
Dr. Rick Scarborough
Founder and President of Vision America
Dr. Rick Scarborough holds a Master of Divinity Degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Houston Baptist University, with a double major in Political Science and Speech.
Dr. Scarborough married Tommye Glyn Adams of Nacogdoches, Texas in 1970. They have three grown children, Misty, Richard and Kathryn. Misty is married to Daniel Allmond; they have two children, Micah and Alexis.
Dr. Scarborough conducted evangelistic crusades for fourteen years, witnessing thousands of conversions in more than 500 church and area-wide crusades. From 1990 to June 2002, Dr. Scarborough was the Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of Pearland. During his twelve year ministry there, the church baptized over 2000 people and relocated to a beautiful new 27-acre campus and facilities in March 2001; featuring Eagle Heights Christian Academy with faculty and student population of over 300 and Trinity Oaks Retirement Center with housing for 85 independent and assisted living units.
In 1992, Dr. Scarborough gained national recognition when he exposed the contents of a disturbing assembly program at the local high school. Under the auspices of an "AIDs Presentation," a young lady, sponsored by the AIDs Foundation of Houston, candidly discussed every sex act imaginable expressing the opinion (presented as fact) that "safe sex" was attainable by using condoms. Dr. Scarborough recorded the assembly and then made transcripts available to his congregation the following Sunday morning. The resulting furor that erupted caught the eye of the national media.
Dr. Scarborough mobilized his congregation during the following months to make significant changes in Pearland. Members began running for public office, as well as volunteering for various organizations beyond traditional "Christian ministry" seeking to become "salt and light" in their community.
In 1996 he published the widely acclaimed 252-page book appropriately entitled, Enough is Enough; a Call to Christian Involvement. Other published works include, In Defense of Mixing Church and State and It All Depends on What Is.Is. His newest book Staying on Track is due to be released soon.
In 1998, he founded Vision America, a ministry dedicated to "informing and mobilizing Pastors and their congregations to become salt and light, becoming pro-active in restoring Judeo-Christian values in America." The advisory board of Vision America includes notable Christian leaders such as D. James Kennedy, Don Wildmon, Jerry Falwell, Adrian Rogers and Lutheran Minister, Dr. Laurence White, who serves as the National Co-Chairman along with Dr. Scarborough.
Dr. Scarborough has been featured on Focus on the Family with Dr. James Dobson several times, as well as American Family Radio with Don Wildmon, the Day Star Network and numerous other media outlets. Salem Radio Network featured Dr. Scarborough's one-minute commentaries across the nation calling Christians to "Stand up, Speak up and Refuse to Give up." Dr. Scarborough hosted a weekly television program called "Enough is Enough" over Prime Time Network in 2000.
Dr. Scarborough regularly speaks in churches, at rallies, political conventions and before civic clubs. Scheduling information and availability can be obtained by calling 877-922-5582 or by visiting www.visionamerica.org.
Rick and his wife, Tommye, make their home in East Texas. The national headquarters for Vision America is in Nacogdoches, Texas.

Who is Alan Keyes?
Seasoned statesman. Alan Keyes spent 11 years with the U.S. State Department. He served in the U.S. Foreign Service and on the staff of the National Security Council before becoming Ronald Reagan's ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, where he represented the interests of the United States in the U.N. General Assembly (1983-85). In 1985, he was appointed Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations (1985-88).
Genuine conservative. Keyes was President of Citizens Against Government Waste (1989-91) and founder of National Taxpayers' Action Day. As the two-time Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Maryland, he challenged liberal Democrats Paul Sarbanes (1988) and Barbara Mikulski (1992). In the 1996 and 2000 Republican presidential campaigns, Alan Keyes eloquently elevated the national political debate. With his unequivocal pro-life, pro-family message, he forced the GOP leadership to address America's moral crisis. His political views are consistently based on America's founding ideals, those in the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution.
Alan hosted his own syndicated radio show throughout the 1990s, America's Wake-Up Call, and a television commentary show, Alan Keyes is Making Sense, during 2002 on MSNBC. He is currently writing books and speaking publicly on America's moral crisis.
Well-educated leader. Keyes has a Ph.D. in government from Harvard and wrote his dissertation on constitutional theory. He served as Interim President of Alabama A&M University in 1991. He speaks French and Spanish and a little Russian and ancient Greek, and is the author of Masters of the Dream: The Strength and Betrayal of Black America (1995); and Our Character, Our Future: Reclaiming America's Moral Destiny (1996).
Pro-life champion. Keyes has unashamedly and consistently raised the standard of unalienable rights--and Biblical truth--in defense of the unborn. Keyes confronts the culture of death with compelling and inspiring reasons why abortion must be banned from our land.
Dedicated family man. Keyes and his wife Jocelyn have three children: Francis, Maya, and Andrew. Alan's stated purpose in life, like that of America's Founders, is to provide a secure future for our posterity.
