DR. NEGIEL BIGPOND
Dr. Negiel Bigpond has been in ministry for over thirty years and has been both evangelist and pastor, evangelizing in over 143 native reservations and currently serves as Apostle of Morning Star Church of All Nations. He is an accomplished musician and singer and is also a certified drug and alcohol abuse counselor. Dr. Bigpond is a full-blood Euchee (Yuchi) Indian and a fourth generation minister of the gospel. He and his wife Jan have been married for 39 years and have 3 children, 2 sons-in-law, 1 daughter-in-law, and 6 grandchildren.
Dr. Bigpond has spent time in Washington D.C. to work with Senator Sam Brownback (ret.) of Kansas regarding H.J. RES. 46, which is a joint resolution of apology to Native peoples for ill-conceived policies by the U.S. government regarding Indian tribes. Because of his tireless work with this resolution, Charisma Magazine named him one of the ten most influential Christian leaders of 2006. He is also involved with Native America Justice Gate east of the Mississippi, which deals with land reconciliation in the eastern states. Dr. Bigpond has received various keys to cities and proclamations from governors and mayors from his work in the east. He is also on the boards of the several ministries and provides an apostolic covering for many ministers as a member of C. Peter Wagner’s International Coalition of Apostles.
Dr. Bigpond has traveled worldwide, representing Christian Native Americans preaching and teaching God’s Word. Inspired by his involvement in Heartland Apostolic Prayer Network, he founded the Native American Apostolic Prayer Circle, which establishes prayer teams who are skilled in spiritual warfare and intercession for the Native people and issues that concern them. Out of this, God has given him Spirit Wind, which is a prayer day focusing on the Five Civilized Tribes and their leaders. Tribes gather each year for this event.
God has also given Dr. Bigpond the vision of Two Rivers Native American Training Center, in which he is president and co-founder. The training center is a Christian military training base camp for the purpose of dealing with occult and territorial enemy strongholds on reservations and other locations throughout the U.S.
Dr. Bigpond is frequently featured on “Light of the Southwest” on God’s Learning Channel in Midland, Texas. He teaches extensively about land issues and reconciliation. Dr. Bigpond has also recently authored his first book, “Women Warriors”, and has begun co-hosting a Tulsa area Christian television program called “Tulsa-The Gathering Place.”
