Drummers For Jesus Shuts Down On June 1

Carlos Benson, director of the Dallas-based Drummers For Jesus, has announced that the organization will shut down as of June 1. Citing problems with staffing, funding, and the sheer amount of work involved with the project, Benson, in a message posted on the DFJ homepage, said that the burden had become too great for him and his family. “I want to say that Drummers For Jesus has been a lot of hard work with a lot of personal consequences for me,” he wrote, “but I know that lives have been touched and people have been changed by God using DFJ to deliver His message of love and hope and the Heavens rejoice with every soul that has come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior.”
