The Bible Believer’s Drum Corps and Bible Baptist Drum Corps are one in the same.

Started in 1998 by David A. Sargent for the purpose of creating a core group of drummers who have the right background for playing God’s music in Church services and marching in parades to the Glory of God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

The formation of the drum corps was in line with teaching the American Standard Rudimentary Drumming and Formal Military Percussion based drumming to enable our church the opportunity to set up and maintain an orchestration drum section that would play the hymns in their true form as a march; and also a marching drum corps that would march in the Pensacola Christmas Parades each year as a witness and testimony of the grace of God found only in the Lord Jesus Christ.

It has been a great honor and blessing to teach drumming all these years and be a part of this ministry. My last year playing in the drum corps was in 2010 from the suffering of extreme back pains as I can no longer carry a drum. I did continue to march alongside the drum corps another year, but the neuropathy in my feet ended that as well. I have continued to teach and instruct the new drummers as well as direct and administrate the drum corps thereafter and as we gear up again for another year; what a blessing. I am deeply appreciative of all those who have been involved in one way or another in the drum corps and look forward to meeting one day up in the air.

Below are a few years of photos that I have gathered, my only regret is that we did not have someone taking photos each and every year.
