Weekly Bible Study
Meditation basically means we are to focus, ponder, and reflect upon Christ. The discipline aspect of "biblical" Christian meditation means we commit to pay attention to Him, giving Him our total concentration as LORD over us. We are to "contemplate" and "deliberate," which is to put Christ at the center of our attention and will by deliberating on His instructions and comparing them to what comes across our paths in life. This way, we can conform our mindset to replicate His Way, precepts, and call. This will enable us to…

Faith is an incredible, impacting instrument that builds up a local church, but it is not the reason for our relationship with Christ. Christ is the reason and He is the cause!


What is going on?
A word from our Director: Life in full-time ministry these past few years, and even more so, these last few months have been wild! I can't tell you all that is going on, most of it you would not believe it, as I am still trying to wrap my head around it all. The rest is too sensitive for the protection of our people in sensitive areas. This is hard for me to hold it in, but what I can say, is, WOW! The Gospel, worldwide (not so much here in the US) is expanding and moving more powerfully than anytime in church history, we are planting more churches and training more pastors as a single ministry, not to mention collectively with other originations, than many denominations have in their history. And if you know me you know I know church history and do not kid about it, and we are in the midst of it! It is mind blowing and how awesome our Lord is! Yet, the pushback from the enemy is evermore so intense. Most of us are facing seemingly insurmountable hurdles with physical, financial and relational issues. As giving is way down, dealing with massive losses due to natural disasters and manipulations by evil people, the board has to shut some of our overseas operations down, while the ministry is expanding exponentially. I and others face annoying and critical life threatening illness and setbacks, like we can't pay our bills or help our sick. Which is frustrating, because it seems many American Christians are more concerned with chasing personalities, fads and nonsense like watering down the Word of God and not focusing on Christ, while they miss out on the astonishing work our Lord is doing! I am sure I am not talking to or about you, because you are reading this!

Please keep in mind and prayer that we and our ministry are in need! We are experiencing our own recession, but we are trusting in God's provisions and blessings as we seek to know and serve Him better.

Prayer Requests

· For more ministry supporters and prayer warriors.

· Provision of all our financial, ministry, and family needs!

· Safety for our summer missions trips....

· Good health for us, as well as wisdom and resources so we can better partake in the opportunities God has for us, both personally and for the ministry!

· For the help, resources, and contacts to come our way with the right opportunities and associations!

· For the Lord to use us to minister as we research and develop books, resources, and curriculums for pastors, discipleship, and biblical church leadership development.

· Pray for a relief and victory over our spiritual warfare situations!

Our Purpose is to point to the Supremacy and Centrality of Christ, and with your partnership we can expand God's Kingdom by becoming and developing wholeheartedly, fully-engaged followers of Jesus Christ. If you want to help support us in these endeavors and ourpastoral training overseas, then please let us know.

There is no question - we are serving our Lord Jesus Christ because of your prayers, support and partnership, Thank-You!

We need your help!
We have a $150K shortfall, and we need your partnership to make our obligations and keep this ministry going!
