What’s your vision for your department?
“Our vision: souls!
“Our Destination: the world!
“Our thrust: statistics tell us that each day throughout the world, 160,000 people die and step into eternity. Of those, 100,000 of them do not know Jesus.
“It is my life purpose to reach our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the utter most parts of the world with the life changing Gospel of Jesus Christ and to train others to be disciples and do likewise.
“Recently, I have been organizing evangelistic crusades, children’s crusades, community days, service projects, and other methods to help reach the lost. Currently, my team is working in the streets of Pittsburgh with the homeless providing food, clothing, and shelter, and prayer- to show them how much we care for them and how much God loves them. This ministry to the homeless has become a place where even our youth are finding their purpose in serving God and sharing His love with others.
“I also organize trips to many other nations. In one closed nation, we have been working to train and develop nationals and missionaries and evangelists and then sending them to their localities to share the love of God. In one country alone, each month we are seeing over 5,000 souls make decisions for Christ as well as planting 100 churches per year.
“Another important facet of my work is to travel through the U.S. to encourage local congregations regarding the purposes that God has for them in soul winning as well as to share various techniques that help believers to be more effective in reaching souls for Christ and to raise awareness and funds for the work that we are doing in other nations.
“I love to travel and experience new places, people, and cultures and so I feel perfectly suited to the work God has called me to.”
