Then Jesus came close to them and said, "All the authority of the universe has been given to me. Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age."

Matthew 28: 18-20 TPT

A Fuse is Burning...

We live in a day when disasters are more frequent, crisis is intensifying, and hostility is growing towards righteousness.

Yet, the nations groan for God…

Whether we are facing oppressive governments, calamity, pestilence or war, we have a job to do. The stakes have never been so high, and it is time for our great light to shine.

God promised we’d do great exploits in His name. We must go forth with love and power and let the gospel explode into every ethos, tribe, and nation.

…This mission is possible!

Just Obey Jesus

The “Great Commission” can longer remain the “Great Suggestion” shrugged off to a select few so so we can live our lives in comfort, pleasure or indifference.

As we step into 2020, Jesus’s command remains and many are accepting their mission in 100% obedience and removing every fear and obstacle out of the way.

So whether we work in an office, participate in short term trips or live in a foreign country, we are ALL called to live misisonally and radically wherever we are.

Matthew 24:14 TPT

They saw a mighty outbreak of God’s power in the wake of the storm, with many signs and wonders following. This is where the seeds for being involved in crisis response work were planted. In 2007 he and his wife Laura officially launched Crisis Response International. Since then, CRI has trained over ten thousand volunteers to reach the harvest in the midst of crisis in the power of the Holy Spirit. He serves as the Director of Crisis Response International with the mission to train and mobilize relief workers and full-time crisis response missionaries to bring God’s power and love to transform communities around the world.
