ADVANCE is empowering Nationals worldwide to start churches in their Countries.  Between 2002 – 2016 27 churches were started.  In 2017 another 27 were started in Latin America, Africa and Asia. In 2018 another 54 church planters were supported for a total of 108 new churches starting around the world.  In 2019 another 100 new works will begin by Gods grace.

1.  29 in Mexico.
2.  25 in Uganda.
3.  2 in Myanmar.
4.  44 in Liberia.
Our ministry goal for 2020 is to begin 200 new churches.  This will be accomplished by doubling our support this coming year through the generosity of churches, individuals, business leaders and foundations.

For $50 per month one church can be started. In 2019 I will be raising one-time large gifts from business leaders and foundations to accelerate church planting around the world.  Please consider an alliance with ADVANCE to help these planters get started.

Church planting through local churches is the responsibility of us all!  Together we can push back the darkness that has captivated Nations and send the Light that will change hearts and lives.

The 6 Initiatives

Church Planting

Planted 27 in the last 15 years. My Desire is to form an alliance of Pastors globally, to plant churches.

Urban Youth Ministry of Greater Indianapolis

Young Champions/Youth Xchanges/Summer Youth Camp/Urban Youth Academies/Sports Programs

Transitional Living Spaces

Providing help to men, women, and children in need of housing.

Trinity House

Soup kitchens to provide nightly dinner and a Gospel message. In addition to Trinity House I @ E. 10th St. three more feeding centers have begun in Fountain Square, Haughville and Garfield Park. As a result over 600 people are being fed monthly.

Missional Opportunities

Annual mission trips for church planting through evangelistic services, sports camps, and children’s ministry (VBS).

Missional Projects

In order to enhance our church planting opportunities, we will be raising additional funds to be a blessing to others by purchasing 1: vehicles, 2: church buildings, 3: bibles/materials, 4: orphanage supplies and renovations, 5: soccer balls.

We would be honored to be invited to speak and sing at your church or function for three reasons:

  1. God called me to preach when I was 17 years of age, and I must fulfill my call.
  2. After 40 plus years in the ministry, I have a desire to influence, encourage, and bless pastors and churches around the world to be greater missional movements of God.
  3. My wife and I have chosen to donate all love offerings, which have been received by Advance to self-fund these 6 Initiatives.
