The focus of our ministry is to:
1. Come along side churches to help them equip the Saints for the work of ministry. The Apostles dedicated themselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word and they turned the world upside down. This is exactly what the church needs to do.
2. Provide evangelism, discipleship, and apologetics training seminars for men’s meetings, youth rally’s, pastors’ conferences.
3. Publish resources related to evangelism, discipleship, and apologetics.
4. Preach in prisons and jails.
According to Eph. 4:11-12, evangelists are to come along side the church to assist them in equipping the saints for the work of the ministry:
“And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ”.
Here is what Charles Spurgeon had to say to future pastors on the subject of bringing in a gifted evangelist to preach at the local church:
“To call in another brother every now and then to take the lead in evangelistic services will be found very wise and useful for there are some fish that never will be taken in your net, but will surely fall to the lot of another fisherman. Fresh voices penetrate where the accustomed sound has lost effect, and they tend also to beget a deeper interest in those already attentive. Sound and prudent evangelists may lend help even to the most efficient pastor, and gather in fruit which he is unable to reach; at any rate it makes continuity in ordinary services, and renders them less likely to become monotonous. Never suffer jealousy to hinder you in this. Procure the services of some imminent soul-winner, …and this may in God’s hands bring you brighter days.”
Our Founder and President served on staff with a mega-church that grew from 100 to 3,000 in 10 years. One of the things we did on a regular basis was to bring in GREAT guest speakers. Spurgeon was right, it helps to break up ordinary services and creates a sense of excitement and anticipation in the congregation. Church was never meant to be boring.
Here is what the Director of Chapel at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois had to say after hearing our director speak in chapel,
“In an era of fadism and fashionable substitutes for true scriptural principles, the ministry of Phil DelRe is a ray of hope for the church. Phil has tapped into the mode of true Gospel evangelism that has proved so mighty in the past. For anyone desirous of seeing the type of deep and thorough heart work that so characterized the Church in better days, Phil should not only be heard but studied.”
