Lord of the Harvest: How to be Faithful in Ministry

Episode 185 - Brett Butler Subscribe

In the Bay area of San Francisco, nearly 93 percent of the population have no relationship with Christ. Such statistics might seem extremely disheartening or overwhelming. But our guest, Brett Butler shares on how God has given him a call to reach this group.

In the next five years, he's asking God to start 500 new churches – one for each zip code in the area.

During the show, Brett discusses the importance of abiding or resting in Jesus and how that plays out in his ministry. He also talks about his salvation story and how God gradually brought him to a relationship with Him. This episode is full of conviction, hope, and strength as we hear about God’s movement in the world. Reaching 93% might sound impossible, but God has an amazing way of doing more than we could ever imagine.

How to Be Generous: Supporting Others Sacrificially

Episode 183 - Gret Glyer of DonorSee SubscribeDonorSee

This week, Gret Glyer returns to the show to share about DonorSee and how it works. It is an app he created to help the fund-raisers and donors stay connected. By sharing videos and information of where the money is going, missionaries encourage donors to keep supporting their ministry.

Over the last few months, Gret and his team have been able to share their story through different outlets, everywhere from Huffington Post to this show. As more people have started using the app, stories of support and financial opportunity have spread throughout the world.

(Note: There were some technical issues with my audio on a couple of questions but Gret's answers were great, so I didn't want to cut them out just because I didn't sound amazing.)

How to Pass the Baton in Ministry and Spend Time with Jesus

Episode 182 - Zack Woolwine

When working in ministry, it is crucial to spend time with Jesus. Without Him, we really can do nothing. Our guest, Zack Woolwine, talks about just how important abiding in Christ is. As a pioneer missionary to the Pacific Island area, he has many stories of how God is moving there.

Zack has a vision to work himself out of a job. As he continues to make disciples in Tonga and surrounding islands, he plans to pass the baton onto the local pastors and leaders. With local leaders taking charge, the Gospel has continued to spread to the outer reaches of the Pacific, leaving almost no place left without the Good News of Jesus.

Episode 181 - Jacob Via

Sometimes, discipleship can be messy. Our guest, Jacob Via shares about his experience in sharing the Gospel across cultures. He is currently a missionary and church planter in Haiti. Eventually, he wants to see the Gospel spread to every corner of Haiti, to where there is no place left to spread the Gospel.

Jacob also discusses the process of discipleship, including both its joys and struggles. Although there have been moments of difficulty, God has been faithful to lead in the ministry and bring many to salvation. More people in Haiti have finally heard the story of God’s redemption, and no longer see Jesus as a “good luck charm,” but as their Lord and Savior.

Canada, Church Planting, How to Make the Good News Tangible in the World

Episode 180 - Matt Hess

There are important things to remember when working in ministry. Like that it is the Holy Spirit who draws people in, not good YouTube videos. Matthew Hess shares about the value of humility in church planting (and everyday life).

He is currently working to plant twelve churches in Toronto through The Fellowships Church Planting Network in the coming years. Matt grew up in Oklahoma, and while pastoring in Northwest Mississippi, felt the Lord calling him to reach those who had never heard the Gospel. God gave him three criteria: It had to be an unchurched community, very diverse, and a big area.

With that list, and a desire to remain humble and teachable, he has been able to abide in the Lord while sharing the Good News across Toronto.
