Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Global Missions 

The Lord has called us to train pastors in rural villages in the Majority World with a specific emphasis on India. 80% of the pastors in non-western countries (Majority World) have little to no formal training. Equipping these indigenous pastors makes them more effective in reaching their communities for Jesus and shepherding their believers. The Lord has also given us the opportunity to minister to pastors and their wives who have undergone severe persecution in India. Some of these pastors have been beaten for the cause of Jesus, some have had their homes or churches destroyed, and some have given their very lives for the Kingdom of Heaven. Because of the sensitive nature of our work and some of the areas we go we are not using our names. We would appreciate you adding us to your prayer list.

Get to know me.

Denice and I have been married for over 35 years and we have one daughter and four grandchildren. I have been in full-time ministry for almost 10 years. I train village pastors who do not have access to a Bible college or seminary in the Majority World. I go to these countries and teach pastors and church leaders how to do their jobs biblically. This generally involves a 3-4 day conference three to four times per year. I also minister to persecuted pastors in an undisclosed country. These are pastors who have been beaten, their homes/churches have been destroyed, or they have been imprisoned for their faith.

Likewise Worship Collective

The Likewise Worship Collective exists for the purpose of discipling worship leaders that God is calling to shepherd His people. We aim to equip and train followers of Jesus and gifted musicians to lead humbly and creatively in their contexts for the purpose of unifying the local church through music and worship.

Solitude Place

Currently, we provide free counseling and encouragement to our local community at the office and through the Internet or by phone to those outside our area. We also rent an apartment in North Carolina where God’s servants can come for a sabbatical, some physical rest, and encouragement at no cost to themselves. Laurie and I have been counseling and encouraging folks for over 35 years in ministry together. In addition, we utilize homes and/or guest quarters that our ministry partners own in different states to accommodate leaders.

Our ultimate vision for Solitude Place is to be a retreat center where pastors, chaplains, missionaries, ministry leaders, and Christian business owners can come for respite and encouragement, at no cost.

We all know a hiker stops along the way to rest so he can continue along his journey feeling refreshed to complete his trek. These homes provide a place to stop for the weary. However; many ministry leaders fail to stop and spend time with their family and Lord.

In fact, research shows that some of the biggest reasons that pastors burnout in ministry is due to the lack of vacation/sabbatical rest, little or no physical exercise, no effective way to deal with critics, lack of daily time in the Scriptures, poor relational/leadership skills, the neglect of family, loneliness while leading, and the inability to say no to requests.

We provide a place where folks can come to REST, be REFRESHED and RECONNECT in all of those relationships! You can help by praying, becoming a monthly financial partner, and sharing about Solitude place with your friends. With God’s help there are no limits!
