Since I was a child, I have been involved in almost every aspect of church ministry. Some of my earliest memories are crawling under my father’s robe after the church service. I would stick my hand out of the pocket slot of the robe and shake hands with people leaving the church. As I grew my father continued to nurture and mentor me in ministry.
My father and I planted all of the oldest trees you see around the Crystal Cathedral campus. My first paid job, in the church, was to wash toilets, sweep floors and vacuum. By the time I was in high school, I was leading the youth group (as a volunteer).
After graduating from college, I was hired to organize the small group ministry and took it upon myself to create and organize 24/7 prayer teams which met at the Cathedral.
Now, after decades of seeing cultural changes, ministry development and technological advancements, I am prepared and equipped to take this “Church with No Walls” to the next level.
Over the next few years you will see this ministry grow. Every ministry I have ever been involved with has grown and flourished…and so will this one. With your support and the guidance of the Holy Spirit of God, this ministry will produce healing, hope and inspiration to millions.
From 2000-2008 I spoke to at least 20 million people every week. We had manned offices in over 13 countries. There was no one who was speaking to more people than I was.
Now we are going to do this through new media. My vision has always been, and will always be to “Inspire the World with the Good News of God’s Love.”
This is “The Gathering” of God’s people. He is continuing to make the world a smaller place and now through new technology, we have a world-wide church, gathering together and circling the globe with prayer support and the message that there is hope in Jesus.
Please join our “Gathering,” our “Church with No Walls,” by going to the tab at the top of this page labeled “Grow and Connect.” From there, “Download Our Community App.”
God loves you, and so do I.
