Missionaries


 
 

Athletes in Action is an international sports organization. We focus on equipping athletes and coaches to grow in relationship with Jesus and to multiply their life into others. Our ultimate goal is to see Christ-followers on every team, in every sport, in every nation. We do this by intentionally making athletic disciples that make athletic disciples.

Unfortunately, brokenness is systemic of sport. Along the Front Range of Colorado, we lead a team that influences college, Pro and Olympic athletes. We lead spiritual movements on 6 collegiate athletic departments and serve the Denver Broncos as their team chaplain.

When it comes to reaching the world, sport is a “universal language” provides a platform to offer the gospel of Jesus Christ to every person as the only lasting & eternal hope. The influence of athletes in every corner of the globe provides unmatched opportunity to impact sport culture and change the world

The mission statement that we are led by is from the Lord Jesus' Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20. It is CRU's desire that everyone on the planet could meet someone who truly knows Jesus. The parts Tammy, my wife, and I play are various. We help the staff and movement members of CRU and the church of our city to reach across cultural barriers to people groups who have never heard the name of Jesus in our city, our country and around the world. This includes Muslim and Buddhist groups and many other non-Christians. From missions classes, to practical in city outreach to summer mission trips to various places, the goal is the same, to help Christians be focused on the mission our Heavenly Father has invited us to join. As part of what we do, we coach others to know Christ better and be able to pass that love on to others. Tammy coaches fellow missionary moms, and I coach a number of different men, all with the goal of helping them know God's love and helping them pass it on to others. We believe that by helping people really get the love of God and learn to pass it on to others, we will help the entire world know!

Vital Church Ministry works to revitalize churches in leadership transition or crisis in North America and Western Europe.

Simply put, our mission is to bring the Father’s heart (love, Grace, companion, salvation) to the fatherless. A little deeper - God has led us to SHOW Who He is rather than just tell about Him. The majority of those who come through have heard all about God, but most have not seen the love of God in action. That’s what we do, we show and speak the Gospel!

We are pursuing this by cultivating personal and growing love for God in our staff, so that our staff are equipped and empowered to bring the Kingdom of God to Battambang, our target provinces in Cambodia, and the target nations around us (China, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar). I help to lead the School of Biblical Studies, a nine-month program that teaches Cambodians and foreigners how to study each book of the bible in light of its literary, historical, and theological context. We study the bible with the dual goals of 1) knowing God more clearly, 2) so that we are more equipped to explain the message of God's salvation in the person and work of Jesus.

Emergency Services Ministries is a ministry of presence to many emergency workers not only in Colorado, but we provide training, prayer support and help start chaplain programs for chaplains throughout the United States. Our Mission is to provide at no cost to the emergency workers or their agencies the following:

To provide an ongoing, accessible and effective ministry to the personnel of the Emergency Services that will meet the individual need and the corporate needs of the Departments.

To provide techniques and tools for personnel that will help them deal with or offset the effects of negative stress that is a part of the profession, keeping in mind that all stress is not negative and that the proper kind of stress that compliments awareness is a vital and necessary part of the profession.

To provide a "safe" person and place where individuals may discuss problems, personal or professional, without fear of negative repercussions. The exceptions to confidentiality will be when a person indicates a probable route of suicide, bodily harm to another person or intent to breech the law. Such exceptions will have to be dealt with immediately and with full disclosure to their Department and other agencies that might be needed to assist the person.

To provide Spiritual resources, by helping find a church for personnel that request such services, and we provide the individual with a custom firefighter or police officer bible as well.

To provide, at all times, access to the ultimate source of hope and comfort through personal example and intercession, as requested by the individual.

To be the primary liaison between the Emergency Services and community religious organizations, promoting a spirit of cooperation and understanding between them through presentations, discussions and active participation in seeking solution to the concerns of community religious organizations and the concerns of the Emergency Services.

To provide, on behalf of the ministry, crisis aid and intervention to people affected by crime, accident or disaster until their own religious leader or community assumes the responsibility for such assistance.

To provide leadership in defining and presenting classes, seminars and programs that could improve the quality of life of the personnel within Emergency Services
