E-MAIL MINISTRY IS SIXTEEN YEARS OLD
Today (December 3, 2014) is the 16th birthday for E-Mail Ministry. This ministry started with 15 “volunteer” subscribers. Today, by God…s grace, E-Mail Ministry reaches around the world!
Over the past sixteen years, the E-Mail Ministry messages have been used by its subscribers for Bible studies, sermons, Sunday School lessons, prison ministries, missionaries, evangelism and outreach, talking with children about God and Jesus, and many, many more purposes.
I thank God for giving me this opportunity to help others to do His work.

E-MAIL MINISTRY VISION STATEMENT
The Great Commission has always been a guiding verse for E-Mail Ministry.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'” (Matthew 28:18-20)
Based on this verse, E-Mail Ministry’s Vision Statement is:
“To provide, free to all who ask, inviting and inspirational stories via e-mail to Christians and seekers of all nations as one of many means to build and strengthen the Body of Christ.”
“free to all who ask” – Like God’s grace, E-Mail Ministry is free for the asking. Always has been and, with God’s grace, always will be.
“inviting and inspirational stories” – These messages are meant to encourage people to think about their lives and how God wants to be a part of them. The messages are intended not only to be read by the subscribers but by others with whom they feel inspired to share.
“via e-mail” – The primary means of providing messages to subscribers is via e-mail. E-mail is about the only cost effective way of reaching people in all the nations. In the past few years, however, E-Mail Ministry has developed a Facebook page and a Twitter account to increase our outreach
“to Christians and seekers” – This ministry is meant to grow Christians to be disciples as well as provide a low key way of introducing seekers to God.
“of all nations” – The goal is to have subscribers from all the nations on this earth.
“as one of many means” – God uses many means to reach His people. E-Mail Ministry is just one way God is reaching people.
“to build and strengthen the Body of Christ” – Making disciples, as the Great Commission stipulates, is what all Christians and Christian ministries are meant to achieve.
I want to thank all of you for your support of E-Mail Ministry and for sending these messages on to others!
“If God is for us, who can be against us.” Matthew 8:31b

E-Mail Ministry is in the process of re-developing its website. It has been many (many) years since the current website was created. I will let you know when it has gone live.
