PIONEER CHURCH PLANTING
“It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.” – Romans 15:20
SOS Ministries is a pioneer church planting ministry that seeks to follow the example of the Apostle Paul in Romans 15:20 – to preach Christ where He is not already known, because there is no other hope for mankind.
By God’s grace we have planted churches in many countries as we follow Jesus’ example of preaching His gospel and showing compassion to those who are in need.
Our aim is to see people drink from the river of Living Waters and to see that they have physical water. We desire to feed people spiritually – and physically, and most importantly, we desire to see the name of Jesus made famous in every country where the Lord calls us and to be faithful to His calling.
We have planted churches in El Salvador, Honduras, Nigeria, Benin, Togo, and Guatemala, and are continuing to be a part of their growth.
The biblical model of missions is to preach the gospel publicly and house to house, plant a church, train up indigenous leaders, and to encourage them to remain faithful. God has shown this again and again to be His wisdom as He raises up faithful men and women in the church to continue the work.
Indigenous leaders understand their language, their culture, and their own people. They don’t require extensive cultural training, and they’re already known to the communities where they serve.
It is our mission to encourage our leaders to remain faithful to the Lord, to build up the brothers and sisters in the Lord, and to spur them on to continue the work of church planting in their own lands. We desire to support them in this work both spiritually and materially.
“This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you” – Titus 1:5
