Steven Schnedler: "We have accepted the call."

After years of working successfully in the secular marketplace, Steven has decided to God's call into full time missionary work beginning in Nicaragua where he will assume oversight of the 40+ churches that already exist. Along with his wife Leslie, Steven's commitment represents a complete step of faith.

Steve steps away from his secular job in two days. In this video recorded late last year, Steve talks about the reasons that led to his and Leslie's decision, the five goals for Nicaragua, and the need for support to make this happen. Lend a hand on our Partner page.

Dear Friends,

Wow, what a journey! From October 12 to November 12, it was a non-stop whirlwind of activities in Mexico which included:

  • A School of Ministry, teaching on The 7 Foundation Stones of a Local Church

  • Attending pastors' meetings

  • Counseling pastors and wives

  • Ministry in five churches

  • Our guys in the Pan American Ministerial Network have promoted unity among pastors and churches plus prayer for Mexico, and have headed up events fostering a new spirit of love and unity in the Body of Christ there.

  • Flight to Mexico City area

Teloloapan

(By car to Teloloapan, 4 hours from Mexico City: Vida Nueva Church of pastor Gabriel, a precious spiritual son)

The time is fast approaching for Steven to launch into full-time ministry (January 2013), including missions ministry in Mexico, Nicaragua, Honduras, etc. Let us believe together for his financial support to be forthcoming. We still need new sponsors for this. Blessings to all of you our wonderful friends, who make our ministry possible. Thank you!!
