What we aim to solve New!

Agents for Christ purposes to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. It is easy to see the brokenness that has infiltrated our society; violence, drug addiction, pornography, anxiety, fear, depression and countless families being torn apart are all symptoms of the spiritual depravity of mankind. We believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ can bring a radical transformation to the life of anyone who would respond to Him. But the question is, how will they hear this life saving, hope filled message? Romans 10:14 says, "How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" Problem #1: Most unbelieving people today won't step foot in a church. Answer: Take the message to them. Problem #2: Most Christians aren't actively sharing their faith. Answer: Train and equip them to do so.

Agents for Christ exists to bring radical change to the world, one life at a time, by spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism, discipleship, and world missions. We desire that every believer would be equipped with the confidence and the tools to share their faith.

MISSION STATEMENT: "Reaching the lost with the Gospel of Christ and teaching others to do the same." VISION STATEMENT: "To know Him and Make Him known." Agents for Christ is fulfilling our mission through the following programs: TENTH HOUR PROJECT: A nine-month missional-discipleship program for young adults, ages 18-26, designed to unleash world changers in this next generation. Over 9 months, students will be equipped with a biblical worldview, helping them to defend and share their faith, be given hands on training in evangelism and outreach, teaching them to engage the lost in their own culture, and also be given an opportunity for cross-cultural missions in Uganda. After 9 months, students will walk away with a greater perspective on the purpose for their life; whether they're called to be a pastor or a plumber, God wants them to be ready to live a life on mission for Him. UGANDA KIDS PROJECT: Reaching Uganda's most marginalized by providing a Christ-centered education, medical care, and basic necessities. Child sponsors partner with us in this Gospel centered approach to caring for the lost and destitute. This program is also effective to mobilize the body of Christ through many opportunities for short and long term missions. GOTTRACTS.COM: Equipping and mobilizing the body of Christ to evangelize by providing them with evangelism training tools and resources. EVANGELISM MINUTE: A radio ministry providing tips and encouragement, mobilizing the Body of Christ to be actively seeking one-on-one evangelism encounters in their daily life. SCHOOL OF EVANGELISM: Presented during a regular church service or scheduled special event, this training class is a powerful tool to challenge and equip the body of Christ to share their faith. With an overview of WHY we share our faith and HOW we can share our faith (using a variety of methods and tools). COMMUNITY OUTREACH: After each School of Evangelism training, we mobilize the body of Christ to spend some time hitting the streets for hands on training in one-on-one, conversational evangelism. Often, we partner with churches to help them plan and facilitate larger outreach events in their communities, mobilizing the body to be a light in their community through love and service. AGENT TRAINING CAMP: Presented during a weekend seminar, this camp is designed for a more in-depth overview of evangelism and includes our School of Evangelism as well as practical hands on training tools and a planned street/community outreach with our team's guidance. This class is great for whole church bodies, youth groups and more.

CHURCH PARTNERS: Since 2008, we have continued to partner with hundreds of non-denominational churches across the USA. Our programs support pastors in the effort to train and mobilize their congregations to be equipped and effective to reach the lost in their communities. FINANCIAL PARTNERS: We have a healthy support base of those who have been impacted by our programs and see the need for the vision we have set before us. This dedicated base is faithful to partner with us to accomplish our mission and fund the ongoing work of the ministry. LEADERSHIP: Our team of pastors and field missionaries are well seasoned in the trenches of ministry work. Our thriving programs have been developed and sustained through their continued, faithful service.

Although we would be satisfied with the reality of just one soul coming to Christ, God has been faithful to reveal to us the fruit of our efforts. We continue to receive reports from many who have been impacted by our programs. We constantly receive communication from believers across the USA with stories of how our ministry has inspired them to share their faith, and the miraculous stories of how God led them in evangelism conversations that were effective to win souls for Christ. We see more of the same in Uganda. Through our evangelism and discipleship programs, the church continues to grow exponentially. Many souls are coming to Christ and being discipled, freeing them from addiction, witchcraft, poverty, etc. God is surely on the move!

ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Over the last ten years we have trained countless thousands in personal evangelism; each of those trained believers reaching scores of people with the Gospel. We have also trained churches on how to facilitate effective outreaches within their own communities. We now have approximately 500 children in our Uganda Kids Project program who are receiving the Gospel through a Christ-centered education, medical care and basic needs. This care and discipleship is provided to the whole family of each child in our program, effectively helping us to reach thousands for Christ. WHAT'S NEXT: Our newest ministry, Tenth Hour Project, aims to reach the next generation of world changers who will continue to spread the Gospel...to the ends of the earth!
