Three weeks after my eight year old Son Gavin passed away, I was sitting in my chair having a quiet moment alone with God when I sensed that now was time to make a transition back into full time Ministry. This transition would be from the amazing business we have been blessed with, to follow the call of God on our lives to establish a ministry to serve both the churched and unchurched through the powerful message of Faith, Hope, and Love. Over the past 20 years I have functioned in several different ministry roles from serving as a volunteer to being an Executive Pastor of Operations for a mega church. I have seen the church up close as a Pastor and from a distance as a businessman, since establishing my finance company in early 2011. The “why” of Faith Builders International came from a place of tragedy where the Spirit of the Lord spoke to my heart and reminded me of our conversations years ago to help build His Church; by establishing a supportive Pastoral/Evangelistic Ministry to serve Church’s, Pastors, Leaders, and Individuals all over the World with the message of Building Faith, Restoring Hope, and Extending Love. It is the message of faith that changed my personal life many years ago and saved my spiritual life at the time of the greatest tragedy I’ve personally ever known. This ministry is mandated to teach and preach sound and Biblical teachings, from a place of faith. It is from this place, hope can be expressed in love to a lost and dying world.
Being moved by an emotion never changes a life (heart) but a revelation of God’s Word brings transformation. From this life of transformation comes a closeness with the Lord. God isn't looking for the hype of being the coolest church, but for a church that desires to be close to Him. It is in this place of closeness that faith becomes more than a word, thought, or principle but it becomes a lifestyle. As we establish the “why” of Faith Builders International it is imperative that we establish that Faith in God is a lifestyle in which Jesus invites us to every single day. It is in the everyday routine of life that we have opportunities to trust in God. Trials, challenges, and circumstances may come and it is in these times when people can feel lost, broken, hurt, and in a place of despair. It is our desire to help build faith in a transparent way, that will serve the Church, helping them run to God and not from Him. “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” -Hebrews 11: 6 (NLT)
We invite you on this journey with us as we serve Churches, Pastors, Leaders, Individuals, and Families with transparency and authenticity with this great message of Faith!
