Travels widely to foreign countries, always to train pastors and leaders there in the process of world-visionary, world-impacting disciple-making in fulfilment of Christ’s Great Commission.

Accepts engagements on a “first call” basis. The church will be responsible for travel and living expenses while there, and the pastor or leaders will supervise the love offering.
Will work closely with the pastor and in full support of him and his ministry. Will always seek to work in full dependence upon the Holy Spirit and the truth of God, depending on Him to work the miracle of communication through the preacher and the miracle of reception in the listeners.
