We believe that the “evangelical” church today has a very low view of God and we are committed to exalting Jesus Christ above all other things by attempting to challenge our reasoning to be more Christ centered. Henceforth, we pursue Nurturing A Christian Mindset In A Pagan World.
Our elder/pastor and the Amercan director of our overseas ministry, Theodoulos Church Planting, was ordained in 1984, has been the pastor of two churches and was also on staff at Buffalo City Mission for twenty years.
Brother Joe has made six trips to Poland, three trips to Ukraine and one trip to Romania serving as the main bible teacher at summer camps for young adults and working with local churches.
At his former church he organized a multi-ethnic conference for three years utilizing pastors from seven different ethnic groups teaching on multi-ethnic issues confronting the church. The City of Buffalo, Erie county and The Town of Amherst gave special recognition to these meetings. He has also been a workshop teacher at the Multi-racial conference in 2000 at Crossroads Bible College in Indianapolis, Dr. Charles Ware-president and served on a panel discussion concerning these matters at the regional Conservative Baptist Association Northeast. He has written articles on these issues which were published in two Christian newspapers and are available on our website.
He is one of the founding members of the Reformation Society of WNY which meets monthly at the Evangelical Church of Fairport.
Brother Joe has participated in two international think tanks on The Theology of The New Covenant and has hosted ten others as well as this years conference which will be held in in August in Western New York. He also participated in a conference in Australia in 2007.
Brother Joe and his wife Deborah taught a pastors and wives conference and did evangelistic work in the Philippines in April 2009. Joe returned to the Philippines in September 2010, October 2011 and October 2012, April 2014. Our 2013 trip was postponed due to rebel activity on the island in the city of Zamboanga. Our 2014 trip was very exciting with much new work to observe and new attendees at our conferences and the same can be said for 2015, 2016 and we will be there in 2017 in October. UPDATE: Because of an ISIS uprising in the city of Marawi, our partners have thought it best for us to postpone this years conferences until April 2018, unless something changes.
We now have 5 church plants and two more beginning as bible studies through our ministry – Theodoulos Church Planting Movement on Mindanao Island, and have been recognized by Christian Aid Mission as one of their listed Indigenous Missions. We are also in the process of planning our Pastor’s Training School.
Pastor Joe is also the co-author of A Rage To Live: Surviving The Holocaust So Hitler Would Not Win. It is an award winning book. www.tolifeink.com
