The Mission

The purpose, first and foremost, is to bring honor and glory to the Kingdom of God. John Ed will accomplish this by speaking at churches, conferences, and leadership training programs on a local, national and global scale. He will also be participating in leadership activities within the United Methodist Church. One of the major objectives of this ministry will be to provide training opportunities for young pastors. He will share with them the best practices that he has developed over the last forty-five years. We believe that John Ed, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, can affect the Kingdom of God in such a way in the next few years as to exceed all his previous outstanding accomplishments.
