Building the Church
This summer we have been busy traveling around the United States! We have been ministering in churches in Missouri and Oklahoma. Teaching at RMAI (Rhema Ministerial Association International) retreats in Minnesota and Oklahoma. We were a part of a Global Ministry gathering of over 25 ministries. We attended Rhema’s annual Campmeeting, where a lot of our teams attend or watch online from around the world!
We attended a prayer summit in Colorado, and met with some individuals and National, Regional and Continental Teams via Zoom!
We were aware this summer, as...
30 years since we moved to Germany!
Last month we reached a milestone. It was 30 years since we moved to Germany. We stand in awe and wonder at all God has done in these 30 years… from our hearts being set on Germany, to Europe, and now all of Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Thank you for your part in all of this. We work with amazing leaders whom have helped plant and facilitate 66 bible schools in 24 nations, with 9000+ current students and 12800+ graduates. Our focus is and always has been on bible schools, church planting training, leadership training and book translations and I...
Precious time in the Congo!
During June we were in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Poland and France teaching students, ministering in churches and speaking at a graduation. The bible school classes are usually larger in Africa than Europe. Congo has more than 300 students. It doesn’t matter the size of the class since all students are hungry for more every where we go. Watch below for a quick hello from us while we were there.
It was great to be with the teams in each nation and see the fruit being produced. Students are growing in Christ, teams are being trained and individuals...

Fruitful Meetings in Africa!
At the end of April, Michelle and our team member Amelia headed to Nigeria to attend and help facilitate the RHEMA Africa Continental Directors Meetings. These meetings brought together 6 nations of teams and focused on strategizing for the growth of Africa, prayer, fellowship, and cross-training so that each nation can learn from one another.
Greater European Book Project Updates
Recently we have had several GEBP books completed. This is a long and expensive process of translating, proofing and printing, so there is cause for much celebration with...
Some highlights this year so far:
The first couple of months of the year were plenty busy for us, as it included travel overseas and meetings with a large group of the leaders we work with. Below are some other highlights we’re excited about.
2 new campus approvals!
In February, RBTC Beirut, Lebanon was approved. Though there is still a lot of work to be done before the school opens, we are celebrating with our teams in this region as this is a huge step for the Middle East.
In March, RHEMA Nigeria’s 9th campus approval came through. Nigeria currently has 2000+ graduates and 6000+...
As we quickly move further into 2023, we have great expectations for this year. We are planning on being in at least 8 countries this year, doing what we have always done: training leaders for Bible schools and churches, working with our teams, making new contacts for new schools, and working on translating books. It will be a busy year, but the fruit will be lives changed and souls brought into the kingdom.

For most of November, we were in Europe, visiting our teams in Latvia, Poland, Germany, and the Netherlands. It is an amazing thing to see the fruit of so many years of sowing into these nations. Thank you for partnering with us to extend your reach into Europe, Africa & the Middle East! Below is a quick update.
Poland & Latvia
As you may know by now, the RHEMA Bible Training College in both Poland & Latvia officially launched this September. We were able to go see the school in person and teach a few classes. These students were hungry for the Word. When we were in Poland,...
The Bible will always be our number one book but there are so many more that in one way or another amplified some teaching from the Bible.
Through the years we probably all find definition to Vision, Mission and Strategies. We believe we are to take the message of Faith in God to the nations and most of the time we focus on Europe, Africa and the Middle East geographically.
What we do to spread this message of Faith in God is we Plant Bible Schools, Train Church Planters, Train Leaders and Print books. In different seasons we may focus more on one of these areas than another. When I say...
