Will you Join the Movement?
Relational Discipleship Ministries believes that we accomplish more when we partner with ministries and leaders that possess a Kingdom vision to make disciples of Jesus Christ in the nations. We are so blessed and honored to partner with the following kingdom leaders who lead fruit-bearing ministries throughout the world.
Cruz and Keydi Paniagua, COG LATIN AMERICA CHURCH PLANTING
When you give to RDM International, you partner with us in providing the Relational Discipleship Series to church planters, pastors, and laity throughout Latin America. RDM also financially assists the Paniaguas in special projects throughout the year. For example, RDM recently made it possible for Venezuela refugee children now living in Quito, Ecuador, to have Christmas (see pix). Latin America has recently established a goal to plant 30,000 churches by 2030. A part of their overall strategy is to train their church planters in how to use the RDS to make disciples in these new churches. This is fruitful ground to sow your seed into.Please keep Latin America and the Paniaguas in your prayers.
Churches in Pakistan have translated the Relational Discipleship Series into their native language of Urdu. A project is underway to print books to distribute in all 250 Churches of God throughout Pakistan. In one church in particular, 105 members recently graduated earning RDS certificates prior to being licensed as Church of God ministers (see pix below). In 2020, we are raising funds (10K) to purchase 2000 RDS books.
FRIENDS OF HAITI
RDM has been training pastors, providing books for Haitian churches, and feeding thousands of hungry families in Haitian since 2015.
The Friends of HaiTi is a collaborative effort to support of the LaCroix New Testament Mission. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. More than two thirds of the people are unemployed and the average family income is $250.00 (US) per year.
The LaCroix New Testament Mission serves about 15,000 people in the surrounding rural community. It employs 148 people, 56 of which are teachers. The church serves 1,300 Christians through worship, Bible Studies and Sunday School.
The Friends of HaiTi is a non-profit organization, which insures that 100% of your donations go directly to the Haitian people.
The goal of Friends of HaiTi is to work in partnership with the people through clean water programs, medical support, construction and educational programs empowering the Haitian people to improve their quality of life, within their own culture.
We are dedicated volunteers who continue our relationship by offering financial support, education, medical care and hands-on support to serve the mission as well as informing Americans about the many needs of the Haitian people.
YOU TURN MINISTRIES
You Turn Ministries seeks to reach the lost in the last places. In order to do that we seek to live out the Lord’s mandate to us, given in the Great Commission. We seek to “make disciples” because disciples make disciples and churches plant churches. Our evangelistic efforts are always led with the same premise, we will not only preach the Good News but provide opportunities for discipleship and growth. You Turn Ministries has Pastor Training Schools stationed across Southeastern Africa for the purpose of training pastors in rural areas to plant healthy multiplying churches through effective evangelism and diligent discipleship. We are inviting you to join God as work in southeastern Africa as we share the Good News, train pastors, plant healthy growing churches, disciple the believers and meet physical needs such as clean fresh water.
Dr. Tim Orr has ministered with Crescent Project for five years, training Christians all over the Midwest how to reach Muslims for Jesus. His objective is to see every Muslim hear the Gospel and be a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. In today’s environment of fear and mistrust between religions and peoples, he seeks to follow the command of our Messiah Jesus, who said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” In that spirit, Dr. Orr shares the hope, love, and transformation that he found in Jesus and trains others to do the same. He has written three books, such as Islam Rising, We Named Her Faith, and Letters to My Daughter. He has a lovely wife, Monica, and two kids - Carlos and Faith.
Crescent Project recognizes the vulnerability and safety concerns of all who come to Christfrom a Muslim background, especially for women and their children. Addressing these critical issues requires asystematic approach to bring wholeness, producing new lives confidently growing and following Jesus as Savior and Lord.Conversations count, therefore, every step, every resource, every training event in our strategy serves to dispel fear ofengaging Muslims and fan the flame of life-changing relationships, person-to-person.
IMPACT NATIONS GLOBAL
After years of being a successful entrepreneur, Evangelist Jeffrey Battles, along with his wife Tiffany, knew that God had a different call on their lives. The Bible talks about the laborers being few. This became clear as every week passed, and the offerings continuously went towards upgrading lifestyles. Feeling that each passing day was a missed opportunity, God finally confirmed that it was time to GO! They gave up their business and many of their possessions and in 2018, Evg. Jeffrey went on his first mission to the Middle East.
Since then, Impact Nations Global has grown into one of the most active ministries, conducting dozens of missions each year. Those missions have resulted in millions of people having given their lives to Christ, hundreds of churches being built, and many villages have been provided with food, water, and education. Our rescue missions have brought families into safety and prosperity, and our discipleship program has trained many new believers to walk out their purpose and win the lost.
Dream Central is all about people. People begin to dream as children of what they want to be when they grow up. Some a teacher, a fireman, a policeman, a nurse or even a professional athlete… all revealing positive images already at work in their young minds. Children never speak of wanting to grow up to be a drug addict, an alcoholic, going to prison or living in poverty. While not their dream, many experience these conditions and become trapped in cycles of repeated misfortune.
Everyone needs help to overcome the dream thieves of life. Dream Central is committed to breaking negative cycles, inspiring lost dreams and empowering people.
