Impacting the World with the Gospel
Project 14 derived its name from Romans 10:14 which says, "How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?"
Our goal is to BUILD Bible colleges, TRAIN nationals, and SEND Christians around the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Beginning in Nicaragua and spreading to other parts of the world, it is our mission to proclaim redemption through Jesus Christ by ministries of word and deed. Ministries of deed are indispensable because a living and saving faith must manifest itself in deeds of righteousness and compassion for the poor and needy (James 2:14).
We desire to partner with like-minded Christians to evangelize, equip, and encourage nationals around the world to establish New Testament churches. P14GM strives to be a place where the Word of God can be heard, the love of God can be felt, and the name of God can be exalted. Through the P14GM initiative, churches, colleges, camps, and various other ministry centers can be established for the glory and praise of Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Local Church
We believe every Christian ought to be an involved and integral part of their local church and working to advance the mission of the church world-wide. Each team member for P14GM must be a member in good standing with their local assembly and be aware of the importance and authority of the church. It is our goal to train Baptist pastors and leaders to establish conservative, reasonable, gracious, doctrinally-strong churches with a zeal for souls, a love for God, and grace as a lifestyle. P14GM will be involved in an aggressive church planting strategy world-wide and will be providing sustained evaluation and assistance to establish local churches.
Our main emphasis is to build a model strategy in Nicaragua that can be duplicated around the world. While efforts can begin elsewhere, our worldwide vision can never distract us from perfecting our interests in this region. We have many Nicaraguan and Latin American friends and colleagues who have already partnered with us for these causes and are actively assisting in the strategies regionally and locally. Nicaragua is the heartbeat and burden of our leadership team and we are fully committed to coming alongside our Nicaraguan brethren to see God reveal Himself fully to these dear people and have the churches and believers experience a great revival.
Global Bible University and OneLife Christian Camps
It is our goal to provide quality and affordable education and experiences for those pursuing Christian character and leadership. By establishing premier college campuses and camp ministries, national leadership can take advantage of opportunities to strengthen their church, build character in their young people, and provide opportunities for spiritual growth. Our sixteen-acre campus in Matagalpa, Nicaragua will provide an initial student capacity of up to 100 students per year and hundreds of camper guests per event. Each campus will provide current technologies and resources.
Equipping and Encouraging
People need ministry tools to effectively, efficiently, and with excellence, move from a casual Christian observer to an integral, impacting Christian leader. It is our goal to provide assistance to encourage the church to be fully equipped to advance the grace of God in their culture. P14GM currently provides block ministry classes and will accelerate other ministry programs and efforts to help each leader be encouraged in their work for the Lord. Our goal is to train each servant to be a leader and train each leader to be a servant. By providing biblically based, balanced ministry models, the world can be reached with the Gospel.
Supporting and Adopting
Our primary focus is to invest in nationals to do the work of the Lord in their own countries. P14GM provides opportunities for already established mission-minded churches to adopt a community, a pastor, or an international church plant. With proper training, tools, and structure, national leadership is far better equipped to help evangelize their people and establish self-supporting ministries.
Our fellow Christians around the world, along with multitudes who live life without Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord, are hungry for physical relief and are starving for spiritual hope. P14GM is willing to strategically consider opportunities to network with successful business people and burdened churches to help advance the Gospel through the meeting of physical and spiritual needs worldwide. Jesus Christ would often meet the physical needs around Him for the purpose of revealing Himself and His greater purpose for their lives. It is our interest to meet physical needs for the purpose of revealing the majesty and glory of Jesus Christ, all the while, knowing that meeting physical needs should always give us a chance to demonstrate the love and mercy of God.
We encourage and coordinate life-impacting trips with church groups, families, and individuals who desire to make a difference in this world. These trips are used to evangelize those without Jesus Christ and exercise spiritual gifts to advance the Gospel in a different culture. We believe every church should sponsor an annual missions trip to encourage mission intensity in their people, to open the eyes of church leadership to vast needs world-wide, to establish a heart for missions, and to accomplish tangible projects on the field.
We desire to offer an alternative approach to missions that provides greater levels of transparency and evaluation. We are willing to address difficult mission and ministry issues, inefficient and awkward methodologies, and difficult personal and organizational tendencies, so that limited resources can be invested more effectively and efficiently. We believe that Christian leaders should courageously address issues that divide, hinder, and prevent evangelistic and church planting efforts. Our goal is that Jesus Christ be glorified in every effort, multitudes of stable churches be established, mission strategies are revised and adopted, and conservative, Baptist churches become more organized and unified so that worldwide missions can be accomplished better than before.
Project 14 Global Missions is challenged to advance the message of Christ Jesus and establish New Testament models of church ministry worldwide. While we seek to train God’s people to evangelize their communities and establish sound, Baptist churches, it is our desire that these investments yield long-term, sustainable, and self-supporting models worthy of the favor of Jesus Christ. We are fully committed to measure everything we do according to sound Scriptural scrutiny. We are not unwilling to explore creative opportunities, methodologies, and applications which allow P14GM to accomplish its goal of worldwide evangelism, equipping national believers to the do the work of the ministry, and establishing conservative, relevant, and biblically-sound churches around the world.
