Ministry history: The slogan “WITH THE WORLD IN MIND AND YOU AT HEART” is the driving theme for Jack and Donna Richards. This has led them to think, breathe and love WINNING people to Jesus Christ, BUILDING them up in the faith, and SENDING them out to WIN, BUILD, SEND. They still believe that the Church of Jesus Christ to be the greatest source of energy to bring about change in the world. Through preaching, teaching and training people in the local church, they are committed to WIN, BUILD and SEND.
With these goals in mind, the Richards have ministered full time on national, regional, and local levels in Canada and have pastored churches in the United States and Canada. In addition, they have also ministered in Northern Canada, Russia, Kenya, the Dominican Republic, England, Scotland and Slovakia.
Ministry Focus: Now Jack and Donna are using their pastoral giftings on an international scale to help build Jesus Christ’s Church which is visible in local churches around the world. God has directed them to be available to assist full time missionary pastors of international, English speaking churches. These servants of God need to take a break to get REFRESHED, RENEWED, and REKINDLED. As you know, global workers/missionaries are a very special people in God’s eyes. They leave everything that is familiar to them in their homeland and take the Gospel to the corners of the world. Often, missionary pastors find it very difficult to get an extended break from ministry for fear of losing church momentum or church unity. Jack and Donna provide an opportunity for pastors, wives and families of international English speaking churches to REFRESH, RENEW, and REKINDLE themselves by stepping away from their leadership role for a short period of time. The Richards become the interim pastor and “shepherd” the English speaking congregations while these global workers return to their home base or find a place of rest somewhere else.
Please feel free to contact the Richards if you sense a leading of God to be involved in this mission. Prayer and financial support are key to them going. Please follow them on Pastor Jack and Donna/Facebook.
