Groundworks Ministries Update

September/October 2021




Dear Groundworks Ministries partners,



THANK YOU for your ongoing prayers, participation, and support. I want to reaffirm to you that the time you spend in God’s Word every day is absolutely WORTH IT!


Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”


We received this encouraging message last month, written in a card from one of our monthly Groundworks Ministries supporters:

“I just want you to know how much the {Groundworks Ministries} Bible Challenge has meant to me. I have learned so much about the Old Testament that a lifetime in Sunday School and the church had not taught me. I know God has used the Holy Spirit for teaching me. These are precious times when He speaks to my heart. It has made me overflowing with things I begin to share, and people notice the difference. Before my Dad died last year he told me that the things I shared had renewed his need to read the Bible.”

This is EXACTLY why Groundworks Ministries exists! We set up daily appointments between Christians and the Holy Spirit through God’s Word which nurtures a deeper personal love for God and other people. It's the foundation of both personal discipleship and the Great Commission. There is no better MISSIONS investment, either local or international, than when the people of God invest in the Word of God, as taught by the Holy Spirit. Your participation in that simple yet diligent discipline is vital to reaching your family, our cities, our nation & beyond!




PRAISE REPORTS, PRAYER NEEDS, & ACTION ITEMS



1. Mid-Week "Bible Challenge" Study

An overwhelming number of people asked me to resume the “live & in-person” Bible Challenge Study, and beginning Wednesday, September 8th, we were finally able to REGATHER for our Bible Challange in-person meetings. We meet weekly at B'rit Hadasha in East Memphis at 6:30 pm. It is the perfect place for our study and provides room to grow. Come join us and bring a friend!


**Please PRAY that the Lord will continue to accommodate the growing number of people who are hungry for God’s Word!

2. Groundworks Ministries Podcast

Podcasting has become the most impactful and cost-effective way to connect with people of all generations. Many of you do not use Facebook because you do not trust it. And rightly so!

Although our influence on Facebook has grown and daily we reach over 3,000 people with God’s Word, Facebook has become increasingly intolerant of people who speak Biblical truth. Now is the time to expand our Gospel reach and spread our daily Bible discipleship efforts!


With Groundworks Ministries podcasting, which will be accessible in multiple ways online, you will be able to watch and hear daily Bible devotions and teachings like a television show instead of simply reading it. You will also be able to share it with your friends and family through email and texting.

The Groundworks Ministries Podcast is slated to launch, January 1, 2022, beginning in Matthew 1.


**Please PRAY that God will use the Groundworks Ministries podcast and bless our efforts as we endeavor to podcast every chapter of the Bible over the next 5 years. Pray that God will continue to send the right people and necessary funds to help us execute this massive undertaking so anyone from anywhere in the world can access accurate and comprehensive teaching of any chapter of the Bible at any time.

3. Monthly Giving

I recently had a conversation with a delightful woman who called me from her financial planner's office, as she was designating giving for 2022. She has been involved in a Groundworks Ministries Group for several years. During our chat, she asked me, “Steve, do you actually need financial support?” My answer was just as simple and honest as her question, “Yes. Groundworks Ministries absolutely needs financial support, and I am trusting that the Lord will lead people like you to partner with us.” We are deeply grateful for those who seek the Lord and strongly consider how they invest what has been entrusted to them.


There are considerable expenses involved in building a ministry from the ground up. Misti & I have personally invested our lives in Groundworks Ministries. We have been given a torch to lead the church-at-large back to the Bible. God has given us His Word, His marching orders, and His assurance that Revival will break out if His people will seek Him and share the Gospel.

Matthew 9:37-38 “Then Jesus said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”


**Please pray about financially supporting Groundworks Ministries.  We are confident that the Lord has so much in store, and we need your prayers, participation, and ongoing monthly financial support to continue.  Your donation is an investment that enables the transformation of others, just as you are experiencing!

Many blessings,
