We started Life Factors Ministries in 2008 to spread hope to fatherless homes. Over the past decade, we have led fatherless families to the Heavenly Father nationally through spreading awareness, creating unique resources, speaking, and partnering with other ministries. We are very burdened about this call, and we believe it is why God created me, why He allowed me to grow up fatherless, and why He brought me through it with only a few scars.
God has made it abundantly clear that this ministry is drastically needed in the United States and that it is time for us to go on a national tour! Since January I have been contacting churches and other organizations about our ministry, and the result has been incredible! I am honestly amazed at the tremendous response we have received. God has told us to "Go," and it is evident that He has been working on individuals hearts before we get to them! Because of this great response, we have various speaking engagements scheduled all over the country in 2019 and are starting to book meetings for 2020! Over the next several years we will be traveling all over America! During our travels we will be spreading awareness and educating about fatherlessness, equipping churches, Christian schools, and future ministry leaders to better minister to these families, we will be providing encouraging resources directly to the fatherless, and we will be speaking messages of hope at various venues such as youth detention centers, prisons, Christian schools, public schools, churches, and conferences. We will basically be an evangelistic ministry with a specific focus on the number one social issue in our country, fatherlessness.
OUR NEXT STEPS:
The next step for our ministry is to go on this national tour! What does this mean? It means our whole life is about to change! Here are a few of the changes we will be making:
Finish at Colonial Baptist Church: We will be leaving Colonial Baptist Church at the end of 2018. Please pray for them to find a great new Student Pastor!
Giving up Our Home: Our lease for our rental ends in October and around this time we will be moving out and staying with my inlaws until the end of December.
Downsizing Our Possessions: We are so confident that this is God's will for our family that we are downsizing almost everything we own. Thankfully most of our furniture is hand-me-downs! This has been tough but needed as we won't have much room for personal items.
Getting our Truck and Fifth-Wheel: We never imagined we would live in a fifth-wheel and travel like this, but after much prayer, this is the best way to do this ministry. When we traveled before for this ministry, I was forced to do much of the travel on my own, and we believe that this is not the way God wants us to do this ministry. I don't want to make my children fatherless while I am traveling around spreading hope to the fatherless. At the beginning of January 2019, we will be leaving in our truck with our fifth-wheel headed to our first meeting on January 3rd!

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:
One thing we have learned over the years is not to try and go on these journey's alone. We need individuals to partner with us in prayer and financial support.
PRAYER - We have already seen much opposition from the devil as we have been working on this transition. Satan has a grip on this issue in our country. He does not want fatherless families reached. He does not want single moms and grandparents raising their grandchildren helped by local churches. He doesn't want churches to get trained and receive the needed resources to evangelize and disciples these families. He doesn't want us to speak messages of hope to these individuals. However, God wants these families reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ! God wants to be the Dad for these families! God wants to set these families free! We NEED and WANT your prayers! Please pray for us during this transition and as we go full-time!
SCHEDULE US - Our open 2019 dates are filling up quickly! We are currently scheduling speaking at churches for regular services, family conferences, and missions conferences. We are also scheduling speaking in prisons, youth detention centers, public & Christian schools, colleges, seminaries, youth conferences, pastors conferences, and some others. If you would like to schedule us for an event in 2019 or 2020 contact us here.
FINANCIAL PARTNERS - This transition is very costly and it includes the purchase of a reliable truck and a fifth-wheel that is set-up and built for full-timers that can handle the weight of our ministry resources such as books, display materials, marketing materials, t-shirts, and some other items. We desire to go full-time without any debt. Would you consider becoming a Hope for Fatherless America National Tour Sponsor or begin partnering with us monthly? Nevertheless, we believe that God is in this transition and He is going to provide, but we must do our part and ask! *Life Factors Ministries is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
