Christian Service

Supporting missions, missionaries and being on mission at home and around the world is something that Dr. Stone feels is the biblical mandate given to all Christians. It is God’s plan in this world to establish new churches and bring new believers to Christ.  In fact, it was the mission given by Jesus himself as he described in the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-39 and the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20.

Dr. Stone has lead teams to the following locations where he has preached the gospel, trained pastors, taught seminary classes, ministered in prisons and schools, and shared the gospel door to door.
