Go To Nations Vice-President of Ministries
1990 Graduates of Christ For The Nations

In 1987 we sold or gave away almost everything we owned, packed up our two young children, and moved more than 1,000 miles to Dallas as newly enrolled students at CFNI. We each realized for the very first time that whole nations remained untouched with a witness for Christ, and that if God so chose, he could use us to make a difference in those nations.

All that God was doing came together when Don Simms spoke for Missions Emphasis week. Don was a CFNI graduate, a protégé of Wayne Meyers, and one of the founding members of Go To Nations. If Christ for the Nations was the launching pad to missions, then Go To Nations was the vessel that would carry us. We soon found that CFNI and GTN were already working closely together all over Latin America. Several CFNI grads held significant roles with GTN and regularly returned to Dallas to extend the call to the nations and recruit future missionaries. Don was on his way to Asia to expand GTN’s reach around the world. A move that would also expand CFNI’s reach deep into Asia.

We graduated from Christ For The Nations in 1990 and joined Go To Nations that summer. By spring of 1991 we were living in Manila, Philippines, and part of the leadership team for GTN’s first Bible School in Asia. Over the next couple of years I became the Bible School Director, then the Team Leader, and by 1994 the Regional Director for all of Asia. Deep in my heart, I carried a passion and understanding for the nations that CFNI put there. As I came to know GTN as a ministry, I found it to be the embodiment of the mission, vision, and values of CFNI. At a core level, they were and are one in the same, CFNI as the sending body, and GTN as the goer. GTN equips and mobilizes emerging spiritual leaders in every nation where we work. With over 24,000 Bible School graduates, we see one new church plant for every two graduates. Nations are being changed!

As I grew in leadership, I would return to Christ For The Nations to speak whenever I could, just as those before me had done to extend the call to the nations and recruit future missionaries. By the late 90’s almost every significant team or ministry leader we had all over Asia was a CFNI grad. They each carried a passion and vision for their nations that was and continues to be relentless. GTN continues to recruit heavily at CFNI to provide internships to fulfill their school requirements and to prepare graduates for success in missions. On the following pages we want to highlight the ongoing Christ for the Nations and Go To Nations connection. It is our belief that “whatever is born of God overcomes in this world.” Both Christ For The Nations and Go To Nations are born of God with a mandate to have an eternal impact in the nations. We have a God who ordained DIVINE PARTNERSHIP. Together our future will be far more significant than our past.
