“What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2 (ESV)
ZOE’s vision for leadership training includes three schools: a Bible school for ministry, a school of business and leadership, and a school for vocational, media, and the arts. The graduates shall be primarily nationals prepared in their calling and ready to influence their nation for Jesus Christ and equipped to reach their generation with the gospel of Christ. We also train missionaries and provide placement for them in the mission field. Our ministry school is curriculum based and is therefore able to be extended into mobile Bible schools throughout the nations.
“But when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and withdrew the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. And this continued for two years, so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.” Acts 19:9-10
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 (ESV)
World Prayer Center, Prayer Invasion Teams, Network of Prayer. ZOE’s vision for prayer ministry includes operating a world prayer center where prayer will be offered to God continuously with the emphasis on prayer for the lost souls of humanity, the expansion of the church worldwide, and the abolishment of human trafficking globally. Our vision also includes sending prayer invasion teams that represent the first phase of ZOE’s “Apostolic Ministry Teams” strategy. These teams of intercessory prayer warriors will saturate a city through prolonged and powerful prayer. They will pull down demonic strongholds and pray for God’s kingdom to invade the area. We will network with churches and other prayer ministries who share our passion to see God glorified in all the earth.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. Psalm 2:8 (ESV)
I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16 (ESV)
Evangelistic Outreaches, Campus Outreach Ministry, Concerts, Films, Media and the Arts, Bible and Christian Literature Distribution. ZOE’s vision for evangelism ministry is to bring eternal life through the Gospel to lost humanity. Evangelistic ministry also includes evangelistic ministry teams as phase two of our “Apostolic Ministry Teams” strategy. These teams penetrate a city through evangelistic and miracle gatherings, street evangelism, campus outreach ministry, the use of the arts – concerts, films, drama, dance, television, radio, and mass Bible literature distribution. We primarily target children to young adults who comprise the most receptive and greatest harvest field on earth. Our goal is to invite churches and other ministries to join us in a concentrated effort as we synergistically share in a nameless work for the Name of Christ.
And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. Acts 2:47 (ESV)
So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied. Acts 9:31 (ESV)
Establishing Churches—Ordaining Pastors Spiritual Oversight and Accountability Continued Support through Church Growth Specialty Teams Church Research and Resource Center Church and Community Center Construction
ZOE’s vision for discipleship ministry is to grow disciples in all we do, to build Christ’s Church, and is part of the last phase of our “Apostolic Ministry Teams” strategy. Discipleship ministry teams consist of trained ministry workers planting indigenous churches in newly harvested cities. The churches are part of an apostolic network where oversight and accountability are consistently managed. Some of those in our vocational training program are equipped to build churches upon graduation. Our goal is to have a state-of-the-art church research and resource center to provide churches with continued support and proven innovations in church ministry. These churches are not to be merely houses of worship, but community centers that provide for the various needs of their communities. This church network will include house churches and home cell groups, and a curriculum that disciples new believers from no knowledge of Christianity to a mature knowledge of Christ.
So the churches were strengthened in the faith, and they increased in numbers daily. Acts 16:5 (ESV)
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16 (ESV)
ZOE’s vision for secular ministry is to reach out to the business world, the educational community, and government by involving ourselves in serving those sectors. We do this by providing services that are of interest to them while giving us the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. These services will include business and leadership seminars featuring expert motivational speakers, English language training to help satisfy the global interest in English, J.O.Y. Clubs (“Jesus, Others, You”) that teach children English and the Bible, and humanitarian aid including medical missions. These will all give secular society relevant success strategies integrated with the Gospel right where they live.
But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. James 2:18 (ESV)
“Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked.” Psalm 82:3-4 (NKJV)
ZOE’s comprehensive approach includes:
ZOE Children’s Homes exists to end the human trafficking of children globally. We rescue and provide safe and loving homes to orphans in danger and children who are trafficked or at-risk of being trafficked. ZOE’s child rescue department collaborates with governmental and non-governmental agencies in the prevention and intervention of child trafficking. Our aftercare includes secure facilities, holistic rehabilitation, Christian values, high quality academics, vocational and life skills training, excellent health care and nutrition. Most importantly, we provide a family environment where children are nurtured and loved unconditionally by a selfless child care staff. This enables each child to heal from their past and gives them hope to plan for the future and dream about a brighter tomorrow. We accept children of all ages, 0 – 17 years. In addition, we provide continued support and care for our ZOE children 18 years or older pursuing higher education.
ZOE currently serves domestically in the USA and internationally in Asia.
“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy habitation.” Psalm 68:5 (NKJV)
‘Then He 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.”’ Matthew 9:37-38
ZOE’s mission’s ministry has the purpose of raising awareness of modern Christian world missions and stirring up a passion to reach our world for Christ. We believe that is it our responsibility as today’s Christians to reach our own generation with the gospel. We are available to preach and teach in churches, Bible studies, mission’s conferences and other venues in order to impart this burning mandate on the Church. We also have an excellent short-term missions program for churches and individuals including fun and adventurous mission’s trips in the un-reached regions of the world.
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10:14-15
