"He that winneth souls is wise"
**** News**** Dr. James Gardner went home to be with the Lord on July 8th, 2009.
If you will allow me to take a moment to tell you how I came to be moved by God to start Amazing Grace Mission. Having an intense desire to see people saved I founded this Mission more than 20 years ago. By the grace of God and by His will, I had the vision of bringing the Lord Jesus Christ into the market-place in every state in the United States. By 2004 AGM was ministering in all 50 states, and has seen over 20,000 people make professions of salvation in Christ Jesus in each of the last 5 years. Amazing Grace Mission has become one of the most “used of God” ministries in America helping men, women, and children come to saving grace through Jesus. Now we are asking you to pray in support of our expanded vision of reaching the world through market place ministries.
As the saying goes, “give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for life,” and that is the expanded vision of AGM, teaching people how to fish for men(Matt 4:19). If more people learn how to fish for men, the more God will use His people to bring in a draught (Luke 5:5). The harvest is truly great, but the labourers are few, pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest (Luke 10:2). How can a person catch fish if they haven’t been taught how to fish. One man said after working in one of AGM’s fair booths for a couple of days at the “Big E” fair (Springfield, Massachusetts), “this is like soul winning boot camp.” Another said, “You have to see it to believe it,” as he finished working several days at the Florida State Fair. AGM’s vision is to train thousands of people to fish for men.
Using the methods God has blessed in the winning of souls in the market place, the expanded vision of AGM is to accelerate the recruitment and training of new “soul winners” to move into the market place worldwide where the fields “are white already to harvest (John 4:35).” As you examine this website for information on AGM please remember the fields are ripe and the fish are there, all we have to do is go pick the fruit or catch the fish. God has already prepared the harvest; all we have to do is GO! I would ask that you would pray with us for labourers to go and for the financial needs of this expanded vision. What it will take to accomplish this vision cannot come from us, it has to come from God, it’s too big for us. Please read through this website and pray with us for the resources needed to accomplish the purpose and will of God. Thank you.
For the Salvation of Souls,
Dr. James H. Gardner
Founder, Amazing Grace Mission
