If you were to ask, “What is the one thing that I most dislike about being an itinerant evangelist, perhaps at the top of the list would be the financial challenges. You see, SHEA has never been in the budget of a local church which means that free-will offerings and donations have sustained our ministry for almost 50 years. As you may have guessed, once or twice a year, it has been necessary to make folks aware of that fact and to remind them that while God is our Provider, He uses human instrumentality to do it. Many years ago, I was one of ten evangelists invited for an 8- hour roundtable discussion with some of Billy Graham’s key staff during both his Pittsburgh and Philadelphia crusades. When addressing BGEA’s financial policy, they said, “Through the years, we at BGEA have had a policy of informing people of our needs and then trusting God with the results.” If it is good enough for BGEA, then it’s good enough for SHEA.

Three Important Scriptures

First, Ephesians 4:11 emphatically states, “He Himself gave some to
be…..evangelists.” Evangelists are a gift to the Church and a refusal for local churches to utilize such men is to shun the gift that God offers to His Church. My calling, quite dramatic I might add, came from God on bended knees and an open Bible as a sophomore in college. It was, and still is, a biblical calling.

Second, in Luke 8:1-3 we are told that Jesus “went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God….and certain women who had been healed of evils spirits and infirmities—Mary called Magdalene, out of whom had come seven demons, and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who provided for Him from their substance.” (NKJV) Jesus was the Master Evangelist, the One who could turn water into wine, heal the blind, and raise the dead. Yet, He made Himself dependent upon the provision of Mary, Joanna, Susanna, and many others for the furtherance of His evangelistic ministry.

Third, 3 John 5-8 says, “Dear friend, you are being faithful to God when you care for the traveling teachers who pass through, even though they are strangers to you…..Please continue providing for such teachers in a manner that pleases God. For they are traveling for the Lord….So we ourselves should support them so that we can be their partners as they teach the truth.” (NLT)

Upon awakening me out of a deep sleep, the Lord called my name twice and spoke as clearly as any audible voice with the assignment of writing a curriculum on spiritual awakening. After four years of deep research, much prayer, and diligent writing, two 400-page volumes were published in December of 2023 and have received rave reviews. Since then, I have been preaching Awakening events with the understanding that the only hope in reversing America’s steep decline is to follow the pattern of 2 Chronicles 7:14.

Connect the dots: It is out of the heart that proceeds evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.” (Matt. 15:19) Only the Gospel can change the heart. Therefore, the Church is the epicenter, ground zero, for rescuing our nation from the implosion we are now witnessing. Ninety percent (according to the best research) of our pulpits are silent in addressing what ails America. This partially explains why the Church, herself, is in decline. Therefore, it is essential that the Church be revived with the prayerful expectation of igniting a spiritual awakening that spreads throughout our Land. The Asbury Revival in little Wilmore, Kentucky on February 8, 2023 lasted two weeks with approximately 15,000 visitors each day and impacting more than 200 academic institutions in multiple countries. The American populace is hungry and in dire need of a massive Heaven-sent awakening. This is the direction of my ministry.

In full disclosure, the need that we have at this moment is great in that we are striving to be proactive in sending thousands of mailouts to pastors, hundreds of awakening books to pastors…..all in attempt to wake us up. Time is of the essence. At the risk of sounding like an alarmist, we are standing at the most pivotal moment in American history since the days of the Civil War. Billy Graham identified this moment as one of the top four crises in our fight for survival. We are at stage four of the disease, a code blue moment. Politicians have no problem asking for our hard-earned money. Yet, there is no political action group and no amount of legislation that can dig us out of the suicidal hole we have dug for ourselves. Only God. Therefore, I humbly ask that you prayerfully consider joining hands with our ministry in an assignment that is far greater than any one of us. But together, we can make a difference. Snowflakes are frail, but if enough of them stick together, they can stop traffic. “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” (Prov. 11:25, NLT)

From the depth of my heart, thank you! God bless you!
