Witness Breakthrough Background

Ministry History


OUR GOAL:

​​​​​​​
Our goal should be the same as God himself:

To love people so much we give them Jesus. [John 3:16]

During the past 40+ years as a Christian Evangelist I have learned:
We humble ourselves and give preference to other's thoughts
by
asking meaningful questions, listening intently,
and falling in love with their souls
.
We are then compelled by
love,
not duty, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.


PERSONAL BACKGROUND:


Ted's Testimony:


"I grew up in a home that has been broken four times. I never knew my real father,
and was a staunch
atheist.  I graduated with a degree in Psychology. At age 23

I read a Bible that a Chaplain gave me for over two weeks. For the first time in 
my life I knew I was a
sinner and needed a Savior. I claimed Jesus Christ as my 
Lord and Savior. My life was changed dramatically.


As a Christian I became very involved in an organization called CBMC (Christian
 Business Men's Committee). I eventually served on both the National and International
Boards of CBMC. My involvement in CBMC provided several
role models who showed me
how to live the Christian life as a
tentmaker in the business world. (Tentmaker:
 one is dedicated to the ministry of the Gospel, yet is employed in another job 
to provide support). I was a tentmaker  for 30+ years.


For the past 14 years I have been in full time ministry with Witness Breakthrough.
In total I've been privileged to speak at outreach events, preach, and train throughout
America in
44 states and 200+ cities.

​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​A few unusual speaking venues I've spoken to: inside NORAD in Colorado Springs, 
CO, inside the
Mormon Temple in Independence, MO, at Fort Stewart, GA (to all enlisted
men and women and their officers), at an international annual meeting of the
Gideon's
worldwide
in Washington D.C., and to the Leadership Breakfast in St. Charles (adjacent
St. Louis) on
9/11. Following my speech to 800 the 2 large monitors in the ballroom
displayed live footage of the horror taking place in New York and elsewhere. My 
predetermined speech had been changed at 2 am the night before to
'In a Snap, Your
Life Can Change'
. I gave my speech on this topic right before the 9/11 tragedy unfolded!​​​​​​​"

to encourage fellow believers. The goal is to have believers become
"John 3:16 witnesses"
for Christ, compelled by love to share Jesus where they

"live, move, and have their being" [Acts 17:28].

These weekly emails encourage readers to study and apply our latest
