Since its beginning the Shield of Faith has considered the work of the Lord a non-competitive arena; those who preach the true gospel are members of the same body, with the same head, proclaiming the same kingdom. They are neither competitors nor adversaries, but co-workers. However, we hold certain distinctive principles that we feel are important to preserve.
These are the five distinctives (which can be read in full here):
The New Testament Church Vision
Verbal Inspiration of Scripture and the Unnecessity of Multiple Versions
The Principle of Faith
Defining the Missionary
Disciple-making Resulting in Churches
Our original approach to the work and what we still teach in the training program involves five “steps,” namely: 1. Evangelism, 2. Follow-up, 3 Conferences, 4. Training, 5. Sending.

As we age, we have tweaked the ministry several times. As of now I would say that 2 Timothy 2:1-3 pretty well sums up our ministry of late. Having lived in Cote D’Ivoire and Ghana as well as some in Togo and Senegal around 37 years, we are quite familiar the area. We lived in a remote village for several years taking the gospel to that particular ethnic group. Presently, the ministry has evolved into more of a teaching one.
Believers in that part of the world are for the most part not grounded in the scriptures thus leading them to be tossed to and fro by the winds of the prosperity gospel. Now I am teaching key teaching elders from a number of assemblies scattered in the afore mentioned countries in at least three languages with whom, by the grace of God, I am able to communicate.
I call myself the foundation man as I seek to have the believers more firmly established in sound doctrine by including seminars which I usually label “The Eternal Plan of God.” These teaching seminars usually last around a week to ten days, and they build on each other. This is a biblical approach to multiply our efforts to pass the baton to the next generation. Read more
