Awesome read! I would like training to be a lay person in my community, & to start God’s work through preaching. I love talking to all types of people.

Gregory February 12, 2019 at 5:09 pm

I am in same sex relationship, my live is in the Philippines and I wish to move to be with my partner, I am Christian, and wish to start a ministry for the LGBTQ community as I understand how difficult it can be to be accepted, my live and I truly love each other, and my wish is to help others come to the teachings of Jesus, omitting lust and carrying into love for one another, as well so wish to open a little cafe that will dedicate it’s time to extensive Bible studies and meeting place for all wealthy, poor, a place where church can help and eventually build a community that supports itself and helps others, please advise how I can get minimal funding, so that I may open the “Salt Of The Earth Cafe & Ministry” in the Philippines with my beloved partner, and preach the gospel to all who will listen

God bless


Jack Wellman February 12, 2019 at 10:08 pm

Hello Gregory. The truth is, you cannot practice a life of sexual immorality, like same sex relationships, and enter the kingdom (Gal 5:19-21). It is not possible. Read 1 John 3 and see that no true Christian continues to live in sin. You cannot teach the Word of God if you are not obeying the Word of God. Please repent of this and ask God to help you overcome this, and then you can begin your ministry.

Emmanuel February 24, 2019 at 12:29 pm

Hello Jack

Thank you for telling him the truth, for only the truth can set him free.

Gregory, Jesus loves you and died for you to be delivered from homosexuality. Repent and accept his love and you will experience a wave of joy, peace and love within.

Jack Wellman February 24, 2019 at 2:01 pm

Thank you my friend. I will pray with you for Gregory to repent of this.

Florence April 14, 2020 at 10:02 am

Sir thank you for telling Gregory the bold truth in love. I pray that God will open the eyes of his understanding in Jesus name

Jack Wellman April 14, 2020 at 10:06 am

You are so encouraging Florence. Thank you so much. I am praying with you for Gregory.

Crystal September 2, 2020 at 8:35 am

Pastor Jack,
Thank you for presenting the truth to Gregory. May he be set free. I am praying for you, Gregory, to.give up this life of sin to follow Jesus so you can have eternal life in heaven. God always gives us free will but loves each one of us so much that He gave us His precious Son to be that bridge. Life can change in an instant and you can end up in eternity. The way is narrow. It is Satan that distorts the truth so people continue in sin but our loving God provides us truth through His holy word.

Sara March 30, 2021 at 3:19 pm


Despite how other people have replied to your above comment, you can still be saved even if you still sin. We all sin; we all fall short. Christ Jesus died for us while we were still sinners. Our faith isn’t proved by our works. Only faith is required to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. I’m sorry if people have discouraged you by their judgemental comments. However, God is not pleased with your way of living, but that doesn’t mean He loves you any less. I pray that you are doing well and God opens your eyes. You can spread the gospel, but don’t condone your own sinful ways of living.

Jack Wellman March 30, 2021 at 3:28 pm

Thank you Sara for your godly words of wisdom and I do pray that your kind and loving words helped Gregory in his doubts. God bless you for that.

Jane smith February 27, 2019 at 4:18 pm

I would like to start up a ministry for single parent/broken families. my heart really goes out to single parent as I look and see their day to day struggles, and I have lived through the experience of being a single parent and so I want to give back to those singles, with my time and resources. how do I go about it.

Jack Wellman February 27, 2019 at 5:23 pm

Hello Jane, I would first of all tell your pastor and see if you can use church facilities for meetings and also see if other believer’s could join with you to help you in this. Most of the ministries I started were by me making many mistakes and not knowing what I was doing. Talk to social services, your church, even your doctor…Start by beginning a Bible study for Single Parents…in home or in the church somewhere or even the city community center.

andrew okolo March 12, 2019 at 12:23 pm

i am a 35 year old man.Things are really not going well for me.i have no money or job.i have been told several times by different servant of God that i have the call of God upon my life.i enrolled in a bible school but could not continue due to lack of finance.I need help and encouragement on how to go about this call.Thank you.

Jack Wellman March 12, 2019 at 12:47 pm

I would talk to your pastor about this. Anyone that God wants to go to Bible school, He will provide a way if it is His will.

Brian Kamelang May 9, 2019 at 8:18 am

I am attending a bible college right now. but after the college I have a desire to start a ministry that include youth and children.

Shiromi July 5, 2019 at 9:40 pm

I am from sri lanka .am always thinking to pass gods love to everybody .give his word to everybody. I really like to start a small ministry. How can I fo that

Della July 10, 2019 at 8:55 pm

This is my third year of going to Kenya and Uganda to minister. The services are scheduled/organized by 2 pastors there (one in Kenya, one in Uganda) My first trip was 3 weeks, second 86 days, 3rd 76 days. Except for small donation from a few places (around $700), I funded everything (funded the meetings, transportation, accommodatikns, food) from my own savings. I was thinking of giving the ministry a name, and possibly applying for 501.c.3 since I am not doing for profit, nor to receive, nor expect to receive payment. But I wasn’t sure that 501.c.3 is necessary. Do you have any advice on this? Thanks

Jack Wellman July 10, 2019 at 8:59 pm

Hello Della. It is not cheap to become incorporated, as an LLC, which is what they recommend. It does put your assets at risk if you go into the red, but you don’t really need a 501c3 because it has a lot of red tape with it. Here’s more on what is all involved (and it’s a lot!). Thank you for your question. Click here: https://www.501c3.org/what-is-a-501c3/

Terri Loewen August 23, 2019 at 9:54 pm

When Jesus was speaking of “the least of these…..”, he was referring to those inside the family of God, not those outside. That’s not to say that God doesn’t teach us to bless those outside of the Church, but please, use scripture accurately. Thanks

Jack Wellman August 24, 2019 at 10:16 am

If we are to pray for enemies and bless those that curse us (all outside the faith) then I stand by what it says…the least of these can be any as they may end up as our brothers and sisters, so if you only treat members of the church this way, and not the world, that’s hypocrisy. Jesus said they (all people) will know we are His disciples by our love (John 13:34-35), so if you treat outsiders less than loving and do unto the least of these, you are judging and showing partiality. That is sin. Please read this in context and not rip out of context to create a false pretext as you have done.

Paul September 11, 2019 at 5:54 pm

Hi Pastor, im 27 yrs old from philippines. and i feel the call of God to my life, and i have the opportunity to start a ministry because my auntie offered me her building to start there, i feel the compassion to the community i feel that community realy needs God. but my problem is the place im going to start is 2km away from my current church, How should i tell my pastor about that.

Jack Wellman September 11, 2019 at 6:01 pm

Hello Paul. Thank you for contacting us about this ministry you want to begin, but the distance 2Km is not a factor, or shouldn’t be to the pastor or the church. Why do you think he might not approve? It is not only up to him but the church in general. The old saying, “Bloom where you’re planted” is perfectly suited to your case, whether 2Km away or right next door to the church. Distance shouldn’t matter…it doesn’t matter to God. It is for Him anyway.

Kathy Domke October 29, 2019 at 6:20 pm

Hello I am thinking about starting a ministry ( a small one) to help those children who have been bullied in school. I want to incorporate it into my cleaning business I am trying to start. I want to let them know that God loves them and they are loved no matter what they look like or what the other kids say about them. Also to start a Bible study group in a corner of my business. How do I get started in this? Our logo is going to be : we clean your house and your soul..cleaning and ministry together!

Jack Wellman October 29, 2019 at 8:33 pm

Hello Kathy. I would talk to your school counselor or principle about this. Invite church members, neighbors, and friends to your Bible study group.

Martha April 15, 2020 at 6:31 am

Hi, thank you for this article. I am feeling more and more called to start a more formal ministry, but I have no idea where to begin. During this weird flu time (and due to my generally introverted nature, which Holy Spirit is working on!) I’m feeling like I would like to lead an online women’s study group. I have searched the web a bit, and think I need to start a 503 type foundation. Do you have any good resources about best ways to proceed? I am not yet ordained, and most articles I’ve found have been geared toward clergy. I don’t intend to start an actual church, but would be open to hosting small groups in my home or other spaces.

As for the gay man above, Jesus is pretty clear that sex is given us for procreation only. Sex used for ego power or bodily pleasure is a temptation from the Enemy.

William Poole October 14, 2020 at 3:15 am

Jesus never said that sex is given to us for procreation only. In fact no where in the scriptures does it say that. On the contrary, having sex for the pleasure of you and your spouse is encouraged, see 1 Corinthians 7:3
There is also some good stuff in Proverbs on this subject (and elsewhere). Your assertion is false and is a major “turn off” to potential future believers.

Theodore Gadoglo May 3, 2020 at 3:28 am

Thanks for sharing your experience with me.

Sharon May 5, 2020 at 11:08 am

Thank you for your article. It was very helpful. I am about to launch my Ministry of helps for women and men soon. I was enlightening to learn some things I had not considered. What I Love the most was simplicity. The work of the LORD is heavy but not necessarily hard. You just need GOD’s help and your desire and energy. GOD bless you and thank for encouraging and helping the Body of Christ. Remain bold and courageous for the glory of GOD.

Jack Wellman May 5, 2020 at 11:53 am

Hello Sharon. Thank you for such kind words. Such encouragement!!! May God bless you for that.

Juanita Azel May 24, 2020 at 5:02 pm

Praise the Lord!!!
Me and my husband both are passionated to serve God. In our prayer we offered ourselves to God.I hope we will bless through this.

Freda Ogbake November 6, 2020 at 12:01 pm

Hello pastor……..
I am from Nigeria. I have been pondering on something and I want an unbiased opinion. Is there anything wrong or is there a rule about preaching the truth as it is, because I don’t understand why most people tend to butter or sugar coat it. All you hear is how their lives have been better, sin free and smooth since they became born again. It’s like a magic wand that makes everything go away and suddenly everything becomes new. Nobody talks about the struggle and the pain and how darn hard it gets sometimes. I need to know because I would be going into full time ministry soon, I want to know if I have to keep up with the Joneses

Jack Wellman November 6, 2020 at 1:06 pm

Hello Freda. You are so right. It has gotten more difficult and harder the more we have began serving in prisons and nursing homes. With Covid it’s even harder. You are so right…Jesus said “hard is the way and narrow is the path that leads to eternal life” and more so for those who are sharing Christ in mission or a ministry. Prayers for you. I am glad you understand that all who live godly lives with suffer.

Barbara Ann Mack January 28, 2021 at 7:46 pm

Spoken Truth, dear brother Jack. People need to know the truth pertaining to Serving our Great and Holy God and His children throughout the world. Of course the road will get tough at times because we are fighting and going against that which satan, the devil wants to own. We are fighting for and helping the souls that our Holy God has called through His Ministers today.

Sharath October 7, 2021 at 1:49 pm

Praise the Lord God Jesus Christ
Pastor how can I start the ministry

Jack Wellman September 2, 2020 at 12:11 pm

Thank you for the encouragment Crystal.
