Dear friends and family of Jacob Berry Ministries:

You are holding what may be the most important letter our ministry has ever sent out. We have some very exciting things to share about the vision and future of our ministry.

First of all we want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported this ministry since we began nearly 13 years ago. There is no possible way that we could have accomplished the work that we have been able to do without the help of our faithful supporters. Never in our wildest imaginations would we have dreamed that God would open the doors to reach this world for Christ in the capacity that He has enabled us to do thus far.

Last year, as many of you know, I faced an illness that I continue to deal with on a daily basis that threatened to take my life. Our ministry team discussed at length the future of our ministry and how we can accomplish as much as possible for the cause of Christ without jeopardizing my overall health. It is only by the grace of God that I am still here; and I am convinced it is because God is not finished with me yet.

After much Godly advice, I have come to understand that I have to use Godly wisdom in allowing time for my muscular dystrophy body to recuperate so that each time that I do preach, I am physically, mentally and spiritually ready to effectively preach the gospel under God’s anointing. Although my health may have waned, my desire to see souls saved before it is eternally too late has not diminished. I have full intentions of taking the gospel to this lost and dying world until my last dying breath. I am as excited and focused about the work of God as I have ever been in my entire life! I just have to be wise about how I accomplish it, and I will need your help to get it done. Before sharing with you how you can help, I first want to share with you the vision of our ministry for the next five years and exactly what it is that you will be helping us to do.

  • 1. First and foremost: Continue reaching this lost and dying world with the message of the Cross.
    • We will continue to preach the gospel in as many places as I am physically able to do.
    • We will work to take our ministry, as God leads, into new venues to impact people who have not yet been reached by the ministry of Jacob Berry Ministries.
    • We will utilize several methods to get the message of the cross out to this world; such as: increasing our social media output, more YouTube clips, maintaining website, etc.
  • Write and Publish the books God has placed in my heart to write.
  • Establish The Andrew Project.
    • The Andrew Project has been on my heart and mind for many years. Our desire is to become fully funded by our regular monthly supporters so that we can be positioned to give the offerings we receive on the road to the establishment of The Andrew Project.
    • Our desire is to become fully funded by our regular monthly supporters so that we can be positioned to give the offerings we receive on the road to the establishment of The Andrew Project.
    • Be looking for more information on The Andrew Project (an outreach providing tangible evidence of God’s amazing love) in the near future.
  • “New to Us” RV.
    • To remain functional, our current RV was requiring repairs costing more than the value of its current worth.
    • Our ministry board took a step of faith and voted to purchase a newer used RV for travel.

We need you to partner with us in the ministry that God has called us to. We believe with your help, and God’s guidance, we will have the most fruitful season ahead of us that Jacob Berry Ministries has ever seen. First, we need your prayers. Second, we need your support. We are asking for churches and individuals to support Jacob Berry Ministries on a regular monthly basis. We are asking for your help to stand with us financially to ensure that this ministry goes on. One time gifts are always appreciated, but it is not possible to make long term plans without regular monthly partners. Would you please, prayerfully, consider partnering with us on a monthly basis? There is no amount too small. If you are a church, would you consider making us one of your missions to support? If you are an individual, would you consider partnering with us? The need is real. The need is urgent. You have our promise that we are committed to being as frugal as possible in all of our dealings. You have our promise that we will continue to function with the exact same financial integrity that our ministry has worked with for the last 13 years. For those who faithfully support this ministry – THANK YOU!

That is the heart of this letter – sharing my heart with you, asking you to join us. Your prayerful consideration to join our ministry is appreciated more than we know how to say.

Humbly “Living the Gift”,

Jacob Berry Ministries - Signature
