ARCHEGOS MISSION STATEMENT
Archegos Ministries, Inc. is an inter-denominational, non-profit organization whose ministerial vision is to extend the kingdom of God into all sectors of society through prayer, the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the presentation of His infallible word, the Bible. It is our endeavor to achieve this end through diverse means of communication, in humble submission and dependence on the Holy Spirit, in partnership with the body of Christ, and motivated for the glory of God.
In my approximately thirteen years as a missionary in Peru, I have been engaged in a variety of activities as pastor and professor. I have preached and teached in churches, homes, retreats, camps, and in many rugged, isolated areas throughout the jungle, highland and coastal regions. This has been accomplished through team-oriented, servant leadership in partnership with local churches; combining gifts with integrity, vision and creativity for the glory of God.
Presently, I am living in Trujillo, Peru as part of a pastoral team that ministers to approximately 1000 people at a Christian Missionary Alliance congregation. Apart from pastoring the young professionals, I am also a professor in their seminary for the north of the country (Seban). My wife Melissa is Peruvian and a student of painting at the National School of Fine Arts; we also have a son named after his father, and a daughter named Ana Victoria.
As I press forward in the good fight for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I believe in the ethos of grace, meaning that God´s grace operates uniquely in the lives of all believers, enhancing our personal and cultural diversity. In all my relationships, I try to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual acceptance and respect, which encourages each member to attain their full potential in Jesus Christ. I affirm all essential evangelical doctrines while leaving secondary, less consequential issues as matters of sincere, loving debate and personal position. As a result, I have a broad based partnership within the body of Christ, which accurately reflects the heart of the Gospel and the mind of God.
“…to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, in order that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.”
~Acts 26:18 (NASB)
