We, Jeff and Loralyn are lifelong seekers of God’s Love and Wisdom. We came to a saving knowledge of Jesus on Easter Sunday 1981. As a young married couple, we were prayed into a full gospel church and found that we were sinners and accepted Jesus free gift of salvation together, baptized in Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, and we were baptized in water that catapulted us into our new life that glorious day! Since then, we have been on a lifelong journey uncovering treasures in His Word that we can apply to our lives to give us victory in all areas, and to spread that victory to others. We have operated in all aspects of ministry in various churches for over 30 years, except the office of senior pastor. We finally answered the call and become licensed ministers, and you guessed it we did it….together! Then, we founded Speak Life Ministries to seal it. Speak Life Ministries was founded in May 2015 but was formed in our hearts many years before. It is founded on Isaiah 61:1
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord Is Upon Me for the Lord Has Anointed Me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners be freed." We love people and want to see you set free with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ by ministering to body, soul, spirit and mind. Jesus says ‘Come, come as you are.’ You don’t have to measure up to any man made standards, just come and He will minister to you right where you are. If there are 10,000 steps between Jesus and you, take that first step and Jesus will take the remaining 9,999 steps to meet you.
We have been called to be Jesus' hands, feet and heart and you may be desperate to experience Him. You are in the right place. There are so many stresses in life such relationships, work and finances that can bring on depression, anxiety, confusion and a variety of issues that can cause us to lose sight of the prize of Jesus. Speak Life Ministries is a ministry birthed by the needs of the discarded, lost, broken, hungry, thirsty, and hurting people that need to be encouraged. When you are at your rock bottom, Jesus is the rock at the bottom!
We have completed our Food Outreach Program locally and have fed many families physically and spiritually with near future plans to open an after school care program with computer software program instruction; money management, including how to handle and balance a checking account; and cooking basics, to name a few.
