From the early beginnings in 1996, the team at One Way Ministries has walked alongside pastors and marketplace leaders, talking together, and listening carefully to what they had to say. Those initial discussions led to the development of a unique full-time ministry that seeks to advance the gospel by investing in the lives of Kingdom leaders.
Whether in full-time ministry, a leader in the business, administrative world, or married to a leader, the pressures of daily life are enormous. Although initially One Way Ministries was established as a funding organization, we soon discovered that the real needs in leader’s lives were often not financial in nature. Through deepening relationships, One Way Ministries began to bring other resources to leaders with a heart to serve, to encourage and to equip them.
Over the years of walking together with leaders, the focus of the ministry became more and more refined. As students of Biblical leadership, its joys as well as its stresses and strains, we realized that we can make a distinct contribution in the lives of the people God has called into leadership.
We believe that by creating opportunities where deep investments can be made in the lives of Kingdom leaders, we will see Kingdom companies, Kingdom Ministries and Kingdom churches advancing the gospel in every city where we work. We care not only for leaders, but also for their spouses and families. We especially want to see women who are married to pastors empowered and enriched because of their role.
Although we focus on helping start-up Kingdom businesses and ministries, we also recruit and facilitate different teams to advise in a variety of areas, and to minister deeply into the lives and organizations of Kingdom leaders. It is also our goal to foster unity and community across the broad leadership spectrum in the cities where we are engaged.
We care passionately about the health of God’s Kingdom leaders. We know by investing in their lives, God’s Kingdom will be increased.
