One of the ways we believe we can be a part of God’s global mission of reaching the world with the gospel is through missionary support. At the present time, King of Glory actively supports the ministries of two individuals.
Deaconess Lori Wilbert
For more than 25 years, the Lord has called deaconess Lori Wilbert to serve the men of Stateville Correctional Facility in Joliet, IL. Her ministry known as Voice of Hope Behind the Wall seeks to bring the hope of Christ to a place where often forgiveness and redemption are hard to come by. Through teaching and education Lori works with qualified candidates to make real life change. In light of the redeeming power of the gospel Lori works with these men to deal with the realities of past choices, relationships that have been damaged, anger issues and the forgiveness God offers to all people through Christ. Her ministry is a true testament to the far reaching power of God’s love, that no one is beyond his reach. King of Glory has been blessed to support her ministry with both our prayers and financial giving for the past 10 years.
Kristin Rooney, Missionary to France
Two years ago, following her graduation from college, Kristin Rooney felt lead by God to put her French speaking abilities to work as a missionary to France. She accepted an internship with the organization Cru and prepared to reach out to students with the gospel in the south of France.
Over the years, a spiritual void has taken over in much of Europe. The magnificent cathedrals which stands as evidence of the early days of the Christian church have become largely tourist attractions rather than inspiring houses of worship. What is needed is a revival among a new generation of people.
Kristin’s ministry has been to reach out and build relationships through campus ministries. Connecting with students, asking about what they believe and why they believe it, and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide their conversations towards the truth of Christ. Over the past two years she has had a front row seat to Go working in the lives of people to turn their hearts towards the Lord and enter into a new relationship with Christ as their Lord and Savior. At present, Kristin is preparing to take the next step of commitment by assuming a staff position with Cru for the next 3 to 5 years.
