Some Thoughts on Our Anniversary

My Dear Friends,

Forty years ago this month (March), Gospel Truth Ministries was incorporated as a non-profit, evangelistic association with the United States Government. At that time, I had already been ministering for six years as a Bible teacher and evangelist. In 1987, our ministry status was changed to “church.” From a very inauspicious beginning of Bible teaching in home prayer meetings and evangelizing in local churches in the Pittsburgh area, we are today ministering to all fifty states in the Union and nearly 180 nations worldwide from White Oak Chapel, our base of operations in “the Queen City,” Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Only the goodness and grace of God could have accomplished so much from so little!

As I look back, I am extremely humbled to report the goodness of God in allowing me to:

Serve six congregations as pastor, spend nearly four years evangelizing in various churches in the tristate area, minister for four years as the program director of a Christian radio station, complete nearly 50 short-term mission trips to nations overseas, and serve as a full-time missionary to Australia for 18 months.

In addition, our Lord guided and sustained outreaches on AM, FM and short-wave radio for a number of years, allowed my wife and me to regularly host a local Christian television program for fifteen years, serve as an adjunct professor for International Seminary for fifteen years (authoring a number of lessons in their course curriculum) and also complete the writing, publishing and distribution of over 100,000 copies of nearly thirty original books and three ministry training courses.

God also graciously guided us to “focus on the internet” at the turn of the century. This emphasis opened the door to the GTM Radio Network which aired online for nearly ten years with listeners in 122 nations. In addition, the internet ministry also expanded our outreach to the world via multiple thousands of downloads of messages, publications and ministry training courses (with over 20,000 course registrations in 168 nations at the time of this writing). To the glory of God, our local fellowship will celebrate its 33rd anniversary as a local, full gospel congregation serving the tristate area on Sunday, December 6th of this year.

As part of our celebration, I have revised, expanded and updated two of our titles: The Lord's Supper: the Mystery, Miracle and Majesty of Sacramental Union and Ready for the Rapture: Secrets of the Second Coming. These enlightening, informative and edifying publications are available as free downloads from our website, and also in Kindle and paperback editions through Amazon.com (click titles for more info).

I would like to invite you to participate with us in the celebration by doing us a small favor.

If this ministry has benefited you in any way over the last forty years, would you consider sending along a testimony to us through letter, email or other means of communication? It would be a great encouragement to us at this time and we would appreciate it more than words can say.

Thanks for being part of our GTM family and may God bless you and yours with His best, now and always!

Brother Joe
