The Father's Field Ministries began nearly twenty years ago for building up the body of Christ here and around the world. We started from our home, at that time in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and eventually expanded around much of the globe. With the help of many other believers, the Lord has graciously sent us to encourage the members of His body through teaching and preaching God's Word, with special emphasis on our need for real revival. Real revival is necessary so that we can glorify God in the world as He intended; realize a harvest much greater than we have seen in the past; and prepare ourselves as His bride, while we also prepare for all that is coming upon the earth in our time.
The Father's Field Ministries teams have been honored to speak in many evangelical denominational and nondenominational churches of every kind, as well as in seminaries, conferences, and the like. We recognize God at work through many Christian divisions, but we believe and teach that for the most part the body of Christ is not allowing God to build us up by the Holy Spirit as He would. This should be obvious to anyone willing to honestly compare the church throughout most of the last nineteen centuries with what the Bible teaches and illustrates.
The foundation of Jesus Christ is laid throughout much of Christianity, but from there up we have in too many ways taken God's work into our own hands. God is at work, both with us and in us (in spite of us), but we need to cry out to God for a fresh realignment with Him. History reveals that, through the centuries following the promise of the Spirit at Pentecost, Christianity for the most part has developed into many forms, accompanied by many dogmas of religious men (some sincere, and some not) that have all too often grieved Him, keeping Him from building His Body into the mature image of Christ.
According to God's gift of grace in us, this ministry seeks to help all believers everywhere understand that God has appropriated a much higher way for us than most in our modern evangelical Christian culture realize; and He has certainly desired to move us beyond the limited spiritual understanding which birthed the Protestant Reformation, as needful as that was. We should learn and grow up into Christ, not based upon dogmas of intellectually religious men, but rather upon our spiritual endowment, united together in Biblical truth. Teaching through the Bible with the aid of the Holy Spirit is vitally important for our spiritual understanding and maturity, and it is how we discover God's highest way.
At this present time the Lord has us traveling and writing. In the coming months we hope to rebuild our website to help feed the larger body of Christ on the internet as we did for many years.
We have recently begun a Bible School in southern India, where Mark has worked with many village pastors. Please visit our website to learn more. Perhaps the Lord would have you be a part with us in bearing much fruit! shilohbibleschool.org
