Who we are
The Father's Field Ministries Family
Our Lord told His disciples that the world is His Heavenly Father's Field, out of which He will gain a great harvest of souls. The Bible goes on to say that some of every tribe and tongue will be a part of that great harvest, and that all His children should be eager to do their part in making it glorious. Ultimately, it's all up to Him, but He has invited all of us to be a part, and He has equipped us for use.
Mark and Debbie Case grew up down the street from each other - just normal folks from small town USA. They were born into the family of God at a young age, and some years later they knew the Lord purposed for them to share their lives together. Also, both Mark and Debbie sensed a special desire and call to serve the Lord in some capacity at some point. After twenty years of marriage and three children, they committed to God to set everything aside and follow wherever He would lead.
God led them to move to move to South America, and with nothing - no money, no foreign language skills, no knowledge of what to do, or of what may lie ahead. They literally started out with only $100! God began to show Himself strong in their behalf, and story after story can be told of His miracle-working hand, even to this very day, nearly 25 years later. Truly, the Lord honored their faith in a way that most only read about, not because they are "better" than anyone else, but because of their living faith to take Him at His Word, and follow His lead. God was, and continues to be ever-so faithful as they move step by step in His divine plan, sometimes stumbling, but by His grace, always continuing forward. Their story resembles much of the things we read in the book of Acts, and the half has not been told.
Other faith-filled believers joined the Case family with financial and prayer support, another essential piece in their journey's success. It has been, and continues to be a faith-family labor of love shared by many.
By God's grace, the Cases traversed four continents for almost a dozen years, working with local teams to bring indigenous pastors and their congregations together in cities everywhere - teaching and preaching solid Bible truths to many thousands of church leaders from churches of every kind. The Holy Spirit also opened the door to them for a few years, broadcasting His truths through television across the USA. Through those open doors, God has allowed them to reach countless more with His gospel of grace and truth in our own country - a country in desperate need of real revival.
Currently, the Cases reside in the USA, and oversee a mobile Bible school in South India they founded in 2016, born out of a visit there to teach many poor village pastors of the large Andhra Pradesh region. Many of those pastors are illiterate, but are being taught with care by The Father's Field Ministries team on the ground there. We are teaching those who will teach others also, just as Paul encouraged Timothy to do. There is much fruit to share with all those who have had a part! God is being glorified!
It is our desire to teach what the Bible says plainly, both here and abroad. And our great hope and confidence is that all who hear will be blessed to know Him more, even as we also, seek to know Him as He really is!
Building Up His Body
Sao Paulo, Brazil
"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery
of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but,
speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head - Christ - from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love." Ephesians 4:11-16
Jesus said, "...it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you..." "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come." John 16:7, 12-13 NKJV
Jesus said, "... for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." "... you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:5, 8 NKJV
When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filed the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."
Acts 2:1-4 NKJV
"For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God." Romans 8:13-14 NKJV
