It is our goal to pursue the vision of Making the Gospel Known and of equipping families and churches to do the same. The harvest truly is plentiful and the laborers are few. A.W. Tozer appropriately said, “In the times of extraordinary crisis ordinary measures will not suffice. The world lives in such a time of crisis. Christians alone are in a position to rescue the perishing. We dare not settle down to try to live as if things were normal…” Therefore, we will give ourselves to go and reach the perishing.
Dennis Rainey, founder of Family Life Today, says, “The family is the training center for the Great Commission.” We heartily agree. Therefore, we will make ourselves available to families to encourage them in their role of fulfilling the Great Commission.
We realize it is the desire of pastors and churches to be proactive in their faith by reaching others with the gospel. Therefore, we will serve churches in both strengthening families and in equipping the saints for evangelism.
Chris Peeler served as pastor of New Covenant Church in Arnold, MD, for 25 years. His ongoing passion to reach the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ continues to be the focus of his life’s work. This deep conviction, a growing sense of God’s call, and the confirmation of church leaders led to the founding of Making the Gospel Known. In October, 2008, church elders commissioned Chris into a ministry of missions, evangelism, and teaching. Chris regularly leads evangelism teams into the streets, conducts evangelistic Bible studies, and presents parenting and marriage seminars. In addition, he does evangelism training and seminars in churches and in small groups, and he preaches in the pulpits of churches of varying denominations.
In February, 2009, God amazingly allowed Chris to meet Linda Wold. Both Chris and Linda had been faithfully married (Chris to Deb for 29 years, and Linda to Joel for 20 years), and widowed, prior to their meeting.
On August 29 of the same year, God joined them together in marriage. Together, they rejoice in God’s goodness to give them a unified vision for ministry, a love for God’s word and the gospel, and a shared passion to see the nations be glad in Jesus Christ. They especially rejoice together in their combined 15 children and growing number of grandchildren!
Before preaching at Loch Raven on Sunday, October 7th, Pastor Chris Peeler and his wife Linda introduced themselves and their ministry in anticipation for the Evangelism Training the next 2 Saturdays, October 11th & 18th.
