Many pastors, churches, missionaries and Christian workers need real hands-on care. Often they feel isolated and alone with no ‘safe’ person to talk to. Pastors are leaving the ministry at an alarming rate. Often, great churches get stuck and need outside consultation to help them move forward. Eldership teams need teaching and coaching on critical leadership issues. Missionaries are crying out for on-site support, training and resourcing. Church affiliations and missions agencies are doing what they can, but much more help is needed for those on the front lines of Kingdom expansion! The early church commended Barnabas as ‘the son of encouragement’ – we need more of them today! Who will be a pastor to pastors? Who will be on a mission for missionaries? How will churches in need receive personalized and timely input?
We love the Lord Jesus, we love his people, we love local churches, and we love those who have given their lives to advance God’s Kingdom. God has called us to ‘Serve those who Serve, Minister to those who Minister and to Equip those who Equip.’ He has asked us to take what He has placed in our lives and leverage them to serve frontline leaders. In the Great Commission, Jesus told the disciples to go into the entire world and make disciples, baptize believers and teach them to obey His commands. God is calling us to be those who “GO” to the ends of the earth to teach and minister. The apostolic mandate He has given us is to “equip God’s people for works of service” (Ephesians 4) and to help them thrive on their spiritual journey!
God is faithfully raising up individuals who are led to partner with Journey Ministries in prayer and financial support. Your partnership will help bring vital teaching and ministry to those in need of personal ministry, input and strengthening. Most leaders in developing countries cannot afford to bring in trans-local ministries. Other churches can barely cover traveling costs for visiting ministers. Yet this is where Journey Ministries is needed most!
Would you prayerfully consider standing with Journey Ministries in prayer and financial partnership? Your involvement will allow us to be sent out to assist pastors, missionaries and church leaders around the globe.
Rev. Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse embraces a value he learned from his mentor and founder of World Vision, Bob Pierce. This value is called “God Room,” when you see a need that is bigger than you are humanly able to meet, but you accept the challenge anyway, trusting God to bring in the finances, materials, and resources to meet that need. God Room allows you to believe God for great things as you set out to do great things for Him.
Becky and I have joyfully been living the value of God Room for most of our ministry life, but our recent launch of Journey Ministries has required us to believe God in a new and fresh way in this area. Leaving the security of local church pastoring into trans-local apostolic ministry has been quite a faith step. God gave us the call, the strategy, and the faith to move forward, trusting Him with “God Room.” I want to tell you with utmost confidence: God will surely move into your “God Room” when you are walking out His call and mission!
What Leaders are Saying…
After hearing Sonny teach about life stages for the first time; I told him he MUST turn this into a book because the Body of Christ could greatly benefit from these truths. And now he’s done it! Buy the copy you hold in your hand, grab a pen, find a comfortable chair, and prepare to learn volumes about yourself!
—Michael Fletcher, Sr. Pastor, Manna Church, Fayetteville, North Carolina
“Pastor Sonny’s visit did not disappoint”
Having known Pastor Sonny and his family personally, I was excited to welcome him to come speak at our church. He did a great job clearly and visually presenting us with the practical road map found in his book, Journey to Authenticity. He made it easy for each and every church member to understand the inevitable cycles of our spiritual lives that we find ourselves in. Many people in our congregation were eager to buy his book and learn more.
As a Pastor, I want each of the 52 Sundays I get a year to be challenging and meaningful to those who attend our church. And Sonny’s visit did not disappoint.
I would highly recommend Sonny Misar to other Pastors. His heart and his ministry are greatly appreciated and we would gladly have him back.
—Pastor Rich Weller, Sr. Pastor of Northwest Assembly of God, Mount Prospect, Illinois
“rich with wisdom, yet practical enough for the new believer”
I met Sonny Misar a few years ago when he was in the process of writing the book Journey to Authenticity. Before I ever heard his “message” I became deeply impressed with the man. I had only known him for a few weeks but asked him to
teach the leaders of my church. Sometime later when his book was available I asked him to come and share the message with our church. We sold out of books that morning and we had to order more! We had him back to teach this invaluable insight at our last conference for ministers. It was an equal success there. Now, Sonny is developing this message into a course so that he can teach it in our Bible College.
The Journey to Authenticity Seminar teaches us the process God uses to grow us into to mature followers of Christ. These insights help to remove the disappointment of past seasons and provide encouragement for the next. The Journey to Authenticity Seminar allows us to see and understand what God is doing in each season of our lives. It is rich with wisdom, yet practical enough for the new believer. This information is a must for those who have dedicated their life to follow Jesus!
—Pastor Nick Honerkamp, New Covenant Church, Clyde, North Carolina
When Sonny Misar came to minister to us, we didn’t exactly know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised and profoundly impacted at the insights revealed. Most of us want to be able to better understand our journey, and sometimes we need help making sense of some of the things we feel but don’t understand. Sonny’s teaching goes a long way in filling in many of those gaps. I would highly recommend that all pastors give their congregation and themselves a “gift” in bringing in Sonny and this teaching—you will not be disappointed!
—Pastor Doug Fulford, Senior Pastor, New Testament Fellowship, Pensacola, Florida
“reduced the amount of time that my leaders and I would have potentially spent in counseling”
As a pastor, it can be difficult to explain to individuals why they are going through what they’re going through if we don’t know where they are on their own spiritual journey. The Journey to Authenticity Seminar brought these answers and more to our church. It not only benefited every attendee with personal insight about their own walk, but has also reduced the amount of time that my leaders and I would have potentially spent in counseling. When people discover their seasons of life: where they’ve been, where they’re at and what they can expect, it brings great comfort and stability and many of the “why God” questions simply get resolved. In our seminar, people who had struggled with understanding their spiritual growth received fresh revelation. Others were re-inspired with purpose having discovered God’s orchestrations of their lives.
Sonny Misar does an excellent job of shaping this complex idea into an effective and easy to understand teaching. His passion and sense of humor make the seminar an event to look forward to. I highly recommend the JTA seminar for any church seeking to take the next step towards Christ-likeness!
—Pastor David Comer, Christian Life Fellowship, Cape Coral, Florida
“I’m really picky when it comes to who speaks in our church”
We were able to book Sonny to be our Men’s Retreat speaker and to share at our Sunday morning service last year to teach from his book Journey to Authenticity. To be honest with you, I’m really picky when it comes who speaks in our church & what books I recommend. Sonny did a fantastic job & I will have him in again.
At the retreat, he did a great job as a humble but effective teacher & friend. He encouraged all of us in our journey to become who Jesus has created us to be. Our guys walked away challenged & encouraged. On Sunday morning, he shared a masterful summary of his book that was helpful, relatable & inspiring. Personally, I’ve been blessed not only by Sonny’s investment in our church but his investment in my life.
—Jim Erickson, Senior Pastor, City Hill Church, Eden Prairie, Minnesota
“It is like watching a playback of your life with a running commentary!”
Journey to Authenticity is a modern day Pilgrim’s Progress. It brings a clear understanding of the mountain and valley experiences of the Christian. I believe that this book is an essential tool that will bless the ministry of every Christian Leader. During his seminar, Apostle Sonny Misar illuminates and simplifies the path of Christian spiritual formation. It is like watching a playback of your life with a running commentary! It gives you an understanding of your past and confidence for your future.
—Dr. Aaron Nartey Ami-Narh, MD, Sr. Pastor, District Five Apostolic Church, Ghana, Africa
