Press On! Ministries has grown out of our experience in church planting. In 1974, we planted Falls Baptist Church in Menomonee Falls, WI. God built a church, school, radio broadcast, and missionary outreach. After 12 years there, we entered itinerant evangelism and had a fruitful family ministry for 9 years conducting revival meetings in the USA and on mission fields. In 1995, we left our traveling ministry to plant a second church, Trinity Baptist Church of Franklin, TN (Nashville suburb).

We used a church planting method called The Phone's for You to plant the church in Franklin. After 23,000 personal phone calls and weekly mail invitations, 120 folks attended the first service of the new Trinity Baptist Church. The Lord grew the church as we pastored it the next 6 years. By 2001, we had built a building and called a new pastor. In 2001, we started Press On! Ministries to help with all stages of church planting and growth.

Claudia and I live on the road full-time in a 5th-wheel trailer. We usually spend 6 months assisting each church planter, using  The Phone's for You  as a tool to find prospects. After the first service, we help with follow-up visitation, music, children's ministry, personal soul-winning and discipleship, land search, etc.

When our schedule allows, we also assist established churches that are stalled in growth and outreach ministry. We use a modified phone program to help them find new prospects and re-establish their presence in their growing or changing community.

Our home church/mission board is Burge Terrace Baptist in Indianapolis, Pastor Todd Curtis. We have three children and five grandchildren.

Thanks for praying for us!
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5

I was 9 years old when I discovered my Dad's Kodak Duex camera in his bedroom closet. Capable of taking 16 pictures on size 620 film, it was a "miniature camera that makes album-size pictures." I shot a roll of film and had it developed at the corner drugstore. I was hooked. Though I enrolled in college to become a cinematographer, God changed my direction (and my heart). God's goodness has allowed me to remain a camera bug during all my years of ministry . . . so I will occasionally post a photo or two here for your perusal. Enjoy . . . and reflect on the Maker of all things.
