In 1995 the Lord called Bill to begin to go into the highways and hedges to preach the Word and in 2000 Bill became a full-time evangelist.
In the early years Bill preached at seemingly every concert, sporting event, parade and festival in Atlanta and simultaneously the Lord led him to travel to major sporting events like the Super Bowl, Final Four and Olympics to preach.
Over the years millions of souls throughout the Western World have heard the Word through Bill’s preaching and the great delight of his life is knowing and preaching Jesus Christ crucified.
Adam Cutshaw – Manchester, TN
Adam Cutshaw is an unworthy slave of Christ and knows obedience to God’s commands is merely doing what an unworthy slave should do (Luke 17:10). Adam was raised in a Christian fundamentalist home and made multiple false professions of faith throughout his life. For several years during and after college God brought much sadness, despair and a sense of guilt that continued to cause conviction of sins and a reality of being lost. After several years of searching, God graciously revealed to Adam the truths and realities found in the Doctrines of Grace. Adam began to understand even the faith to believe in Jesus for salvation was a gift of God (Eph. 2:8). One morning while alone and under the moving of the Holy Spirit, Adam cried out to God for salvation and God graciously saved a self-righteous, unworthy sinner. Adam is married to his wife of 11 years, Whitney and has a daughter Karaline (6) and a son Kalel (4) He has been a city police officer, a semi-professional football player, a body guard and diamond transporter, a federal government security contractor and is currently a Master Barber and preaching elder of Encounter Life Church. Adam is enrolled in Ekklesia Theological Seminary, and can be found preaching in both open air and behind the pulpit of the local church. Adam is also involved in weekly Bible study at the local county jail. Adam and his family live in southern middle Tennessee on the banks of the Duck River. Adam desires to be used by God however God directs.
Dan Davis – Seymour, WI
Saved by the hand of God shortly after my wife was saved some 21 yrs ago now. We have been married for 24 years and have had one daughter who’s recently married to a godly young man. I’ve worked for Wisconsin in the highway department for about 20 years and now serve in the area of roadway maintenance. I currently serve in our new local home fellowship “Word from the Barn” as the Life Events Deacon for the last 3yrs. I’ve been sharing my faith through testimony and tracts for about 20 years but only 3 years of experience in open air preaching. I’m looking forward to laboring alongside my fellow brothers and sisters in the faith in a much larger venue SBO 16 and declaring the Glorious Gospel of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Peter Doherty – St. Paul, MN
My name is Peter and I live in St. Paul, MN with my three sons. I’m pursuing a Master of Arts Degree in Religion at Liberty University with an emphasis in evangelism and church planting. I enjoy swimming, cycling and running and compete as an age group triathlete during the summer months. I plan to go into full time ministry after graduation in 2020 focusing on evangelism and church planting here in the US and abroad.
I have not always faithfully obeyed and followed our Lord Jesus Christ. Like many who confess they are Christians, I did not fully understand the pathway to salvation and abandoned God in pursuit of the passions and desires of my flesh. It was when I was brought to my knees after 35 years of sinful and disobedient behavior I realized I needed to completely surrender my life to following Jesus.
Since that day in July of 2009, my life has been radically changed and is a constant journey of transformation. My transformation is not of my own will but accomplished only through repentance and the power of the Holy Spirit. Paul states; “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here” (2 Cor 5:17). Because of all Christ has done for me, I’ve committed the rest of my life to serving our Lord Jesus Christ and sharing the gospel with the lost every chance I get.
My friend Keith and I began open air preaching and witnessing to the lost in the summer of 2017 after attending Ray Comforts Living Waters Ambassadors Academy. We regularly “go” and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ at major sporting events, University of MN campus, streets of downtown Minneapolis and other venues and places that attract large crowds of the unchurched and false converts.
As evangelists we must preach the entire truth of the gospel and not just the peace, love and joy that is a byproduct of our faith. Many churches today are filled with false converts because they fail to preach about God’s judgement and wrath that lies ahead for those who do not repent of their sins and seek transformation through the power of the Holy Spirit. We must encourage the sinner to hit their knees in repentance if they are going to be saved when the day of judgement is upon them. In the words of Charles Spurgeon; “If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled, in the teeth or our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.” May the power and strength of the Lord be in our presence always as we go out into a broken and sinful world and participate in God’s redemptive plan to rescue His children through their complete surrender to our Lord Jesus Christ!
John Fedock – Austin, TX
I’ve been a Christian since September 2010. (For the sake of space, a longer version of my Christian testimony can be found on my blog at http://www.uncompromisinggospel.com/testimony.html.) Almost from the outset of my Christian walk, it became apparent to me that much (if not most) of the professing “church” in America was not living like the Christians I saw in the Bible – men and women who were wholly committed to Christ and furthering the good news of the Gospel, and of advancing His church, no matter the cost. But still, at first, I allowed myself to think that all of my friends who merely paid lip service to being a “Christian” were, in fact, right with God.
That all changed in the Spring of 2013, or about 2.5 years into my walk. It was in the days leading up to oral arguments before The Supreme Court of the United States on one of the “same sex benefits” cases. Despite most of my friends at that time being people I assumed were “Christians,” there was an overwhelming flood of those red equal signs (for quote-unquote “equality”) in my news feed that day. My friends were, by and large, supporting homosexuality and were making a push for what was evident even then would ultimately become the acceptance and even celebration of homosexual “marriage.”
That day changed everything. The blinders were off, and I began to see the world for what it truly was. Lost, depraved, and completely adversarial to God in all things (or at least in all things that did not happen to coincide with what the culture surrounding them already wanted to believe). That began years’ worth of Facebook conversations and debates, and finally just boldly proclaiming the truth instead of trying to debate back and forth – the latter being the manner which I eventually realized was the more accurate command of Scripture, at least with respect to those who have hard hearts and aren’t genuinely seeking the truth, that being the manner of heralding the Truth of God, rather than “debating it.”
This process continued on for years, and in fact still continues to this day. For much of this time, I felt increasingly like I was “the only one” taking their faith so seriously, “the only one” who really truly cared. I often wondered where the Ravenhill’s and Whitefield’s and Wesley’s and John Knox’s of our day were, and even prayed for God to raise up such people, and hoping and praying that perhaps one day I could be one of them.
And then I met them! They were already out there, doing this very thing! In the summer of 2016, the Lord led me to attending what I called at the time “preaching camp,” also known as the George Whitefield Training Program put on by Sports Fan Outreach. It was there that I met many incredible Saints and wonderful Brothers who were doing that very thing! At the time, I was in seminary, so I couldn’t join them right away out in the streets due to my other commitments before the Lord. And to be honest, even after meeting them, it took some time for my heart to warm up (or perhaps more accurately, to be warmed up by the Lord) to join them. But slowly but surely, those opportunities arose. First, at the 2018 Final Four in San Antonio, just a fairly short Texas drive from where I live. Then in Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600, and eventually on my first trip ever to the “Other Side of the Pond” for the London trip this past October that was centered around the NFL London games. This year, God has allowed me to preach at the Super Bowl Outreach in Atlanta, and I’m looking forward to preaching in Mardi Gras with some Brothers that I met through SFOI. And of course, I look forward to heralding the Gospel at the 2019 Kentucky Derby alongside many fellow Christian Brethren – you know, the genuinely committed kind that are all too lacking in the American “church” – some of whom I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting, and many others who I suspect I’ll be meeting for the first time. And all of it for the Gospel of our Lord, King, and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Greg Fischer – Denmark, WI
I am Greg Fischer. I was brought up in Roman Catholicism, but left the church when I left home, age 20. For about the next 10 years I attended only on holidays. My belief system was only to serve my own interests and pleasures. Then around age 30 I began to search a little more for the meaning of life, as well as some direction spiritually. At the urging of a fellow employee, I attended a charismatic church and became a member for the next 3 years. As it turned out, I was a false convert in a church that preached a false gospel, the “gospel” of prosperity. After leaving this church I began to settle into mostly Baptist churches, which, for the most part, preached solid, reformed theology. At age 36 I was finally truly saved. It has been a steady process of sanctification. Being solidly grounded in one church for 20 years, that does not compromise on the truth, has certainly helped to prepare me for street ministry. For the last 11 years I have been involved in street corner ministry, as well as outreaches at parades, state fairs, and nighttime street ministry. One of the greatest joys has been to get to know the brothers and sisters through SFOI, and serve the Lord with them.
Ricky Gantz – Elyria, OH
If I was to start from the beginning I would probably need more than one page. I grew up in Church from a very young age and continued to attend until I was in my last few years of high school and my family pretty much stopped attending. In my life there was never a true change, no transformation, I had no salvation whatsoever. I was trusting in the sinner’s prayer I said a few times in youth ministries and a Christian camp, not trusting in Christ! I spent nine years in the Army living just like the rest of the world but all the while believing myself to be a Christian, even had it on my dog tags. Once I came home from the Army I tried to attend Church every so often but mostly because my daughter was playing basketball in a league the Church sponsored. Plus I was playing basketball with the men from that same Church which also was a reason I would attend but not because I was born again, rather for the activity of playing basketball. It wasn’t until I was 32 years old at three o’clock in the morning when the Lord brought me to my knees, broken over my sins against a holy and just God. The Lord brought me to repentance and faith in His Son Jesus Christ and from that day my desires changed. I was and am a new creation, the old has passed away all things become new.
My desires changed and I wanted to know more and more about Jesus Christ, so I listened to so many sermons to hear God’s Word preached, also listening to Christian audio books, lectures and the Audio Bible. Just wanted and desiring to know more and more about the things of the Lord. Also from the very beginning of my conversion, I was sharing the Gospel with everyone in my family and friends. I didn’t know much in the beginning but what I did know I shared it with others and as I began to learn more from the reading and preaching of God’s Word that to I would share with my family. Facebook had been around for sometime and I refused to get one but when my brother was going back to Iraq for his second time I created a Facebook account to stay in contact while he was away. Once I was on Facebook and reconnecting with people I went to highschool with as well as Army buddies, and many other people I really don’t know so well but have connected with. So I began to use Facebook as a place to also do ministry. Sharing verses, sermons and biblical messages on my page. Even getting into many “online debates” over the evidence of God being true or is scripture reliable, also calling out false teachers. Which eventually I was booted from Facebook. They allowed me to get my page back but then again I was blocked, reported for hate speech because of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And so that became the beginning of what is now called G220 Ministries. Initially I was just starting a Facebook page to promote and share the Gospel under the name of Disciple-Making Ministries, the more I began to be out witnessing and through the internet, I was able to meet many other brothers and sisters who were also compassionate about sharing the Gospel and as things started to go the ministry began doing more.
At the beginning of 2014 my friend Chris and I began a Christian internet radio show called Berean Boys Radio, which lasted for two months. We had to break away from the show due to my friend having many other ministry obligations to handle. So that became the beginning of G220 Radio. A Christian internet radio show that deals with a wide range of topics from a Christian worldview. It has been a blessing to be able to run G220 Radio and all the wonderful guests that have been on to share their wisdom and knowledge from the Word of God on different issues. Also during this time of running G220 there have been opportunities to attend conferences and meet many more good brothers and sisters in Christ. Also during this time I wanted to condense the things I was doing ministry wise into one single ministry. And that is when I changed the name of Disciple-Making Ministries to G220 Ministries.
My prayer and hope in all of this is that The LORD BE GLORIFIED through the ministry and radio show. I would never claim to be an expert or assume I have everything all figured out. The Christian life is a process of continued growth, being conformed more and more to the image of Christ Jesus, as we await the Glorious return of our KING of kings and LORD of lords.
G220 Ministries is here to, by God’s sovereign grace see those who are lost come to faith in Jesus Christ, and to help and assist believers in their walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace and Peace
SOLI DEO GLORIA
Clay Hall – Grand Rivers, KY
Growing up in a Baptist church as the son of a vocational minister, and the grandson of a bi-vocational pastor, his experience with the things of the Lord was one of familiarity. He did not appreciate the Christian upbringing the Lord blessed him with. Sadly, like diamond-cutters handling precious jewels all day, he took the Gospel for granted and did not treasure Christ. Thankfully, at the age of 18, the Lord irresistibly drew Clay to Himself and saved him out of his hypocrisy, making him a new creation in Christ.
Desiring to draw closer to the Lord, Clay enrolled in Bible College where the Lord made it plain that He had a calling on his life to preach and teach God’s Word. By His grace, Clay has had the joy of laboring in this capacity in His harvest field since 2000. He graduated from Boyce Bible College in 2003 and he was ordained and licensed into the Gospel ministry that same year. Clay praises God for the opportunities He has given such an unworthy servant to serve Him.
The Lord’s single greatest tool to make Clay more like Jesus has been his family. The Lord allowed him to marry Monica, his high school sweetheart in 2000. She is his best earthly friend, his strongest supporter, and his closest accountability partner. Clay married a mile above his head in personality, intellect and looks! Monica is truly a gift from God. Follow her blog at monicanicolehall.wordpress.com
Clay also praises God for his six children who always expect him to live what he preaches. He couldn’t ask for a more loving group of kids to shepherd into adulthood. If the Lord tarries, Clay’s prayer is that they each live for God’s glory in spite of their earthly father’s many shortcomings and failures.
Clay also praises God for his church family that he has pastored since 2014. Lake City Baptist is smaller than many churches, but Clay puts their capacity to love up against any mega-church. It was this characteristic that the Lord used to first draw him to Lake City Baptist in Grand Rivers, KY. If you’ve never experienced the love of Christ through His people, do yourself a favor and join a loving, Bible-believing church!
Jamie Hall – Myrtle Beach, SC
My name is James Hall. I’m from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I am single, never married. I am 43 years of age. I have been street evangelizing for 5 years. I currently evangelize on the street around my area as well as neighboring states, Superbowls and the Kentucky Derby.
At 16 years old I surrendered to the Lord’s will on my heart. After many months of suppressing the truth. Listening to the Pastor preach on Hell. I sat on the back row of a Southern Baptist Church and became aware that day that Hell was very real to me. I had no idea when I was gonna die, or had any control over my life.
Being brought up in a church that had man- centered beliefs, such as decisionism, works, and tradition. I was unaware and had no discernment at the time.
Through studying of the Holy Scriptures for myself and relying on the Holy Spirit for discernment. Christ continually revealed the truth to me, and continues too, even to this day. About 10 years ago I heard a sermon that completely changed my life, called “Hell’s best kept Secret” – by Ray Comfort. The one sermon sparked the fuel for the fire in my desire and the love I had for Christ to share the Gospel.
Several years after being called to assistant teaching at the church I was from. I joined an evangelist group called The 5 Solas Outreach Ministry. After learning quite a bit of reform theology I was quickly brought to my knees again in repentance to the Lord. There I truly learned how to share my faith openly, Preaching through Open-Air, and one on one evangelism. We taught each other and Truly equipped ourselves for the work of the Lord.
Four years ago I defended my faith and view of the scriptures to my local church. After the confrontation I left my first church for Christ, my first love. I have attended two reformed churches since. The second Reformed Baptist church is my current church I attending now. Continuing to be edified by my Lord Jesus Christ till the day he calls me home. Soli Deo Gloria

Eric Madia – Salem, WV
Eric is the assistant pastor at Life Builders Fellowship in Bridgeport WV. He was raised as an unbeliever (he went to the Roman Catholic Church with his grandma sometimes) until he was 10 years old when his parents were gloriously saved. He was active in church but never really knew Christ until his early college years. Having wasted years chasing his own dreams, he realized that Christ was what his heart longed for.
One night at a small country church he surrendered to Christ and has never looked back. Eric Longs to share the true Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world wherever, to whomever, and whenever the Lord leads. A father of three, he now lives with his wife Lauren and his daughter Grace in Salem, WV.
Jason McGough – Loris, SC
My name is Jason McGough. I am originally from Massachusetts. I have been married for 12 years to my lovely bride Missy. I have 4 children. Morgan (19), Jayce (10) Lillie (7), and Knox (1). And now one grandchild. Kennedy (6 mos).
I served in the U.S. Navy for 5 years aboard the submarine USS Miami (SSN-755) otherwise known as the “Big Gun” as a Mess Specialist (Cook). I departed the military in 2003 and moved to where I now call home, South Carolina. I began work at the outback Steakhouse as a grill cook and at that time met my beautiful bride, who was a server, Missy McGough. After hearing the Gospel and Christ regenerated my heart a year after meeting Missy, we were joined together in marriage and began our life together as one.
For about 8 years we immersed ourselves into a local Baptist church right down the road from where we lived and served in children’s ministry and choir singing. About 4 years ago a friend reached out to me about a local street ministry opportunity in Myrtle Beach. I had felt a burning desire to tell others about Christ, so this was my chance. After that night, I began to minister in the streets and joined my 1st outreach with a large group at the Fall for Greenville festival in 2013. After attending this outreach, I was introduced to SFOI and the SBO by a friend, and now this will be my 5th Super Bowl. My 2nd as Co-Director and 3rd as an unofficial Team Leader.
It has been a great pleasure serving with SFOI for the past 5 years as a student and helping hand to the ministry. I have met so many wonderful saints and look forward to serving more and more until the Lord returns or calls me home! Soli Deo Gloria.
Nathaniel Porter – Akron, OH
When I was six years old, I asked Jesus into my heart while I was on the potty. Growing up in an ordinary American evangelical household, I believed that praying the simple prayer of “Jesus please come into my heart,” was both necessary and sufficient to be saved from my sins. My parents had left the ELCA church we were attending around this time in my life because they had begun affirming homosexuality even in the early 1990s. We moved a non-denominational church that was more biblical, preached God’s Word, and encouraged personal study. Throughout my childhood my mom took me to all of the vacation bible schools and other church activities she could find. She always told me to think about Jesus before she dropped me off at. My dad always encouraged me to “keep my Bible where I could get at it.” My parents did the best they knew how to raise me in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
The problem was that the simple prayer didn’t bring about my conversion and Jesus wasn’t “in my heart.” The first time I look at pornography was when I was thirteen, I first got drunk when I was seventeen, and the first time I abused drugs was when I was twenty-three. I lived my life as a moralistic-therapeutic-deist. I was moralistic because I knew the Bible and the rules of pietistic Christianity. I was either proud and self-justified by this knowledge, or crushed when I failed to live up to my imaged standard. At the times I was crushed, I would come to God to therapeutically to either have my sins forgiven and to get more of His stuff. Finally, I was very deistic in that I didn’t see God as particularly involved in my affairs.
My conversion came when I was in law school at the age of twenty-seven. During the time I was in law school I had become severely addicted to Adderall and opiates. I had even obtained two different scripts from separate doctors. I was eventually caught double-dipping, cut off by the doctors, and was no longer able to continue in my addiction. Because of this I was forced to take a medical leave from law school and also to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. AA’s third step is to “Make a decision to turn your will and life over to God.” This is an impossible task for the natural man as I quickly found out. Around this time, I was also listening to sermons by a famous preacher in the Presbyterian tradition who made a point to preach the Gospel each time he exposited the Word. One night I had cried out that Jesus would never leave me, and this time God used a simple prayer to effect my conversion. Something had changed; I was changed and I needed to know what had happened.
I became Reformed early in my faith. When I was converted I immediately knew that my entire life I had not actually been a Christian. The first book of the Bible that I studied in any depth was Paul’s letter to the Romans. Romans 1:18-32 was the first place in the Bible that I noticed the Scriptures lining up perfectly with reality because it seemed to perfectly describe the depths of my depravity. I realized from this study that I was formally a God-hater and was now made new threw faith in Christ alone and not by any moralistic work.
Shortly after I became a Christian I served for three and half years in the middle school ministry at my former non-denomination church. There I taught a group of students from the time they were in sixth grade through eighth grade and began with a fresh crop of students until I moved
to a new church in the winter of 2018. I am now a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and hold to the Westminster Standards. I have been engaged in street evangelism since the summer of 2018.

Seth Porter – Akron, OH
I come from a non denominational household, attending church on most Sundays, where I heard the gospel preached. I also to many Wednesday evening church gatherings and many vacation bible schools during the summers. Though I heard the gospel it was not yet received. One day I was raking in my yard when I received the Holy Spirit. I started back to church and reading my bible more. Eventually I was introduced to the richness of reformed theology. After my entire life in church, and 4 and a half years of being a true Israelite, I am now a member at a reformed Presbyterian church. I don’t particularly enjoy every aspect of open air evangelism, but I do like doing what pleases the Lord.
Heath Pucel – Green Bay, WI
My name is Heath Pucel. I’ve been married 15 years a wonderful wife who keeps me humble. I live in Green Bay Wisconsin, and have a passion for teaching and training the Word. The Lord graciously granted me repentance unto salvation and from my false conversion in 2004 when I was praying in my naivety for how to share my faith Biblically. I attended previous witnessing training but it was more lifestyle evangelism; but in 2004, not only did he show me how, He also brought me to repentance in faith through the ministry of Living Waters. Since then, I’ve had a desire and burden to share the Gospel in Green Bay, around the country and abroad. My past experience with evangelism has opened up opportunities for me to attend outings such as: 2008 Ambassadors Academy #3, 6 Super Bowl Outreaches, 5 Kentucky Derby Outreaches, OAC SET 2012 and 2013. The Sweet Auburn Festival, ministry at ASU, UW Stevens Point and Madison campuses. Numerous local events such as Walleye weekend, Wisconsin State Fair, Jehovah’s Witness conventions, and Green Bay Packer Games. God has given me the privilege to meet up with faithful saints locally and across the country to labor and minister His word in the open air as well as lead outreach teams with all praise, glory and honor to His name.
Joshua Richards – Belle Center, Ohio
The Richards Family minister with Calvary Bible Crusade http://www.calvarybiblecrusade.com under the leadership and support of Bill Adams with the George Whitefield Program and their home church Calvary Bible Church http://www.cbclima.org in Lima, Ohio.
Joshua is happily married to Rachael and they live with their son Isaiah in Belle Center, Ohio. The goodness of God led Joshua to repent of his sin and trust in Christ alone for forgiveness at a young age. Joshua is still a work in progress, but he thanks God for His grace in sending Jesus to save him from the hell he deserves, and sealing his soul unto the day of redemption for all eternity
