Bill Adams – Chattanooga, TN

Bill Adams was raised in the church, Baptist and Methodist, and has never in his life not known of or considered God in his life. In 1988 upon graduation from Belmont University’s Masters in Business program the Lord personally entered Bill’s life and called Bill to follow Him. That began a 29 year journey of following Jesus Christ and growing in the grace and knowledge of Him.

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.

In 2007 Sports Fan Outreach [SFOI] was born as an effort to bring more Saints with him to preach at these sporting events and now through the SFOI George Whitefield program Bill is seeking men who believed they are called into full-time evangelism to join him to saturate the Western World with the Gospel.

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.

Bill is married and has four children. He is a commissioned evangelist of the Diocese of the Central States of the Reformed Episcopal Church which is part of the Anglican Church of North America and is presently enrolled in the Masters of Theology program at Union School of Theology headquartered in Oxford, England. You can read Bill’s personal theological thoughts here: Bill Adams’ Theological Writings: Views from an Evangelist.


Joe Conkle –  Ashland, OH

I am a father of 3 adult children and have 1 grandson. God, by his grace saved me 10 years ago after living as a false convert for 31 years. Since then I’ve been compelled to share the Gospel. I normally do street ministry with the Prayer Stand outside the local Courthouse, Ashland University along with my pastor Matt Timmons and friend David Nicol.

Other evangelistic efforts include THE Ohio State Buckeyes home games, and helping other fellow evangelist.

My desire is to glorify God, be obedient to his word, and be a better evangelist.

Be Bold,

Joe Conkle


Brackston Combs – Bloomington, IL

My Name is Brackston, I currently reside in Bloomington, IL with my Wife Amanda and our three children. We have been married for almost 9 years. I am a retired U.S. Army Veteran with 2 combat deployments to Iraq. I am a previously professing backsliding Atheist/Agnostic. The first time I came to Church was when my wife tricked me into going by telling me we were going to an Ice Cream Social, but God was dealing with me far before that during Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation shortly before I left the Army. I spent most of my life addicted to some sort of Drug. I needed inebriation almost constantly because I did not want to face the absurdity of my World Views. You know the story, I blamed God for all of the bad things in my life – But refused to worship him or give him Thanks. But, God had mercy on my soul by putting people in my life who were not afraid to tell me the truth of my ways and rebuke me. After a very traumatic PTSD episode which involved me attempting suicide by Jumping out of a moving vehicle and resulted in a severe hospitilization – I came to the end of my rope after my Pastor came to visit me and sternly told me – I am not allowed to test God. I still struggled with full repentance, I was counting the cost I guess you could say. But, God Finally opened my eyes in the end of 2015 and he began to start ripping all of the idols that I had, out of my life. He broke me for service. I had made an extremely significant prayer, I prayed that if it was his will – I would give him my entire life and dedicate it in service to Him, and the furthering of the Kingdom. Well, he answered that Prayer and in the beginning of 2016 after moving into our new home, I would struggle with the two idols I hadn’t fully let go of – Drugs and Alcohol. But, God continued to remind of my promise. After coming across Evangelism videos on YouTube, and watching The Way Of The Master I began to realize Gods calling for my life was not to evangelize to my pot smoking buddies. I began to search on the internet, and found an amplifer and decided to purchase it. When the box arrived, I began to look at it – and realized I could not be a Cigarette and Pot smokin’, drunk of an evangelist. On that day, February 2nd 2016 I gave God all of my remaining Idols – My addictions. After this day, I began to go to locations with my amplifier and attempt to evangelize but, would ultimately chicken out. I began to pass out tracts in various parts of Bloomington and Normal, Illinois and that is when God put in front of me what has became, my Best Friend, a true brother, and my mentor – Ken Hisle. Since that day, instead of trying to quench my thirst for drugs and alcohol, I developed an unquenchable thirst for learning more and more about God, His Righteousness and the true way my life is meant to be lived, and to most importantly fufill my calling to “Go and Preach the Gospel to All Creation.” Sola Deo Gloria!


Michael Corral – Falls Church, VA

I am layman evangelist and open air preacher in Washington DC and member of and under the authority of the Pastors and Elders at Capitol Hill Baptist Church (CHBC). I have been a supernaturally born again Christian since around 2004, found out I was a Calvinist around 2008 and was re-baptized and became a member at CHBC in 2011. I started studying and practicing evangelism mostly online starting around 2005. After witnessing to a cousin-in law, now a pastor in Florida, he started open air preaching on the streets of DC, and after many invitations, I finally joined him in 2007, and haven’t stopped since. I have personally spoken / witnessed to thousands upon thousands of people, and handled out tens and tens of thousands of Gospel tracts. I have open air preached to all kinds people, always preaching a Calvinistic Gospel and Expository Preaching, with an evangelistic message, hundreds and hundreds of times.

I am married to a young wife, for one year as of May 1, 2017. We don’t have children at this time, but we are working on it. I work fulltime in the commercial real estate industry, I also work part-time in the retail industry (marriage is expensive). I try to go out of my way to do evangelism on Saturdays, the rest of the time, whenever the opportunity presents itself. I collect antiquarian books. I would like to plant a Church in a busy city someday, and hope to be a pastor and author, when it is the Lord’s will and those doors are opened.


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 nine years, Whitney and has a daughter Karaline (4) and a son Kalel (2). 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. Adam is on an “elder track” in his local church, is enrolled in Ekklesia Theological Seminary, is currently teaching through the book of Hebrews to the adult Sunday School and teaches/preaches weekly at the government housing projects in his home town. 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.


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

Ben Grady – Madison, TN

My name is Ben Grady. I have been a servant of Christ for five years now. My childhood was spent in a secular home where I didn’t know anything about the Lord. The Lord got my attention after I came to Nashville and started attending a church where I was involved in a study through the Bible. For a time I struggled with whether the Bible could be trusted, but God supernaturally caused me to trust on His word and follow Jesus. Immediately I wanted to share the good news with others, although my knowledge was very shallow and filled with bad theology. I didn’t know anything about what it meant to follow Jesus, but I knew that He said that He had nowhere to lay His head and that those who claim to live in Him must walk as He walked, so I thought that God wanted me to be homeless to follow Him. I became voluntarily homeless, ended up at the local homeless shelter, went through their Life Recovery Program, and have now been on staff for a little over four years. Over time, God has opened my eyes to the glory of the depth of the gospel and good theology. The Lord has so blessed me to give me a job where I get to spread the gospel and work with computers at the same time. I now desire to do what I can to share with all of Jesus and to glorify God in doing so. I have also been blessed with a wonderful wife! We just celebrated our second anniversary.

Lucas Mann – Clinton, SC

Greetings! I am Rev. Lucas Jackson Mann and I am an evangelist, preacher, teacher, and servant of Jesus Christ. I grew up in a Christian family and, at age 7, made a profession of faith in Christ. However, I was not truly saved. Instead, I was falsely converted and continued to live in blatant sin, all while thinking I was a Christian. At the age of about 15, God powerfully came into my life and saved me! My life was amazingly changed, I grew so much and changed so much. I had indeed truly believed in Jesus for my salvation. Ever since then, I have been serving the Lord through evangelism, preaching, and teaching, all for the glory of God! I have been ordained into the ministry by my home church, First Baptist Church Cross Hill and I am in the process of getting my ministry, Gospel Of Grace Ministries, started, all by God’s amazing and unfailing grace. Currently, I am serving the Lord in while staying in the Orlando area and enjoy evangelizing in the streets, the local abortion mill, sports areas, and even a campground in the area, anywhere that I can preach Christ and Him crucified and raised from the grave. Praise God for His wonderful grace!


Bobby McCreery – Athens, GA

Bobby is the husband of an excellent, devoted, and prayerful wife and father of three wonderful daughters and one son. Bobby was raised in a Christian home, and around age 8 prayed a “sinner’s prayer” and was told if he meant it then he was saved and would always be saved.  He walked in darkness loving his sin for over 20 years until God granted him true repentance and faith and made him a new creation in Christ in January of 2009.  Glory to God alone!

Bobby attended Living Waters’ Ambassador’s Academy in August 2009 and is also grateful to God for the mentoring he has received from experienced evangelists around the world.  This will be his sixth Super Bowl Outreach and fourth as a team leader.  He has also had the privilege of speaking  and/or leading outreach teams at events like Jeremiah Cry’s Herald Society and East Coast Tours, The Kentucky Derby, Fall for Greenville, London’s 2012 Summer Olympics, and Wimbledon 2013 to name a few.

Bobby is the founder of To the End of the Earth ministries and left his secular job to respond to the Lord’s call to full-time evangelistic service in January 2011.

His main mission field is Athens, GA, where he preaches on the campus of the University of Georgia, in downtown Athens, at a nearby abortion clinic, and anywhere else people can be found.

He is an ordained gospel minister and deacon at Cleveland Road Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist congregation, and holds to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.

His great desire is to by the grace of God is to honor Christ by loving his wife and children first while serving, encouraging, and equipping the local church.  He also prays that God would be pleased to revive and awaken the city of Athens, GA and the University of Georgia.  Bobby also serves on the staff of Jeremiah Cry Ministries and works closely with Sports Fan Outreach International and Revival USA.  Contact Bobby via email at bobby@totheendoftheearth.org


Jason McGough – Loris, SC

My name is Jason McGough. I am from Loris, SC. I have been married for 10 years to my lovely bride Missy. I have 4 children. Morgan (17), Jayce (8) Lillie (5), and Knox.

This will be my 2nd Kentucky Derby. I also have had the pleasure to labor with SFOI during the 3 previous Superbowl outreaches and the dogwood festival in the past. Lord willing, I am looking forward to this year’s Derby to be able to have fellowship with the saints who will be attending, and labor with them to reach the lost with the heralding of the Gospel.


Jeffery Padia – Fayetteville, GA

I’m yet another survivor of cheap grace, easy believe-ism, “Americanized” evangelicalism. Baptized at age 16, though a false convert, I quickly succumbed to the worldliness and sin that my flesh craved. I found myself in a prolonged downward spiral, increasingly wallowing in the dregs of my wickedness and rebellion against God. I pursued every worldly thing that I thought might make me happy. I spent several years as a drunkard, regularly driving intoxicated after nights of bar-hopping. But God, being rich in mercy, opened my eyes to see how patient and kind and merciful He had been to me in preserving my life, even though His justice could have fallen on me like a hammer. In the misery of my lowest depths, I became dreadfully aware that I was not owed another day of His mercy. It was then that God granted me eyes to see His beauty, and grace to believe in Jesus as my only hope. The riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience had, indeed, led me to repentance (Romans 2:4)! Now, I’m thankful to be a five point, five sola, servant of the most high God!

My recent retirement from a 26 year career as an Air Traffic Controller here in Atlanta has afforded me the opportunity to attend several evangelism conferences, and has allowed some additional much-needed time to focus on becoming a better-equipped servant of the Lord. As a member of Faith Bible Church in nearby Sharpsburg, GA, I’m thankful to have been able to proclaim the glories of Jesus Christ and His gospel as a member of our nursing home visitation team over the past several years. God continues to grow me through ministry opportunities at local abortion mills, as well as through local outreaches with fellow SFOI evangelists Steven Ely and Jim Grega. My recent trip to the 2016 Kentucky Derby SFOI Outreach served to further fuel my passion to proclaim the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.

I’m honored to be associated with Bill Adams and Sports Fan Outreach International, and am humbled to be entrusted with the task of proclaiming Christ at the Atlanta Falcons home games during this 2016 season. If you desire to join in this work, please contact me for information so that I may help you! Soli Deo Gloria!

Heath Pucel –  Green Bay, WI

My name is Heath Pucel. I’ve been married 12 years a wonderful wife who keeps me humble. I live in Green Bay Wisconsin, and I’m a trainer for a large health insurance company. 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 had attended a lot of witnessing training in the past 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, the 2012 ,2013, 2015 & 2016 Super Bowl Outreaches, 2013 and 2014 Kentucky Derby Outreaches, OAC SET 2012 and 2013. The Sweet Auburn Festival, ministry at ASU, UW Stevens Point and Madison campuses and 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 and all praise, glory and honor to His name.


Andy Schmelzer – Summersville, WV

Andy grew up Catholic but at a very young age knew something was missing. As a teen, siblings shared the good news in an ask Jesus in your heart way. This, he embraced and lived as a false convert until the Lord granted him repentance about the age of 35. He and his wife learned biblical evangelism in 2004 stumbling across WOTM TV show. Since then evangelism for them was forever changed.

He with his wife started Fishers of Men Medical Ministries and did overseas evangelical/medical missions from 2003-2011 and has since then focused on local evangelism in the immediate area and around the US. He looks forward to serving Bill and the team members that the Lord will put together through prayer. Lately the U of Oregon has been Andy’s weekly fishing hole and when school is out the weekly local farmer’s market. May God rise up more laborers to join the harvest.

As of September Andy and Victoria moved to Summersville, WV and are looking forward to being closer to their grandkids. Andy has joined up with Jaycen Saab who is nearby for ministry and looks forward to growing that friendship and doing summer festival ministry as well as getting involved in preaching at WVU and Marshall campuses. He has preached at some Mountaineer football games and found the stadium to be a fruitful place to preach Christ and will look forward to the same at Marshall games.

Andy is looking forward to being closer to other ministry opportunities in the east and southeast at some NASCAR speedways as well as joining SFOI for Kentucky Derby and other events that are located closer to his new home.


Steven Stanley – Morehead, KY

My name is Steven Stanley and I live in Morehead KY with my wife and two sons. I have worked in healthcare for 19 years, but my calling is to preach the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!

I lived the majority of my adult life as a non-believer, then was a false convert for about 2 years before God granted me genuine repentance and faith in His precious Son. He immediately placed a burden on my heart for the lost. Over the last 6 years I have grown by God’s grace in my evangelism endeavors.  I have attended the Super Bowl Outreaches in New Orleans, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco and also the last four KY Derby Outreaches.  I live in a college town so when school is in session I enjoy going to campus to open air preach and hand out Gospel tracts. I also travel to Lexington, KY to minister with Cities for Life-Lexington outside the abortion clinic.

I am also a seminary student at Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary in Owensboro, KY seeking my Masters in Pastoral Studies and ultimately my MDiv.


It is a privilege and honor to preach Christ and Him crucified and I look forward to laboring with my brothers and sisters in the Lord! SDG!


Jamie Terry – Hendersonville, TN

My name is Jamie Terry and I am a full-time evangelist and street preacher with Revival-USA. I live in Hendersonville Tennessee with my wife and two children. I preach full-time on the streets of Downtown Nashville, sporting events, college campuses, and anywhere else people gather. I lived as a false convert from the age of seven and was truly converted in February of 2011 as I listened to Paul Washer’s, “Shocking Youth Message”. That day I realized I was a totally depraved sinner and a false convert who was headed for hell. For the first time in my life I understood the cross and that God crushed His only Son in my place. By the grace of God I responded to the gospel in repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ. Since that day I have been consumed with Christ and His word. He gave me a new heart with new desires. I now long to see the gospel preached among the nations and to see God glorified in the name of Jesus Christ.

Jared(1987), Seth(1989), Ethan(1989), Aaron(1991) and Adam(1984). The boys were primarily home schooled from 1991 to 2013. Both Jared and Seth serve in The U.S. Coast Guard. Ethan is a career firefighter/paramedic in Currituck County, North Carolina. Aaron is employed at Wellesley Assisted care Facility as a food services manager. Adam serves in the U.S. Air Force. Joe and Wendy have been blessed with six grandchildren named: Forest, Joseph Conner, Morgan, Savannah and Jackson.

In 1988, Joe and Wendy moved to Philadelphia to begin an association With Open Air Campaigners. During this time, they worked in an internship status with this mission board. The ministry of Open Air Campaigners is to do the work of Evangelism and to train others in Evangelism in an urban setting. This association lasted until 1992 when Joe resigned because of doctrinal issues that conflicted with the EC Church. Upon resolution of the proposed doctrinal changes within OAC, Joe served as an associate evangelist with them until 2000. Joe now serves on the board of directors of OAC, Inc. At this point Joe became one of the few Evangelical Congregational Church Denominational missionaries, which is a status that continued until 2008. In 1993, Joe established a ministry called Open Air Ministries-Philadelphia. Now Joe has formed his own 501c non-profit corporation called Open Air Ministries, Inc from 2009 until the present day.

Joe’s ministry is primarily evangelistic by nature. Outreach is conducted at bus stops, subways, college campuses, center city, parades, events, neighborhoods, parks and other areas in and around the Metro Philadelphia Area. Joe does weekly outreach in Camden, NJ and in the summer conducts outreach at the New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware beach resorts. Through the years, Joe has been involved in the Philadelphia Port Ministry from 1988 to 2001. Also, much outreach has been done in inner city neighborhoods with children. Joe was a co-pastor for Metro Kids an outdoor kid’s church in various locations in Philadelphia from 2007 to 2011. Many times a year Joe travels to national events such as Mardi Gras, Indy 500, Spring Break Florida, Senior Week in Ocean City, MD and others to share the gospel. Another large part of Joe’s work is training others in evangelism. Joe spends a number of weeks each year training youth groups, college students, missionary candidates and others in evangelism. Some of these groups spend time with in Philly for a day or a week. The summer is especially busy with hosting these teams, including a number of EC Church youth groups. Joe and Wendy and Aaron live in Folcroft, which is in Delaware County, PA. Folcroft is located very close to the Philadelphia Airport. They attend Crossroads Community Church, which is in Upper Darby.

Dennis Vance –  Springfield, MO

I am Dennis Vance and I live in Springfield, MO. God has blessed me with my godly wife – Polly. I grew up going to church and I said the sinner’s prayer when I was 11 years old. But there was no change in my life after I asked Jesus to save me. I lived as a false convert for the next 33 years until God graciously saved me while reading the Bible in the Fall of 2007. He convicted me with Matthew 7:21-23 and then He converted me with Romans 8:1 when He revealed to me that for all those years I had still lived in the flesh instead of walking with Christ in the Spirit. Immediately I repented and put my faith in Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Thank You Lord for saving me!

Then in the beginning of 2009 God convicted me that I needed to share my faith in Jesus with others. I didn’t know how to share the Gospel until a Christian co-worker loaned me the first season of Way of the Master and after the second episode I was on the phone ordering tracts. I’ve been street witnessing ever since. There is no greater privilege or honor than lifting up the name of Jesus Christ in the open-air. My hope and prayer is that God will allow me to do this kingdom work until the day I die.


Adam Wright – Canton, OH

My name is Adam Wright and I live in Canton, Ohio. I am married with two boys and two girls, one of them will be getting married real soon. I have an evangelistic outreach ministry with my 17 year old son. I am really excited to see what the Lord has in store for us!!!

My testimony is that I was raised in a very strong Christian home with great Christian parents. Middle school and high school were real hard for me and I began to hang around some sketchy kids. I had a rebellious streak a mile long. After I graduated, I went into the Navy and became an agnostic which somehow led to me getting involved in Wicca (paganism) and got real messed up spiritually. I got out of the Navy and lived a life of drugs, blasphemy, death metal, and everything evil I could think of. It seems that the Lord had other plans. He drew me to Himself in ways that sound crazy now. I was radically saved and born again. My life has really never been the same. Evangelism is my passion and I one day hope to be in full time ministry preaching the Gospel to the ends of the Earth, God willing, of course. I am so excited to be a part of this outreach. This one is my first SFOI Outreach.


Mark Yoho – Sugar Valley, GA

Mark was raised in a non-Christian home in Canton Ohio with a little exposure to Roman Catholicism. Upon Graduation from High school in 1983 he served 3 years active duty military in the US Army. Shortly after discharge, the Nation being in an economic recession, Mark moved to the Atlanta Georgia area seeking employment.

There he met the love of his life and they lived together for 10 years. Through alcohol, drugs, and the pursuit of personal wealth Mark suffered the loss of family and all of his possessions. It was during this time that Mark walked into Newtown Baptist Church in Calhoun GA and heard Pastor David Ray preach a sermon titled, “You must be born again.” As soon as the invitation was given Mark met Pastor Ray in the altar where he repented of sin and trusted CHRIST as his personal Savior. On March 29, 1998 Mark Yoho was born again and life began to radically change. Mark began to share his newfound faith in CHRIST immediately and continued to make it a lifestyle.

Seven months later GOD restored his relationship with the love of his life, he and Gynnette were finally and forever married. Four years later, February 17, 2002, GOD called Mark to preach as an evangelist. As an evangelist Mark has traveled all across the US conducting evangelistic outreaches, teaching evangelism, and preaching revivals. Much of the evangelistic outreaches have been in the inner city and at major events. Since December 1, 2007 Mark has served GOD as a full time vocational evangelist in his own ministry, the Fourth Watch Evangelistic Ministry www.fourthwatchministry.com.

Mark and Gynnette live in the little community of Sugar Valley, nestled in the mountains of North Georgia. They have two married children and their home church is Grove Level Baptist Church in Dalton GA www.grovelevel.org
