Tell us about your career and what you do now.
For nearly 40 years, I have been fortunate to travel, teach, and preach in 123 nations. In 1984, we launched Cutting Edge International and the Global Church Network in 2002. The Global Church Network comprises of more than 2,400 denominations and 560,000 churches. Our synergistic purpose is to help mobilize the entire Body of Christ toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission by 2030. In October 2017, we hosted the Wittenberg 2017 Congress in Wittenberg, Germany. The Wittenberg 2017 Congress convened on the exact dates of the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther nailing the 95 Theses on Castle Church Door.
