Patrick Oben Ministries Inc. was founded with a Vision of “building a glorious Church” by the teaching of the Word of God through the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit. Our Mission is ” to equip and empower people with the Word of God through teaching, publishing and outreaches to recovery facilities such as addiction centers and homeless shelters”. The Word of God is able to bring freedom from physical and spiritual bondages, healing to the brokenness of human hearts, restoration of purpose and fulfillment as well as bringing us to a rich and fulfilling relationship with our heavenly Father. It is the singular desire of our ministry is to bring men and women to experience the presence and power of the living Christ through the knowledge of His Word by the working of His Holy Spirit.
We recognize building a ministry as such requires both human and financial resources. We believe in giving and partnership to support the work of the ministry but also recognize that money has become both a distortion of the Gospel and a distraction from the purpose of Ministry in some circles today. We purposefully do not solicit “financial seeds” or make appeals for money. We welcome financial and technical support from those whose hearts are in line with the vision and mission of the work the Lord has given us to fulfill.
Our ministry currently has different arms to bring about the fulfillment of our mission. Some are currently functional while others are still in development which will be established as the Lord enlarges our human and financial resources through God-sent Spirit-filled partners.
