Calling on help to equip pastors with truth from God’s Word

Dear Friends,

Anna and I will be flying to Haiti next week to conduct Module 5 for our national pastors. As always, we are calling on you, our faithful supporters, for help. The total need to fully pay the cost of the module is $20,000. We have received $8,000 to date. Please pray that this need will be met completely and consider sending a donation to help us raise the remaining $12,000. Thank you for your support. Together we can help this unique ministry fulfill its mission to equip national pastors with truth from God’s Word.

Donations can be made on our Website or mailed to our home office:

Approaching the end of our 17th year of ministry

Dear Friends of On Target Ministry,

As we approach the end of the year, we are excited to see how God is still using this ministry for His glory in training national pastors overseas. The ministry in Colombia is going well and we are looking forward to more teaching there in 2024. The Haiti Bible Institute has reached the halfway point in training the pastors in Cohort 4. It is so encouraging to see the enthusiasm our pastoral students have for learning the Word of God.

As we are approaching the end of our 17th year of ministry, we would love to share a few ways you can help us finish 2023 strong.

  1. Look ahead on your calendar and plan to attend our “Love for Haiti” banquet February 10, 2024, at NOON at Fellowship Baptist Church in Lakeland, Florida. We have planned a great banquet for you to show you firsthand the success of the Haiti Bible Institute. We will have a guest speaker from Haiti. You will also hear from some of our Haitian Faculty.
  2. Call, text, or email me that you plan to come so we can add you to the guest list. We planned this banquet for you, and I know it will be a blessing and encouragement to you to see how your investments in this ministry are advancing the cause of Christ. (715-558-2227 or [email protected])
  3. If you cannot attend, please consider sending a special donation to On Target Ministry to help with the expense of Module 5 which takes place at the end of February 2024. This would be a great help to us to receive your special gift before yearend.
  4. Invite someone to come to the banquet with you! What a great way to introduce someone to this unique ministry.
  5. Pray that God will faithfully continue to meet our needs to carry on this important work.

Thank you all for your faithful support. We hope to see you at the banquet so we can thank you in person!

Grace and peace.
Doc and Anna

Going to Haiti! International Update August 2023

Click here to view the Newsletter  

Dear Friends,

Here is the latest edition of International Update. It is all about Haiti! We are going there next month to teach Module 4 to Cohort 4. In the newsletter you will read about the teachers, the students, the school, and the current political situation in Haiti. Please take a minute and read the letter and pray for us.

We are also in need of funds to cover the cost of the module. If you would prayerfully consider sending an extra gift to help us, we would be deeply appreciative. The school is 100% donor supported and your giving is essential to the success of the school. Even if you regularly support our ministry, an extra gift this month will go a long way in helping us reach our goal. Thank you for your help!

We will have four Haitian teachers teaching four courses. I will also be teaching Doctrine of the Bible. Pray for both teachers and students as they prepare for ministry in this needy country.

Grace and peace,
Doc and Anna

We Serve Together – International Update June 2023

Dear Friends of OTM,

Here is the latest edition of International Update. Please download and read to learn about the recent trip to Colombia and the upcoming trip to Haiti.

Pray that God will once again provide the necessary funds for Module 4 at the Haiti Bible Institute. We have seen God provide for the past 30 modules (15 years!) and we are trusting Him to provide once again.

Also see in the letter the important section “We Serve Together.” This ministry is a partnership with you, our donors, and this should be a strong encouragement to you as we serve together to accomplish the mission of training national pastors in Haiti. This is an investment that will reap eternal rewards.

Grace and peace,
Doc and Anna

Module 2 was a great success! International Update Fall 2022

Click here to view the Newsletter  

Dear Friends and Supporters,
Module 2 was a great success! Thank you all for your prayers and gifts that made this module possible. This edition of International Update recounts the blessings of this module, and the wonderful way God provided the financial need. It will encourage you. Read and enjoy!
All the students in Cohort 4 were able to attend the Module despite the turmoil in Haiti and the high gas prices ($18/gallon!) Their faithfulness and commitment to learning Bible truth is truly inspiring. This is a great group of pastors, and your investment in their theological education is very well spent. God is using these men greatly to preach truth and evangelize in Haiti. They are making a difference for the cause of Christ. Thank you all for helping us train them for even greater service unto the Lord.
Grace and peace,
Doc and Anna
