Mission Statement and Purpose

Mission Statement

For the fulfillment of the Great Commission, DELTA Ministries International serves as a missions resource for the local church as it cultivates Christ-like character and behavior in individuals. Romans 8:12-17; 1 Thess. 4:3-8; 1 Tim. 4:12.


african manThe purpose of DELTA Ministries International is the discipleship of individuals using scripturally sound missionary activities.  We believe that if the life and character of the individual are developed and in submission to God, then they will have an effective ongoing ministry both cross-culturally and after they return home.

We seek to view the circumstances and events of life from a Kingdom Perspective realizing that God has a greater plan at work than ours and that it may not always be visible to us.  Our agenda is always secondary to God's.

We seek to focus on process over product.  While we want the end product of our ministry to be professional and glorifying to God, at the end of the day, the process by which God shapes our lives and the lives of those we're ministering to is of greater importance than a quantified product.

The method by which we seek to accomplish these things is through coaching, resourcing and mobilizing individuals and teams through the local church for effective short- and mid-term ministry.  Training will also be used to equip businesses and other cause-based and activity-based organizations in group dynamics, team building and communication.  This will be based on the same spiritually sound principles used to train all those who serve with our short- and mid-term ministries.

We seek to be field-driven in all that we do.   Our goal is to bless, assist and complement the ongoing, long-term ministry, not hinder or damage it.


To mobilize means to put into movement. DELTA puts individuals, churches, schools and partners into movement to accomplish The Great Commission. This movement is from a home, pew, or seat to a field location around the world. Since 1979, DELTA has put 10,000 individuals and over 1,000 churches, schools and ministries into 100 countries and 30 US states.
