Speaker Ryan Jones – On a Mission to Save Children From Poverty
Having been a Missions Director at my church, I understand how difficult it is for people to engage and understand the work of missions. One of our desires is to help them connect with a project and then visit it in person so that missions becomes personal and not something on the other side of the world. Everything we do is to help assist the work on the ground by the missionaries in the field. Personally, my passion is to engage people and help them see how the Lord can use them around the world to affect people for eternity. I have a degree in Civil Engineering and an MS in Land Development from Texas A&M. I have worked for Fortune 500 companies, started my own company, performed consulting services, developed software, travelled, etc. What I have found is many people believe that since the Lord didn’t call them to be a Pastor or Missionary that He doesn’t have a real plan to use them in some extraordinary way. I want to help them see their value and use their gifts and talents for the Kingdom.
