EVANGELISMFUEL is leveraging technology through online resources to reach the nations with the Gospel. We have currently reached tens of thousands of souls for Jesus through our online platform. Not only do we share the good news of Jesus Christ, but just as important we connect them with a mentor to be Disciplined and teach them all that Christ has commanded us to do.
RECOVERYIf you’re tired of facing your struggles alone or feeling hopeless in your pursuit of a life free from sin, we want to challenge you to 40 days of The FUEL Study. The Study will give you a clear Biblical path to a life of freedom you’ve always wanted. Join the 100’s of men online right now that are learning from God’s Word as it is broken down each day along with the practical application to be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Rom 12:2).
DISCIPLESHIPToo often in our Christian growth, we learn and learn and don’t apply the truths and commands from God’s Word. We sometimes even deceive ourselves to believe that learning more and more about God and the Bible is spiritual growth. There’s nothing wrong with learning, but let’s be honest about it, it’s the next step – putting what we’ve learned into action that causes the growth.
MEETINGSWe are building a network of local meetings at a church near you. This is a time to get together with other brothers that are transparent and real and most importantly have a spirit of love toward those that are struggling in habitual sin. We will take one of the 40 Day online studies and break them down each week.
LIVINGThe Jordan Center is a facility in Costa Mesa, CA that provides a place to live and grow for up to 100 men at a time. This is a place for those who want to begin a life of freedom and need a Christ-centered place to live and grow in both their relationship with Christ and with other brothers that will walk this life with them.
We want to be one of the agents of change among Christian men in America that advances the kingdom and rebuilds the family. We do this primarily through weekly men’s meetings where we study God’s Word and live it out together through accountability and transparent relationships based on love.
FUEL Ministries is building a network of meetings in communities that will serve the local church. In addition to the physical meeting, we have an extensive online Bible Study that is focused on teaching men the Biblical prescriptions used to battle the strongholds in their lives that are holding them down.
Another cornerstone of the FUEL ministry is The Jordan Center, which is a 100-man recovery center that is based on discipleship and making disciples that make disciples. We also us the E3 process of Encouragement, Equipping and Empowering men to carry out the great commission with the gifts that God has given them.
The last two pieces of FUEL is to be proactive in reaching parents of Jr. High and High School students with the tools to equip them in understanding the pitfalls of technology that their kids are in or will be introduced to, in an addition to quarterly outreaches to get the word out about FUEL Ministries and be able to minister to men in the community that are caught in the bondage of sin and might not know Jesus.

3. Prayer is what we rely on to accomplish anything. 12Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. John 14:12-13 (NIV)
4. Multiply the gifts that God gives. 19Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ 21His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ Matthew 25:19-21 (ESV)
