Advance the cause of Christ!
Whether in the first century or the twenty-first century, the church is the Lord’s! We’ve been promised victory. He’s already won the war over sin and death. But we need to continue to battle for the souls of people until He comes back!
Jesus also said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…” (Matthew 28:18-20 NASB)
At Jim McLoud Ministries, we’ve been committed to that mission for nearly 40 years. Through a variety of programs—leadership training, teacher training, church growth, revivals, men’s clinics, etc.—we provide tools, resources, and encouragement to churches to help them be strong, faithful, and effective.
May your church never be content, but always intentionally advancing the cause of Christ with the love, grace, and wisdom that He provides!

- “I’ve been to other seminars. I was skeptical of what this would be. Sometimes it seems like someone has found a job that pays OK and found a way to take 5 hours to get a point discussed. I did not see that here. All the information was useful and scriptural. Very timely for our situation.” –Dennis Day, Ohio
- “What you are offering is of vital importance to our churches. You have given us a true motivation to love, learn and live the Word of God.” – Bob Moulden, North Carolina

His presentation left us enthused and eager to do whatever it takes to glorify God.” – Jack King, Ohio
