His method is this: “Raising the Standard Ministries is not concerned with membership – we want to teach people to be disciples of Christ and God will add to the church as He sees fit”.  His favorite scripture is Romans 8:28 – “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose”.
