Vanguard Ministries International

On behalf of the Vanguard Ministries International family, thank you for visiting our new website. We hope you enjoy the look and feel, and find what you’re looking for as you browse through the various pages. The inspiration for the name and tagline comes from Romans 15:20, “It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation.” Perhaps you will find a way to invest your life with us as you read through our website.

It was not until I was 47 years old, during a powerful sermon by Pastor William Gunter, that I felt a burden to commit myself to God’s service. It was then I promised Him “I would go wherever He wanted me to go, and do whatever He wanted me to do.” I will never forget the joy and freedom I experienced that day. As Jesus said in John 8:36, “If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

Does this speak to a deep desire within your heart? Are you seeking God’s call on your heart, and how you can be His hands and feet around the world? If so, we’d like to help you find your place in Vanguard Ministries International. Contact us at with your questions, prayer concerns and story.

Thank you, again, for visiting our site, and may God richly bless you.
