|John and Martine Smithwick|
John and Martine have traveled the world, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost, the unreached and also to the believer. They have carried God's healing, miracle power to over twenty-five nations and have seen God perform many notable miracles of healing. Since they founded JSMI in 1998, John Smithwick Ministries International has seen over one million souls won to Jesus through mass crusade evangelism and strategic outreaches. In many unreached areas of the world, JSMI has planted and funded new churches and equipped new believers with discipleship materials.
JSMI is dedicated to raising up a generation that is focused on Reaping the Harvest. That is why John and Martine launched Global Ventures Team Trips in 2002. Through Global Ventures they take people all over the world, training and equipping them as they take part in the "hands-on" winning of souls and working of miracles. People's lives are forever changed after coming on just one of these trips!
One of the countries John and Martine have specifically focused on is the country of Thailand. Although missionaries have been there over 150 years, still Thailand remains less than one percent Christian. In 2005, The Thailand Harvest Plan was launched and already 50,000 people have been won into the Kingdom. In this strategic plan, JSMI targets unreached regions of Thailand where John and Martine conduct mass crusades and plant brand new churches where none existed before. As a result, the unreached are saved, the new believers are raised up and the nation is being changed!
John also ministers in churches and Bible schools, bringing a relevant message of purpose and inspiration. He exhorts believers to work the miracles of Jesus and to take their rightful place in the End-Time Harvest of souls. John's heart is for believers to rise up in God's power and authority according to Mark 16:15-20, in order to effectively reach their world for Jesus. John conducts evangelism training seminars and workshops in the U.S., empowering churches and believers to be effective soul winners. He also conducts crusades and outreaches in the U.S. to help churches reach their areas with the Gospel and grow their local bodies with new believers!
Martine also conducts Childrens Crusades all over the world. These crusades draw some of the largest crowds, ranging from several hundred to 15,000 children in attendance. The children also experience the miracles of God as they boldy testify of their healing. Martine also conducts Children's Ministry Workshops abroad as well as in the U.S. During these intensive training sessions, people are taught how to minister and conduct outreaches to children of all ages. After attending one of these seminars, people are stirred for childrens ministry and ready to take action.
John graduated from Oral Roberts University and Rhema Bible Training Center and worked extensively for Teen Mania as well as Impact Productions. Martine is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center, DOMATA school of Missions, and school of Ministry at Church on the Move, pastored by Willie George.
