Bob and Carol Gibson
Brother Bob is married to Carol Gibson and they they live in League City, TX where they enjoy four grown children, eight grandchildren, & two great-grandchildren.
He has a passion to see the Great Commission fulfilled in his lifetime. He and other members of Lost Sheep Ministries have travelled to 45 countries on five continents sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with thousands. Brother Bob has been gifted by the Holy Spirit with the gifts of evangelism, prophecy, and teaching. He founded Lost Sheep Ministries in 1992 to stir up local churches to become "glocal" churches. That is a local church with a global vision. Creation - Covenant - Commission - Consumed - Celebration is how he views God's plan for the nations. Brother Bob is being used in local churches today as he teaches a conference on God's Renown which ignites the local church for obedience and servant hood.
Brother Bob recently resigned as pastor of San Leon Community Church in San Leon, TX so he could devote full time to the Lost Sheep Ministries.
He is a USA Viet Nam veteran and wants to bless the people of Viet Nam with the Gospel of Christ.
Through Lost Sheep Ministries, he plans his part of the Great Commission with travel to Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Brazil, Vietnam, Pakistan, China, the Philippines and Australia by the end of 2014. He promotes the Training for Trainers (T4T) process and is developing training materials in the form of PowerPoint presentations and student manuals in various languages to be posted on the www.lostsheepministries.com. web site.
He is now in his early 70s and retains a spiritual zeal for training others to become Disciples of Christ, start small groups, start churches, and raise up leaders around the world.
John & Dottie (Mammy) Overton
Discipleship Writers and Teachers
John & Dottie Overton live in Dickinson, TX, USA. They have been married for 59 years. John recently retired from Boeing where he worked for many years as an aerospace engineer. They have developed a series of Christian discipleship materials which they teach in local churches and local Addiction Recovery Centers. Though they are of Southern Baptist background, they emphasize Christianity rather than any denomination in their teachings.
Release of David Garrison's book, T4T, A Discipleship Re-Revolution has inspirted the preparation of training presentations on how to effectively evangelize, disciple, form small groups leading to the formation of churches and the development of Christian leaders. The Training for Trainers (T4T) process is resulting in the rapid spread of the Gospel across whole nations. Please see these materials under the Spiritual Awakening, T4T tab of his web site.
They have recently joined Lost Sheep Ministry. Our goal is to translate the material into many languages and make them available at no charge.
Pastor Leonardo Diaz has completed the translation of their materials into Spanish (currently being used in churches in Texas, Mexico, and Nicaragua). Pastor Bathanh Vo has translated these materials into Vietnamese. Pastor Vo lives in Galveston, TX where he ministers to Vietnamese in the Galveston County and Houston TX area. The T4T materials have recently been translated into Portugese as well by Licia Pinto. All may be viewed on this web site as well as downloaded for local use at no charge.
Microsoft Power Point is used to project discipleship training slides and students are provided a manual with all of the Power Point slides embedded so they can follow the slides and make notes in their manual. Lost Sheep Ministries intent is not just to transfer information about the urgency of discipleship but to make Disciples of Christ.
Lazarus & Dalia Vargas
Lazarus has been serving with Lost Sheep Ministries for 7 years now. He has faithfully continued our monthly trips to Piedras Negras, Mexico for more than 3 years.
After their marriage, Dalia gladly jumped on the bus and said "I want to go to!" God has prepared their hearts with an attitude which says "Here we are Lord SEND us!"
A Kamikaze for Christ is defined as an individual who is willing to invade the enemy's camp and defeat him with no regard to self. Their life is laid down with a reckless abandon for the cause of Christ. All for His Glory, All for His purpose, yielded to the Holy Ghost, full of the Word of God, diligent, watchful, and always wielding a ready sword.
Dana is available to address women's groups. Please make requests for her through our Lost Sheep Ministries.
Jerry serves as trip coordinator for our monthly trip to Piedras Negras, Mexico.
Jerry and his wife, Judy have a great heart for the children at the Casa Hogar Orphanage and along the Railroad track! Their heart reaches out every month to the men deported out of the U.S. and are given a respite of three (3) days at Casa del Perigrino! (House of Pilgrims) where they distribute caps and socks on a regular basis!
From this ministry, we see 10 to 49 people make professions of faith every month! He also coordinates receipt and transportation of all goods donated for Mexico.
