Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
I’m Chris Padgett, and I’m a 20 year Christian. My testimony is one that started with my salvation in July 1999. I was later called to preach and surrendered in 2000. I was an associate pastor and youth leader at a church where me and my wife taught a Sunday school class of 100 + “Tween-Agers”, we directed a large bus ministry - picking up hundreds of students all over our county, helped run a child care facility, Christian school and we maintained church property.
In 2007 God called me into the mission field and directed us to Colorado. I sat through that green light and because of circumstances out of my control, I passed the calling, going into law enforcement instead. I continued to be a minister, but also went into a different ministry of public service. That said, in May 2019 I received the liberty to pursue my missions calling again, and this time we intend on doing this in a modern manner - not quite conventional.
We currently operate a Twitter page (@valiantministry) for daily encouragement, along with a YouTube channel (Valiant Ministries) that is an “online outreach” for Sunday sermons and weekly lessons. Our focus is on the amazing people of Colorado, but is truly for all.
With all this, we truly have no idea when we will set sail for Colorado, but this campaign is to assist in our travels and preparations there. As of now, I have retired from a decade in law-enforcement and I am currently pursuing the ministry, while working in the private sector.
Before contributing, we ask that you visit our Twitter page and then our YouTube channel. Know what our mission, values and directions are. Then, if you’re inclined to give, it would be received with thanksgiving. Otherwise, we understand, and we certainly covet your prayers.
