Our Vision

Our vision at Love Everlasting Ministries is to see every man, woman and child to become eternally minded and Christ-exalting, knowing Him intimately as the Eternal Bridegroom.

Our Story

Started from humble beginnings, Love Everlasting began with a small team of men and women who wanted to reach women who were isolated and alone. As with all ministries, the Love Everlasting team didn’t imagine their ministry reaching women in Malawi, but God equipped us and said go, and so we did. Dr. Deb and her team now run a thriving ministry (Reap What You Sew Project) in Malawi, Africa for destitute and widowed women providing education so that they can provide for their families.

About Our Team

We are a team of men and women who share the same vision: to minister to all, showing them the love of Christ so that they can be transformed. We are blessed to have each one of these men and women part of our team and they are an integrate part of our mission and vision at Love Everlasting. We could not do it without them.
