Most Christian men aren’t on a path to be all that God intended them to be. I have done my best, with God, to reach as many as I could. But what I could do has been limited by the simple fact that I can only be in one place at a time ministering to men. A critical truth that God showed me years ago was that in order for men to have real transformational change they had to be in a relational environment. I couldn’t do more. I had to find a way to get what God showed me into the hands of other leaders of men.
To Cindy and I, this is the most exciting and potentially powerful pinnacle in all of our years of ministry! In the years of ministering to tens of thousands of men, God has brought great results. Many of you reading this letter were impacted by OTI. Now, for the first time ever, we can distribute the material via DVD and online to men all around the world and guide them into what God intended for them. Men will get the lessons and watch them with their small groups of men and be changed. We are so excited about this! And we know you are too!
Pat and I have spent 100s if not more hours working on this so that it can be a blessing. We have spent many hours together recording, refining and readying the Men On Target curriculum. The goal is to help men Become the Man God Intended and it is now ready for distribution. God is already using this! We are experiencing tremendous results as reported by early adopters:
“When we started this we had no idea what we were in for…this is the best I have seen” - 25 year men’s ministry veteran
“The best thing I could be experiencing since getting out of prison…” - former inmate
Praise God for what He is doing in the lives of men through OTI! Thank you to those of you who have prayed and given to make all this possible.
As you may know, you can have the most wonderful product in the world but if people do not know about it—it stays on th
e shelf. We cannot afford to let that happen. We now have to get the word out through expanding our base and well thought out marketing–this is where we need your help.
We received, by the grace of God, $10,000.00 a month in free Google Ads through a grant. I am told that if we maximize these ads we will be able to secure an increase to $40,000.00 a month. This is an amazing gift from God but not without a cost. To manage all of this on the technical side is going to take expertise we do not have internally. Plus, it will require us to be at a higher level of maintenance for the website. An additional monthly support of $1500.00 is needed over and above regular operating expenses and other fundraising needs in order to make this happen. This is a very reasonable price and we are thankful the people that will be helping us with this also have a real heart to see the Men On Target curriculum get into the hands of leaders of men.
At this point we are basically stuck until we can raise the monthly support to release our creative, technical and marketing people to do their work. Your prayerful consideration at this time is very important—PLEASE pray and ask God if you may be someone He wants to use to help us. I trust Him completely and know He will answer your prayers.
If you are a church, please consider putting us on your mission budget for the next year. If you are an individual or part of a family, please pray about generously partnering with OTI. When you give to OTI, you are helping us reach more men all around the world.

If you have any questions or would like to talk with me personally, perhaps about OTI, or something going on in your life, please call my cell at 719-649-1000. I’d love to hear from you. You may remember that Cindy is in California right now (and doing very well!) and I am in Colorado while our house is waiting to sell.
Finally, I want to bless you. For your help in this effort, I want to give you two very special gifts. First, a free membership online to our full curriculum – this includes the new Men On Target series. This gives you the ability to download teachings and to share as you wish (currently a $120.00 item). I also want to sign you up for our 30-day email devotional on fear. This powerful daily ministry has helped thousands in overcoming fear—a special resource for these trying times. When you make a donation, it will automatically send us a note and then we will get these to you as soon as we can.
Cindy and I love you dearly and pray God’s richest blessings upon you and your family.
In His Service,
P.S. Here is another testimony!
The short time that I have been associated with OTI has changed my life dramatically. Not only have I accepted Christ as my savior and asked for His help in my life, but I have found fellowship with other men that I have not ever known before. I’m sharing things with these men that I have never shared with anyone before, and I really feel they are listening. Even more important is that they are sharing with me and I’m listening. God Bless. —P.D.
