Over the years, P23 has been involved in different aspects of ministry. My wife and I are missionaries that volunteer support to pastoral staff in New England. I'm also a volunteer chaplain, visiting inmates in New England jails and prisons.
Our primary purpose is to minister and give hope to the hopeless and the forgotten. This website exists to tell people what the Lord has done for me and to share our mission, to tell others the gospel message of Jesus Christ! Our heart's desire is to bring glory and honor to Him and see His kingdom advanced.
A Bangor Daily News article from May of 2012 entitled “Maine – the least-religious state in the nation” states that Maine has fewer residents who claim a religious affiliation than any other state in the union. Maine is the only one in the country in which less than 30 percent of the population belong to any religious denomination or independent Christian church. Keep in mind that they are including all religious affiliations in that 30 percent. Catholicism still dominates as the largest religious group in Maine. Other surveys have shown that New England — Maine in particular — is more secular than the rest of the nation. The article goes on to say that 8 out of every 1,000 people in Maine are Mormons. The International Pentecostal Holiness Church was the fastest growing denomination of the last decade with only 3 congregations and a total of 174 members. It is because of statistics like these that evangelicals and fundamentalists see Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire as very important, wide-open mission fields. (BDN article)
