One of the primary ways Mary Jean disciples people is by coming alongside pastors and missionaries all over the world. This personal connection with church leaders continues to develop as she travels across international and denominational borders. Though Mary Jean has held many different positions and has ministered in more than 35 countries, those who know her will speak more of her character than of her accomplishments. They will tell of her intense dedication to the Lord, her close relationship with Him, and her desire to know His heart. They will tell you that Mary Jean knows the Word better than most people they’ve met, & not only does she know it, but she is able to teach it in a way that motivates people to delve deeper, deeper into the Word & into Jesus, who is the Living Word. And while she holds official titles of “Teacher” or “Missionary” you will more often hear her called a mentor and role model.

Statement of Faith

At Get the Word Out...

We exalt God’s Name (Father, Son and Spirit) and His Word above all other things. Psalm 138:2

We love God, and We love people because Jesus’ answer when asked which commandment was the greatest, was “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these” Mark 12:30-31

We make disciples, and We teach them to be disciplined students of Jesus. Matthew 28:18-20

We come alongside pastors and missionaries, and We exhort them to press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus has taken hold of them. Philippians 3:12

We fear God with undivided hearts and unshared affection, and We go with His message of Truth to the nations of the world. Psalm 86:11
