Mighty God Ministry
In 1993, Mark and Mary Ann Hoobler founded Front Door Missions. Their earliest mission involvement was on the Navajo Indian Reservation where Mark completed several building projects and preached at camp meetings, revivals, and at churches of various denominations. Mary Ann organized bible schools for the Navajo children. In addition to a church and fellowship hall, a home for Navajo Pastor Joe Curly and his wife Lily were established. As the work on the reservation came to completion in 1997, the Lord opened a door to Africa.
The opportunities for building projects continued as did revivals and crusades in Kenya. A bible college, clinic, and orphanage were founded. Nine churches were planted and a home for the bible college director was built.
Soon after the work in Africa began, the ministry changed its name to Mighty God Ministries for 501-C3 purposes. The African ministry has expanded to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Madagascar, Malawi, and Uganda where 6 bible colleges are now operational. The International School of Ministry provides DVDs of bible lessons that have been translated to various languages. The bible colleges graduate around two hundred students every two years. In 2013, thirty of the two hundred graduates successfully founded new churches which are still thriving today.
Mighty God Ministries is funded by the generosity of local churches and individuals in the Ohio Valley and surrounding areas. The ministry exists to train, equip, and build up men and women for the purpose of shattering the darkness and shaking the ground for Jesus in Central East Africa.
