NetCasters is dedicated to working for the Lord both in foreign fields and here in the United States.
In their overseas work, they have been deeply involved in the Philippines and are now expanding to work in many other places as well with the goal of building up existing congregations AND taking the Gospel where it has never been. The opportunities before them are great!
They also do a great deal of work in the States training soul winners through the Fishers of Men evangelism training course. The goal is to take the typical member of the church from sitting on a pew wishing he could do more, to actually talking to friends, neighbors, and relatives and setting up and conducting home Bible studies.
Tim and Rachel Wilkes have stepped out on faith, along with their son, Titus, and daughter, Abigail. They are praying and trusting the Lord will provide through our great brotherhood.
Tim began doing foreign mission work in 1996. In 2011, he resigned from full-time pulpit work to go into full-time missions. He and Rachel worked with Open Door Ministry for about three years before making the prayerful decision to use their experience to expand the Lord’s work in other places. During their time with ODM they learned a great deal about working in the mission field, leading campaigns, and had a part in the establishment of several new congregations of the Lord’s church. Now, they have prayerfully taken another step out on faith to accomplish more for the Cause of Christ and started NetCasters.
NetCasters is dedicated to winning souls and training soul winners. While they continue to work in the Philippines, they plan to take the knowledge they gained in the work there and apply it to working in other places around the world. Numerous opportunities are before them.
The strategy used for world missions is that which they learned much about while working with ODM. It is adopted from the greatest world missionary the church has ever seen - the apostle Paul! The focus is to establish new congregations in cities, towns, and villages where there previously had not been a congregation of the Lord’s church, and to build up previously established congregations.
The Fishers of Men course is a 12 week training course in person-to-person evangelism. There are 11 class meetings, plus a graduation. Homework and other assignments are to be completed outside of the class meetings.
Although the course is great for preachers and elders, it is designed for the typical member of the Lord’s church with little or no experience in teaching the Gospel. The FOM course involves daily Bible study as well as training in methods of reaching and teaching lost souls.Some Topics Covered:
Discovering and Developing a Person’s Interest in a Home Bible Study Assessing the “Heart Condition” of Prospects How, Where, and When to Get Appointments for Bible Studies Dealing with Questions and Objections Teaching Effectively Creating Godly Sorrow Persuading Scripturally.
The principles taught in this course will be helpful and effective with nearly any scriptural teaching tools. However, during the course, the Search for Truth series is used.
