About our Ministry

Jesus Every Day Ministries is lead by Jed Snyder, long time pastor, counselor, teacher, writer and missions enthusiast.

Jed has led churches for over thirty years, has counseled many people some of whom were seriously wounded inwardly, has traveled on short term missions trips, teaching and encouraging local people as well as the missionaries and other teachers.

Having grown up as a missionary “kid” in Bolivia, he experienced cross-cultural life gaining a deep appreciation for differences while learning to accept the people as having similar spiritual and emotional needs as his own.  As a husband, father and grandfather he has been able to contribute while continually learning.  God has given him a passion to share His Word with others personally, in small groups and from many different pulpits.


The mission of Jesus Every Day Ministries, Inc. (J.E.D. Ministries) is to promote the Christian faith and the gospel of Jesus Christ by activities including but not limited to preaching, teaching, providing pastoral counseling, ministering to the spiritually lost and needy, providing worship activities and the creation and distribution of Christian materials.

What Kind Of Tongue Do You Have? - Johnny Hunton

The following little poem expresses the desires of Jesus Every Day Ministries, Inc.

So Send I You - Margaret Clarkson

So send I you to labour unrewarded
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown
To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing
So send I you to toil for Me alone

So send I you to bind the bruised and broken
Over wandering souls to work, to weep, to wake
To bear the burdens of a world a-weary
So send I you to suffer for My sake

So send I you to loneliness and longing
With heart a-hungering for the loved and known
Forsaking kin and kindred, friend and dear one
So send I you to know My love alone

So send I you to leave your life's ambition
To die to dear desire, self-will resign
To labour long, and love where men revile you
So send I you to lose your life in Mine

So send I you to hearts made hard by hatred
To eyes made blind because they will not see
To spend, though it be blood to spend and spare not
So send I you to taste of Calvary

"As the Father hath sent me, so send I you"

Can You Help?

We want to make a comprehensive list of service agencies (especially Christian ones) in the Midlands of South Carolina. Will you email me contact information so I can get in touch with such organizations? I have a questionnaire to send them to evaluate their trustworthiness for being listed.

Things Displeasing to God

by Johnny Hunton

I have given a study from Matthew regarding the things pleasing to god from Matthew. Here is a list of things that displease God.


What is Failure?

"Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be." - John Wooden

For those who may not know, John Wooden was one of the most successful basketball coaches in university history. He knew about change. He coached hundreds of ball players to change so they could function better both personally and for the team.


How should I witness to my coworkers?

When we interact with people on a daily basis, we have many opportunities for sharing our faith. First, be sure you are respectful to your employer and set a good example in your work ethic by working “as to the Lord” (Col. 3:23). When others around you grumble and complain, if you have a calm, forgiving, steadfast spirit, it will make an impression. As you respond in a Christ-like way to angry coworkers and stressful circumstances, people will see a difference in your life.

If your boss forbids it, don’t witness on work time. Instead, keep a pile of Million Dollar Bills or some other tract on your desk but don’t give them out. If someone asks for one, let them take it. Displaying a favorite Scripture or a devotional calendar, or quietly reading your Bible during lunchtime, may prompt others to inquire about your faith.

To not infringe on your employer’s time, invite unsaved coworkers out to lunch (not the opposite sex) and witness to them there. Just ask for their thoughts on what happens after death. That will let you know if they are open to the gospel. If you detect contention, apologize and instead use closet prayer. Make a list of workers and uphold them before God, asking for divine openings.

In the meantime, let your love shine. Always be friendly and courteous, and show genuine interest in your coworkers’ lives. Share their joys and sorrows by congratulating them in their good times and offering to pray for them in their bad times. Be sure you do pray for them, then follow up by asking them about the situation you prayed for. They will be moved by your concern. If coworkers are discussing what they did during the previous weekend, you can share your excitement about attending church services or a special church event. Ask about their plans for celebrating Christmas or Easter; be nonjudgmental of their answer, and be ready to explain why you celebrate as you do.

Bringing home-baked goods or leaving a small gift with a note on a coworker’s desk can sometimes have a greater impact than a thousand eloquent sermons. We can show our faith by our works. Others may not like a tree of righteousness, but they cannot help but like its fruit.

For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men. 1 Peter 2:15

Off to Peru

An invitation to teach at a new Christian university in Lima, Peru was recently accepted by Jed Snyder. He will be teaching the Book of Hebrews from April 6th to 11th. The schedule is planned to be rather intensive, 28 hours in six days. These students will attend classes four hours each evening and about eight hours on Saturday. Please pray for them when you pray for Dr. Jed.

It has been a blessing to see the funds provided for this trip. At the time of this writing the majority of the money has been committed. Please praise our Lord Jesus Christ for the opportunity, the funds and in anticipation of his blessing on both the teacher and students. If others are desirous of helping with the funds they can send gifts to Jesus Every Day Ministries, Inc., P. O. Box 4332, Irmo, SC 29063 All gifts can be given tax deductible receipts.

Please pray for Betty and thank the Lord for family and neighbors who will be with her in Jed’s absence.

We won the $500 prize from Daybreak Adult Care Services.

Praise the Lord and thanks to each one who voted.

Jed Snyder, President of Jesus Every Day Ministries & Noreen Corey, Missionary in Equatorial Guinea

Ministry Update - Widely Scattered, But Same Work

Ken and Lilia Rose work in the Philippines. Noreen Corey works in Equatorial Guinea on the continent of Africa and Jed and Betty work in the United States on the continent of North America. It is a great source of encouragement to know that your prayers are touching such widely scattered areas of the world. Your financial gifts help to keep us all giving out the same glorious message; Jesus Christ, God the Son, is “the way, the truth, and the life.” All who trust him as Savior will one day be united in heaven enjoying him, the other saints, and the angelic host forever.

Ken has written of their own situation describing the need for tires for their multi-purpose vehicle so vital to carrying people and supplies. He has additionally described the need for roofing for their home in addition to the usual needs for their growing young children of school supplies, clothing and health care. Please ask our gracious Father in heaven to provide these needs in ways that will help the Rose family and bring glory to Christ among the people.

Noreen has written of the needs of the deaf children in her school. She has mentioned the need for qualified, Christian staff to serve as instructors and other care givers. All of these people require the same things that each of us needs, food, shelter, clothing, healthcare and the less obvious, but equally important concerns of spiritual and emotional support.

Thank you for helping these precious servants of Jesus Christ as you also help Betty and me in our efforts to serve others as we seek to serve our Lord. The Interim Pastoral work at Augusta Street Church in West Columbia seems to be progressing well. Pray, please that the Lord will fill and empower me and all who teach and lead. Also uphold the outreach efforts being made to grow the church family numerically. The teaching in the Central Midlands Transitional Retreat for homeless veterans also is a challenge that appears to be bearing fruit. The weekly men’s Bible study is a very precious time of sharing and learn for each of us men who attend. My book publishing agent requests prayer as she seeks publishers for me and for other authors whom she represents. I also am writing an inspirational column that is offered for publication in several places on a weekly basis.

God is at work and you are part of it. Your gifts are a very sweet offering to God for us.

Are You Tested or Tempted?

Let’s think about the matter of testing for a few minutes. Distinguish between being tempted and being tested or tried. The former word conveys the idea of appealing to the worst part of man, with the wish that he will yield and do wrong. Testing is an appeal to the better part of man, with the desire that he will stand. Temptation says, 'Do this pleasant thing; do not be hindered by the fact that it is wrong.' Trial or proving says, 'Do this right and noble thing; do not be hindered by the fact that it is painful.' The one is a sweet, beguiling melody, breathing soft indulgence and relaxation over the soul; the other is a call to high achievements.

Satan tempts us to bring out the worst in us; God tests us to bring out the best in us.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, {3} because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. {4} Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything James 1:2 4.

As we daily go about living, we will be both tempted and tested. A good teacher always tests students to see if they have learned. An ungodly influence seeks to lead us astray into sin.

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

November, 2014, Noreen Corey, Prayer Request

Special Note: The day after writing a newsletter, the school bus had an accident with 11 students aboard; a game changer. Thank God all the students are home and will recover. Ubaldo, the driver remains hospitalized recovering from surgery. Please pray for him. The front of the bus is totaled; we are waiting for an estimate for repair. The costs will be out of range of our current budget. Praying for provision of transport, so school can continue. What I wrote before the accident still holds true, and our hope for the future stands firm!

It is time for some news from Equatorial Guinea. As always, I landed in country ready to “run the race set before me.” The urge for home improvements was strong so with the permission of the pastor of the mission where I live, I spent the rent money for Sept. /Oct. on renovations. A new cement floor along with a new pane window, and coat of paint for Juan Capo’s dining room area.. This has been my office space during enrollment weeks. Painted the outside of the house and a few areas on the inside in my part of the house. At the same time, I shopped for furniture for the school and prepared for the start of school with a dedication held on Oct. 15th..

Our new preschool students include two hearing children from Biafra, where the school is located. Teodoro Engonga Oyana is 5 years old and his cousin, Benita Bindang Esono is 6 years old. We are happy to have them with us. The Deaf students are Milagrosa Biye Bang Mangue, 4 years old, Damaso Sima Engonga is 5 years old, Jose Enem Micha is 6 years old , Santiago Esono Aba Mekina is 3 years old and Vitor Owono Owono Ebibie is 5 years old. Raquel is 9 years old and she recently spent a day with us, if she does not mind being with the little ones we will enroll her.

Sadly, I had to let five older students go since there was no way to serve them. They are attending a Christian private school where Luzma, the Mexican missionary that was with us for a year is working. She is providing tutoring for them when she is not busy with her other teaching responsibilities. The students are Marcelina Obono, Jose Luis Inako, Soledad Obono, Maximiliano Obiang and Epigminio Nzang. * If you are prayer sponsoring any of the above, please continue to pray for them. We hope that this is only a temporary arrangement.

Our new staff members include Divina, who was with us in another position last year – she is the classroom assistant for Preschool I. Rosalinda, a Deaf youth that was with us before is now back and is going to be the second grade teacher.


Venancia spent more than month in the Dominican Republic at a Christian Deaf school founded by Dana Alexander to train with a program called Pattern Language. Hess continues to finance these teacher training trips/experiences outside Africa.

Jemima Echia, one of our very first students is in Spain attending school.

No signs of Ebola!

Greetings from the Philippines

This rainy season we have had a lot of typhoons causing wind and very heavy rain. The constant rains have made access to our house and the church difficult turning the roads into deep mud. It is a 4WD challenge to take the kids to school, go shopping or to church. Last week Daniel fell off the motorbike and landed in the mud on his way to school. He had to come home and change his uniform before heading back to school.

The vehicles have had lots of mechanical problems. Thanks to several unexpected gifts last month we were able to get them running again. I had a local workshop rebuild one part I needed for our van from the steel of a worn out motorcycle brake shoe that was melted down with a blow torch.

Thanks also to recent financial assistance we were able to buy some tin and repair a big leak in our kitchen roof. I was also able to fix several other leaks in the roof that have been causing a lot of problems for the past several months.

Our sheep had twin lambs last week and they are both healthy and very cute.

This week is the fiesta for our barangay of Santo Nino. The fiesta it a big party for the whole community in honor of the idol of Santo Nino. Most families have family reunions during this time. Almost every home here has an idol of the Santo Nino on display in the home and during this time they bring it out and dance with it so it will make them rich and grant them wishes. Every family cooks a feast to share with neighbors and friends as a sacrifice to the Santo Nino. The feast is normally a roast pig and lots of rum or beer. Due to the fatty food and gluttony many people get sick. The rum causes a lot of road accidents, medical emergencies, fights, murders, rape etc... I have heard news of several deaths this week. The Fiesta Disco went all night and was very loud where we live 2 miles away.

The Pope is visiting the Philippines this week and the whole country has stopped for this event. The airport was closed during his arrival, the trains stopped running, school was canceled in Manila, and all TV stations are broadcasting his visit. Many people have been injured just trying to see him.

The black Nazarene procession in Manila last week is normally one of the worst for death and injury as people stampede to touch the idol to receive favors as it passes.

On Sunday I preached on avoiding temptations. At the prayer meeting last night we discussed the current issues and biblical principles about idolatry and honoring men above God.

Please continue to pray for the Lords work here and for our financial situation.

We have so much freedom and opportunity to share and teach the Bible here it is sad that we don't have more workers. People are hungry for the word but mostly being given a poor substitute.

Mathew 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Thank you for your constant prayers,
Ken, Lilia, James, Daniel, and Timothy Rose
