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.

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.

Would you like to know how to be saved and go to heaven? 


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 hart 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.

Thanks,
Dr. Jed Snyder

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

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


Ministry Update

We are happy to report that in May God has provided sufficient income to purchase over $400 of DVDS and other materials for distribution. Thanks to all for praying and those of you who could give.

My (Jed’s) work in all areas of ministry is continuing. The preaching and teaching at Augusta Street Church has been a special ministry for these last couple of months. Thanks to the Lord for this open door, and to you for praying. I can also now let you know that I am in a position to accept a few new counseling clients. So if someone near Columbia desires to have a listening ear and some Biblical counsel, please let me know. My financial policy is to provide counseling free. If a donation is given, the first $25 of it will be accepted as “fee for service.” Anything given above that will be considered a gift to the ministry. Please do not stay away or refrain from sending others because there is financial difficulty. The folks who are under financial stress are the very ones who frequently need a listening ear and some guidance.

Other teaching opportunities are continuing. About a month ago it once again became my pleasure to disciple a man. We are working together through the Spiritual Life Studies which were originally designed by Pastor Dr. Harold Burchett. It has also been my pleasure to seek to be a positive mentor to a pastor with a new church here in Columbia. Again, as always, your prayers are a blessing.

Our personal financial support in the month of May was excellent. In June the income was nearly oppositely weak. So we know that God always supplies and are extremely grateful to those who give monthly, and want those who give occasionally to also know that their gifts come “just in time.”

We continue to praise our Lord for those who monitor literature distribution sites. Board members are helping in this way and Torrance Spigner is supervising the purchase and distribution of materials. Thanks to each one. Please keep in mind that we are on the lookout for unusual places to give our Christian materials. Christian owned business and professional offices are ideal. Thanks for letting us know if you locate a place and especially if you can monitor the supply of materials in that location.


July, 2014, Noreen Corey, Founder of Manos Felices (Happy Hands), a Christian School for the Deaf in Equatorial Guinea

Greetings from Upstate New York! It feels wonderful to be back home, close to family, friends, and my church family for the summer months. In June, Maxima’s (one of my second graders) mom died and we went to the home funeral and the cemetery to support her. It was heart - wrenching, she was only 37 and her youngest is three years old. The awesome thing is that she came to know the Lord, so the church was present as a testimony and light to God’s saving grace and power. Fortunately, Maxima was able to complete her exams and received her report card with her grandfather by her side. We finished the school year off with a field trip to Mbini to spend the day at the beach. In the last few years, a large bridge has been built and it was fun seeing it and taking photos near it. Our closing program went well with most of the parents in attendance to watch the children sing, dance, recite poetry and riddles, participate in dramas and finally receive their report card. It was a special day for me since our guest speaker was the very same national Youth with a Mission director that invited me initially to Equatorial Guinea in 2005, who has recently returned with family from Gabon where they were missionaries. We are very grateful for all of God’s blessings that He has poured down on us this past year.

Please continue to pray for us.

For the health and safety of each student and staff member.

For sufficient funds to buy summer inventory, for my travel expenses, and for the operating costs for 2014-2015,

For parents and family members to be set free from the traditional beliefs that keep them in spiritual darkness, that they may embrace the truth of God’s Word and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Your interest, prayer support and financial support is essential to our work with the Deaf in Bata, E.Q. Don’t hesitate to contact me directly via email nocorey@yahoo.com if you would like to become more involved. God Bless!

Philippine Report – Please Read and Pray

Timothy has been sick this week with viral mouth sores. I just took his 3year old cousin to the hospital for the same problem. It is difficult for him to eat or drink due to the pain.

I have been working with the church members in setting up bylaws etc. for the church. The youth are also working on a list of bylaws.

I plan to attend several training programs for NACPhil this month. This can give me government authority to teach spiritual values to police, government officials etc... during official regular meetings and in schools.

Our washing machine broke this week and will need to be replaced.
