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 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.

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

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.

Tidbits:

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!



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.
