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

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

Bolivia

On August 5th Jed Snyder, President of Jesus Every Day Ministries, will once again be traveling to Bolivia, South America to teach God’s Word.  The Lord has given him several previous opportunities to travel to the land of the Trinitario peoples in San Lorenzo de Moxos.  His trip will be completed on August 14th assuming that everything happens according to plan.

Joe and Elna Snyder, Jed’s older brother with his wife, will also return to the country where they served as missionaries for 40 years.  He will interpret for Jed during the ten teaching sessions that are planned.

This group of people had the Gospel brought to them about fifty years ago.  Joe and Jed’s  father, Horace Snyder, took his teenage son, Joe, with him as they began to learn the language, share God’s loving plan of salvation and establish a church in the village.  It now has approximately 1000 inhabitants until festival when the people from the country enlarge the numbers significantly.  It will be during this annual festival that the church will have their conference.  Jed is invited to be the teacher.

We received all the remaining needed funds for the upcoming trip to Bolivia. Praise the Lord. If you were planning to give, please don’t or if you like the gift can be redirected either for personal support or for purchasing literature.

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


Summer, 2015, Noreen Corey

Our goal of furnishing the new facility is almost complete.  We purchased furniture for the school´s reception area with A. Hess money that we had remaining in last year´s fiscal budget and I have asked for some of this year´s budget to pay for wooden furniture made locally for desks for our students that have outgrown existing desks and tables, book shelving in the library and a few other misc. pieces of furniture needed.  This includes iron bars to secure the windows and door of the computer room. 

The remaining budget from Hess will be used for teacher training.  We are hoping that three of the contracted teachers will be able to enroll in a higher education state program to further their Spanish and academic skills to prepare them further to manage the ministry more effectively. 

The fencing around the school has been started and that is being funded again by the First Lady of the Nation. 

Despite the bus accident in November we were able to make advances in the academic progress of the students.  They will complete the grade level when we return in the fall.  In the last part of the year, the preschoolers learned about the Creation and I taught the road map to Heaven and what will Heaven be like to the Primary students.

Urgent prayer requests: 

A safe arrival for Amadu, our caretaker who returned several months ago to his country of Burkina Faso to obtain a passport and bring his wife back to E.G.  Just before leaving country I learned that they had been picked up in Cameroon on their return trip to us and put in jail since they did not have a legal document required. 

A qualified teacher for the 4th grade students, and a national to fill the teacher in training position. 

A quick recovery for my mom who recently suffered a heart attack and is in rehab, that she will be able to return home to my sister´s house to live.

Our need for financial provision to pay off a short fall that the project experienced this year due to the bus accident. 

Our African miracles: 

I stand amazed how much God cares for me personally and for Manos Felices in E.G. Time and time again He proves Himself faithful.  Here are a few examples of His protection and provision: 

That the kids on the bus the day of the accident were not hurt badly, and especially that not one of them had taken the passenger seat near the driver where they would have been in grave danger!  We are grateful for the survival of the driver, as he received the majority of the impact, and had to have an operation and spent more than a month in the hospital.    

A local official lent out his bus and driver to us without expense to us,  except for the cost of gasoline.  If you were more familiar with the culture and society you would understand more fully that this was truly something handed to us by the Lord.  Also, when we most needed funds to keep the repairs going on the bus a missionary handed me approximately $1000.00 in the local currency. 

I have been renting the missionary house in a church mission for more than four years,  and my rent has stayed steady at 150 CFAS,  approximately $300.00, which is very low rent!  The house is right in the center of the city, it is safe and spacious with a sizable yard that I enjoy tremendously. 

An increase in my monthly support just because we needed it. Again I would like to express my gratitude to JED Ministries for your support and services provided that we may continue to do what God has called us to do in E.G.

Respectfully submitted, Noreen


Greetings from the Philippines

We just attended James High School Graduation this week. Daniel also graduated from Primary School. The youth from our church have been practicing this week at our house to play for several Easter programs.

I am continuing the program of teaching Christian Moral Values focusing on the family to the poor in the remote barangay areas around Talibon.
This week our church distributed 50 gift boxes from Samaritan's Purse to children from poor families.

I took 3 members of our church to the Samaritan's Purse Teacher training in Ubay several months ago so we could participate in this program. We will run a 12 week Bible program for the children who received the boxes and the children that complete the program with receive a Bible.

Last year 2 of the young people in our church (Alma & Erlinda) graduated from High School. Both students were hoping to study education and become teachers. We found a partial sponsor for Erlinda last year to help with her college tuition. The school is not far from her home and her mother helps her with the other expenses. Alma started in college last year but her family could not afford to pay the fees at the end of the 1st term so she dropped out. She has been working in various jobs this year earning about $4 per day. If we can find sponsors for these students this year they will be able to continue their education to break the cycle of poverty.

This year 4 of the young people in our church (James, Shasha , Jubile & Joyjoy) have graduated High School and face the same problems. To fully support one student in college would cost about $3500 per year. Including the students from last year we now need 6 sponsor-ships to help these students achieve their dream of having an education. Without a college education a person can earn about $120 per month working 7 days a week. With a college education and passing the board exam a person can earn about $500 per month as a school teacher or in other professional occupation. A college education and a year of experience can qualify a person to apply for work in another country greatly increasing the income potential.

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
