Mission 25.40 Partnership
I am thrilled to share, after much prayer, that I have partnered with Nathan and Janelle Buckman to support their ministry, Mission 25.40 (Matthew 25:40).
10% of my sales will go to support their ministry.
The personal story of God’s redemption in Nathan’s life led him into the area of addiction recovery coaching, discipleship, and personal mentorship. Leading biblically based recovery coaching for those who desire to live in freedom from the dominion of sin is a regular element of his ministry.
Janelle actively leads group and individual coaching in person and virtually, via Zoom, for wives of husbands who are addicts.
“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40
The Lord has called Nathan to:
1. Preach the Word
2. Teach the Truth to God’s people
3. Lead God’s people in worship
4. Tend the flock as a caring under-shepherd
5. Mobilize the church for Christian witness and service
Another way that Nathan, who is a seminary professor, carries out his calling, is by teaching seminary courses to inmates in Florida prisons. Mission 25.40 is unique, because they minister to the addict. They essentially reach the addict before he ends up in prison. Graduates of seminary in prison have a zero percent recidivism rate. This means that they do not go back to prison once released. Through theological training they find true freedom from the bondage of sin. The national average for the general population that does not go through the seminary course is 80%.
Not only does he teach classes in person, he also has a video recording studio in his home where him and other seminary MINTS professors record seminary course teachings to be used in prisons and internationally on YouTube. Nathan also teaches internationally through Zoom to Bolivia and Venezuela. The classes in Spanish are to church leaders, church planters, and missionaries.
Mission 25.40 ministers under the umbrella of MINTS (Miami International Seminary) and MNA (Mission to North America). MINTS and MNA are partners in prison ministry. MINTS has prison seminary courses in 16 prisons in Florida, one each in Georgia, Illinois, and South Carolina. At the latest count, MINTS has 10,000 students in 350 study centers in 76 countries.
