Testimonies From Other Ministries

To Youth Leaders Fed Up With Empty Chairs and Filling Water Balloons:
What a great conference! I
just came from a Youth Cell Conference hosted by our church. Ted Stump
from High Gear Publishing presented a full course of youth cell
information. I believe more than half of our crowd were high school
students. Not only can Ted teach the cell concepts and philosophy, but
he can also light a fire under a teenager to go ahead and lead.
Listening to Ted and reading his manual on student cell groups has
opened my eyes to a great big world of lost souls that can only be won
by teens themselves. The conference was a game plan and pep rally and
our students can finally believe that greater is He is in them!
||Walnut Hills Community Church|
To all who are seeking to win High School students to Christ,
We just completed a two day training conference led by Ted Stump on student led evangelistic teen cell groups.
We learned a boatload of
practical how to's from a man who is on the cutting edge and does it
successfully day in and day out. Ted is really in touch with high
schoolers of the 90's, and sensitive to the Holy Spirit. His passion
for the lost has compelled him beyond "entertainment evangelism" to a
reproducing cell model that I believe has the potential to sweep the
world and produce godly, dynamic leaders among teens.
If you believe in the cell church, and you have teens, you would do well to get your hands on Ted Stump.
Yours for the Great Commission,
||Hosanna Lutheran Church|
It is with great pleasure that
I recommend Ted Stump to you for consultation on student-led home
groups. I recently brought Ted to our church to share with High School
students and key adults the vision and "how to's" of implementing this
biblical approach to ministry. The seminar was extremely uplifting and
informative. Ted shares with passion and zeal this concept of providing
teens an atmosphere of grace which enables them to share what is on
My students are
challenged with the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of
their friends by sharing in home groups. I know that I and our Senior
High students will never be the same. To God we give much thanks for
Ted's heart and the hope he has restored in our ministry! I look
forward to bringing Ted back again soon.
With His POWER!
||Great Commission Ministries|
As a Regional Director for
Great Commission Ministries, I work with over 100 affiliated churches
and ministries throughout the world, all of which are committed to
evangelism and discipleship in a small group context. Recently, Ted
Stump conducted a seminar for our Columbus, Ohio churches, in which
over 20 teen staff leaders were trained to reach high school students
through evangelistic cell groups. The seminar was fantastic. Each of
the leaders left the time inspired to reach teens for Jesus Christ --
and more significantly, they were given a detailed, step by step plan
to accomplish the task through a simple and transferable approach
developed by Ted.
If you have a passion for equipping teens to reach teens with the gospel of Jesus Christ, see Ted Stump!
Yours In Christ,
Director of Church Ministries
||Word of Grace Church|
Greetings! I want to thank
you for the excellent leadership you are giving us through the process
of implementing Student Led Cell Groups in our student ministry. The
training seminar on Saturday was not only informative, but anointed of
God. The feedback I have received from parents is overwhelmingly
positive. In fact, one mother told me how difficult it is to keep her
daughter's attention for any kind of presentation. However, her
daughter told her of how absolutely much she enjoyed the whole day, and
that the entire seminar kept her glued to her chair with her eyes, mind
and heart wide open.
We are successfully
implementing student-led cell groups and we know that the Holy Spirit
has led us in our relationship with you and High Impact Ministries. We
are expecting to keep our consultative relationship with you and trust
that God will show us specifically the most effective format to
accomplish our working relationship.
This is the single most
exciting thing that God has done in the three years I have been Student
Minister at Word of Grace Church. Our church is growing and now is
starting a 6th weekend service, with over 3,000 in attendance over each
weekend, praise God. As we, as a church, move toward small groups, I am
confident that God has provided the link for our youth ministry to
pursue small groups as well.
We believe in the whole
concept of student led cell groups as the foundation of our ministry.
We raise God for your experience, your gifts and your materials that
you have written.
We look forward to our continued relationship for the glory of our Lord Jesus!
With Thanks in Jesus,
Minister to Students
||World Team Canada|
Thank you for your recent
trip to Toronto and facilitating the "Youth Cells" Conference. All of
the 25 churches present were greatly blessed and challenged for this
new paradigm of Youth Ministries.
The response from the
youth was positive and enthusiastic to launch an effective cell
ministry that can penetrate all of the various sub cultures found in
the High Schools.
Your experience, knowledge and humour was greatly appreciated.
We look forward to being
able to set up similar conferences across Canada and see a great
movement powered by the Holy Spirit effectively reach today's young
