This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Mission Statement: “Our goal is to be an instrument of God by leading people to Jesus Christ through our Testimony, Praise and Worship.”
Our Mission – Our mission is to go to God’s people and tell them that Jesus is coming back soon and that they need to follow His commands.
Mission Verse – 1 John 5:1-5 (NIV)
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Wake the Dead Ministries was founded in September 2015 by Gary Duffield and Bill Buddle. Gary and Bill met at the North East Men’s retreat held annually at Lake Champion in New York State. Both men, having a love and passion for God, people and music, decided to join forces and start a ministry using music.
