Port Charlotte Full Gospel Business Mens Fellowship International

Jerry Schmidt 3-15-2011 FGBMFI Port Charlotte FL

From the bar stool to the Bible school... Thanks to a Holy Ghost prayer warrior Grandmother. The Lord had said to her one day, "Out of all your grandchildren, this one will serve Me."

Hear how God got hold of him. While going through rehab he'd hear her speak of her friends Demos Shakarian, founder of FGBMFI, and Oral Roberts. Through prayer and the encouragement of a local Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship, Jerry went to Rhema Bible Training Center and then to Victory World Missions Training Center. He met his wife, Linda, in Florida at Christian Retreat in Bradenton. Having the same vision for establishing bible schools, they married and went to Haiti together.

Schmidt International Ministries is under the umbrella covering of Victory Christian Center in Tulsa and Gospel Crusade International. Jerry worked with Victory Christian Center for the past 14 years as a teacher, director in Haiti and Regional Coordinator of International Victory Bible Institutes throughout the Caribbean. Thousands of students have graduated and are in the five fold ministry, going on to birth churches, new schools and orphanages. Students are taught to be led by the Holy Spirit, to live by faith that God will supply all their needs, and the importance of duplicating themselves.

"And the things that you heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." II Timothy 2:2

Hear Jerry's whole story of the chain of events from a life without purpose or direction to the plan God had for his life with the help of a praying grandma, God's divine intervention, and help and encouragement from the brothers of a FGBMFI chapter.
