Rick Whitmer, Senior Director of Hutchcraft Ministries (www.hutchcraft.com) highlights works of God done through the ministry he serves. Focused on proclaiming and living out the good news of Jesus, he is especially thankful for the ministry now seen in our nation’s “First People,” Native Americans.
Ron Hutchcraft – youth specialist and evangelist, frequently partnering with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association through the years — was once invited to minister on a Navajo Reservation in the southwest. Rick Whitmer reports that it was to impact the entire future of Hutchcraft Ministries. … and positively affect thousands of lives of Native Americans, the people who were here in North America when our ancestors arrived.
This relationship and vision was to lead to an annual Warriors Leadership Conference, conducted at Camp Windermere in Missouri. After attending these conferences, hundreds of Native Americans – young “warriors,” travel to other Native American reservations throughout the country, preaching, teaching, and living out the positive message of Jesus Christ to their own people!
Some in our St. Louis, Mo, area would remember Ron Hutchcraft as he spoke to and led youth groups in behalf of Billy Graham during the 1999 Greater St. Louis Area Crusade with Billy Graham.
His 4½ minute recorded radio stories are broadcast on approximately 1,000 radio stations.
New languages have been added to Hutchcraft Ministries worldwide … which includes Mandarin (Chinese), Romanian, and Spanish.
