HEART OF TITUS
MISSION & HISTORY.
We are ordinary people through whom God has done extraordinary things since 1996. In that year, the founders of our ministry took their first trip to minister overseas. Since that time we have traveled the world, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, with signs and wonders following.
Years ago nearly all of our trips were to Latin America and particularly to Ecuador and Peru. Revival was everywhere and we saw the power of God displayed in incredible ways. We ministered in many brand new churches and fell in love with the people and their leaders. Since that time our heart has been knit to churches everywhere. We long to see them continually so that we may impart to them whatever spiritual gifts the Lord gives us to help them with.
"I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong." Romans 1:11
Heart of Titus Ministries was born in 2005. Our co-founders, Tony Nardella and Pat McGuffin, had already been on many missions trips, and the birth of the ministry only accelerated the pace of travel. We began to send preaching teams every month. Because of the frequency of the trips, our team members grew close with many people, and deep relationships were formed, building bridges of love between different cultures and continents.
Our team members are excited to travel and usually pay their own expenses. They exemplify the heart of Paul and Titus (2 Cor.8:16-17 NIV) who were motivated by love for distant churches and found a way to get there on their own initiative.
"Thanks be to God, who put into the heart of Titus the same concern I have for you. For Titus not only welcomed our appeal, but he is coming to you with much enthusiasm and on his own initiative." 2 Corinthians 8:16-17
WHAT WE DO.
The local church is God's hands and feet to the world and Heart of Titus is passionate about serving His church. We host conferences for everyone, including pastors, couples, men, women, and teens. We also love to support local pastors by preaching and ministering in the gifts of the Spirit
PASTOR & CHURCH
Our Pastor and Church conferences are designed to come alongside Pastors who desire to see their churches fulfill the mission of bringing the Gospel to their communities through training and equipping in the knowledge of the Word, movement in the Holy Spirit, and the proper and orderly use of spiritual gifts in church meetings.
FEEDING THE POOR
Following the example of Jesus, we aim to provide for physical, as well as the spiritual. Due to our longstanding relationships with pastors and feeding centers, we can quickly respond to a humanitarian crisis, such as COVID-19, to provide funds, food and medical equipment.
MEN'S & WOMEN'S CONFERENCES
One of the great joys for our Heart of Titus teams is being able to preach in local churches around the world. The preaching ministry of Heart of Titus allows us to share the Word while building relationship with pastors and church members, worshiping together with them and partnering in ministry and prayer where they live.
Scripture teaches that every person who comes to Jesus for forgiveness of sin is also given a gift from the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 12). Many believers are not sure what gift they have or how to use it. Heart of Titus teams teach about the individual gifts of the Holy Spirit and the proper use of them for the purpose of edifying the church and glorifying God.
Men and women have unique needs and roles. Our conferences aim to highlight how both can serve, lead and grow in the Lord.
Heart of Titus believes that our youth are not only the next generation but are the present generation of the church. Most people who come to know Jesus do so by their 18th birthday; knowing this, Heart of Titus places heavy emphasis on Evangelism during our youth conferences. In addition, we train those who come to Jesus to identify their Spiritual Gifts and use them to reach their peers.
Marriage is the physical example of Jesus as the Groom and the Church being His bride. Heart of Titus teaches Biblical roles of responsibility in the marriage as well as the joys and pleasures of being husband and wife.
