The Next 40 Years

40 yearsHappy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps truth forever, who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. —Psalm 146:5-7

Next month, Outpost Ministries will celebrate its 40th anniversary! For forty years, Outpost has not wavered in proclaiming the truth that Jesus Christ has life-changing power.

In 1976, Robbi Kenney and a few others founded Outpost in the basement of Love Lines, a crisis phone counseling ministry. The name Outpost was chosen for a very specific reason: it would be the first line of defense against the enemy’s sneak attacks.  We now see the prophetic nature of our name. For 40 years, we have fought the good fight in the midst of an ever-changing society. We have been an Outpost of hope to many wounded souls.

God was faithful to Outpost in the early years. He released valuable tools to minister healing to the same-sex-attracted struggler. We were led to the place where we all find healing: the cross. The cross of Jesus Christ is enough for all sin. Healing through the cross is available for all who choose to repent.

In the past 40 years, many lives have been transformed because of the Holy Spirit’s work here. Praise the Lord, I am one of those transformed lives!

I am looking forward to the next 40 years with great anticipation. God is on the move. Lives continue to change. His Kingdom is advancing. Thank you for your prayers and financial partnership throughout the years. We could not have persisted without your vital contribution to this ministry.
