How We Got Started
In 2005 The Lord gave bishop Wayne Boosahda the idea of forming an ecumenical missionary society of clergy and laity that would focus on the great task of re-evangelizing the people of our growing post-Christian culture. It would be modeled after the societies of the ancient Irish Christian missionaries and the evangelical mission societies of the 19th century.
In 2021 bishop Wayne consecrated Fr. Jon Aamodt as a missionary bishop. Jon was commissioned to work across denominational lines and help light fires of revival, help raise up new leaders for this new apostolic (missionary) age, and help equip the people of the Church for living in this new post-Christian, apostolic (missionary) age.
In response to his commission, Fr. Jon developed the Hope on THE WAY ministries, with the "hope" that it would be humbly used to bless the Body of Christ and expand the Kingdom of God.
The Problem & The Promise
no longer exists"
Pope Francis 2019
The Problem: The age of Christendom is over. The Church and the teachings of the Christian faith no longer hold places of prominence in our rapidly growing "post-Christian" culture.
Many folks have a "Christian memory" but neither the Church, nor the Christian faith, have little perceived relevance in the lives of multitudes of secular people.
The Promise: There's an old saying "Every cloud has a silver lining". In the light of the collapse of Christendom in Western culture, it's becoming harder to be a nominal Christian. In fact, the "cancel culture" is coming after the faithful Church. Following Christ is now "counter cultural". The faithful Church is now the radical Church.
This is the promise that Christ gave to His Church: “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. " ".... make disciples... teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Mk. 16:15, Mt. 28:19-20).
The Age of Christendom has ended and we have begun a new apostolic (missionary) age, and like the early Church, Christ is calling us to radical commitment and missional living.
Even so, in this time of upheaval, people are searching for HOPE and TRUTH, and the WAY to LIFE (Jn. 14). Jesus and His Church are who they need most.
Bold Proclamation. "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus." Acts 4:13
Spiritual Formation with an Emphasis on Commitment and Christlikeness. "... my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!" Galatians 4:19.
Welcoming all the Ministry of Jesus as Portrayed in the Life of Christ and the Early Church
Spirit Filled Ministry
"...by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God—so that from Jerusalem and all the way around to Illyricum I have fulfilled the ministry of the gospel of Christ." Ro. 15:19
