Global Ministries

2011-04-10 HBC Missions Conference AM Morning Service  102  webAfter twenty-seven years as Senior Pastor, including a four-year succession plan, Dr. Jerry Kroll has become Pastor Emeritus and refocused his ministry to help local churches fulfill the Great Commission.

His passion for evangelism, missions, and sound biblical teaching is evident in the legacy left at Heritage. Half of the missionaries supported by Heritage were called out of this local church. Heritage has a unique missions strategy that has ignited a fervor in the members to reach the lost locally and globally. It is Dr. Kroll’s passion to encourage other churches to have a vision and strategy for reaching the lost world. Linda, his wife of more than fifty years, is a gifted women’s Bible teacher and conference speaker.

The Krolls are available for:

• Missions Conferences670 web
Having traveled and ministered in more than seventy countries, Dr. Kroll brings a wealth of knowledge about the needs of the world and what God is doing globally.

• Missions Emphasis Sundays or Weekends
A Saturday night international banquet and missions Sunday emphasis provides a powerful tool to challenge believers to be sent or become a sender.

• Leading a World Missions Church Seminars
For an in-depth exposure to a unique missions strategy which could revolutionize the missions program of your church and other local churches, consider sponsoring a Saturday or weekday missions seminar for local pastors, missions committees and anyone interested in missions. These seminars have been conducted over many years in the United States and also in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Southeast Asia and the Far East.

Years of watching the Lord develop the unique missions program at Heritage led to Dr. Kroll’s desire to assist other pastoral staff and missions committees in evaluating their missions program. His expertise can be a valuable support to the further development of your missions strategy.

• Women’s Conferences
As an experienced women’s Bible study teacher and conference speaker, Linda is available for special women’s ministries.

• Resources Available

We have numerous missions resources (flags, artifacts, banners, missions artwork, pictures, missions games, etc.) available to enhance your missions conference or missions emphasis.

We had Dr. Kroll come to our church for a Missions Emphasis. He challenged and LAWMC 08 200encouraged our people to make world missions a priority in their lives. Dr. Kroll’s heart for missions, coupled with his ministry experience, makes him an excellent choice to encourage missions in your church. Our Mission Board gained valuable insights and ideas for our missions program from our meeting with Dr. Kroll. I would highly recommend him to any local church or ministry that is seeking someone to bring a heartfelt missions challenge to their people.

I have known Dr. Jerry Kroll for over 33 years now and I can say that he is one follower of Jesus Christ who has a heart for the lost and a passion to fulfill the Great Commission. His example as senior pastor at Heritage Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia, speaks volumes about his priorities in life, and I can also give testimony of the impact he has had for the cause of world missions in over 250 churches in México. You need to imitate what this man is doing.

IMG 2281 webWe can’t thank you enough for taking the time to come and bless us during our missions conference. We are very excited about the fruit coming from it. There is a greater and clearer sense of the importance of global missions in our church now. We, as a missions team, are enjoying developing strategies to keep the enthusiasm going and to focus our efforts as to how God would use our people and resources to further the gospel. The Lord used you mightily to stir our hearts and we are very grateful.
Ken Christianson, Missions Committee Chairman, First Baptist Church, Weymouth, MA

It has been my privilege to know Dr. and Mrs. Kroll for three decades, both as a fellow minister of the gospel as well as his being my pastor for twenty-five years. These dear servants of the Lord are just that, servants. I know of few pastors who have a heart for pastors and the local church as Dr. Kroll. His insight is exceptional and his knowledge of missions and how to maximize resources for global evangelism and discipleship are extraordinary.
The late Dr. Ralph W. Green, II, Word of Life Fellowship, Inc.
