Year after year, God has used generous people to help fund and fuel the ministry efforts of Battle Cry. Battle Cry Ministries is a faith based, 501 C3 ministry, which has operated on a conservative budget for the past eleven years. We have been richly blessed by the selfless hearts of our donors and take seriously the responsibility of Godly stewardship with every penny that comes our way. We are set up to receive contributions in one of two ways, by check (payable to BCM) to our mailing address or through our secured online PayPal account. This page has been specifically established to allow funds to be designated for the salary and ministry expenses of Corey Schmitt. If you send in a payment through the mail, please write 'Corey' in the memo. If you send a payment through PayPal, please enter 'Corey' in the special instructions module.
A word from Corey...
I grew up going to church every Sunday doing the “right things”, but it wasn’t until I went to college that I understood that walking with Jesus was more than attending a weekly meeting. I realized that grace is an undeserved gift; that I don’t have to earn it but rather must grasp the gift through faith. I understood the truths of the gospel fully through being mentored and started growing in my faith, being personally challenged and encouraged to take tangible steps of obedience. I realized over the next couple years that the call to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” wasn’t a commandment that was already fulfilled, but that we are still called to accomplish. Discipleship was how I came to grasp the truths of the Gospel and learn what it meant to live a spirit filled life.
My desire is to follow Jesus’ model of discipleship, multiplying Christ followers by making disciples who make disciples. My passion is for people to know that God loves them more than they could ever imagine and that He desires for them to know Him more than they could ever hope.
I have been doing ministry off and on with Homer and Robin for a few years, and have watched their zeal for Jesus transform lives of many, including myself. I know that the goal for BCM has alsways been to develop full followers of Christ and to train the church to get out of the building, in order to reach the lost world with the power of the gospel. My life was changed by being called out of my slumber; out of the comfort of the pew and into authentic relationship with Christ. With the goal of igniting passion in the American Church and bringing Jesus within arm’s reach off all people, I know serving God through Battle Cry Ministires is the call He has burned in my heart.
I am graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Recreational Administration (leadership and event planning) from Texas State University in May. I have a fiancé named Kaitlyn Carter who is going to UT medical branch for her BSRN; we are set to be married in October 2017. We met while I was helping to leading a group of Greek (fraternity and sorority) students to Patagonia, Chile for a mission trip in 2015 and I look forward to serving His kingdom with her for the years to come.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration in partnering with us financially. We are confident that the sacrifical support of many will move us forward into this exciting chaper of our lives. May God bless you and to Him be all the glory!
