My name is Dr. John Philip Spitsbergen. By the grace of our Lord , I am pleased to introduce myself to to you.
My son, Dr. Mark Spitsbergen is the Pastor of Abiding Place Ministries in San Diego; a ‘Soul Saving Station’, and participating member church of the ‘Great Awakening’ that is sweeping our nation and globe.
Mark sits with Dr. Rodney Howard-Brown, as a Board Member for Revival Ministries International and has been working with Brother Rodney for several years. In the fall of 2010, I was blessed with the opportunity to flow in “God’s River” and minister to the students at the River Bible Institute (RBI). It was a small gesture, as Dr. Rodney ministered twice at the church I pastored in Abilene Texas, a few years ago.
God called me to missionary/evangelism in 1950 and to full time ministry in 1952.
By our Lord’s grace, I have spent over fifty years preaching the Gospel; setting-up ‘Tent Revival Meetings’ and pastoring a few churches along the way. I have also been blessed with the opportunity to minister overseas with missionary work in Papa New Guinea, Egypt, Mexico and Haiti. To me, it’s all about “lost souls” and our relationship with our Lord Jesus.
As I travel throughout these United States, I am reaching out to Soul Saving Station Churches that have joined themselves to the ‘Great Awakening’, while trying to remain sensitive to the direction God’s Holy Spirit.
It would be a blessing to have an opportunity to meet with you while I’m in in your neighborhood and I certainly would be willing to provide you with references, prior to ministering in your church. Both Dr. Rodney Howard-Brown and Dr. Todd Holmes know me well, along with a number of well respected men and women of God.
Please feel free to reach out to me by my Facebook page or email – and I welcome an “old fashioned” phone call as well.
As a fellow laborer and partner in God’s ‘Great Awakening’ for the harvest of souls, I look forward to hearing from you!
Blessings In Christ,
