U-Turn World Ministries started out in the inner city of Fort Worth, Texas, reaching out to people that are bound by sin, overwhelmed by the consequences of their spiritual condition and rendering them incapable of getting out of mental, physical, and emotional poverty. Because U-Turn knows it is the spiritual condition that is the root of these issues, the heart of the ministry is to Reach the Lost at any Cost. A spiritual change is necessary for lasting, life-changing results. Therefore, U-Turn is teaching disciples of every age to evangelize people through the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified, everywhere they go.
There are no “walls” at U-Turn – as there are multiple U-Turn services occurring on any given weekend. The Cross of Jesus Christ is preached not only at the church building in Chico, but teams are also doing outreaches in downtown Fort Worth, and in nursing homes and rehabs in the area. The Prison Ministry is exploding, as it currently does approximately 120 services a year in the Texas State Prison system. U-Turn is truly a “worldwide” ministry, and has been to Haiti, India and Africa as well with the message of the Cross. Services can be viewed on the church’s website via live stream or anytime through the archives. A weekly television program is available every Saturday, reaching not only the DFW area, but also Houston and New York.
Through the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, people are brought to a true salvation experience. When the light of the gospel shines, a realization of man’s sinful condition brings people to the feet of Jesus. This broken-hearted repentance is the ONLY place where true salvation is found. And once the Word goes forth, the power of the Holy Spirit is confirmed with signs following. The lost are saved, the blind see, the deaf hear, and the lame walk. We see drug users and alcoholics totally set free from addiction! Broken hearts are healed and families restored. Letters from prisoners reveal that the Holy Spirit’s work continues long after the teams have gone.
Habbakuk 2:2 says to “Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that reads it.” Those who partner with U-Turn World Ministries help get the message of the cross of Jesus Christ into some of the darkest places in the world. The Lord has given us all a mandate in Mark 16:15 to “GO YE into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Not everybody can physically “GO” but your gift sowed into this ministry will help us GO in your place!
As you partner with this ministry, we encourage you to check us out online, come to the church, watch the TV program; see the fruit of the work that God is doing through U-Turn World Ministries. And then pray and see what the Holy Spirit would have you do to help us REACH THE LOST AT ANY COST. We believe that time is short! His return is very soon!!! Our favorite saying at U-Turn – “it’s GO TIME!!!” We THANK YOU for helping us GO!
In the Master’s Service,
Pastor Kevin Alexander
