What is EmpowerOne Ministries? Glad you asked!
EmpowerOne is a Christ-Centered ministry for those who desire to discover hope, peace, and freedom.
We are raising funds for our veteran program conferences. Our focus will be empowering veterans who have feelings of hopelessness due to the loss of jobs, homelessness, mental illness, or drug addiction.
Q & A with Lead Pastor Rolando Ramos III
Why do you have such a heart for Veterans?
Veterans die for the country and they sacrifice their lives and all that they have of themselves to save people. They leave wives and husbands and children behind…they are giving up their life to save us all.
A lot of veterans are homeless and when I was eight years old I saw a homeless man standing in the middle of the street. I was with my father and in my hand was ten dollars of pennies rolled up in a bag. I made a sudden decision that day to give my money to that homeless man because I already had a home and a family and I could see in his eyes that he was struggling.
Something changed within me that day and I discovered that giving someone hope was the greatest gift of all. It changed my perspective forever. When I look at homeless veterans who not only have survived great trauma and have sacrificed their lives, but come home to a country spiritually and financially bankrupt. I want to restore their hope.
All those that serve in our mission are volunteers. It is our act of sacrifice and love to pass on spiritual liberation and hope for those debilitated by PTSD, substance abuse and depression stemming from war.
At Operation Hope conferences, veterans will experience deliverance and empowerment to breakthrough and break-free from personal and spiritual strongholds. Brothers in Arms has a mission to equip veterans to take their lives back! This is a life-changing ministry of discovery and empowerment. You are part of something greater than yourself.
