JPA Ministries

Reaching the Philippines for Jesus Christ
Jireh Phil Am exists to advance the Kingdom of God through proclaiming the Gospel, equipping leaders for service, and loving people in Christ’s name.

How it started

In 2011, Jack and his wife Marpet felt the Lord’s calling to go serve in the Philippines.  After much thought and prayer, they decided to follow the Lord’s will and alter their lives to serve as much as they could.  They love what they do and the people they have the opportunity to work with.  Thanks to many blessings, such as partnerships with churches like Grace Community Church, First Baptist Sevierville, and many others, they have been able to grow this ministry into what it is today.  They are excited to see what God has in store for the future and would love to have more people involved.  JPA Ministries serves in many areas around the Philippines and look to grow even larger.

Children's Ministry

JPA loves people in Christ’s name and we extend the same grace that He showed the people during His ministry on earth. Therefore, we feed hundreds of children through our “Kidz Clubs”. In addition, we provide their practical needs such as providing simple footwear. JPA’s “Slippers from Our Saviors Ministry” provides thousands of slippers to children every year.

Pastor's Training

Much of what we do is aimed at training local Pastors in order that they might be thoroughly equipped for every good work. We partner with the Bible Training Center for Pastors to provide curriculum in a class designed to reach untrained pastors. We also conduct Regional Ministry Training Conferences instructing pastors, their wives, and church staff members in a relaxed conference setting


We seek to take advantage of the opportunity to speak to students of all ages in the public and private schools, where we are welcomed by the local governments, about the amazing gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. 

Church Planting

We desire to help local Pastors develop new churches. With a large cult presence, the Philippines has a great need for evangelical churches. We partner with men through training and support as they plant churches. We have assisted in 17 church plants with our 18th underway.
