Jim Halstead has served as an ordained pastor with the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) and the Christian Reformed Church (CRC) and has retired from the CRC with pastor emeritus status on July 19 2020. He has been a special education teacher in Indiana for ten years and he retired from the East Allen County Schools (Southwick Elementary School in Fort Wayne, Indiana) on May 21 2021. He is the founder and director of Go & Tell Ministries. They received its 501(c)3 non-profit status in September of 2020. This ministry was created out of a great need for more laypeople to be equipped to share the gospel with the lost. After much prayer and supplication the Lord gave Pastor Jim a vision of how to equip the body of Christ to easily share the gospel and fulfill the Great Commission. With the Lord’s continued leading he analyzed the best evangelism materials out there incorporated his 40+ years of evangelism experience and produced a step-by-step easy-to-follow evangelism approach. Since then he has been teaching and providing these evangelism materials to churches ministries and laypeople who wish to be better equipped in their evangelistic efforts.
