Lifting the Sinkers


Dear Friends:

A lot has been going on here with ministry. The Lord laid a burden in my heart for reaching Africa with the Gospel message, and the strategy is to mobilize passionate young people who long to see God move in their nations and in Africa; and to train and challenge them on the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, which was given in unmistakable terms!

April 21st & 22nd 2011, we had a Youth Summit specifically for residents of Jos who are enthusiastic to see revival in the City of Jos. During the Summit, the Lord gave us the Acts 1:8 strategy. We began to pray and seek the Lord for clarity and direction. It was at this point that He directed us to organize another Summit and invite zealous Youths from all the 17 Counties/Local Government Councils of Plateau State, which we did on the 20th – 23rd June 2011, in Jos. The presence of God was overwhelming! We were all broken and brought down on our knees. We saw our inadequacies and desired MORE of HIM. We called on Him with sincerity and oneness of heart to help and empower Us to reach Plateau State for Him.

We left the venue charged and ready to go and take over State for Jesus!!! There is a powerful growing move of God taking place in the State right now. Young men and women are realizing that they are not just Ambassadors of Jesus Christ on the pages of Scriptures, but His Ambassadors on earth; Salt & Light of the world, who must represent Him wherever they go!

We are presently planning a National Youth Summit sometime in September/October 2011. We are expecting God to move in an entirely different dimension! We are inviting three key Youths from each of the 36 States of Nigeria, who have a ‘mad’ passion to see a mighty revival hit the nation of Nigeria by spreading through their different States. This will last for four days and will take place in Jos. Our prayer is for God to revive and move in this nation again! 

Until Africa is Reached!
Acts 20:24




 THE VISION of Lifting the Sinkers Ministry is birthed from Jude 23... (“Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment…” (NLT).) The vision was planted in the heart of its founder, Jerry Anze, many years before the work actually began. He began to pray and seek the Lord for a Biblical understanding of the ministry and the establishment of the work, which was to later become Lifting the Sinkers Ministry and his life’s calling.


 Our Mission is to challenge and mobilize Christians to reach their nations for Christ; so that every NATION, every TRIBE, every PEOPLE, and every LANGUAGE in AFRICA will be represented before the THRONE and in front of the LAMB. Rev. 7:9


 Our focus is to give a wake-up call to the African Church; analyze the advances and growth of Islam and its threat to Christianity; present before the Church the magnitude of the work yet undone and equip the Church on how to help fulfill the Great Commission; and strategize on how to REACH Africa by Africans!


 The ministry is to addicts, prostitutes, orphans, widows and the imprisoned.  The outreach is to the Cities, Villages, Colleges, Universities and Nations of Africa.


  Evangelism and Discipleship.


  Our Strategy is to EXPOSE as many people as possible to the GOSPEL.  WIN them to CHRIST.  BUILD them up in DISCIPLESHIP and SEND them forth to PROCLAIM the GOOD NEWS of the GOSPEL throughout the WORLD.

Statement of Belief:

We believe that there is one living and true God who eternally exists in three distinct Persons; The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
• We believe that Salvation is by God’s grace and it is a gift of God received by faith alone. 
• We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are miraculously born again by the Holy Spirit and become children of God and partakers of His Divine nature.
• We believe that God created all, upholds all, governs all and He so loved the World even in the midst of its fallenness and sin that He gave His only Son for its redemption.
• We believe that Jesus Christ is God, the Living Word and is eternally pre-existent and co-equal with the Father; that He became flesh through His sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute. He rose from the dead and is seated at the right hand of God the Father.
• We believe in the literal physical return of Our Lord Jesus Christ to take authority and rule on earth, and to judge the living and the dead.
• We believe that the believer possesses great authority through Christ over the power of spiritual darkness led by Satan, the ruler of this world. We actively exercise this authority as we walk by faith, pray and do spiritual warfare.
• We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and with the Son, that He was active in the creation of all things; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, baptizes, indwells, anoints, illumines, guides and bestows this upon all believers. His fullness, power and holiness are appropriated in the believer’s life through faith and obedience.
• We believe in the Universal Church, the Living Spiritual Body of which Jesus Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members, and in the unity of the entire believer’s in Christ with the evidence of that unity being shown by how we love one another!
