Zoweh Ministries—Life, Heart, and Kingdom. Three distinct words to describe the vision of our ministry and its initiatives. On a day-to-day basis our mission is to help people know and enjoy intimacy, connectedness and oneness with God. Helping people come to know who they are, where they are and all the good God is up to in their lives are important to the mission of Zoweh and the Thompsons. Sharing with others the full work of Christ through His death, resurrection and ascension is huge to a person experiencing the freedom and Life for which they were made!
Zoweh Ministries operates like a Medic Team and an Outpost in this greatest of love stories set in the midst of the fiercest of battles. People need a place to heal up, get cared for and be safe. They also need good information, tools, supplies and equipment. The Thompsons have had their hearts and lives profoundly impacted by God and extend their lives as a resource to others who are seeking direction, purpose, and meaning in their lives. Through different initiatives such as large conference and retreat events, weekly small group studies and one-on-one discipleship counseling, Michael and Robin look for and pray for opportunities to love, encourage, teach and guide in the fight for the hearts of others.
