Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Missions is the plan and act of God for redeeming and making disciples from every tongue, tribe, people, and nation by sending His people to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, to show them the gracious, redeeming love of a glorious God, and to organize them into biblical, worshiping churches.

Dennis and Denie Heppner

Glen and Susie Anniskette have been actively engaged in the ministry of evangelism for over fifty years. They travel extensively throughout the United States and into many nations around the world hosting crusades, leadership seminars, and revivals.

Glen was born to a Tlingit (pronounced Kleenkit) Indian family in Alaska and has been blessed with cultural insight all his life. At the age of 15, God brought him out of a life of bondage of Indian superstition and into the glorious light of the gospel of Jesus Christ when he was saved at a Church of God youth camp in British Columbia. A short time later, he was filled with the Holy Ghost. Glen set out to work for the Lord as a 17-year-old and has not looked back as he pressed on to pursue the things of the Lord and the ministry God prepared for him. Glen completed his M.A. in Psychology at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary in 2018.

Susie, a native of Tampa, Florida, has had a heart for ministry since her salvation at four years old. She received her B.A in Communications at Lee University (where she taught for 12 years) and her M.A. in Journalism at Regent University. She also earned her ordination credentials through the Church of God. She uses these degrees to minister with her husband and write for the Evangel, Church of God Sunday School Literature, and other publications.

As the years have advanced, so has the Anniskettes’ burden and ministerial challenge to not only link efforts with national leaders and promote evangelistic outreaches but also to multiply their efforts by helping the pastors and church leaders spiritually and financially. These leaders go back to their people and effectively communicate what the Spirit of God has deposited into their lives. God has confirmed His approval of this new phase of ministry through the manifestation of His mighty power during these leadership seminars.

The prayer of Glen and Susie is that God will grant a sovereign move of His Holy Spirit, save souls, restore lives, and bring deliverance and healing wherever the door of opportunity is opened to this ministry.  The Anniskette’s latest project is to help found a Bible School in the outback of Australia for the First Nations people, also known as the Aboriginals.

Dennis and Denie Heppner and their four children came to the Philippines in 1987. They founded Gentle Hands Ministry as a ministry to urban poor women and children in Metro Manila, Philippines. From 1990 to 2005, over 6,000 babies were born under Denie’s leadership of a team of midwives and nurses.

Gentle Hands is currently led by their daughter, Charity and her husband, Evan Graff, and has expanded and evolved into 3 child-rescue centers for holistic care and healing of abandoned, abused, and sick children of all ages. In 2002, the Heppners also established a new orphanage in South India under local Indian leadership.

Dennis’s primary focus has been developing pastors and leadership in Asia. He founded a ministry called Developing Effective Leaders (D.E.L.), which provides frequent training to 500 pastors in the Philippines. He and Denie and their son Jonathan and his wife Tracey planted a church in Makati in 1998 where Dennis still serves as senior pastor. This church is growing and thriving with an average of about 500 converts a year. There are 5 new “start-up” church plants in Metro Manila at this time (2018). The mother church has sent missionaries to Thailand, Malaysia, Mongolia, and China, as well as to other areas in the Philippines.

Dennis and Denie have written several books and training materials over the years. One book, “Doorway to the Supernatural” is about the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It has been translated into six languages and is incredibly effective in bringing people deeper into the realm of the Holy Spirit walk of faith and power.

Dennis’ first trip to India was in 1979, and he has had a continuous ministry there since. For a number of years he was the Superintendent of COG there and still preaches at conventions and trains pastors every year.
Dennis and Denie’s long-term appointment as Missionary Evangelists to Asia by the World Missions Board continues and they have no plans to retire any time soon! Their burden remains the same and is the mission of their church and their other ministries. “Win Souls, Make Disciples, Build Leaders, Reach the World.” They are thankful to be part of God’s missionary army, and have never been sorry they came to Asia.
