It Is Written welcomes Wes Peppers as the ministry’s new evangelism director. Peppers replaces Yves Monnier, who accepted a call to serve as the ministerial and evangelism director for the Pennsylvania Conference in the United States. Peppers began his new position in August.
Peppers joins It Is Written from the Michigan Conference, where he served for 10 years as a pastor, personal ministries director, evangelism coordinator, and associate ministerial director. He also has experience in international media evangelism from his time with Amazing Facts.
“We’re thrilled to have Pastor Wes Peppers join our team,” John Bradshaw, It Is Written speaker and director, said. “He is an unusually gifted speaker and evangelist and has been extremely successful in pastoral and evangelistic ministry, as well as in administration. He has a love for souls that is obvious and infectious. It is a privilege to have someone of his caliber join us at It Is Written.”
As the new evangelism director, Peppers will handle the creation and execution of the master plan of evangelism for It Is Written. Having done mission work in 35 countries, he is ready to lead the evangelism team as It Is Written continues to reach souls around the world with the gospel.
“I love It Is Written because it focuses exclusively on proclaiming the everlasting gospel and reaching the lost for Christ,” Peppers said. “One of my greatest passions in life is sharing Christ with others through preaching, Bible study, and media programming. I love to train churches and members how to share their faith with others. I am looking forward to using the gifts and experiences God has given me to minister around the world through It Is Written while personally living in His grace and strength each day.”
Peppers and his wife, Marion, said they felt a clear call from God to take the position. “Over a two-month span of time, there were a series of miraculous events that finalized our decision,” he said. “After several weeks of fasting and wrestling in prayer, God overwhelmingly confirmed that His will was for us to serve at It Is Written. We have all the confidence in the world that we are exactly where God wants us to be!”
He and Marion, a musician, have been married for almost 17 years and are joined in ministry by their two children, Levi and Liana.
