|I truly believe God was preparing me for this ministry from the moment I accepted
Christ as my Savior on March 4, 1967. I was working at The American Publishing
Company as a layout and design artist when a new pastor in our area invited me to a
Word of Life Youth Rally at Brookdale Baptist Church in Bloomfield, N.J. That Night I
accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I knew I needed to be able to tell others
about Jesus Christ. With the help of that Pastor, James Gent, I was enrolled In
Tennessee Temple Bible School, College and Temple Baptist Theological Seminary in
less then 90 days. I Studied there until August of 1970.

|In September of 1970 , the Lord led me to Child Evangelism Fellowship Institute in Muskegon, Michigan
where I learned about Story Telling And Flannel Graph , Radio Drama, and even Television Production with
"The Tree House Club" starring Earl the purple squirrel. Odd, yes, but God had a plan for my life. I just
didn't know it yet. At the completion of my training, I accepted the call as Passaic County director of Child
Evangelism Fellowship, where God used me as the youngest director in the history of Child Evangelism
Fellowship, to do a remarkable work with some remarkably talented teenagers as summer missionaries. One of
those teenagers was George W. Wiesner, III, now known as the world famous organist of Radio City Music
Hall for over 25 yrs. During that first summer, George would be used by God to write and perform the musical
background for a story God had me write, "The Ballad of Two Brothers", which was recorded by Family Radio
for Word Record Co. , and played on Family Radio throughout the United States, in 1971.
|The why and how God led us to
|A service ministry
Serving Christ through the Education, Spiritual Care, Counseling and The Arts
|God has lead so clearly since the beginning of this ministry that we know that He is going to use it for His purpose
to reach the lost for the Kingdom of God, and to be used to call many Christians into service for His Kingdom, both
in and out of their local churches. We covet your prayers and support for the arts that God has used throughout the
years to serve Him. From Handel and List to George Wiesner and Fred Davies. From Michelangelo to Thomas
Kinkade to David Mitchell. From the lightheartedness of the prophets of old to the comic wit of a Mark Lowry. All
of the arts remember from music and dance to Cooking and comedy are arts given to us to use for the Glory of
God. In 2009 God turned another milestone with Splendor Ministry leading us into hospitals and nursing and
assisted living facilities, Ministering and designing Chapels, Web sites, and working with more then 55 hospitals in
17 stats with the HMA Corporation. Have you used your art gift for His Glory today?
Our 2011/2014 Governing Board
I rejoice that Marlene Lewis serves as our President/Treasurer, Janet Rae Donnelly as our Vice
President/Secretary, and Suzanne Rae McCormick, Arts Consultant, Rev. John Beward, Rev. Jay Brigham,
Spiritual Advisors, Gerald Blake and Raymond Wallace Board Members.
Please pray for our board that God will lead us in all our endeavors.

|Tell Me The Story of Jesus
|My freshmen year working for the school I was assigned
to the Charles F. Weigle Music Building, the writer of great songs like "No-one Ever Cared For Me Like Jesus"
and "A Garden of Roses is Jesus". You can't be sharing the testimony of a blessed man of God like that to visitors
and students without it influencing your life, so music became a great part of my Christian Service.
|Then in 1973 Calvary Bible Church in West Milferd, N.J. Called me as youth director and we did living dramas
including "The Funeral of "I. Will Later" and "The Church In The Year 2525", which God used to win hundreds
of teens and adults to a saving knowledge of The Lord Jesus Christ. While in the Northeast I also ministered with
my father (Captain KEN DO) I can do all things through Christ. In the New York New Jersey area.
Then in 1976 I was hired by The Walt Disney World Co. as a Voice for the Company. Giving me the privilege to
sing for 25 years in the Cast Candle Light Choir. I transferred into Retail Store design, and after September 11,
2001 moved to Security operations.
In 1994 we started Splendor Ministries as a part time ministry to help Performers and churches as we could, and
through the years it has developed to the point where it is today. We now have a board of directors, assets and
even our own Chapel with weekly services. To God Be The Glory!!
