GETTING TO KNOW YOU … LEROY CLOUD
Q: Please share a brief version of how you met Jesus and how God called you into full-time ministry.
A: I met Jesus at 5 years old in an AG camp. I was baptised in the Holy Spirit at the same time and spoke in tongues for an hour. I have felt the call from that time.
Q: Tell us about some (or all) of the places you served and how your ministry path led you to work with international churches.
A: For 4 years I was an evangelist. I pastored for 35 years and then have been a missionary in Hong Kong, Cambodia and Thailand. I have been in full time ministry for 60 years and have preached in about 70 countries.
Q: Where do feel that the international church is today in terms of opportunity and growth; and where do you see the international church headed in the future?
A: Because of people living in nations not their own, there is great opportunity as long as we stay on our foundation that we were called too.
Q: What do you feel are the biggest challenges facing international churches today?
A: I believe that we must present our message in such a way that people understand and see that we are people of the Word.
Q; What do think are the biggest opportunities for international churches today?
A: Every major city has English-speaking people. Let us have His vision to reach them. People are easier to reach when they are living out of their culture.
Q: How do you believe that organizations like the Fellowship of European International Churches and the Global International Church Network can help the international church movement today?
A: By inspiring them to reach out and sharing with them what has worked.
