LOJ Ministries was founded in in August 2018 by Dr. Chris Gnanakan, Victor Stanley Jr., and Jeffrey Benson Jr. They started LOJ in order to train up young Christian leaders, developing in them a heart for the lost and the least. However, they recognized that often times parachurch organizations either siphon people out of churches and into their organizations to help accomplish their mission, or churches outsource their responsibilities to parachurch organizations. Thus, LOJ focuses on working in and through churches to help them fulfill the vision God has given them. We believe that the greatestest testament of the power and love of Christ is a transformed life. Therefore, our missions is simply this: “To strengthen churches and Christians around the world to transform their communities.”

"The greatest story ever told is not about a baby born in a manager in some forgettable little town in ancient Judea. Although, that particular story is part of the greatest story every told. No, the greatest story ever told is about the descendants of a sheep herder."
"Suddenly the silence itself became something to explore. Clearing my mind of all the clutter allowed me space to breathe, space to wander, and get real. The silence of God no longer felt like a cruel way of leaving me to my own devices – but it was a place where I was romanced, and could just be."
"Life is full, distracting and a lot of times when that request for prayer comes in, we’re not really dialed into praying."
