What can we tell you about us?
Pat and Mike pastored in Colorado and Florida for several years before moving to Guatemala in 1990 with their two young sons. Upon arriving in Guatemala, Mike started his missionary life as a teacher in a Bible School for leaders and pastors. After a year, he felt led of the Lord to start his own Bible School. Along the way, Pat and Mike started an elementary school for Mayan children and two very dynamic children and feeding programs.
They founded the Revival Center, a church in Guatemala City. Their family grew as they adopted two Mayan children and took under their personal care three abandoned teenagers. They also began working in a remote desert area of Guatemala reachable only by 4×4 vehicles or a 3-hour walk. Mike and Pat are the founders of Mike Black Ministries.
Currently, Mike Black Ministries runs a radio program which is broadcast Monday through Friday. They also receive short-term missions groups and travel often to the United States to minister the Word of God in churches.
During their years on the mission field, Pat and Mike have seen countless healing miracles, demonic deliverances and supernatural manifestations of the Holy Spirit through their ministries. Violence and personal danger are common concerns for Mike and Pat and their ministry team. However, they have never doubted the apostolic call upon their lives for the nation of Guatemala and all Latin people throughout the world.
The staff of Mike Black Ministries is made up of:
- A paid staff of five full-time Guatemalans,
- A missionary from England,
- Several volunteers here in the field,
- A stateside representative who handles our finances and correspondence,
- Good-hearted churches and individuals in the United States who financially support us,
- A corporate Board of Directors,
- Mike and Pat Black.
Mike Black Ministries is a non-profit organization that offers tax-exemption to its financial contributors.
Mike Black accepts invitations to minister the Word and share the dream that God has for Guatemala in U.S. churches and organizations.
