ATLANTA, Nov., 16 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Blaine Bartel, successful author, advisor, marketing and financial specialist for non-profits and ministries has become one of the most sought-after speakers in the world. Now, he's made the leap to serve in Life Changers International Church in Chicago, IL alongside its acclaimed pastor, Gregory Dickow.
Blaine Bartel has made his name as one of the greatest creative minds in the non-profit and religious industry. He has transfixed a student body of thousands by hosting "Fire by Nite," a television series for young adults which helped revolutionize youth ministry around the world. He then led the renowned Oneighty youth ministry, developing it into the largest student gathering in the U.S. with an attendance of 3,000 students weekly. Following this whirlwind of accomplishments, Blaine has become an internationally-known author of 10 best sellers. His work has been featured on "The Early Show," and in both The Washington Post and Seventeen magazine.
On Bartel's re-entry into ministry after a two year hiatus, Ron Luce, founder of Teen Mania, writes: "I know of very few people... who have gone to the height and depth of spiritual diligence, doing far more than any of his confidantes asked of him, to distance himself from past struggles."
Now, Bartel has joined the ministry team of Life Changers International Church in Chicago, alongside its founding pastor -- prolific author and Bible teacher, Gregory Dickow -- to embark on a powerful journey, one that will live up to the name of the ministry.
Life Changers International Church, along with its pastor, has become a house-hold name. In addition to pastoring the church, Gregory Dickow has created a dynamic outreach with his television ministry, The Power to Change Today, along with the global phenomenon "Fasting from Wrong Thinking," and his ground-breaking LIVE radio program Ask The Pastor where Pastor Dickow presents the dynamic message of God's love, grace and power.
"Grace and I are pleased to warmly welcome Blaine Bartel to the ministry team of Life Changers International Church!" says Pastor Dickow. "Through the amazing grace of God and the support of faithful friends, it is clear that God's hand is on Blaine's re-entry into ministry, and we're honored that his re-entry is with Life Changers. We are blessed to have seen Blaine's commitment to his character to be pleasing to God and to have given his full attention to God's healing in his life and family for the past couple of years. God is a God of restoration, and the souls and lives of untold thousands await the ministry re-birth of Blaine Bartel."
This new alliance will help continue the successful growth for Life Changers International Church, a brand of ministry sought around the world, marked by the love, grace and power of Jesus Christ-one that will reach a nation and world in need.
