Share the Gospel

God calls us all in different ways. Whether you donate to our mission, join a trip, or subscribe to our newsletter, you are an important part in supporting the Church of Cuba as they share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Story

The call of God is how Atulado Ministries was born. After being invited to join a mission trip, founder, Wayne Snyder, was prompted by God to visit ministries in countries his church was investing. In Ethiopia, he saw impoverished local churches flourishing in the presence of God, he was exposed to construction projects, and he learned about sports ministry in the Christian church. In China, he saw how the church movement was being used by God to reach an oppressed people. In Costa Rica, he saw the impact of thoughtful and organized training can have on a pastor and the leadership team of a church. On his first trip to Cuba, he saw the same impact training makes in the life of someone in full-time ministry.

Wayne served on a global outreach team reviewing ministry projects, funding activity, and developing ways to share how bringing resources to these nations also provides Christian renewal to the people who serve.

“That’s when God pushed me through a door to launch Atulado Ministries.”
– Wayne Snyder
