Power to Change – Digital Strategies

James Warkentin is a missionary serving God as a Web Programmer with Digital Strategies, a part of Power to Change (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ). As Technical Director, James is responsible for much of the back-end code required to make the websites work properly. He manages a small team of other programmers and designers as well as doing a lot of the programming himself. 

Half the world is online. As of today, that’s over three billion people. And they’re turning to the Internet for answers, for some kind of hope. They’re looking for people who understand and can offer love and support. So Digital Strategies helps them know Jesus. They start by telling compelling stories that get right at the need people are experiencing. Then they encourage people to talk to an online mentor. Digital Strategies equips and mobilizes over 1,000 online mentors to walk with people throughout their spiritual journey toward Jesus, both online and in person, and also partners with churches and ministries to do the same. Because the world is online, that’s where Digital Strategies is too. They’re helping people know Jesus, one conversation at a time.

World Team

Gary and Sandra Clow have just retired from World Team, but we’ve kept their information here so you can read about their missionary involvement over the many years. 

Gary and Sandra Clow are missionaries with World Team, which they joined in 1986 and served as church planters through 1994. In 1995 Gary became World Team Cuba Ministries Coordinator. In 2004 Gary took on the role of Operations Manager for the Americas Area of World Team. From 2014 until 2022 he served as the America Areas Director, overseeing World Team ministry in South America, the Caribbean and North America.

In 1990 Gary began serving as as communications liaison between World Team and The Evangelical Convention of Cuba, Los Pinos Nuevos, the denomination begun by World Team missionaries in 1928. As a Spanish speaker Gary is able to speak directly with church leaders in Cuba.  Ministry also includes preaching and teaching in Cuba, as well as leading ministry trips to Cuba for Christians who wish to be involved in that exciting ministry.

Gary’s involvement in Cuba grew until 1995 when he was appointed Cuba Ministries Coordinator, one of the positions he currently holds within World Team.  This work involves coordinating World Team’s ministry with our denomination in Cuba, The Evangelical Convention of Cuba, Los Pinos Nuevos, and with other denominations, as well as coordination of ministry involving other missions who work with World Team in Cuba.

Over the past ten years Gary has become involved in the World Team training department.  He is one of the facilitators in several of World Team’s online eLearning courses and helped in the development of some of the courses. In January 2022 he took on the position of Oversight of the World Team Online Training System as well as overseeing the World Team ministry in Cuba.

Sandra is always active in evangelism, discipleship and mentoring.  When we were church planting she led the women’s ministries and social activities.  Today she continues to do the same things.  She has weekly Bible studies, one on one with women, especially younger women.  She is mentor to many women, visits the sick in hospital and is head of women’s ministries in the church we currently attend.  Sandra is busier in personal ministry than Gary!
