One of the Top 10 Influential Missions Organizations in the world today. Metro
Ministries is best known for reaching over 40,000 inner city children and their
families every week in New York City and around the world.
Pastor Bill Wilson is recognized as one of the great Bible expositors of our time
and is in constant demand as a conference and leadership speaker, invited to
motivate, encourage and challenge people to see beyond themselves and allow
the needs of the world to not just stir them, but rather move them to action.
Speaking at local churches and leadership seminars around the world, he does
just that. Pastor Bill has written multiple books and filmed reality-driven DVD’s on
the streets of New York. He has also been featured in a European documentary
titled “The Legend of Bill Wilson” that shows the life and ministry of a man that
has seen thousands of lives changed. Pastor Bill and the staff of Metro Ministries
have also developed a curriculum that is tested and proven in the hardcore, inner
city culture of New York and yet used by suburban churches around the world. It
has been translated into four major languages and utilized in hundreds of cities
Pastor Bill’s influence has not stopped in the local community of Brooklyn.
Throughout his travels around the world, Pastor Bill has witnessed cities,
villages, townships and homes filled with darkness. Places where abuse,
violence, poverty and hardship are common factors of societies that are crippled
and corrupt. Through the slums of India, into the tent cities of Haiti, to the
townships of Africa and the garbage dumps of Manila, Pastor Bill has been an
eyewitness to the darkness in the world. Believing that it is better to light a candle
than to curse the darkness, Pastor Bill has duplicated himself and the principles
of Metro and allowed his personal example as an enduring pioneer foster
commitment and devotion from over 180 staff and 400 volunteers, providing over
40,000 home visits worldwide to children and families each week. This individual
attention allows targeted humanitarian relief, which includes clothing, food and
mentoring to youth who are so desperate for direction in their lives. Most
importantly, Metro Ministries brings the Gospel to places where most people
don’t even think of going; It brings light to the darkness. “Acting locally, impacting

In 1981, Bill and Barbara Myers were planning to leave Indonesia and return to their home in America. But, God revealed to them the enormous potential of using video to reach the lost of Indonesia with the hope of the Gospel. It started small. A home video camera and a VCR were used to produce videos. Christian friends would ask to borrow copies to watch. They told their friends who would ask to borrow copies. This went on until we now have a lending library with tapes that go all across the country.
We began receiving requests from many villages to provide TVs and VCRs. That is when God first gave Bill the plan for Video Masuk Desa (Tel-A-Village).
Studio Pelita Desa’s part in VMD is to provide the programming that goes out to the villages. To do this the Lord has provided us with a studio facility just outside of Jakarta. Instead of the home video camera and a VCR, we now have several professional cameras, VCRs, and other types of equipment to produce quality Christian programming.
In this studio facility we are able to produce a wide variety of programs. They range from music and children’s programs like Rajawali Cilik to talk shows and teaching programs. The Lord has provided us with talented people to do these shows; not only in front of the camera, but also behind the scenes.

Victorious Christian Harvesters is a Latin American Ministry with a focus to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ world-wide. Founded in April of 1992 by David and Donna Blanchard, VCH is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in 2012. The U.S. offices are located in Laredo, Texas and the International offices are across the border in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. The International Harvesters Institute began in September of 2001. This evangelistic, ministerial training center is in its 10th year of training nationals to become dynamic and effective ministers. VCH has a five-fold strategy pursuing the God-given vision of One Million Bibles/One Million Souls. This five-fold strategy includes:
VCH has seen 597,845 salvation professions of faith, and more are being added to the Kingdom of God each day through evangelistic outreaches in cities, towns, villages and in rural areas throughout Latin America. The VCH vision is being accomplished by training nationals through the International Harvesters Institute, and by training American students through the Missionary Training Program. The IHI graduates are equipping other nationals to form church evangelism teams throughout the nations – to win souls, make disciples, strengthen and plant churches, and to multiply the strategy everywhere that God opens the door. Multiplication in the harvest fields has increased exponentially since we began our mass evangelism training seminars and outreaches called “INVASIONS”. Currently, VCH is ministering full-time in Mexico, Cuba and El Salvador. The Blanchard’s oldest daughter is also a full-time missionary in Asia.
