Dr. Howard Foltz and his wife, Pat, have been in active ministry since 1963. They pioneered the Teen Challenge ministry in Dallas/ Fort Worth, and began the first Teen Challenge ministry overseas in 1969 which expanded into 27 countries. Now Teen Challenge is in 135 countries around the world. In 1985, Dr. Foltz became Professor of Global Evangelism at Regent University. He and Pat also founded Accelerating International Missions Strategies (AIMS) that year. AIMS mobilizes churches to take the Gospel where it has never been proclaimed. Over 170,000 pastors and leaders have been trained, and more than 51,000 churches have been planted by these national partners. An estimated 34.3 million people have heard the gospel, most for the first time; and approximately 3.1 million people have been saved. Their greatest desire is to see the Great Commission become the Great Completion!
