Order of the ring
At this year's OG Summit we honored five men with the ring. They were Jeremy Hall, Kevin Hall, Chris Gardner, Jim Roberts IV, and Kevin White. All have started churches and left them with national pastors. I wanted to share a little about this with each of you!

I am so honored to serve with so many great men and women. God has used them literally all over the world. Together we have covenanted the following:
WE COVENANT TOGETHER AND COMMIT TO:
Be true to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Give our lives to send the good news of salvation to the world through our going, giving, praying, and training others to do the same.
Plant indigenous local churches wherever God puts us.
Train national leaders and turn the work over to them.
Train, equip, and send national workers to do the work around the world.
Motivate, encourage, equip others to do the work of God around the world.
Our Motto is
“NO MAN LIVES TO HIMSELF”
“For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.” – Romans 14:7-8 “I have but one passion—it is He, it is He alone. The world is the field and the field is the world; and henceforth that country shall be my home where I can be most used in winning souls for Christ.” – Count Zinzendorf
THOSE THAT RECEIVE THIS RING MODEL OUR HEART AND OUR DESIRE.
They have been a part of the Vision team for at least 8 years.
They have started a church and turned it over to a national pastor.
They have been in the fight, shoulder to shoulder with the team.
They hunger to make others a success in their service to our God and king.
Currently 13 men have received this ring. I got the first one as a token of the men's love and respect. I loved the gift and the ring so much that we developed the order of the ring.
We got the idea because of the great Moravian missionaries of the past. You can read something about what they did here.
I am just blessed and honored to serve with people doing so much for Jesus.
