Mike Gendron - The authority of Rome (2003) For over 34 years, Evangelist Mike Gendron was a devout Roman Catholic and a strong defender of the "one true church." He was taught from a very early age, to trust and rely on the church, its priests, the sacraments and his own good works for salvation. However in 1981 while attending an evangelical seminar, he realized the Bible is the supreme authority for knowing truth. His new excitement and hunger for the inspired word of God led him to help organize the very first Little Rock Scripture Study at a Catholic Church in Dallas. Mike soon realized that many of the teachings and traditions of the Catholic religion were not found in the Bible. After more study he discovered the Roman Catholic plan of salvation was diametrically opposed to the Gospel of grace revealed in the Bible. This lead to a crisis of faith. Should he trust Christ and His Word or the teachings and traditions of his religion? He knew he could not believe both. God granted him repentance and he exchanged his religion for a relationship with His all-sufficient Savior. After discerning that God seeks worshippers in spirit and truth, Mike left the Catholic Church in 1985 for a church where the true Gospel is proclaimed and Scripture is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
In 1988 he left a successful career in corporate management to study at Dallas Theological Seminary. Four years later, during his last semester at DTS, Mike and his wife Jane's love for Catholics inspired them to begin a ministry that would point Catholics to the Lord Jesus Christ as their all sufficient Savior. Their hearts are now burdened for those who may be where they were for most of their life - eternally condemned and not even aware of it.

Twenty-three years ago, during Mike Gendron's last semester at Dallas Theological Seminary, he and his wife Jane began inviting Roman Catholics over to their home every Tuesday night to watch a Gospel video and answer questions. Within three months, they witnessed 17 Catholics exchange their religion for a relationship with the Lord Jesus. Soon they began inviting the new converts back on Wednesday nights to be discipled and to teach them everything Christ has commanded. With great joy the Gendrons witnessed these new converts, who were once dead in sins, come alive in Christ and begin to grow in His grace and knowledge.
Upon graduation from seminary, Mike worked as pastor of evangelism for three years at a Bible church while continuing his outreach and ministry to Roman Catholics. As the demands of Proclaiming the Gospel ministry grew, Mike left the church and began working full time equipping and encouraging the Body of Christ to be effective witnesses in the huge mission field represented by Roman Catholicism.
The heart and mission of Proclaiming the Gospel ministry is driven by Mike and Jane's deep compassion for Roman Catholics who are victims of deception. Together they recognize there is no higher calling than being ambassadors for the King of kings and taking His message to a lost and dying world. The supreme mission of the church is to be obedient to the Great Commission. God gives every Christian the privilege of glorifying Him by proclaiming the greatest news anyone will ever hear about the greatest gift ever given
