Letter from Tom Shrader

To Whom It May Concern:

I am frequently asked to provide “letters of recommendation,” but most often I respectfully decline the request. My reasoning is simple; these documents regularly become the basis upon which very important decisions are made. And as a result, I approach these appeals seriously. That makes this a special moment for me. I am able to wholeheartedly and without reservation present this letter on behalf of Chuck Holmes and Mt. Nebo ministries.

For well over a decade it has been my privilege to have a “ringside seat” from which I’ve scrutinized Chuck’s labors. I have witnessed his steady faithfulness in serving the Lord through both Mt. Nebo and his role as an elder in our church. At the foundation of Chuck’s life and consequently at the center of his ministry is a love for God, His Word, and His people. 

Mt. Nebo boldly declares that genuine life change is found only in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Chuck unashamedly proclaims Biblical truth to all who will listen; and many are listening. The effort that began quietly in one Arizona prison has been extended by God and is now touching the lives of men throughout the nation. As God continues to open doors for Chuck I encourage you to consider partnering with Mt. Nebo in this vital work.
