Welcome To My Ministry Website

We are created in the image of God, and he calls his children to glorify him by following his commands and making disciples that do the same.  
Welcome to my website. The purpose for this website is to explain my ministry, give updates, as well as communicate with and invite others to join God’s mission here in State College.  My name is Jordan Alturas and I am currently a campus minister with New Life Fellowship on campus at Pennsylvania State University.  I also lead a multi generational men’s ministry called Ekklesia.  I am currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Biblical and Theological Studies at Western Seminary to prepare me for missions in Latin America and Church Planting.  I am passionate about teaching the Gospel explicitly and discipling others to do the same.

To Know Jesus. To Make Him Known.

 

The Gospel is God’s story of his creation, man’s introduction of sin which broke his heart because it severed the relationship he intended with man, his redeeming his people back to right relationship through the sacrifice of his perfect Son, Jesus Christ, and his progressive work of restoring us to be his perfect image bearers. 
 
My passion is to tell this story and to be used to introduce people to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ our Lord, savior, creator, and sustainer of the universe.  Below are the creeds I hold to, beliefs I affirm, and a brief explanation of the Gospel that I have written.

New Life Fellowship

We are… a collection of students at Penn State University seeking to experience a personal relationship with God.   We believe God offers new life through His son Jesus Christ and we meet together regularly to discuss what it really means to connect new life, with real life.  Nobody’s perfect, so we give each other as much grace as possible, while pressing on to accomplish His purpose.  Join us as we seek to love God and love all people with our head, heart, and hands.
At Penn State
Our desire for our New Life small groups is to create an environment for students to connect with God and each other on a deeper level.  In small groups its easier to get to know each other and share our struggles.  Also small group dynamics make discussion more natural and allow us to ask questions about scripture and better encourage and challenge each other as we grow in our relationship with God and others.
In Honduras
Our partnership with Honduras began in May 2002 with a trip to La Acequia, a town of approximately 1000 people, in which we helped build a house for a new pastor of a new church there.  We now are focusing on five main areas of ministry in La Acequia. We clearly want the people there to know Jesus in a personal way. Life is found in Christ alone. Other priorities include Health, Education, Leadership development and Poverty alleviation.

EKKLESIA

The Called Out Ones
 We have been called into a relationship with the one true God, and the body of believers. We have also been given a purpose of proclaiming the good news to the world so that others will join this fellowship of believers and have a personal relationship with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.   
The purpose of our group is to grow in real transparent relationship with each other and our God.  We are a multi-generational group of men dedicated to walking through scripture weekly and talking about real life so we can encourage and challenge each other to live lives that glorify God.  We are more than just a bible study, we have fun, share meals, celebrate, and mourn together.  We see each other as family, and desire to grow that family.

We are all called to ministry, though not all of us are called to it as a vocation. The work of missionaries is made possible by the support of the greater body of Christ. I need support financially as well in prayer, accountability, and encouragement. Join me in this mission of reaching students and men in State College and Latin America by clicking here.
