What’s new at Compassion Ministries

Welcome to our new website

First of all, for those of you who are new here, a brief history of Compassion Ministries/Heart of the Word is in order. Founded in Portland, Oregon, by Pastor Ron Mehl, Compassion Ministries has been a functioning charitable organization since 1994. It was founded primarily as a vehicle to be used to bless those laboring in the work of Christ - missionaries, pastors, churches, Christian aid organizations, etc.

Today, Compassion Ministries is also the vehicle of support for the nationwide "Heart of the Word" radio broadcast, which began in 1979, and features sermons from Pastor Ron’s 30-year tenure as the senior pastor of the Beaverton Foursquare Church. Currently, the broadcast can be heard in over 300 cities, in 45 states (as well as worldwide via the Internet), and we are prayerfully looking at further expansion even today.

So we invite you to explore these pages. You can learn more about our history, mission, and doctrinal beliefs in the About Us section, and you will also find information about some of the ministries we support on the Projects page. In the Heart of the Word section, you will find information about the radio broadcast itself, including current coverage areas and station information, as well as a streaming sample message, and a section which will be updated regularly and will tell about the latest news with regard to the program.

Lux et Veritas, or "Light and Truth", is our devotional section. It includes among other things written words of encouragement taken from Pastor Ron's years of ministry, bible studies, as well as recent updates and new information concerning our ministry. In the Links/Resources section, you can learn more about some of the organizations that Compassion Ministries has partnered with through the years.

And, in our totally revised Storefront (under the "Order" tab), you can order Pastor Ron’s books, individual sermons from the radio broadcast, sermon series, and even download the sermons directly in MP3 format! Also, new search functionality will let you look up sermons by scripture reference or subject matter – just in case your personal devotions lead you to study a certain topic, or you’re planning your own Bible study.

Thank you for taking the time to visit here. We would really love to hear from you regarding the new site, whether it be something you like, or don’t. Also, please let us know how we can better communicate and clarify our beliefs and goals, if you have a specific question or prayer request, or if you just want to share your thoughts and ideas. Write to us at info@heartoftheword.org - we look forward to hearing from you!
