DRIVEN International Ministries is not a business model to alleviate world poverty.
It is not an ambitious brigade out to change the world.
It is not a enlightened quest for self-fulfillment or life-purpose.
It is a command from the Lord.
The heartbeat of DRIVEN International Ministries is to develop a holistic approach to treat the symptoms of fatherlessness in Zambia. This vision from God will help change the lives of the children in Zambia for generations to come.
One particular meeting with the Lord, the question was posed by the Violas, “What do you want us to do in Zambia? Why are you sending us there?”
The answer... Exodus 23:30. “Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land.”
“You” is the Kingdom of Heaven. “Them” is the Kingdom of Darkness.
In Christ’s model prayer, He teaches us to pray, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” Matthew 6:10. God’s message to the Viola family and mission for the conceived DRIVEN International Ministries was to go to Zambia as deployed soldiers in the Army of God, driving out the Kingdom of Darkness, little by little, that so rampantly dwells and imprisons the continent of Africa, and claiming ownership of Zambia and Africa for the One to whom it already belongs, the Kingdom of Heaven. Bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth.
The assurance in Exodus 23 is that the work is not of man, but of God, which He will do in and through the ministries of DRIVEN. Hence, at DRIVEN International Ministries, we claim to know nothing but Christ and Him crucified, and though we may be weak and even trembling we pray your faith is not in us, the wisdom of men, but in the power of God unto His glory.
