Reign Ministries Vision and Values

A man preaching to a crowd of students.


As a youth pastor, Revered Louie Inks wanted his students to experience a mission trip overseas, but he was unable to find an organization that emphasized discipleship and evangelism the way he envisioned. So in 1980, he organized and led the trip himself. He found that this 8-week summer mission trip had a profound impact on the lives of his students, in part because of the focus on ministry, emphasis on discipleship, all in an environment outside their comfort zone.

Louie founded Reign Ministries in 1981 and the first official Royal Servants mission trip was launched in 1982. That trip was composed of 44 students and staff, over half of whom, amazingly, later became involved in full-time vocational ministry.

Reign Ministries was a result of the conviction that God can (and wants to!) use teenagers as ambassadors for His Kingdom and 40 years later, we still believe it.

OUR vision

Fueled by over forty years of unbridled enthusiasm, both for teenagers and the local church, we have discipled youth and trained youth workers for a lifetime of ministry. Our vision is to:

Expose students to the world's burning need for a Savior,
Equip them to meet that need through discipleship,
Ignite in them a passion to serve and
Send them home to be actively involved in ministry and impact their world for Christ.


We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten son of the Father, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His complete conquest over the power of Satan, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His imminent return.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the lost unto eternal separation from God, and the saved to eternal life in the presence of God.

We believe that all who come by grace through faith to accept the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are guilty sinners in thought, word, and deed.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, inerrant in its original manuscripts.
The Bible is our supreme and final authority in faith and life.

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling Christians are enabled to live Godly lives full of power.
