Like all Stauros workers, their approach is based on the ministry of Jesus. He spent time with individuals, befriending them and their families in the midst of their struggles and sharing the saving grace and freedom of the Gospel.Part of the ministry John and Peggy has been to help churches raise up disciple makers and mentors within local church congregations. They have two main goals. First, they share whatthey do and how they do it, and secondly, they offer training courses and workshops. These courses are designed to aid churches “integrate” individuals who need their love and support into their church community.A board consisting of Mike Kisner, John Zeigenfuse, Chris and Marie Spiess, John and Peggy Burghauser, Rock Stemple and Don Rifflegoverns the work in the USA.
