For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation...
Romans 1:16
 Dr. Bob Martin pastored Baptist churches in the United States for 28 years with an emphasis on winning lost people to Christ. During the height of the Church Growth movement he advocated witnessing and soul-winning to be the Bible form of church growth, and the best form of church growth. He was involved in missions, and funding missionaries, before accepting the call of God to begin Bible Institutes in Central America. After 3 1/2 years in Nicaragua, he labored in Costa Rica for 8 1/2 years being sent by Southside Baptist Church, Vicksburg, MS and helped by Global Independent Baptist Missions.
 The Bible Institutes were founded on 3 premises; (1) teaching pastors how to personally lead a person to Christ, along with, how to teach their members to lead a person to Christ, (2) how to start Baptist churches, and (3) to give them a good Bible education. Our students personally lead (face to face with a Bible) over 1,750 lost people to Christ in 8 years. It was a simple matter of teaching them the "how" and the "why" of witnessing and turning them loose to serve the Lord with the knowledge they now possessed. God saved souls and turned churches around as those Spanish churches returned to the work of winning the Lost to Christ, and starting new churches that were dedicated to seeing the lost saved.
 Now the Lord has sent Dr. Bob back to the States and placed him into another work. The Weekend Soul-winning Seminar adopts the Bible Institute curriculum for winning lost and teaches it on a very simple church member level, thus giving anyone who will receive it, practical instruction in the basic tenets of witnessing.
