Welcome to The Ministry Of Restoration

RTC is an equipping ministry for those seeking a higher level of service, dedication and consecration in serving the Lord. Our mission is to train and equip individuals in the Body of Christ to become true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ through sound biblical teaching, personal experience and hands on ministry.

My wife Mary Ann and I have been involved in virtually every aspect of ministry in the past thirty years which includes residential care for life controlling issues, family counseling and ministry in the criminal justice system. We have ministered within the Parole Division in Texas and have been involved in prison and jail ministry throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.

Both Mary Ann and I are ordained non-denominational ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Certified Belief Therapists through the ministry of Therapon Institute which is recognized by the State of Texas as a viable counseling ministry. As a result of our personal hands on experience we feel led to share with others the power and anointing that comes through a daily walk with God in prayer and study of His word.

Our vision is to spread the truth of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ around the world, not only in word but in actually doing the greater works that He promised. If you would like to know more about the Ministry of Restoration or would like to receive our weekly messages please contact us. Your servants in Christ, Tim and Mary Ann Laughlin

Investing In The Kingdom

     There are many good works in ministry: feeding the poor, setting the captives free, healing the sick and making disciples, but without the sowing of the word of God it is all to no avail. The greatest need for the body of Christ at large is to show themselves approved to God as workmen in the teaching of the word of the living God!

    There is much activity but very little sound doctrine today in the lives of believers and the results have splintered the body of Christ into thousands of factions, denominations and sects of all kinds, greatly diminishing our strength to carry out the "Great Commission." We have been commanded to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, but instead, because of ignorance of the Word and selfish agendas we have only made Baptists, Pentecostals, Methodists, Lutherans, Charismatics, Catholics and so on, and so on. Has Christ been divided?

    We have been faithfully teaching and preaching the word for over thirty years and almost ten on this website with thousands receiving the sound wisdom and doctrine that leads to maturity in the Spirit. We have never begged for money, nor hounded people to give and we will continue to offer our services for free as long as the Lord leads, but the truth of the matter is this: we are worthy of our wages. This is my work, I work in my Father's business and He provides all of my needs, but I believe He is leading us to ask for people to invest in this work, God gives, but He gives through people and just as you work at a job, you expect to get paid.

    Ministry takes money to operate and expand and there are many areas of interest that we wish to expand into, such as videos, teaching materials and the publishing of books and devotionals that I write and are placed on our website. Our ministry and our personal income is very modest, with very little overhead and most of the funds we receive go into The Angel Bear Project that helps hundreds of people every year and our expenses to maintain the website, teach in our fellowship groups and for other ministry needs. We have approximately 4000-5000 visits to our website every month and I assume many are visiting each week to take advantage of valuable teaching, training and devotional studies. If just 1000 visited our site and gave $25.00 per month our budget would be $25,000.00 per month and we could greatly expand our outreach around the world!

    If you would like to invest in a ministry that sends out sound and profitable teaching and training around the world, we invite you to give a one time offering of any amount or become a Faithful Man or Woman by giving $25.00 per month or more and receive our weekly blog, our weekly devotionals and our prayer requests via email. We sincerely appreciate those who give to us on a regular monthly basis and we look forward to those who would join with us and invest in the work of God's kingdom.

    In order to give you can send your tax deductible gift to Restoration Training Center. P.O. Box 162932, Ft. Worth, Texas 76161 or at the bottom of this page you can use PAY PAL  by pressing the donate button and using your debit or credit card. Again, thank you very much for your interest in RTC and our ministry to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ and to expand His kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven!

Your servant in Christ, Tim Laughlin

Ministry Update 6/1/2015

THE MINISTRY OF RESTORATION- Our ministry of the word is increasing as we have had over 6000 hits on our website since the beginning of the year, not exactly viral, but continuing to grow and multiply as we sow it around the world. Weekly messages on our blog, daily devotionals five days a week and prayer requests are reaching people with the truth that is able to set them free and grow them up in the Lord as mature saints of the Most High.

FAITHFUL MEN AND WOMEN'S FELLOWSHIP- Every Tuesday night at 7:00 pm we meet at the Dixie House Restaurant on Blue Mound Rd. in Ft. Worth, Texas where we share the word, fellowship, and prayer as well as our gifts and talents to others of the body of Christ. Everyone is invited and we welcome you to come and be blessed as we experience the presence of the Lord together.

SOCIAL MEDIA- You are invited to like Restoration Training Center on Face Book and to follow us on Twitter where we share the word of God, updates, as well as promote the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

THE ANGEL BEAR PROJECT- This important project is the benevolent arm of RTC in which we give to the needy by networking with other organizations, churches and groups involved in the ministry of benevolence. For over fifteen years we have seen thousands helped through this very important ministry that began as a Christmas project but now is a year long endeavor. If you would like to purchase an Angel Bear for $25.00 or would like to make a donation or become a regular supporter you can do so on our website through Pay Pal or you can send your check to The Angel Bear Project, P.O. Box 162932, Ft. Worth, Tex. 76161.

MINISTRY NEEDS- As always we need regular monthly support that allows us to continue the work of service to the body of Christ as well as the outreach to the poor, needy and the lost. Your generous gifts are appreciated and always welcome. We have a need for a crew cab, 1/2 ton, two wheel drive pickup to pull our trailer that enables us to pick up and deliver products for RTC as well as Angel Bear. If you have a vehicle you are not using and would like to donate it we would greatly appreciate it.

THANK YOU- To all our friends, partners and supporters who have given faithfully over the years, we sincerely appreciate your generosity and your concern for this ministry. May God richly bless you and everything you set your hand to do!

    We therefore ought to support such, that we may become fellow workers for the truth. III John 8
