Chairman’s Message T

he Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20 is expansive, covering all kinds of outreach in every corner of the globe. For each of us then, the question is, “What is the Lord calling me to do to help fulfill His commission?” In the New Testament, you can see people called by God to a wide variety of ministries. For example, there’s the healed demoniac of Mark 5:1-20, whom Jesus asked to return home and tell everyone what God had done for him. You’ll see in Luke 10:1-12, that Christ sent out 70 of His followers to minister in nearby towns.


Or there’s Paul, who in Galatians 1:16 states his calling to reach the gentiles—a work which necessitated long-distance missionary journeys.

At Quiet Hour Ministries, we feel especially called to share the gospel through overseas evangelism. God has opened numerous, exciting opportunities for our mission team members—people just like you—to go and proclaim His saving grace all around the world! As literally hundreds of thousands of people hear the good news every year, I clearly see God at work through you and Quiet Hour Ministries. You truly are helping fulfill the Great Commission! Thank you, thank you for responding to God’s call. I’m so grateful to side-by-side serve our Savior with you.

Dan Cotton Chairman of the Board

President’s Message W

hen I consider how the Lord has blessed this ministry over the past 77 years, I can only exclaim, “To God be the glory, great things He hath done!”

I even saw God take away his chain smoking habit in a single day!

And the great things God has done are truly through you. So it’s with deep gratitude that I share this report with you. Your prayers, partnership and gifts have been blessed by God to make this ministry possible!

As you read this report, I know you’ll rejoice with us for what God has done and continues to do through this ministry. But beyond that, may you be energized by what God is doing through you too. Without you, none of these precious people would have been reached!

2013 will go down as truly a banner year. Can you believe it, total baptisms of over 19,000! And thanks to you, heaven-sent financial blessings. I know God’s miraculous hand was there all the way. You’ll see that in the following pages. I personally witnessed it in the Philippines, where a Japanese businessman came to know Jesus at our evangelistic meetings.

He was just one of literally thousands who responded to the call of God over the past year!

Truly these are exciting times to be sharing God’s saving grace around the world. And I’m so thankful to work handin-hand with you and with Him!

Bill Tucker President/Speaker


CEO’s Message


esus said, “You will know them by their fruits.” Matthew 7:16 NKJV. Because of God’s blessing through you, 2013 bore much fruit indeed. Truly the Lord’s blessings were poured out on Quiet Hour Ministries in many ways. God brought mission-minded partners like you who joined in the work. There were also local Seventh-day Adventist Church leaders and members all over the world who served tirelessly to assist our outreach. In addition, organizations like Gospel Outreach, ShareHim, University Travel, Lyons Club and others partnered with us to lend invaluable support for our evangelism mission trips. The Lord also provided financial resources through your generous gifts, for which I cannot thank you enough.

Growing our key partnerships with churches and missions all over the world. Increasing the numbers of team members who go and proclaim Christ on our mission trips. Reaching thousands more people with the message of God’s saving grace! God is already blessing us with many new opportunities. Several Adventist universities and many churches and schools are coming onboard for evangelism mission trips. Hundreds of individuals are heading to the mission field! As you can see, every person, every organization, is part of God’s blessing on this ministry. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing God to work through you to win souls. I know you rejoice with us in that priceless harvest.

So what’s next? 6

Because of you, we’re going to continue pursuing God’s future for us.

hroughout this report, you’ve seen examples of God’s hand at work.

Now I’d like to show you even more evidence of God’s power, through an objective look at our 2013 finances.

Mission Distributions


Resources to Win Souls

3% 7%

At a time when budget estimates called for modest results, we ended the year in a very strong overall financial position. The result? A positive bottom line, debt-freedom and increased corporate and mission reserves. Thank you for making that possible! At the end of 2013, our assets and our liabilities are down about $200,000 from the previous year. Net income shows a gain of almost $1.2 million, compared to a loss of $292,000 in 2012. Praise God! There were several contributing factors to the year-end results. Among them, reduced expenses and the generosity of several people through their final estate plan. Contributions in 2013 were $3.4 million, compared to $2.8 million in 2012. Yet there were 200 fewer individual donors in 2013. Only God could have expanded donations and protected investments to create these tremendous results.

In 2013, 64 percent of the funds you gave for missions were used for Seek, Reap and Keep evangelism. This includes evangelistic meetings, medical clinics, children’s outreach, Bibles, construction projects and gospel workers.


Board � Directors


Dan Cotton Chairman Darold Retzer Vice Chairman


Stand-alone evangelistic meetings made up an additional 15 percent of mission funding.

Bill Tucker President

The remaining 21 percent of mission funding went to mission projects such as Muslim outreach, mission field motorcycles, medical supplies and equipment, church construction and providing local-language Bibles. Because of you, some 40 of these projects received funding!

Randy Bates CEO

Reviewing everything you made possible, I’m deeply touched by your careful and prayerful decision to give your resources to win souls for Christ. We vow to continue providing excellent stewardship of your gifts. And thank you for joining hands with God to accomplish His work in this world.
