A Plan From God
In the summer of 2002, Co-founders Josh Wiley and Jeff Telling were working together in the consumer credit industry when they first learned of God’s plan for them.
One Monday morning while catching up at work, Jeff and Josh began describing a vision they had each experienced in their separate homes the previous day. As the similarities mounted, they could not deny it was a calling from God – and they would be starting a ministry in the future.
A Call to Act
From 2002 to 2011, Josh and Jeff regularly spent time discussing and faithfully developing ideas for their Christian ministry, but it was clear the timing would be on God’s schedule.
Finally in Febuary of 2011, God’s will was revealed to Josh as he was studying the Israelites liberation in the book of Exodus. Moses and the Israelites were camped by the Red Sea when they discovered they were being pursued by the Egyptians. Moses called out to God for guidance and God answered.
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.” Exodus 14:15
And so, as God told Moses to take action moving forward, Josh recognized the time had come to start the ministry He had revealed so many years ago.
A Promise Fulfilled
Telling Ministries began with the concept of using a website to share God’s message. What Christians Want To Know was created and Josh was blessed to quickly locate a strong team of Godly writers.
God led readers to the site and the ministry rapidly began to grow. Jeff began developing a strategy to utilize Social Media’s wide reach to draw in even more of God’s flock.
A Flock Gathered
Two short years later, over 23 million people in 235 countries have responded to God’s call to find solace and guidance in the Bible based articles.
Each month, over 4 million visitors read a total of 5 million pages filled with scripture and biblical insight to God’s truth.
To God be the glory!

A Future Vision
As Telling Ministries continues to grow and be blessed by God, so do the opportunities to guide and inform even more Christians around the world.
God has given us a limitless gift in technology, when used correctly. People all over the world will be blessed with God’s loving guidance as they learn the truth of the Gospel and Jesus.
