Fall 2016


Spotlight: Donette Fulton

Donette grew up in a family that attended the Shaker Church.  Because she had never really studied the Bible herself, she had a lot of confusion about God’s Word.  She has come to discipleship off and on for the last 2 years and has consistently attending for 6 months.  As she reads, and meditates on the Word, she is growing strong and stable.734955_1091396810902185_5996208743372979399_n13244756_1139811416060724_8698403874708488988_n

It has been a joy to see her grow in the Lord.  Even as hard circumstances have come into her life, she turns to the Word of God, prayer, and her brothers and sisters for support. She said in discipleship class a few months back that she would like to teach the Word to others in the future.

As we look forward to the  Discipleship Class at S’Klallam Worship Center, located on the Port Gamble Reservation this September, we are excited to see how the Lord is going to use His Word to change lives. There are some expenses that we will have such as gas, the WFC course Walking the New Path and other costs related to this local discipleship training.  Please pray about supporting  this nw_tribes_mapoutreach on a  monthly basis.




We are continuing to reach out to Native Churches first in the Northwest, and then as funds become available will spread the circle. We are available to do training for a weekend, a week, or even longer.  We do need help on transportation, food, and WFC materials.



In addition,  this fall we will be developing  an online course of Walking the New Path. We have already made a introduction video to this series on our new Warriors for Christ Online YouTube channel.  Come by and check it out at:  My son Trent is helping us film this course and  is really doing a Great job!  Right now we are filming outside in the State Parks around Port Townsend. This provides a neat background for being on His Path- the theme of the course.DSC_0003

This special Warriors for Christ Online Discipleship Outreach will be able to reach Native Leadership, and Native Churches in America, Canada, and beyond.  We will first put the lesson  on YouTube, then on our WFC Website under Discipleship (see ),  and then put on our WFC Facebook page. The potential audience could be over 5,000. Maybe you would like to help our Online Staff in the necessary follow up that is needed to make it truly discipleship training, not just a Bible study.   It is all about changing lives through the power of His Word.


Warriors for Christ-  HEADQUARTERS:

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32




 “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.”
Philippians 4:11-12  

      As Paul writes, he has learned to live a life for Christ; not looking at what others had, but seeking to have a closer relationship with Jesus. 

      It is easy to see the “prosperity” of others and think,  “Why not me, Lord?”  Yet, do we really know how their life is going? Maybe they do have more money,  but how is their family life?  How will their children grow up?   How is their spiritual life? 

     Let us seek after a rich “spiritual life” and other blessings and contentment will come. The Lord is faithful to those who serve Him; to those who seek after Him. 

Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 103:2-5

  • Reaching Out: This summer we are reaching out to Native Pastors on reservations and in urban areas in the Northwest (WA, OR, ID, and B. C.) to bring discipleship training to Native churches. It is our goal to provide training  workshops in Native churches, to see lives changed, empowered by His Word, and then leave Walking the New Path, so those who have been through the training can disciple others. If you are a part of a Native church, share our information with your Pastor.  We also are available for discipleship training at the Warrior’s Path, the Warriors for Christ headquarters in Port Townsend, WA.
  • Convocation: We attended the Native American Fellowship Convocation in Auburn WA. It was a great time to meet up with friends around the country and represent Warriors for Christ. We are now following up several contacts we made.
  • Easter Dinner: Brown, came to discipleship class at S’Klallam Worship Center, so excited to tell us all his news. He was honored by his clan 11143274_1016766111666837_573850255979103617_o - Copythis Easter. He was asked to pray for the meal at his clan’s  Easter dinner. Like others in the class, he has experienced such great spiritual growth.
  • Discipleship Center: Through a generous gift, Warriors for Christ we will be able to finish the Discipleship Center.  We are so excited about this gift.  But, we could use your volunteer help with insulating, sheetrocking, painting, putting in a wood stove, etc.  Your men’s group or youth group could come as a mission trip.
  • Warriors for Christ YouTube Channel: Currently, we have Light for the Path on the YouTube channel and are adding more videos.  In the future we will start adding Walking the New Path.  This can be used for discipleship training around the nation, for those who can’t come to Warrior’s Path, or as a additional resource for disciplers.
  • 2 other special gifts: We received a general gift that we were able to use to cover travel expenses for Convocation. This was such a blessing. Another gift supplied 5 sets of Walking the New Path to those who would otherwise be unable to purchase the course.  Thank you so much to our faithful supporters.


(Below is an excerpt of the Warriors for Christ discipleship course, Walking the New Path. Each newsletter we add a new section.)


  1. Bible resources 
  • Versions of the Bible – Use a Bible that is easier to understand such as New King James, New American Standard, or New International Version. Warriors for Christ recommends the New International Version Study Bible or New American Standard Study Bible.
  • Study Bibles – Study Bible have additional notes and explanations at the bottom of the page that will help you understand the scripture you are reading. There are also several Bible helps at the back of the Bible, such as maps, concordance, dictionary, so you can study and understand the Bible better. Before you study the Word, pray asking the Holy Spirit to give you understanding and wisdom. You can also read the introduction to the book of the Bible you are going to read to give you more insight.
  • Bible Studies – These studies give you an overview and explanation of the whole Bible or particular books. For example, Chuck Swindoll’s “Insight for Living” has many great studies on books of the Bible.
  • Concordances –A concordance has a list of key words in the Bible. You can look up a word and it will give you a list of books, chapters, and verses that contain that word a specific word. An example would be “Strong’s Concordance.” You also may have one in the back of your Bible. So, if you looked up the word love, for instance, you could then find each verse in the Bible that contains that word. Thus, you could do a topical study and find out what the Lord says about certain subjects. Take time right now with your discipler to look up “love” or maybe “eagle” in your concordance.
  • Topical Bible References – Example Naves Topical Bible lists scripture by topic. It has Bible quotes by subject, topic, or a person. Warriors for Christ recommend you get “God’s Promises for Your Every Need.” This small book is great for studying, memorizing, meditating, and counseling.
  • Bible Dictionaries – Defines a word from a Biblical standpoint. This is important as the meaning of words changes as English meanings change. Such as the word “cool” used to mean something that is colder, but now means something trendy, fashionable, or really neat.
  • Book Commentaries – Gives an understanding and helps explain a book in the Bible, example is “Matthew Henry Commentary.” It goes through each book of the Bible with verse-by-verse explanation.
  • Paraphrase – A paraphrase is not a real Bible, but one person’s interpretation of what the Bible means. An example of this is the “Living Bible.” Paraphrases can be a good tool to help understand the main ideas of verses, but should not replace your Bible


  • “I am a Disabled Navy Veteran and my wife works at Wonder Works in Pigeon Forge…  We have been displaced” – Kevin
  • “… Lord I come to you in the name of Jesus that you come into my son’s Val life and cleanse him from all the negative friends and behaviors. Lord remove any and all cravings for any addiction in his life. Because I know that you Lord are in control and will provide what it is your will…. May all charges against Val be dropped on June 23 when he goes to court. ….” – Rose
  • ” Please pray for me. I helped this man for over four years. He had nothing when we met. Now he is in his own home, two cars, a truck, a phone. He claimed he loved me and wanted a life with me. He owes me a lot of money. ..I want God to help me. I want this pain and sorrow to be taken away. I am tired of running up with men who take advantage of my kindness…” = Norma
  • ” I have been experiencing an onslaught of attacks by the adversary over the past three yrs. Recently, the attacks have been more intensified. Every front is under constant attack: family relationships, financial, Spiritual, and health. I am requesting that you would stand in agreement with me, that these attacks would be squashed by the Holy Spirit. I pray this is according to HIS Will, and in the Name of CHRIST JESUS, Amen Thank you Prayer Warriors.. and many Blessings….” – Ron

Spring has Sprung!

Spring has Sprung! The fruit trees are in bloom, and, yes, the grass needs mowing. And Warriors for Christ is on the move.044
Let me first tell you of Brother “Brown. ” He is a fisherman from the Port Gamble S’Klallam Nation, and is a member of our Warriors for Christ Discipleship training class.
Brown’s Story:
The enthusiasm and dedication of our discipleship class has been amazing. Let us tell you about Brown Fulton as an example. Brown has been attending discipleship class faithfully. Not only is he committed to coming, he encourages others to come and learn about who they are in Christ and the path God has for them.

Recently, he came into class, his face beaming. His clan was having there Easter dinner at the tribal hall and he was asked to give the blessing.What an honor his people had given him. Through our discipleship class, he was equipped to take this leadership role.

Warriors for Christ’s discipleship course, Walking the New Path is changing lives. We can see how the power of God’s Word is changing lives. It has been exciting to see the effectiveness of Walking the New Path at S’Klallam Worship Center, but other nations churches also need discipleship training. To be able to reach out with Walking the New Path discipleship this spring and summer, we needed better transportation, a newer car. After two months of research and looking, we had narrowed it down to two models. When we were at a Honda dealership checking to see what they had, an 2007 Acura RDX came rolling out of the detail shop. After the Lord intervened during negotiations, we got a price we could afford, and we drove it home. It is More than we were looking for-it is not a good car –it is a Great car! God is so good!
We now need your help to pay for the down payment of $1,000. This was needed to keep our payments down to $200 per month. Will you bless Warriors for Christ and bring Native Discipleship to the Nations by helping us with a onetime gift to pay for the down payment and/or a monthly pledge. We also need your help as we reach out to Native churches to pay for the expenses of: gas, food, lodging, and Warriors for Christ discipleship course for the churches.

Meanwhile, back at the WFC Headquarters-(now named “Warriors Path”) we have some summer maintenance to be done. Our buildings need an overdue paint job. Cost to paint the discipleship center and the living quarters are $200. each. We need both funds and manpower to complete these projects. We also need a lawnmower as both of our mowers have died, approximate price is $200.

Please partner with us. Any gift you can make will really be appreciated!
