In April 2016 the evangelism training center was opened in Haymarket, Virginia. This location is the base from which Pastor Finley and Teenie continue the ministry they have conducted in over 100 countries world-wide. Classes focus on the Christ- centered Biblical principles that the Holy Spirit has guided him into in evangelistic proclamation and church growth with younger pastors. In 2016 alone they shared spiritual food to over 200 pastors and lay people. In addition, the training center and Southern Adventist University have partnered to established a Master’s Degree in Comprehensive Evangelistic Outreach and Mission.
Over the years, Pastor Finley and Teenie have adapted their ministries and their message to take advantage of the powerful impact of TV, radio, social media and the Internet. This is evident in the popularity of their HopeLives365 Facebook page, HopeLives365 Youtube channel, and the international HopeLives365 Online University.
