Declaring Truth Ministries is a sovereign grace open-air evangelism ministry based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is lead by Zoe White, an unworthy servant of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. God called Zoe into a life of evangelism in 2006. This resulted in many short term mission trips to South Africa, Swaziland, Vietnam, and India. He is now preaching the gospel in the open-air regularly in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and beyond. Zoe and Chelsea have been married since 2011 and they have six young children (Zuri, Cruz, Crozby, Azalea, Zinnia, & Zion). In 2018, Declaring Truth @ Mardi Gras launched as an annual evangelism conference and short-term mission trip in New Orleans. In 2019, The Whites sold their home and moved into a 40 foot motor coach bus conversion. In 2020, with the need to preach a Biblical Gospel so great, with the discipleship of believers so lacking, with the brevity of life so clear, The Whites decided to establish Kerusso Baptist Church. In 2021, through the generous gifts of their ministry partners, the Lord allowed The Whites to move out of their bus and into a beautiful house near LSU campus in Baton Rouge. Their home is a joyful hub of home schooling, discipleship, evangelism coordination, and prayer. On July 18th, 2021, Kerusso Baptist Church officially chartered as an independent church body recognizing its first members and elder. On the following Sunday, July 25th, Kerusso celebrated their first baptism of a new convert.
By the grace of God and through the cheerful giving of our ministry partners, Declaring Truth Ministries will continue to encourage and equip the Bride of Christ to engage in open-air preaching, literature distribution, everywhere evangelism, and church planting for the advancement of God's Kingdom.
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek."
The doctrinal stance of Declaring Truth Ministries matters. We define and declare God's doctrines according to His written Word and we make the most essential doctrine, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, central to everything we do. We affirm the Five Solas of the Protestant Reformation and the Doctrines of Grace. We are in general accord with Particular Baptist confessions of faith, such as the First London Baptist Confession of Faith (1644/1646). We also welcome evangelistic partnerships with conservative evangelicals that align with historic, reformed creeds, confessions, and catechisms such as the Nicene Creed, the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (1689), Westminster Confession, and Heidelberg Catechism.
"As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry."
(2 Tim. 4:5)
Thank you for visiting our site! Please get to know Zoe and the White Family better by reading Our Story. Like George Whitefield during the First Great Awakening, we feel that there is a great need for full-time vocational evangelists to be sent out to declare the Gospel boldly in the "highways and hedges" (Luke 14:23).
We are currently praying and searching for a team of Monthly Ministry Partners and One-Time Special Gift Partners to help Zoe continue to "do the work of an evangelist" on a full-time vocational basis. Zoe's typical weekly schedule consists of preaching the Gospel to sinners on the street, making disciples through leading local Bible studies, distributing free Bibles and Christian books in person and online, publishing Topical Audio Bible and evangelism training videos online, and shepherding believers at Kerusso. Every gift sustains our family to spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth. Click on the Donate button below to partner with us today!
Spiritual edification, doctrinal accountability, and evangelistic encouragement are provided by our local church at Kerusso Baptist Church, while financial oversight and donations processing is provided by our partners at The Ministry of Unification (SFOI).
