The Boone Foundation

“God . . brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us” (2 Corinthians 5:18-20 NLT).

Background of the Boone Foundation

Empowering, Enabling, Equipping Others to Serve Their Generation for Jesus Christ

Bishop Boone achieved international fame in the 1990s when he began speaking to tens of thousands of men who were assembled in American sports stadiums for the Promise Keepers Christian men’s movement. In all, he delivered 50 powerful messages to more than a million men. He spoke more times than almost anyone else other than the founder and future Hall-of-Fame college football coach Bill McCartney, who credited Bishop Boone with a major impact on his own life, and especially on his marriage.

However, before Promise Keepers, before he published best-selling books, before he was chairman of the board of March for Jesus in the United States that mobilized millions to pray, before he founded mixed-race ministries on the campuses of Black colleges and a multiracial denomination called Fellowship of International Churches, before all that—

He was a Vietnam veteran who met Jesus face-to-face and was undone in the presence of God’s glory.

He was a proud man broken down by the reality of his own sin and the need to get right with God.

He dedicated the rest of his life to a ministry of serving others.

He became a husband who loves his wife so extravagantly that it still astonishes other men—45 years after they were married.

He befriended the lowly and took personal responsibility for lifting them out of the gutter—drugs, prison, poverty and despair—to become pastors and leaders who now serve Jesus with a joyful heart of love.

He became a father and a spiritual father who pastored and discipled people day-by-day into pastors and leaders—men and women of God who today are honored by their cities and nations and among their peers for their marriages, churches, benevolence, and private integrity.

UNIFIED 1. Pray for divine help to bring glory to Jesus. God, open our eyes to see how Christians can raise the standard of brotherhood and end racism in our generation as slaves of God (1 Peter 2:16). Prayer at Promise Keepers Indianapolis with 70,000 men.UNIFIED 2. Pride is a sin that separates us into racists. But brokenness brings us together as one. We become a city of God (Hebrews 11:10) when we don’t serve Jesus for His hands (for what He can give us) but for His feet (how we can walk like Him). UNIFIED 3. Heaven has no racial divisions. Jesus prayed “in earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). When you are born again, you recognize that with God there is no respect of persons (Job 34:19; James 2:1). He loves us all the same. UNIFIED 4. We surrender to Jesus like a slave to a master (1 Peter 2:18). If we are enslaved or mistreated, God looks at how we were going through it more than what we are going through. He uses natural examples to teach spiritual realities. We serve Jesus by serving others.
BLACK SELF-GENOCIDE ON CBN NEWS. Whites have historically done a lot for Blacks in the midst of others’ injustices. Blacks need to stop demanding respect and return to Christ. Evolution and Planned Parenthood feed false narratives that devalue Blacks but we know a different biblical history of America. BISHOP WELLINGTON BOONE ON FOX & FRIENDS. Black Lives Matter disagrees with everything in his book BLACK SELF-GENOCIDE because he says the source of life is Jesus Christ. When he grew up in the ghetto it was just as dangerous then as it is today. It can change because his life changed when he was saved. WASHING TONY EVANS' FEET. Black-on-Black discrimination was exposed at a Promise Keepers’ pastors conference when Wellington Boone spontaneously washed the feet of fellow Black pastor Tony Evans. Men ran from the crowd with water bottles and saw two Black men demonstrate true reconciliation. LOVE DEFEATS TERRORISM. Jentezen Franklin praised God as he heard Wellington Boone talk on Matthew 24:12. Jesus said that “because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Terrorism is a spirit of hatred that robs our love "so that hate would rule over the culture.” We win culture with love.

"Wellington epitomizes the phrase , 'Fall on the rock and be broken.' Only through brokenness can the fragrance fill the room."

Ricky Skaggs, Recording Artist

"This is an incredible man of God. Every time I'm in the presence of this guy, I sense two things: This is a man who is truly a man of tremendous faith, and he's a man who is truly fearless."
