“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” Luke 4:18-19
The Gokees are Founders and Directors of Frontline Ministries International established in 1995 and based in Massillon, Ohio. As senior leaders, they are the Pastors of Frontline Worship Center. Additionally, they are the Founders and Directors of Redemption for Life, a ministry of FMI which rescues and restores hurting people from human trafficking and other social atrocities.
The Gokees love the Presence of God and seek the reality of Psalm 27:4 in their lives. They are lovers of Jesus first and foremost. With simple hearts to see revival and spiritual awakening across the earth, Bill and Mary Pat are dynamic apostolic and prophetic leaders in the body of Christ. With a call to the nations and deep compassion for the lost and hurting, they have led numerous international team missions since 1996 with multitudes saved and restored. They have established churches and pioneered works that are wells of revival and truly transformational in many countries.
The Gokees’ ministry is marked by powerful worship, preaching and teaching, miraculous healings, deliverances, and prophetic releases. As “watchmen on the walls,” Bill and Mary Pat have established a Healing Room, a House of Prayer for intercession and worship, and Frontline Training Center. With nurturing and fiery hearts of a spiritual mother and father, the Gokees have equipped many sons and daughters to live and minister in the supernatural. They love to train believers to become part of the new breed of missionaries to “make disciples of all nations” within their spheres of influence locally and globally. As reformers, they raise up revivalists, worshippers, and harvesters to fulfill the Great Commission. From remote villages in Africa to the expansive cities of Asia, the Gokees are visionaries and forerunners who seek to expand the Kingdom of God wherever they go in these last days. Luke 4:18-19 propels them both to “never quit” and “stay low,” which is their joy. This is what this husband and wife team believes. This is what these pioneers do.
