Shortly after making Jesus the Lord of his life in Elkhart, IN, Pastor Kolterman began preaching at a Main Street storefront mission. His first missions outreach was to Cairo, Egypt in 1980. Influenced by Word of Faith teachers Kenneth E. Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Charles Capps and Marilyn Hickey, he taught the Word with tent crusade evangelists to the Navajos and began broadcasting a Gospel program called “Success” on FM and international shortwave radio on the LeSea network. He pastored Word of Faith churches for several years in the North Judson, IN area before joining Dr. Lester Sumrall’s ministry in 1983. In various capacities, Pastor Kolterman has since traveled to more than 50 nations, teaching, preaching, feeding the poor and hungry, and administrating the work of God.
Pastor Kolterman served thirteen years in the ministry with Dr. Lester Sumrall, and eight years as the first World Operations Director of LeSEA Global Feed the Hungry. From its inception in 1987, Feed the Hungry grew into a global relief outreach distributing more than $20,000,000 worth of food and other aid annually. Pastor Kolterman holds credentials with Provident Ministries International, Ltd. and is a member in good standing of Provident Ministerial Network.
