Jay and Peg Snyder have pastored churches for over 20 years, and are the founders of Passion for Life Ministries. Encounters with the love of Father God brought about the healing and transformation of Jay and Peg’s hearts and their perspective of the Kingdom of Heaven. They now minister out of an anointing of joy and the heavenly Father’s love with a strong prophetic flow. Pastor Jay and Peg have ministered in conferences in the United States and Canada and have been involved in missions work in Mexico, Russia, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Argentina, Chili, Ghana Africa and Europe, strengthening churches, pastors and leaders. Along with a team of others, Jay and Peg have been trained for inner healing prayer ministry through Elijah House and SOZO and have witnessed many hearts dramatically changed through the power of the cross. Passion for Life Ministries is under the covering of the Partners in Harvest network of churches and ministries. Jay and Peg are Regional Coordinators for Partners in Harvest for the Upper Central United States and Central America.
Pastor Jay and Peg are passionate to see the church become effective Ambassadors for Christ and become a true representation of who the Father is. Jay and Peg press for intimacy with the Father, and the transformation of our hearts so that we become the message of reconciliation, grace, mercy and love rather than just speaking about it. “When people meet us, they should encounter God” says Jay. Their desire in ministry is for hearts to be changed through encounters with God. Intimacy with the Father, healing, and transparency of the heart will bring us to a place of moving in the power and grace of the Kingdom of Heaven!
