MISSIONARY PROFILE
CHRIS KILLEN
MINISTRY:
Missionary To The Addicted
HOME CHURCH:
Lisburn Free Presbyterian Church
ON FIELD SINCE:
May 2002
PROFILE:
After my conversion to Christ in August 1989, I became involved in a street ministry – bringing the gospel to young people who were taking drink and drugs. For a number of years I had the joy of leading an outreach team that consisted mainly of young Christians. We travelled all over Northern Ireland and further afield, distributing tracts and sharing the message of Christ. Then the Lord spoke to me through His Word about full-time ministry. After I completed training in Bible College I was accepted to work under the Mission Board.

There are 2 main aspects to the ministry the Lord has called me to: First, there is Prevention. That involves speaking in schools, youth meetings etc. – warning young people about the dangers of drugs. One of the PowerPoint presentations I have used extensively is entitled: “The Truth about Drugs.” It is a Bible based drugs awareness presentation. It’s essential that young people understand very clearly what the Bible teaches about drugs and alcohol.

Then there is Intervention. I spend a lot of my time speaking to addicts and their families; seeking to tell them of the hope of the gospel. I often share my own testimony, relating how the Lord saved me from a life of drugs and addiction. Ministering to addicts is very often a demanding and difficult work.  It is therefore a tremendous blessing to be supported by and work under a church that is passionate about reaching those in addiction. Oftentimes when I am speaking to someone who is held in the bondage of addiction, it feels like I am looking in a mirror – it’s as if I’m looking at myself before I was saved. It brings me to reflect upon the life I once lived but also causes me to rejoice in the grace of God that has set me free. “By the grace of God I am what I am…” I Corinthians 15:10.

It is a wonderful blessing to see lives changed by the power of Christ and I count it a great privilege to serve the Lord in this ministry to the addicted.
