Don Touchton-President, Chairman of the Board, Ministry Coordinator , Teacher

 Don Touchton, retired pastor and self employed insurance agent, began Good Word Ministries about ten years ago, (1998) as a preaching, teaching, training and writing ministry. Over the years it has evolved to include work on the mission field.  Our primary task at hand in the field of world missions is the work we are doing in partnership with India Gospel Ministries. Don has great aspirations for the support role we play with the work in India. Our goal is to train all 33 of the pastors of IGM in the next three years, providing tuition-free pastoral training for the dedicated pastors of IGM and to continue with a tuition free pastor training institute for all of IGM's future pastors. Secondly, our plans are to put a well in the yard of every tribal church of the IGM in the next three years to provide a clean, healthy water supply for the villages as a testimony of our Lord's love for these forgotten people. Don is a dedicated man of God who loves nothing better than preaching and teaching the word of God.
