A Little About Us…

If you haven’t had a chance, we invite you to take a look around our website to get a better idea of who we are and what we are about.

M3 Ministries is a 508(c)(1)(a) nonprofit newly founded by Doug and Frankie Main. We started M3 because we have a passion to help the church be the church. After more than two decades of pastoral ministry, we have seen some significant ways we can help strengthen local churches – so that they will be everything Christ meant for them to be.

As you may already know by now, we recently moved to St. Joseph from Los Angeles, where Doug has pastored for over 24 years and been a professor at Eternity Bible College for almost 15. A little over a year ago the Lord began to stir within us a vision for a broader, more expansive kind of ministry. We wanted our family to be a part of a church on a similar journey, so we made the decision to move to the Midwest (where Doug is originally from) to be a part of Word of Life Church (WOLC) and the ministry of Brian and Peri Zahnd. We have been welcomed and embraced by the Zahnds, Pastor Derek Vreeland, and the leadership team at WOLC. They are including us in the ministry of the church – and are walking with us as we move forward into this new work the Lord is leading us into.

M3 Ministries is a threefold ministry of education, encouragement, and engagement. These three ministries are what we are all about – in order to further God’s kingdom movement in the world through His church.


Would you consider becoming a partner with us as we seek to further God’s kingdom by strengthening local churches through affordable education, pastoral encouragement, and community engagement?


Our Current Projects

Your investment in M3 Ministries will allow us make a real difference in the lives of both individuals and churches by further developing, expanding, and growing our three new ministries.

MINISTRY #1: ENCOURAGEMENT

We have started a ministry of care and encouragement for those who often feel hurting and alone in their Christian journey, with a specific focus upon pastors and church leaders.

Click here to get a glimpse of our vision and heart for this ministry…

This aspect of M3 is primarily pastoral in nature. We are a resource and relationship for people – and pastors in particular – who need someone to listen, care, and be there for them. We are meeting with these men and women (in person and by phone) to provide encouragement for them in their unique situations and circumstances.

Your investment in M3 will allow us…

To provide ongoing care and encouragement for these men and women. This part of M3 is currently growing and expanding. The recent Water to Wine Gathering hosted at Word of Life Church allowed us to meet men and women from all over the world. We were able to hear their stories, make connections, and build relationships that will allow us to walk alongside them into the future. In addition, we created a Water to Wine Facebook Group that is at 645 members and growing. This group allows us to keep a daily connection to many of the people we are seeking to care for and encourage.

To create a pastor care fund. A project close to our heart is to create a fund for pastors and their families to provide for them in times of need. The goal of this fund would be to allow pastors and their families to receive the refreshment, direction, and counseling they may need at crucial times in their ministries. We want to be able to send pastors and their families to professional counselors/spiritual directors, retreats, conferences, and other programs designed on making their home solid. We would also desire to offer a financial assistance gift to pastors who may be transitioning through a tumultuous life change. We believe one of the keys to strong, healthy churches is strong, healthy church leaders – so we want to have the resources available to help them pursue the health they so often need.

MINISTRY #2: EDUCATION

A second aspect of M3 is to expand upon our passion to provide affordable, Christ-centered, church-based education.

Along with our ongoing role of teaching online classes through Eternity Bible College, we are in the process of developing a Training Center based at Word of Life Church. Your investment in M3 will allow us to provide the following educational resources:

Certificate: In partnership with Pastor Derek Vreeland, we are in the process of developing a certificate program through Word of Life Church. In our years as both a pastor and a professor, we have found that many desire to learn and grow but don’t always want to pursue a college degree. Our certificate program will involve both online and on-campus learning and training.

Classes: We believe people learn in a variety of ways, so we want to match learning resources with learning opportunities. Through our partnerships with both Word of Life Church and Eternity Bible College, we will be developing classes – both online and on-campus – to provide learning resources to meet people where they are.

Podcast: An exciting opportunity exists for us to launch a podcast that will allow us to discuss theology, pastoral ministry, church life and mission, and contemporary issues with a broader audience.

MINISTRY #3: ENGAGEMENT

The third facet of M3 is all about helping local churches form purposeful partnerships for community engagement and service.

Click here to read more about our heart for this ministry…

As the Lord would have it, He has connected us to a pastor and his family who share our vision for this aspect of M3. More importantly, he has the experience and expertise that would allow us to create and cultivate these church partnerships. A fully funded ministry would allow us to hire him to lead this part of M3 Ministries.

Your investment in M3 will allow us to make this a reality – and in turn form the partnerships between churches that will help them work together for the embodiment and advancement of the gospel in their communities.


Will you partner with us to help the church BE the church?


How can our churches be healthy if their leaders are hurting?

How can our churches be everything they are meant to be if their members are not equipped?

How can our churches be bringing about real change in their communities if they are not working together?

Your partnership with M3 Ministries will help bring…

  • encouragement and care to pastors and church leaders,
  • education and equipping to church members, and
  • engagement and service to communities through church partnerships.

We are looking for…

INITIAL PARTNERS – your gift of $500, $1000, or more would allow us to jumpstart this brand new ministry.

ONGOING PARTNERS – your monthly commitment of $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, or more will allow us to continue the work that has been started. No gift is too small!

ENCOURAGEMENT PARTNERS – your one-time donation in any amount would go a long way to further the ministry.
