Based out of Southern California the NEW Freedom Fighter International Training Center was established by Jay Bartlett with the hopes of equipping the Body of Christ on how to proclaim the gospel, drive out demons, heal the sick and minister to those with broken hearts. We have seen a tremendous need to educate the Body of Christ on subjects that most Bible schools and theological schools are largely ignoring.
Jay says, "I know there is a urgent need to train a spiritual special forces unit to fight the good fight. I graduated from a theological school that rarely delved into the deeper elements of the faith. Sadly, I wasn't taught how to cast out demons, how to raise the dead, how to heal the sick, and so many other things in my time of studies. This is a spiritual crime and I am determined to allow everyone interested on how to do the works of the Kingdom of God the opportunity to learn and to be equipped."
The NEW Freedom Fighter International Training Center is a one-of-a-kind training school that equips minister and layman alike on the deeper mysteries of the faith that are rarely explored by most theological seminaries. We specialize in training the church in areas of the faith that are needed in our modern day.
What We Believe
We embrace the essentials of the faith including the triune nature of God, the virgin birth, the sinless life, the shedding of holy blood, the death on a cross, the burial, the resurrection, the ascension and second coming of Jesus and that justification is by faith alone in the Lord Jesus --God in the flesh.
Jay Bartlett is an ambassador for the Lord Jesus Christ. Born in New York, USA and raised in South Florida, USA, Jay committed his life to the Lord Jesus Christ as a teenager after reading a booklet by the Dr. Billy Graham and soon surrendered to God's call to enter the gospel ministry. A few months later, Jay experienced the fire of the Holy Spirit which has empowered his service to Christ. Jay has also been ordained as a minister of the gospel by a fellowship of believers out of California.
Upon answering the call of God, Jay prepared initially for ministry, by attending the University of the Cumberlands, studying Sacred Scripture, theology, and the biblical languages. He is a graduate of the Criswell College in Dallas, Texas where he received his degree in Biblical Studies. Jay also received additional training from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
For over 30 years Jay has traveled the globe --North America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, Central and South America-- pursing the call that God had placed upon his life as a teenager to publicly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, cast out demons and heal the sick. He has proclaimed the gospel on the streets and in open air public meetings all over the world resulting in thousands of conversions to Christ. Moreover, he has personally trained many thousands in the areas of evangelism, deliverance and healing ministry.
Jay currently serves the global church as an apostle within the Church of the Cross based in Southern California.
