Speed the Light began in 1944 after Ralph Harris, then head of the National Youth Ministries department, prayed for a way to give A/G students the opportunity to help missionaries in their work. Now, by providing ministry equipment to our missionaries, STL is training the young people of America to develop individual ownership of the Great Commission as they help our missionaries spread the gospel message to the lost.
Today, Speed the Light is one of the most effective student initiated missions ministries in the church world. Assemblies of God students have accepted a great responsibility to voluntarily sacrifice and raise funds to purchase transportation and communications equipment to missionaries across the United States and in over 150 countries around the world.
Since its establishment in 1944, STL has raised close to 200 million dollars for missionary equipment around the globe.
