Team Thrust Ministries was inaugurated in the late 1960’s by Reverend Lester Pritchard, who was at the time reaching out to the Japanese Nation. He drew pastors and workers from every denomination to facilitate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Japan. Japan had not yet seen in its history a major outpouring. In the beginning it was called Japan Thrust and in the 1970’s as other nations also weighed on Les Pritchard’s heart the organization became known as TEAM THRUST MINISTRIES.

The Ministry went forth to IRELAND drawing the body of Christ to unity and life in the Holy Spirit continuing many years after Brother Les went on to be with the Lord. The organization facilitated many ministries to work in other lands. Pastor Ivan Fox has now taken on the charge of Team Thrust Ministries and continues to minister in the nations and in North America.
