"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." - Assemblies of God National Youth Department Website
Speed the Light purchases evangelism equipment for missionaries around the world. Throughout the history of Speed the Light, the Arkansas District has given more to this ministry than any other district in the nation.
