Young ministry

Our story is just emerging. The Run to Me Foundation was set up in early 2017. In a very short time, we have witnessed the Lord work at a tremendous pace, and we marvel how He has brought this ministry into existence ex-nihilo. All glory and honor belong to Him!



Two new Christians

Our story began when the founders of our ministry – Fredrik Sandberg and his wife Gemma Sandberg heard the gospel for the first time at Saylorville Church, Des Moines, Iowa, and became Christians as mid-thirty somethings in the summer of 2015.

Sharing the good news

Having been of the world for so long – and knowing the futility of life without Christ – God placed in Fredrik and Gemma a passion for sharing the gospel so that other lost souls might come to know the true reality of life and their need for a Savior also.

“Fredrik and I are eternally grateful to Pastor Pat Nemmers from Saylorville Church for loving us first; for leading us to Christ; and for helping us fall in love with God’s Word.” – Gemma Sandberg.



The call

In 2016 – the year after their salvation – it became apparent to Fredrik and Gemma that the Lord was calling them to establish a ministry that would involve the internet and evangelism.

The role of God’s Word

After prolonged periods of time spent in the Word of God – Gemma presented an initial idea to the pastoral staff of Saylorville Church to create a website to house Christian testimonies. From that point, the Lord began unfolding His bigger plan for the ministry providentially and through continued-time in His Word.

Why “Run To Me”

The name of our ministry relates to Gemma Sandberg’s salvation story when the Lord Jesus Christ impressed on her heart the invitation to come to Him. She responded by writing down “I come to you running”.

We pray that God will use the fruits of our ministry to cause others to respond to His gospel, run to Christ, and experience the joy of forgiveness and eternal peace with God.

We have incorporated the cross into our logo because the gospel is the beating heart of our ministry.
