What is CDM?


Carpe Diem Ministries, Inc.

Carpe Diem is Latin for “Seize the Day”.  It is relative to, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”

1 Thessalonians 5:5 (KJV) – Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.


Carpe Diem’s Mission is to seek and save the lost.  People need the Lord.  Carpe Diem is taking the gospel of Christ to people in this world.  The evangelical nature of Carpe Diem reaches out to the lost where they are.  Carpe Diem has a prison ministry to reach those who are bound by law to a jail cell, a recovery outreach to speak and minister to those bound by addictions and an e-ministry to reach people captive to their electronic devices :-).


2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (KJV) – But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Carpe Diem sees the future of this world as bleak and uncertain.  The Living Water that flows through Carpe Diem is unlimited.  There is enough Love for everyone in the World and Carpe Diem will be a distribution channel of Love.  There is no limit to the grandiosity of Carpe Diem’s outreach and vision.


Carpe Diem belongs to God.  Jehovah Jireh directs the path of Carpe Diem.  He opens the doors for this ministry and provides the means for its success.

Carpe Diem Ministries is a non-profit organization formed in accordance with the corporate laws of the State of Georgia, USA.  Carpe Diem Ministry is a vision God gave to me, the author of this website and registered Director of the legal organization.  I am Chad DeLay, a Christian, a father of two children, a minister of the good news that Jesus died on a cross so that you may have Eternal Life.  Carpe Diem was going to be mostly about me and how God saved my life from a destructive path and certain death.  When I formed this ministry, God peacefully and bluntly told me that it is never about me.  All that God has done in my life is to bring Glory to the Father.  All that Carpe Diem is going to do will bring Glory to the Father.

John 14:31 (KJV) – But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
