Business Editors

OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 17, 2000

Lone Wolf Energy Inc. (Symbol:LWEI) announced that Dr. Bobby Boyles has been recruited to be ChurchLink.com's president and chief operating officer. Lone Wolf announced on April 3, 2000 that it had signed a letter of intent to acquire ChurchLink.com and has plans for it to become an important independent business unit for LWEI.

An online communications hub for members of subscribing churches, ChurchLink.com enables members to be in control of updating and publishing their own information such as listing family members, family pictures, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, occupations and church activities. It also enables intricate Web-based communications between members, churches, organizations, institutions, denominations and missionaries.

ChurchLink.com's objective is to be the leading Web-based directory service provider to churches in North America and a vital Christian communications tool worldwide. The selection of such a well-respected and high-visibility church leader as Dr. Boyles as CEO underscores Lone Wolf's management's commitment to ensuring that ChurchLink.com achieves its aggressive goal.

For almost 30 years, Dr. Boyles has been dedicated to the ministry. He has been a pastor of four of the fastest growing churches in America. In addition, Dr. Boyles has developed a worldwide ministry called Wingspread Ministries. He has been one of the most sought after speakers in America for the past 15 years and has spoken in more than 500 churches in North America and around the world. He also regularly hosted a television program for the Trinity Broadcasting Network and has authored five books including the national best seller "Everyday Victory for Everyday People." He has been a featured speaker at the annual Southern Baptist worldwide convention three times. In the early nineties, Dr. Boyles was the national chairman of the Committee on Nominations for the 15 million-member Southern Baptist denomination.

"The potential for ChurchLink.com is staggering. I firmly believe that ChurchLink.com will be the vehicle that will enable church ministries to reach the greatest audience possible," said Dr. Boyles. "The power of the Internet will provide a platform for communications that no single church or any denominational organization currently possesses. As we build ChurchLink.com into a large, worldwide organization involved with the various denominations, we will be able to touch the lives of millions and millions of people."

In 1994 Dr. Boyles became the founding pastor of Eagle Heights Church in Oklahoma City. The church began with approximately 400 people and by 1999 it had grown to an attendance of more than 1,000 with a high attendance of 4,200. Previously, Dr. Boyles was pastor of the First Baptist Church, Moore, Okla. During his tenure, the Sunday School attendance grew from 1,000 to more than 3,000. The church also grew to be the leading church in Oklahoma in Cooperative Program Missions giving during his pastorate.

Earlier, Dr. Boyles served as a pastor from 1983 to 1987 of Retta Baptist Church in Burleson, Texas. During this time period, Retta was reported by the Research Services Division of the Baptist Sunday School Board to be one of the fastest growing open country churches in America. Dr. Boyles served as outreach and evangelism pastor at Immanuel Baptist Church, Rogers, Ark. from 1978 through 1983. Immanuel, at this time, was one of the fastest growing churches in Arkansas.

Over the years, Dr. Boyles has been deeply involved in church-related fund-raising activities. For that reason, he believes that ChurchLink.com will become a vital funding source for sponsoring churches. Through carefully monitored hyperlinks, affinity advertising will allow specific merchandisers to market products and services to members of subscribing ChurchLink.com congregations. A percentage of the advertising revenues from ChurchLink.com's e-commerce profit center will be shared with the participating church and other mission projects.

Dr. Boyles has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ouachita Baptist University, a Master of Arts in Religious Education from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from the Southern Baptist Center of Biblical Studies.

"The upcoming closing of Zenex Communications is also proceeding on schedule," said Marc W. Newman, president of Lone Wolf. "The strategic fit between Zenex and ChurchLink.com will be especially strong. The new ChurchLink.com telephone number is 405/290-7950 and the Web site is currently being expanded and enhanced."
