Emerge Renovation Dedication

Today I was privileged to minister the Word at the Emerge Church of God of Prophecy in Lebanon, Tennessee.  My wife Debra and two grandchildren, Reagan and Madison traveled with me and were present too.

Walking into the new entrance-way and sanctuary were like walking into a brand-new church building.  The church, under the direction of Pastoral Team Larry and Kelly Meadors have overseen what can justly be described as a transformation like nothing I have ever seen.  Gone is the old worn look of much use and in its place a more youthful, vibrant and colorful facility.  I do not have the words to express the change.  If you have ever attended that church, you need to see it now.  Wow!

As always, we received a warm welcome and was so thrilled to see all of the progress of the work there.  Along with old friends, there are a lot of new congregants.  The worship team was excellent and filled with the Spirit  

The ladies of the church honored my wife for her birthday (March 21st) and showed their love to her.  

I am thankful to be a part of a growing, thriving church that has an eye on the future and not the past. Congratulations Pastors Meadors and congregation.  Thank you for allowing me to be with you on such a special day.

Dear Brother,
I am sending you a synopsis of my ministry, and my desire to work in evangelism in your States.
I preached my first message at 12 years old.

I began weekend revivals at 14 and spent my 14th summer in revivals.  My wife and I were National Evangelists working with Elwood Matthews.  I have many years of experience in Revivals.

I have retired from Kentucky state government and wish to evangelize. I wish to do so in your state/territory.
I believe my calling assignment from our Lord is to be a Demonstrator. I truly believe when I preach there will be a d…
