Blog Update

What has happened to the posts on this blog?

That's a good question, now here is the answer.

We have been slowly migrating everything over to the Tennessee Church of God of Prophecy State Website and more fully use the social media opportunities to help get the word out about events and happenings across the state.

Although this is my personal blog, often church events overshadow what I would like to do with it...namely to post my own ministry thoughts, values and opinions.  Often my personal opinions are in stark contrast to fellow ministers whom I love and appreciate.  I don't want to endanger them or hurt their feelings by posting something that upsets them in the middle of church updates.

Therefore, from today on, this page will become PERSONAL and all of the State of Tennessee Related events and news will appear on the LATEST NEWS tab on the website.  You can find the website by typing the url or by clicking this link provided for you:

REMEMBER, click on the 'LATEST NEWS' tab at the top left of the page.

God bless you, in invite you to check back often.

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.
