Overcoming Adversity

In times of adversity our faith becomes evident! Our character is revealed in times of adversity. We are in the midst of what seems to be the worst thing ever. The global pandemic is making its way into every arena of life, and both the best and worst of humanity is being revealed.

I’ve had numerous calls with people asking me “Is all this leading to the second coming of Jesus?” My answer will surprise you. I always say the same thing. “YES, everything,...

The Warfare Intensifies

The warfare is not only the personal sickness, but we have had opposition from...

Thus far we have been able to share the message in 73 venues to an estimated crowd of 18,600 people where at least 12,500 individuals have indicated their decisions for Christ.
