Guest Centered Service

13 May , 2016  

Imagine with me for a moment if you will that you are a first time guest at an apostolic church.

Holiness and Worship

16 Feb , 2016  

Our church has been in a holiness series for the past couple of weeks. I have said, light- heartedly, that holiness series usually manifests two views and either make people scared, or glad because that under-achieving saint in the next pew over finally gets to hear how they should be dressing!

Leaders Don’t Happen By Accident

2 Dec , 2015  

Leaders don’t happen by accident. Nor does becoming a great leader just happen randomly or by mere coincidence. There’s not a “big bang” in the cosmos and suddenly a great leader is born.
