Aim/Vision of the UK Area Head
I took over in February 2016 with the firm belief that there is the need for the churches to grow numerically and spiritually. I believe this because, I can see many people who are not saved and as Ministers of God, I believe we are called to save a ‘Soul for Christ’ and to watch over them until that Glorious Day. My aim is to work with my colleague Pastors and church council members to reach out to the unsaved and to keep them in the house of God; a people ready to be harvested by Christ.
The Bible says ‘With God all things are possible’ (Matt 19:26) which also means ‘all things are possible for them that believe in God’ (Mark 11:24). The good news is that we are a people who believe in God; therefore all things are to be possible for us through faith in our prayer to God.
Men and women of valour, I believe it is time to rise up, shake off the bits and pieces and take a stand for God. Amen.
Don’t forget, the church (Ecclesia) is the people, ‘the called out ones’.
Provide Christ-like leadership – humility, give a voice to the church and you will see amazing results.
