“Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.” – Job 8:7
As I travel throughout the United Pentecostal Church participating in Church Growth Conferences, Camp Meetings and other services, I am often asked about the church my wife and I pioneered in Newport News, Virginia. This book covers some of the glorious, and not so glorious, highlights of our time as pioneer church planters. Without hesitation I would have you to know that the church planting years of our life were the most enjoyable. Elsy and I have found nothing else to equal the joy associated with church planting. To have been called of God to start a church and watch it grow is the highlight of our ministerial life.
