GSJ Milestone

For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 3:13 (KJV)

Greetings my fellow bloggers and followers!! It is with great joy that I share with you a recent milestone in the life of GSJ.

Last Sunday, after a day filled with preaching, praise and receiving three great young men into our congregation, we were blessed to lay hands on seven new deacons. It has been my joy to train these men in matters pertaining to the call, character and conduct of biblical deacons for the past year.

Please pray that these men along with our current deacons will serve both Pastor and people with great diligence, steadfast determination, and unwavering humility. Courtesy of Bro. Armstrong, we share these photos with you. Talk to you soon!!

l to r. Deacons Zimmerman, Barker, Smalls, Buchanon, Chism, Green and Johnson. The picture below feature their wives.

Congrats on your day; however this speaks to successful preaching and pastoring to cultivate, train, and send out seven men to becomes servants known as deacons. WHat a blessing it must be to see the fruit of seeds God has allowed you to plant.

Keep running,
