This is a reminder to all preachers, teachers and ministers of CGMF.
In our last Ministers Training session we discussed licensing beyond Covenant's local covering. In that discussion I expressed the importance of many to be in a position to expand and develop their ministry within the fabric of a larger covering. Also, it is my intention that whoever might move on as pastor or Spiritual Administrator for the fellowship to be required to hold such credentials with Full Gospel Restoration of which I, and the ministry are affiliated with. I believe this is both healthy, and vital for our future. Especially after some of the circumstances of which we have dealt with in 2019, which were not easy to deal with.
I expressed to you all in our meeting of my thanksgiving of heart for FGRMC, its ministers and churches. I also related their confidence in your pastor, his ministry and talents. Calling upon me to be a part of the Counsel of Elders, serve as President of FBC, and licensing me as a Bishop. Given all this and more I asked you all to pray concerning applying for license with FGRMC. I want you to know you all will be glad you did.
I have spoken to the Shepherd Leaders and they know I will propose a change in our by-laws that the Pastor, Spiritual Administrator and Minister of Music. Each will be required to receive license with FGRMC in the future after our annual meeting in February. This I believe will help us in the future, and give the church protection from a truly covenant partner in FGRMC.
I trust you will pray with me as we go and grow, and expand this ministry beyond its current structure. Becoming a part of greater umbrella of ministry in the years to come.
Blessings to all of you for your commitment, love and prayers.
