Pastor's Desk - Fasting and Praying

The practice of fasting has been observed by the religious community which has informed Christianity ever since we can recall. Moses fasted for forty days and forty nights and in that time wrote the Ten Commandments as given by God (Ex. 34:28). Daniel decided that he was going to fast for three weeks by refusing to eat meat and the choice food of the Babylonians as a means of protest and preservation of his faith. (Dan 10:3) Esther had to make a grave decision, which was to petition the King, her husband on behalf of her people.

Pastor's Desk - Evangelistic Campaign

One of the mandate given by Jesus to the Church is to evangelize (Matt 28:19), in fact to make disciples. The Church has employed different methods over the years to accomplish this goal and one of these is an evangelistic campaign. This year the church has decided to hold another of these meetings in the church. This will run from Sunday April 7 to Saturday April 13.

May I remind you again that the main purpose of having these meetings is that we can further our outreach of evangelizing and discipling the lost. 

Pastor's Desk - Welcome to the family

The months of May and June are usually observed as Family Months. During these months we specifically celebrate mothers and fathers and to some extent the whole family. It is a great time for many persons as those who are biological mothers and fathers are celebrated and affirmed. It’s an opportunity for children to let their mothers and/or their fathers know how much they love them and that’s a good thing. It may even be a good time for those who mainly have a commercial interest.

Pastor's Desk - Premarital Preparation

As we continue our focus on the Family during the month of June, allow me to share with you some excerpts from a broadcast on Christ For Today on Sunday May 26.

The programme was in the form of an Interview with Rev Donovan Thomas, an Associate of the Family Life Ministries and Pastor of the Calvary Gospel Assembly, and Trevor Edwards who also serves as Chair of the JBU Family Life Commission. So here we go.
