FIRED UP AND READY TO SERVE By Rev. Thomas D. Johnson
Grace be yours and peace from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
I can think of no higher calling for one’s life than service to the Lord Jesus Christ. This service encompassed the whole of life. Our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual capacities are engaged as we join with others to build the Kingdom of God.
I am very grateful to have celebrated my fortieth year in ministry with my Canaan Family. This year has been a tremendous time of reflection on my life and what it has meant to serve the Body of Christ for all these years. read entire message >>
