Statewide Revival

May 14-20, 2017


Thank the Lord for another wonderful Statewide Revival! We’re thankful for each and every service held across the state of Alabama this May. There was anointed singing and preaching and wonderful times of prayer in the altar.

A special thank you to Sister Mary Shelton and family for coming to minister once again. She is always such a blessing and we are grateful for all the sacrifices made and the miles they travel for the Lord and His Church. God bless them all!

State Evangelism Day

May 20, 2017


May 20, 2017 will forever be a precious memory of The Church of God in Alabama; one more to add to my collection. As the State Evangelism Coordinator, I and all who were present sat in a heavenly place together as we assembled at The Church of God in Athens. Upon arrival, as I entered the sanctuary, I noticed on the wall a banner made by the Athens Church that displayed this year’s Evangelism theme “Burn Fire Burn.” This was a wonderful way for the Athens church to show their love for Evangelism. The spirit of the Lord was present from the opening until the closing of the meeting. I am humbled at how the members were such willing workers together. Sister Glenda Membreño and Sister Liz Denard were fantastic with interpreting the bilingual part of the service. The singers were all wonderful and blessed us with heavenly hymns that filled our souls. The ministry was awesome as was every message, beginning with the very first one delivered by Brother David Membreño, pastor of the Athens church. As each minister followed, every sermon connected from one to the other, even to the last delivered by Brother Billy Allen. I humbly and gracefully appreciate all who were so willing to serve. Brother Cook moderated the service. Brother Jerry and Sister Betsy Cox so faithfully filled in for those who were unable to attend. Sister Mary Shelton and her family finished the State Revival with us. Her message was soul-stirring and was a tremendous blessing. Sister Horne had a great fun time but, sad to report, the ladies lost. Do not fear, the men of the church were winners by a lot of points.  Thank you all for attending—we had a total attendance of 71! Thank you, Athens church, for hosting and feeding us!

New Field Coordinator & State Evangelism Coordinator,

Family Camp

July 12-16, 2017


Family Camp this year was directed by Josh and Britney Anders. Many thanks to them for all of the hard work, planning and preparation put into making this a blessed and successful camp. The theme this year was, “Whom Say Ye That I Am” and the guest speaker was General VLB Coordinator Josh Farthing of Georgia. Praise the Lord for 126 campers and staff present and for all of the blessings bestowed through this wonderful week.


State Convention

July 21-23, 2017


The theme for this year’s Alabama State Convention was “The Vision is Yet for an Appointed Time.” Our Guest Speaker was Brother Rob Hawkins, World Missions Coordinator, and he blessed us with anointed and timely messages. Thank the Lord for all 16 churches being represented in this Convention and all of our pastor’s present. Our total registration was 213 this year. We thank the Lord for all of the good singing, preaching, praying and fellowship, and especially for the wonderful outpouring of His Spirit upon us on Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful Convention with good love and unity working among God’s good people in the state of Alabama and it will not soon be forgotten.
