Sheaves for Christ

Dear WV District Church Family,

With tremendous joy I write to you today because of the marvelous works of the Lord. We have just finished West Virginia District Camps a couple of weeks ago. I am glad to report to you that at least 61 people received the baptism of the Holy Ghost in our two weeks of camp. To God be all of the glory! Many of our young people were touched by the hand of God. I watched as night after night, young people laid in the altars, with tears streaming down their faces, as God began to move on them in a very real way. Parents, pastors, and saints, you can be confident in the fact that we have a great group of young people in the West Virginia District!

To all of our young people and youth leaders, Tiphanii and I love each and every one of you very much. We believe in you, your call of God, and your future. I challenge you in the Holy Ghost to keep living for God with all of your heart, mind, soul, and spirit. You CAN make it, you CAN do it, and you CAN be mightily used by God.  I challenge you to take your relationship with God to a deeper level of consecration.

Just a note of reminder to all that ordered CDs from the second week of camp and have not received them as of yet: We are working diligently on them and will have them to you shortly. Thanks for your patience in this matter.

Now I come to something that is very urgent as well as very important. The Sheaves for Christ deadline is August 29, 2010. Thank you for all who have already made pledges. We are believing God for a great Sheaves for Christ offering in 2010. We are asking you to help us in this matter. It is not too late to give an offering or even start raising money. We need to make this very last weekend a very important one and make one more strong push to raise money. All of the money will go to support the Kingdom of God 100%. It is a great cause that is worth giving sacrificially towards. Let us all Live to Give in 2010!

Live to Give,
Justin Meadors
WV District Youth Secretary

WV UPCI Men’s Conference was awesome!

WV UPCI Mens Conference 2010-08-14
Pastor Bill Douglas, from Virginia, was daytime speaker at WV UPCI Mens Conference (2010-08-14).

The daytime speaker was Pastor Bill Douglas, from Virginia (seen preaching and teaching in the photo above) and the evening speaker was Pastor Scott Graham, from Missouri. Both of these preachers were mightily used of God to minister to the men under God’s unction and anointing. The DVDs and CDs of the conference are available for those who missed it. Contact Riverside Ministries in Morgantown to place your order.

Are you ready for a world without antibiotics?

Are you ready for a world without antibiotics? | Society | The Guardian.

This UK site's article shows how the era of antibiotics will soon be coming to a close. The days of people seeking doctors first and God last (or maybe not at all) seem numbered. What are your thoughts?

Revival in Ohio Valley

All I can say is WOW! Jesus Christ is so awesome.

Two received the Holy Ghost. Deaf ears opened. Stomach problems healed. Bell's palsy healed. Pain in hip gone. Heart pain gone. Devils cast out, and the Holy Ghost came in. Joy restored. Past hurts and failures replaced with the peace of the Holy Ghost. And it's not over yet. God is so AWESOME! Here we come, devil. It's time to take a journey and start singing "Nothing Can Compare" and tell the devil you have "No Vacancy."

All this happened in Wheeling, WV where we are holding ongoing revival services with Pastor David Forsythe and the great saints of Abundant Life Tabernacle.

Superintendent’s Communiqué

August 5, 2010

Dear West Virginia District Family

It was so good to see so many of you during our recent camp meetings. 2010 will be reported as one of our best in recent time. At least 61 received the Holy Ghost and 1,000 were in attendance on Friday night. Registrations for both Sunday School and Youth camp was an increase over last year. Our leaders both weeks served you well. Although it has already been said, I want to again express thanks to Bro. Greg Hurley Construction for his good work on the tabernacle roof and new ceiling. Both look great!

Please note that we ordained three wonderful couples during camp meeting on Wednesday night: Bro. & Sis. David Greeever, Bro. & Sis. Robert Fazzalore, and Bro. & Sis. Anthony Moss.
