It’s Here! It’s Conference Time!
Praise the Lord to all of the members and friends of O’Fallon Apostolic Assembly. I am so excited as we are approaching that wonderful time of fellowship, our annual Visions Conference.
What an awesome thing it is to know that the Lord has chosen us to be the vessels of such a mighty message. As we have been for the past nineteen years, we are privileged to share this soul impacting and life changing word with the rest of the Christian community that surrounds us. I am also thankful to God for the dedication of my fellow conference team members, Evangelist LaMyeia Bradshaw, our Conference Coordinator, Sister Olivia Reed, our Publication and Partner Packaging Leader, and Sister Jeanette Wells, our Secretary and Registration Leader, who have given so unselfishly of their time and abilities to work on this great enterprise. In addition, I thank God for the members of our church who have accepted the “Vision” that God has given their pastor, this year and every year. They share in the belief that God through us has ministry for the local Body of Christ. I am truly grateful.
Soon we will be delving deeply into the revealed will of God as it relates to the role of women in the Body of Christ. The scriptures are replete with accounts of great women in the preservation of God’s people and the promotion of God’s will in the earth. He gave us The Visions of the Midwives as our starting place from which greater truth and understanding will spring. Women have always been integral to the well-being of God’s people. But because of the narrow mindedness of many men, women have been relegated to a level of relative insignificance in the greater scheme of things. Today there is a great awakening to the fact that if it had not been for the role often played by women, the work of God would not have developed as it did.
That our church would be involved in such a movement and given such a message is to my mind, truly wonderful. So let’s celebrate in praise and worship. Let us relish in the revealed will of God through the preached and expounded word. This is what we’ve been working for; this is what we’ve been waiting for. The Visions of the Midwives conference has come!
