Tri-State Quarterly Conference, Clyffeside Worship, Ashland, KY:

There was a Great Pastor's Meeting, Quarterly Conference, and Worship Service at Clyffeside worship in Ashland, Kentucky where Dwayne Young is Pastor! There were 8 churches represented! The worship was good and the word that Pastor Gary Newman of Sandhill IPCC preached on "Catch the Vision" was challenging and encouraging. Teresa Hatten Paxson received her Christian Lay Minister's License, Kathy Salyer and Floyd Barton received their Evangelist License, and Linda Massie received her Licensed Minister Credentials. The food and fellowship afterwards was great as well! Everyone was excited that they attended the QC! The District is growing!

Trinity Gospel Tabernacle, Galion, OH:

My dad, Rev. Lonnie Truelove, another friend of mine and I traveled to Trinity Gospel Tabernacle in Galion, Ohio where Rick and Janice Cox are Pastors. The church was well attended for a Wednesday night service. Rick Cox is a dynamic musician and has been a faithful Pastor to the community of Galion. The church responded well to the message! After service I had wonderful fellowship with Pastor Rick Cox.

North Eastern Quarterly Conference, Solid Rock Fellowship, Inwood, WV:

The North Eastern District QC at Solid Rock Fellowship in Inwood, West Virginia where Frankie James is Pastor went very well. Four North Eastern District churches were represented during the QC: Iglesia Misionera, Leesburg, VA, Middleway IPCC, Middleway, WV, Landmark IPCC, Millersville, MD and Solid Rock Fellowship, Inwood, WV. Every church and their Pastor was given the chance to sing and testify. The message I preached that evening was well received and there was a wonderful altar call at the end of service. The Pastors and churches present were praying for the North Eastern District and the IPCC.

Pulaski IPCC, Pulaski, VA:

It is always a joy to visit the New River District! During my time at the New River District I usually stay at Pastor Jim and Anna Pierson’s home. Jim Pierson is the Pastor at Rock Camp IPCC. Jim and Anna always treat me very well and have become great friends. I always love my visits to Pulaski IPCC in Pulaski, VA where Mary Morris is Pastor. The people at Pulaski are very enthusiastic about Jesus. The people at Pulaski IPCC love church and love the word of God.

Lindside IPCC, Lindside WV:

Lindside IPCC has a new Pastor! Ricky Tickle and his wife Loretta Lynn Tickle are the Pastors of Lindside IPCC. Pastor Ricky has a zeal for the Lord and has a desire to see souls saved. The church has been looking for a Pastor for a long time. Pastor Ricky Tickle also received Evangelistic License the night he was placed as Pastor of Lindside. I had the privilege of spending a day with District Overseer Calvin Weikel during my time in the New River District. Pastor Calvin Weikel is one of the most compassionate, loving men in the IPCC.

Soul Harvest Church, Richmond, VA:

The Soul Harvest Church in Richmond, Virginia has a great vision to reach the community for the Lord. Chad and April Cannon are the Pastors at Soul Harvest Church and they are doing a wonderful job. Pastor Chad’s Grandfather, Dr. Cannon, passed a great legacy to his grandson. The church has Wednesday night dinners for the children and people of community. After the dinners they break into classes. It was great to see around 30 children present at the service that I attended. The members have remodeled their basement as well as improved on their technology equipment.

East Lake Holiness Church, East Lake, NC:

For the 1st time I was honored to preach at East Lake Holiness church in East Lake, North Carolina. Pastor Anthony and Sis. Sharon Ralph are pastors of two churches; East Lake Holiness Church in East Lake, North Carolina and Harbor Light Holiness Church in Manns Harbor, North Carolina. I learned a lot about the history of the church and how it got started as a result of a revival in Buffalo City. Buffalo City was a thriving lumber and logging community for many years. Eventually those jobs went away as well as Buffalo City. Former General Overseer, Bishop Tom Grinder, helped build the current church at its current location. He pulled logs with his car to build the building. The church’s foundation is built on old whiskey kegs. It is good to see that the church stood the test of time.

Harbor Light Holiness Church, Manns Harbor, NC:

It was a blessing to preach at Harbor Light Holiness Church in Manns Harbor, North Carolina as well. The church is doing very well with the recent addition of 15+ new members. Harbor Light Holiness Church has almost completed its Youth Outreach Center. Pastor Anthony’s vision with the Youth Outreach Center is to be a lighthouse of hope to the area. It was a very refreshing time that I was privilege to partake in at Manns Harbor.

Pearl Street Pentecostal Church, Elizabeth City, NC:

I was greeted by a lot of friendly people from Pearl Street Pentecostal Church in Elizabeth City, North Carolina where Rick and Michelle Lowery are Pastors. I attended a recent banquet the church was hosting. The church has a great vision going forward! They want to sell their current church property and build on a different location in order to reach the harvest! I am impressed by the visionary leadership of Pastor Rick Lowery. Continue to pray for Pearl Street Pentecostal Church!

During my time in the Mid-Eastern District I also fellowshipped with Virginia Beach Pastor Jimmy Brockway, Mid-Eastern District Overseer Gene Boyce and his wonderful wife Gloria. Pastor Jimmy and Selina Brockway are expecting twins this year! That is a blessing to their family and the Virginia Beach church. Pastor Gene and Gloria Boyce hosted me in their home for late night desserts and then in the morning for a full course breakfast. I enjoyed the warm fellowship of Gene and Gloria Boyce.

Spring Encounter, London, OH:

By Ervin Hargrave:

The Central District's Spring Encounter: Speakers, Ron and Edna Wagers did an outstanding job of teaching God's word to approximately 30 of the district's pastors and leaders from three districts. Two churches from the North Central District; Full Gospel Assembly and Open Door Pentecostal, two churches from the Tri-State District; Chillicothe IPCC and Faith Family Worship and three churches from the Central District; DayStar Church, Jamestown IPCC, and Springfield IPCC were present. The presence of the Lord was evident in every session. Thank you to all that attended!

New River District Trip:

By Frank Angié:

Pastor and Sister Pierson welcomed me into their home, and gave me awesome hospitality and fellowship. I was welcomed by Pastor Calvin and the members of the New River District at the District Quarterly Conference held at the Rock Camp IPCC on Saturday, January 14. It was good to see some friends and to meet new friends. Brother Tickle will be pastoring the Lindside IPCC. We had a very good meeting, I had the honor of preaching the Word. Afterwards some of us got together for a meal at Pastor and Sister Pierson's restaurant in Lindside, West Virginia.

The same evening I was at the Pulaski IPCC in Pulaski, Virginia. Pastor Mary Morris and the congregation there made me feel at home. There was a good crowd that came out on Saturday night. The singing and worship was incredible. I preached and the altar service was amazing with prayer and people slain in the Spirit. 

On Sunday morning I drove to Glendale Springs to the Blue Ridge Worship Center IPCC. It is located in the beautiful western North Carolina mountains. It was so good to meet the wonderful people. Pastor Virginia Massar and her husband, as well as the whole congregation, made me feel welcome. Pastor Massar taught Sunday School, we had great worship and then I was privileged to bring the Word. After service some of us went to a local restaurant for some good food and wonderful fellowship.

Being with the wonderful people of the New River District was a great honor. Even though I have told many people how loving and kind our people are, it is amazing to experience the kindness of our wonderful IPCC people.
