Tri-State District Picnic, Greenup Dam, KY:
From Pastors Gary and Amanda Newman:
There was a very good turn-out for our Tri-State District annual picnic. There were approx. 107 in attendance and 7 churches represented including: Zoar, Sand Hill, Catlettsburg, Portsmouth, Chillicothe, Scioto Furnace and Jackson. THANKS to all who came and worked so hard to make it a success.
It was a wonderful time of food, fellowship and faith as the Tri-State District came together. Everyone who attended were glad they came.
Church Leadership Conference, Pigeon Forge, Tenn:
The Church Leadership Conference at the Music Road Hotel in Pigeon Forge with Pastor Jim Cymbala of Brooklyn Tabernacle and Sis. Edna Wagers was a time of refreshing and renewal to everyone who attended. The basic theme that both Pastor Cymbala and Sis. Wagers preached was "In order to be anointed you must spend time with Jesus". Prayer is the key that made Brooklyn Tabernacle grow and prayer is the key to make any church grow. We were encouraged by Pastor Cymbala to have a consistent prayer life. The Church Leadership Conference is sponsored by 4 denominations: International Pentecostal Church of Christ, Church of God Mountain Assembly, Congregational Holiness and Pentecostal Free Will Baptist. Four IPCC Districts were represented: Central, North Central, Tri-State and New River. All the IPCC delegation had wonderful fellowship throughout the Conference.
The Homegoing Celebration of Rev. Pauline Ferguson:
Several churches, IPCC ministers and Pastors attended the Visitation and Funeral Service of long-time IPCC minister, Rev. Pauline Ferguson. Rev. Ervin Hargrave and Rev. Dean Kuhn did a fantastic job speaking about the life of Sis. Pauline.

Salyersville IPCC, Salyersville, KY:
It was a great opportunity for me to preach at the Salyersville IPCC Homecoming Revival in Salyersville, Kentucky. Pastor Phillip Pucket has pastored the church for 34 years. The church has gone through several remodeling projects and many people were present during the Friday night service. The church has seen over 20 people come to the Lord in 2017!

Dean Kuhn, my wife, Stephanie, my son, Zach, and I were privileged to preach during a 3 day Homecoming Revival at Sand Hill IPCC church in South Shore, Kentucky. Pastor Gary and Amanda Newman were celebrating their 10th year anniversary at the church. Zoar, Portsmouth and Catlettsburg churches supported the revival. Over 105 people attended the Sunday morning Homecoming service. The spirit of the lord moved powerfully around the altar as lives were touched. Afterwards, a great meal was served and there were activities for the children. The Christian singing group, "Blood Bought", were also present. It was a wonderful time at Sand Hill
