How Spirit and Truth Began
The Lord called us to the ministry in 2002, and it is here in our home that Spirit and Truth Tabernacle was birthed. We began with only my wife, my 3 daughters and me. We held Sunday morning services in this living room and Wednesday night Bible studies at the dinner table. God saw our faithfulness in service, when no one else did. I often share how we would get fully dressed for service in our home and treat it as if we were going to a physical place of worship. During this time, we were certainly walking by faith as we simply moved out on the leading of the Spirit.
Eventually, we purchased folding chairs to put in the living room and shifted our furniture around to arrange a true sanctuary feel for the Sunday morning services. One day I received a great surprise from my wife that was such an encouragement to me. She had found a pulpit listed on eBay that was located in an area not very far from us. Being in that area at the time, I raced to find the pulpit; I purchased it and carried it home with me that very day. I was thankful to the Lord that my wife had indeed had the confidence in my leading that she would do such for me. I still have the same pulpit in our church today. In our 1 year of home services, we received 4 visitors. I will be ever grateful for these believers attending at least 1 of the services in our little home.
