Pastor Dr. Mel Silas
The Lord has blessed this ministry with people that have a passion for ministry. People that are self-sacrificing in giving of themselves to assist others and helping to moving forward with the vision that God has placed in the heart of our pastor.
For the body is not one member, but many.
I CORITHIANS 12:14
So it is, that there are many parts but one Body. As Pastor of this ministry, God has made me the head, but the head is ineffective without the hands, feet, legs, arms, and other parts.Everyone is important in bringing the goals, objectives, and vision to pass.
