Previous Pastor




As we announced several weeks ago, the Holy Spirit laid on the hearts of the ministry in late December to extend an invitation to our precious Brother Kevin Blewett to see if he could come and minister to NY/PA the weekend of February 18th on his way to the mighty Tucson meetings the following weekend. Since extending that invitation, the Lord has lead NY and PA into a special 50 day January and February revival to start our 7th year, a year of dynamics which would also climax that same Sunday.

We are pleased to confirm that the Lord has opened all the doors for our precious brother to be able to plan his travel through NY. Our hearts are under such expectation to see God climax our special revival season that very same weekend. The agenda for the weekend is as follows :


Agenda Saturday 17th February


Dedicated coach bus will depart from PA church parking lot at 11am

Bus will arrive at Marriott Hotel for a 2pm check in

The bus will depart for the evening service at 4.45pm

Saturday evening service – Doors open at 5pm, service starts at 6pm

The bus will return all the believers to the hotel after service.


Agenda Sunday 18th February


Sunday morning service – Doors open at 9am for 10am start.

Church New Year Dinner - After service, we will have a church new year dinner. All are welcome. It will be at the same Marriott hotel as where our out of town guests are staying. Please sign up at the church desk ahead of time. The subsidized cost would be $15/adult and $10/children 12 and under.

After the dinner the bus will depart for PA.


Some Points of Clarification

The bus ride from PA to NY is at no charge to the believers as we want to make it possible for all of PA to be present for this special weekend. The bus will be a luxury 52 seater coach which is extremely comfortable and will have refreshments and a bathroom on board.
