Pastor's Appreciation Day

“And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.” (Jeremiah 3:15)

We may differ on what our favorite team is, or if chocolate ice cream tastes better than vanilla ice cream, but we all agree on one thing…we got the greatest spiritual leader in the world! Bishop Timothy J. Clarke is indeed a blessing to all of us. With his spiritual teachings and his excellent leadership, he has served not only as a pastor, but also a mentor, father-figure, and role model for the 36 years he has been the overseer here at First Church of God. Here is a brief look at the day First Church celebrated and honored this excellent man of God . . .

For the lips of a priest should guard knowledge, and people should seek instruction from his mouth, for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 2:7 ESV)

Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.”

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. (John 14:26 ESV)
