Jesus My King Church has a passion and burden for the community. Pastor Steven is a leader in his desire to build relationships and pray for those who serve within the county. Under his leadership, church members have participated in several activities to establish connections and be a prayer covering for those in our area. We strive to follow the instruction given in 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV) to “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing”.
Two prayer breakfasts for local government agencies were held during the year in 2022 at the Joshua Hall. The law enforcement prayer breakfast was attended by The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department and The Shelby Police Department. A second prayer breakfast was held for the Shelby Fire Department which consisted of local firefighters and rescue workers. Those attending enjoyed a delicious breakfast, worship music with Pastor Jeff and a special message from Pastor Steven. It was a memorable time of fellowship and prayer.
In 2023, we look forward to hosting a children’s evangelistic outreach. The Lord has directed us to minister to the children through a large scale event on campus. This will include special messages of Christ’s love and salvation through puppetry and clown ministry in a fun-filled and action packed day. We look forward to what the Lord will have us do in the upcoming year!
