World Christianship Ministries
"Featured ministry"

The ministry of Rev. Arthur
of Butler, Pennsylvania

  I was ordained by World Christianship in February of 1997.  Having always felt a call to the ministry, I didn't know how I could find the time to attend a Bible college while I was full time employed.rev arthur 3
  Many years have passed since then, but one day while talking about my interest in speaking, I was handed a set of forms from World Christianship, and things started to happen. Praise God!
     In May I decided to start a church and made my wishes known to others.  The Lord answered my prayers in mid May.
     I was given a church to use full time just for maintaining it and the grounds plus a small cemetery.
     Our first service was June 8, 1997 and we have been having regular services on Sunday and Wednesday since then.
     We have a small congregation of 10, but through the Lord we will grow.  We have led one to Christ in July and hope to have her baptized soon.
     Being ordained through conventional methods was impossible for me.  But through World Christianship it became a reality. Praise God!

Note from World Christianship:

Thank you Rev. Arthur for taking the time to share your testimony and the pictures of your wonderful and "Spirit filled" new ministry and church.  You and your beautiful family, and your devoted congregation are an inspiration to us all.  We know that many wonderful works "in Christ" will be accomplished by all of you.
