Jesus Saves Ministries, turned nine in August and we are still on cloud nine! It is hard to believe it! Jesus Saves Ministries has been around nine years! We bless the Lord always for His keeping power over this ministry and all of our ministry components! On Friday, August 22nd, we held a joint celebration at The Life Conference Suite which turned one in August also.
We praise God for a new dimension in ministry in The Life Conference Suite! Before last year, Jesus Saves Ministries did not have dedicated office space. Since the move to The Life Conference Suite last year, Jesus Saves has hosted two Meet and Greets, allowing many long-time members of the Jesus Saves Social Network to meet face to face for the first time. In August 2013, Jesus Saves Ministries coordinated the grand opening and dedication of The Life Conference Suite. In October and November of 2013, we hosted two Jesus Saves Two-Chili Lunch, fundraisers which helped us to maintain our giving to the needy with toiletry baskets and food baskets for the holidays.
In January of this year, we hosted the Break Every Chain Prayer Breakfast that allowed for network members and ministry partners to come together for the first time in corporate prayer and fellowship. In June, Jesus Saves Ministries served as the coordinating ministry for the "Praying for A Healthy Community" Prayer Breakfast, the kickoff event to Summerfest 2014 sponsored by WLOU and the new Praize 104.7 FM. The standing-room only event drew more than 200 attendees to the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage.
Our ninth anniversary celebration was a blast! And to think the Lord has given us our very own space for meetings, workshops, retreats, worship services and social gatherings. We are believing God for greater level of ministry for Jesus Saves Ministries this year.
