About Elders in the church

James 5:14 - Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

The online encyclopedia Wikipedia defines an Elder as: "An elder in Christianity is a person valued for his wisdom ..." and we definitely have wise elders and we certainly do value them greatly, thanking God for sending strong pillars to lead the way and who encourage others to do the same.

Our Elders

Elder John and his wife Dolores are living proof that God's life for us is good. He is a man of faith, strength and a great example to others.

A pillar is a support structure of a building and Elder John has been a support of this ministry since the beginning - literally. Elder John and his wife Dolores are also Pastor Kevin's parents and have supported him in love and faith his whole life.

Elder John is faithful to the Lord in all ways without a mean word in him. He is always willing to do anything asked and much of what he does is done without being asked. He has done everything from building pulpits for Pastor Kevin to praying for the work of the Kingdom.

Along with his wife by his side they ones who hold up the arms of God's anointed so His people can take the city back for the Lord as well as minister to the people in many other nations!

Elder John is always looking for the next thing he can do for the Lord. There is no greater example for the younger people in the church with his mild manner and "won't quit" attitude.

Elder Skip is gifted strongly in the areas of evangelism and counseling. He moved here from California to be a helper to Pastor Kevin and to the ministry God has planted here in Key West, Florida.

Elder Skip is a great encourager to Pastor Kevin as well as to the congregation. He encourages with words of joy and faith-filled declarations of victory.

“Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.”
— 2 Corinthians 1:24

We are all blessed by his dedication to God first, but also dedication to our Pastor as well. He has a heart to bless and support Pastor Kevin in any way he can.  He will do anything for someone who is sincere in their need and honest about their desire to change the situation. He has been a blessing to us all since he arrived.
