Resurrection Sunday April 12,2009
Glory Ministries Congregation at their 1st Resurrection Service at Shawnee Elementary School in Xenia,Ohio
Pastor and founder, Gloria Wade Dillon, DMin
In Novemeber of 2008, under the unction of the Holy Spirit, the Lord pressed on my heart that it was time to step out on faith and to enter into yet another phase of ministry. He made it plain that I was to return to Xenia and start a church.
This was no surprise, because when I first acknowledged my call to preach in November 1998, the Lord told me I was to start, and Pastor a church in Xenia. Although that remained in the back of my mind, I was quite comfortable with my limited responsibilities as an Associate Minister at a mega church. However, once we come to truly understand that our purpose is to do the will of God, then we have no choice but to follow His lead. So when I could no longer stand not being in the will of God, I began to seek the support of my family to help bring Glory Ministries Church to fruition.
Within a few short weeks, Glory Ministries Church had a name, a mission statement, a theme scripture, a place to worship, an insurance policy, a post office box, a state ID number, a bank account with $40.00, and we were incorporated.
Our first service was held on December 21st, 2008, and Glory Ministries was birthed. The first person to join the church was my brother James E. Wade Jr. This was followed by my eldest neice Kim Martin. Both joined during our first service.
Since our first service, we have witnessed the miraculous hand of the Lord in so many ways. We have grown to an average of forty or more in attendance each Sunday. We successfully bidded on a wonderful church building and now have been at our permanant home since July 2009.
The fifth Sunday in January, 2010, we are scheduled to baptized seven adults, one teen, and two children. We were blessed on today, (Jan. 24, 2010) to receive into our membership eight new members. God is awesome!
Again, we give God all of the glory for His unfailing love and faithfulness. If you are looking for a church home, please consider visiting us for an annointed and exciting worship experience. We trust that you will find the atmosphere warm, friendly, and filled with the presence and spirit of the Lord.
COME AS YOU ARE"!!!!
Not unto us, O Lord, but to you goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness
