SCFWB Announces partnership with Protect My Ministry

Proper Screening of Church employees and volunteers can help to both protect your ministry from problems and defer liability, but it can be a difficult and confusing process. That’s why the SCFWB State Association has teamed up with Protect My Ministry, to provided churches and Organizations which are members of the State Association to get background checks on their employees and volunteers at group prices.

Go to http://www.scfwb.com/back-ground-checks/  and follow the prompts, to start screening today.

It is recommended that you give them a call BEFORE signing up: 800-319-5581.  There are several technical and package options which can be helpful and it’s always easier to get it right the first time than it is to fix it later. 


Andy Moore (Brazil)  Thank you for being a part of this exciting journey of faith through your prayers, giving, and encouragement. One day in heaven, you will be able to meet Luiz Carlos and Rachel, and many more like them and know that you had a part in their journey to the Father’s house.

Neil/ Mandi Morgan (Spain) We praise the Lord that our pastor José Manuel has been hired at a nursing home. He is thrilled with the provision of the Lord for his family, but also for the opportunity for ministry this position provides. We are also thankful for the opportunity Neil had to preach a sermon series from Nehemiah. Please continue to pray for the ministry of the church and the relationships we are building here. Thank each of you for being people with “a mind to work” to help us minister in Spain.

*Rev. Earl Stanley (True Life) had colon surgery and is recovering. Please remember him in prayer.

*Danielle Seaton (Wife of Rev Brad Seaton, St. John’s) (SC) has started walking a lot more. She hasn’t needed the wheel chair in over a month or so now. Her back pain continues to get better week by week. She now completely off of all pain medication and is doing pretty good. She is still having extreme pain in her right leg but we spoke with a neurologist Monday. It was determined that the leg pain is not related to her back. It is a pinched nerve at her hip due to her extended wheelchair use. They hope it will heal within 6 months to a year. We both are so very thankful and forever grateful for all the prayers that have gone up for her. I am so thankful to be a part of such a great state of praying men of God and praying churches. I do ask you to continue to pray for her as she continues to recover and heal. We both are very optimistic about the future and her surgery outcome. God has truly blessed us more than we ever deserved. Once again thank you all for your prayers.

This Day in History

On August 11, 1994, the longest work stoppage in major league history begins. Because of the strike, the 1994 World Series was cancelled; it was the first time baseball did not crown a champion in 89 years.


If you’re old enough to remember, “The Strike” and if you are a Baseball fan, you probably still have a bad taste in your mouth regarding the walk out, and the ensuing lapse of baseball in the 94’ season.

The results of discord between players and owners are still felt to this day and many say that Baseball hasn’t recovered, as the attendance at games is still low. Though The Strike is likely to blame for starting Baseball’s decline, other things like pace of play, and the length of official reviews, all add to the dragging atmosphere felt by many at Major league Games today.

What a great lesson the church could learn from this. Many congregations suffer because of discord in the church. Poorly managed services also serve to do great harm in making the most exciting thing available to mankind (ie: Salvation)…boring. We should not handle the Gospel so poorly as to make is seem dull and drab. After all it is “The Power of God Unto Salvation!

Ro 5:11 and not only so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

 “Prosphero Theos”

Col 1:18
