Glory to the Lord God and many joyful congratulations to the In Christ New Hope Ministry Family in New York, North Carolina and Florida.

Our expanded worship home, on the Campus at In Christ (155 Pinnacle Road in Henrietta, NY near Tim Hortons), opened to the public on December 18, 2011 celebrating God’s faithfulness. On that great day, we rejoiced over the licensing of Ministers Toni Lockhart, Dr. Tori Matthews-Roberson and Madell A. Breedlove as well as the ordination of Elders Cherri Hawkins and William Powell. We continue to use the smaller building for our growing youth ministry and children’s church, and other leadership, administrative and ministry gatherings.

Vision Campaign Did you know that the new edifice expands our physical size by five times the former footprint? Even as we serve God in the wonderful new Campus at In Christ that He has provided, continue to put God first for your believing, first in the expression of your faith, and first and foremost in your giving. While you are blessing others, He blesses you. Glory to God, highly exalted is He forever!

  1. In the name of Jesus, heartfelt congratulations to Pastor Roger and Minister Madell and the entire ICNHM family in NY, NC and FL for being workers together with God in His awesome work expanding our spiritual Campus at In Christ. It has been wonderful to sit on the wall and pray and watch God bring forth a spectular vision.

    Faithfulness is always rewarded. Honor is always rewarded. And obedience is better than sacrifice. Where the sacrifice has been great, the reward is far greater still. What a blessing to see this portion of God’s plan for Western New York unfold! Many prosper-ing-ous returns. May the Holy Spirit richly increase the house of In Christ with wisdom and endow it with even greater kingdom building because the Lord’s “sought out ones” are so deserving. Grace and Peace from our Father God.

  8. Today, September 29, 2011, while in morning prayer looking in the perfect law of liberty in Romans 8, and seeing the wisdom of the message that the Holy Spirit revealed, I concluded that the entire plan of our Father God is one of CHANGE! And this change is the plan of God for every citizen in the Kingdom.

    It’s the power of the Holy Spirit, working in the lives of mankind’ that gives us the ability to expereince this awesome changed life, from the inside outwardly. It’s the Holy Spirit that reveals we are sons of God. (Romans 8:14)

  9. God is good! Romans 10:17 says, Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God. We the announcement ministry are building leaders, and supporting one another to be all that we can be in the body of Christ. As we move into our new place of worship we will continue to share God’s inspiring news. Congratulations and many blessings family on another job well done.
