December 30 was a historic night at Mt. Zion as 32 adults and teens met with Pastor and Shirley in their home for a Missions and Ministry Dream night. 26 of them have surrendered to full-time ministry including 4 couples who have their Bible college training. We examined the call of God, MZâ€™s philosophy of missions and the step-by-step process of taking a short term missions trip OR of being sent from MZ. It was a fabulous night of dreaming.
We currently have 10 students at Christian colleges: 3 at Pensacola Christian College, 3 at Ambassador Baptist College in NC, one each at Maranatha (Elkton MD), Fairhaven, and New England Baptist College in CT.
