1 Peter 4:8-12
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Use hospitality one to another without grudging. As every man hath received the gift, even so, minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

We strive to offer services and sound biblical teachings true to the Anglican tradition. Your kind comments are gratefully received, and we hold each one of you in our daily prayers. God bless you all.
“I have had the honor and privilege of working with Archbishop Christine Johnson for over a year. I have had the opportunity to witness her interactions with our patients, bereaved families, and co-workers. Christine has always dealt with everyone in a forthright, honest and compassionate way. She has been able to not only address and assist them with their grief needs but has also been able to guide them spiritually in a way no one else in our agency is able to do so. Christine intuitively knows the best way to approach people and gives them a new perspective to help them with their personal and spiritual growth and meets them where they are. She has integrity and always considers what is best for all concerned, putting aside her own needs yet keeping professional boundaries. Christine is deeply committed to helping mankind. She is very gifted and uses her gifts for the highest and best of all that she serves. Christine is a blessing to all she comes into contact with and are open to what she has to offer. I highly recommend her. Teresa, OH”

“Archbishop Christine Johnson has faithfully served in our Abider services at Pioneer Manor. The program provides a presence during the final days or hours of a person’s life to ensure that the individual does not face death alone. Christine has the gentle spirit and sense of respect and dignity that we require to serve our residents/patients and the kind personality necessary to represent our organization to these clients and their families at such a demanding time during the end stages of life. Her gentle demeanor and caring disciple more than qualify her to provide such service. Her pleasant manner and deportment make it an absolute delight to be in her presence. She shows prudence in her choice of words when dealing with either colleagues and clients. I personally extend my recommendation for Christine to serve in other communities and institutions in a similar manner. She is highly respected by her peers, often going above and beyond her required obligation, filling in the gap and sacrificing her personal time in order to meet the need, with pleasantry, grace, and finesse.” Rev. Bob W. Rudichar. Chaplain Services Coordinator. Campbell County Memorial Hospital

“Mi nombre Maria Luisa Prada Rocha. Me convertí en el año 1.992, mi mentor o Pastor en aquel entonces Pastor Spencer Garnica Lever, a quien le atribuyó uno de los Dones más importantes, como lo es la enseñanza (no pretendo menospreciar los demás Dones), pero para una persona que no conoce nada del Señor, el ser adoctrinado bíblicaente es un gran privilegio porque se recibe de inmediato el sentido de identidad como hijo de Dios, y sabe a partir de allí que espera Dios y hacia dónde nos dirigimos, y eso fue lo que recibí de mi amado hermano, y gracias a Dios su Pastorado aun hasta el día de hoy permanece, gracias a todas las experiencias de vida agradezco a Dios contar aun hoy con su amistad. Consejero, Profeta, Evangelista, Salmista para Dios. Un gran hombre de Fé, al que el Señor ha bendecido en gran manera. Oro porque sea guardado su vida en el Señor siempre.” – Maria Luisa Prada Rocha. – My name Maria Luisa Prada Rocha.

Counselor, Prophet, Evangelist, Psalmist for God. A great man of Faith, whom the Lord has blessed greatly. I pray that your life will be kept in the Lord forever. – Maria Luisa Prada Rocha.

“I have known Bishop Charles Harewood for over fifty years. I have always know him to be honest,loyal,quiet and a very intelligent person.

“Archbishop Christine Johnson is responsible for a ministry that stretches the four corners of the globe. Yet she still found time to spend with my aunt when she lost her husband of over 50 years. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ always found time to serve and tend his flock when he walked the earth. Dr. Johnson has followed in the steps of our Master. She is tireless, relentless and her messages from the pulpit are loud and clear and truly inspirational! Yet, if a layman would happen to walk by her and seek healing, counsel, or a shoulder to cry on she will find the time. She is a true Servant of the Lord who has been chosen to lead his flock in these most trying times. All one needs to do is stand in her presence to know there’s something truly special that radiates constantly.” – Diego, NY
