All I can say is New Life Worship Center does it again in their continuing efforts to minister to the total man and give “new life.”
New Life recently hosted a financial breakthrough conference where the speaker, one of the foremost authorities on this subject, was Bishop I.V. Hilliard senior pastor of New Light Christian Center in Houston, Texas.
The conference will continue Tuesday, Nov. 17 beginning at 6 p.m.
The evening began with intercessory prayer setting the atmosphere and tone for the evening. A prayer was sent up for the service, the man of God to deliver the word and moreover, praying to hear a word from God. While the prayer was going forth, gospel music was playing softly in the background, continuing to set the mood.
Then the New Life Praise and Worship team along with the choir, under the direction of Pastor Tommie Harris, took the platform. Live music was exchanged for the sounds in the background and musicians began to play, keeping the momentum going.
Following the intercession was offering. The choir singing “My Time to Be Blessed” which was the perfect song to be sung during this time due to senior pastor of New Life Worship Center, Pastor John F. Ramsey’s, teaching his congregation to be excited about the ministry of giving.
Before the message, the choir further blessed attendees with “My Worship is For Real.” Ramsey and the Multi-Media Ministry developed an introduction video of Hilliard, also Ramsey’s father, highlighting some of the significant accomplishments in his life.
Hilliard was called at the age on nine to preach the gospel and many believe Hilliard is a man of excellence. He began his ministry with 23 members, which has growing into an estimated 30,000.
Additionally, he has four campuses in the Houston area, a construction company that builds their churches, a credit union and an aviation ministry to aid and assist him. His wife, Dr. Bridgette Hilliard also handles their hectic schedule of ministering to God’s people.
Hilliard is also the presiding prelate of the Association of Independent Ministries (AIM). This is an organization that is comprised of over 1,000 pastors who are under Hilliard’s tutelage. Many of which are successful.
Hilliard’s financial conference message was entitled, “A Spiritual Focus for a Supernatural Future.” Many received his message due to the fact that he was a $6.50 per week tither, but now gives away over $1,000,000 annually.
Unlike most ministers who preach on prosperity, Hilliard’s focus is not on how to get money, but on holiness first. There were three points in the beginning of his message that he spoke of – holiness, hope and harvest. But the nucleus of the message was to develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit – the key to a financial breakthrough.
Many say it’s not hard to see why Ramsey and wife Lady Alicia Ramsey have such a spirit of excellence over their ministry. Their parents, Bishop and Dr. Hilliard, are such examples.
There are many similarities between the couples. Both have a heart for the family unit as a whole, have a heart to see the people of God prosper, have thriving ministries that help their respective communities and both couples are impeccable dressers.
Many are thankful Ramsey has hosted his father for this financial conference, but it’s not over yet. Pastor Ramsey, Lady Ramsey and the New Life Worship Center family invites you to come out tonight, like Paul Harvey says, to hear the rest of the story.
Hilliard’s message tonight will be, “How To Cultivate a Relationship with the Holy Ghost.” Intercessory prayer begins at 6 p.m. with service beginning at 7 p.m.
