Congregants in their Sunday best attire filled the sanctuary at Emmanuel Christian Fellowship Center on March 24 for a testimony service hosted by Randy Weston and Judah Band featuring The Church Choir. 

The night consisted of uplifting testimonies and gospel music from the 80s and 90s. 

“It’s something we used to do in the Black church growing up and it inspired and lifted the faith of God’s people and we wanted to make sure that we brought that jewel back,” Randy Weston said. 

Barbara Brown, pastor of Lighthouse Mission Church in Vine Grove, KY, opened the night with a prayer.  

“Lord, we need you day-by-day … we need your anointing; we need your power; Jesus! Jesus!” Brown prayed as the crowd of people began to clap and shout. 

After prayer, The Church Choir offered the first song of the night, “Can’t Nobody Do Me Like Jesus.” 

“Can’t nobody, do me like Jesus. Can’t nobody do me like the Lord; he’s my friend,” The Church Choir sang as the audience began to stand and sing along.  

After the first song, Weston told the audience, “It’s time to testify.” 

Audience members began to line up for the first round of testimony service and the night continued with musical selections and a variety of testimonies ranging from overcoming drug addiction, abuse, health concerns, and more.  

One testimony came from Darnell Elliot.  

“This one’s for my dad,” Elliot told the congregation. “I was attending a funeral … my dad ministered … (and there was) a song called, ‘My Soul is Anchored,’ and he sung that song till the glory of the Lord fell down in that place,” Elliot said. 

Elliot reminisced, saying his father passing out in a church parking lot after suffering a massive heart attack. 

“He died on that lot for fifteen minutes with no pulse … Lord this can’t be. Not right now God! Not right now!” Elliot yelled. “I need you to show me a miracle. And God did just that.” 

According to Elliot, he and his family began to pray for his father and after a while he saw his father’s body “jumped up off the ground,” indicating he was alive. 

The crowd Emmanuel roared with excitement from the testimony. 

The service ended around 11 p.m. and everyone walked away with smiles and in good spirits. 

“I hope that everyone who comes, their faith is lifted, and they are revived in what God can do and they can see and hear testimonies of other people … and when they leave here, they believe God can do anything but fail them,” Weston said.
