As kids, we used to sit up front during gospel meetings. Up-front was where the action was, especially during the invitation song. It was exciting to see the pews fill up as people came forward for baptism or prayer.
In the past couple of years, people have told me about “preachers” who've had a positive impact on their lives. The list includes:
· Joe Beam
· Kristy Thomas (see below)
Who would make your list?
During my high school years, Kristy Thomas led the women’s prison ministry at our church. We went to the jail week after week, and I saw the Holy Spirit at work in the life of Kristy and in the lives of the women she was teaching.
