So much has happened since that day! How blessed I was to attend this year’s Pastor’s Conference and see the hand of God working...

School of Ministry – Growing in Christ

Pastor Joseph and several Koinonia School of Ministry faculty members participated in the general conference of the Asia Theological Association in Bangalore, India last month.
