2016 Pastor Appreciation

The month of October is designated as “Pastor Appreciation Month.”  At Pioneer we are grateful for all the pastors that serve this congregation magnificently. We are very blessed. During this time we want to let them know how much we have benefited from their ministry. The powerful sermons of Dwight Nelson have lifted us higher in our walk with Jesus. The evangelistic emphasis of meeting the needs of our community, inspired by Pastor Rodlie Ortiz, has reinvigorated the mission of PMC. The excellent ministry of Grow Groups that have caused so many of us at Pioneer to grow in our relationship with Jesus has happened because of the loving ministry of Pastor Sabine Vatel. Her smile is contagious. more
