All praises, honor and glory to God! I am eternally thankful to God for blessing me with a man who is able and capable to be my husband and pastor. He stands and proclaims the word of God. Our hearts are inspired, souls are revived, and our minds are enlightened. This is "the greatest church in the world!"
First Lady Mary E. Funchess
Many changes have taken place in the last twenty-five years, many things have changed. However, I know that the word of God has not changed and will never change. Heaven and Earth will pass away, but the word of God will stand!
I urge this great Church Family to stay with God who has kept us safe through many storms, valleys, and life's challenges. We have His promise that He will keep us from falling and present us faultless before The Righteous Judge. God's principles never change. Heb 13:8; Jude 1:24.
It is my endeavor to serve wholeheartedly as pastor according to the scripture to "feed, lead the flock, protect, love, concentrate, pray, and study continuously that the church be edified. Jn.21:17; 1Pt. 5:2; Eph. 4:2; and Cor. 7:1. It is my pleasure to shepherd, "The Greatest Church in the Whole Wide World . . . Greater Mt. Olive!"
Pastor James L. Funchess
