My name is Ioséias , Christian pastor and I 'm 40 years old. Grazing Congregational Church of Comfort ( Volta Redonda - RJ ) , which is a great joy in my heart . I'll explain why?
June 13, 1992 , shortly after receiving instantaneous healing of a
chronic headache that plagued constantly heard a prophetic word that
Yahweh our God was separating me to the pastorate .
brother who was instrumental in my healing and gave me that word (since
I can not remember his name , unfortunately) said that the Lord was
putting in my hand ( I believe on the left , since I am left handed ,
lol ) one little Church of crystal and sent him to tell me : "Take care , because she is mine." I never forgot that experience .
, I am fully convinced that the Church "that the Lord has placed in my
hand " on June 13, 1992 is the Congregational Comfort , having never
pastored another faith community , since I was ordained on January 29,
I got this church in March 1, 2009 as an assistant pastor , which I thought strange since the herd had only 12 children . But over time I began to understand why God had sent me to this church . Worked
as assistant pastor of the late pastor , Antonio de Moraes Acassio
until the 16th of November of the same year , when he left the front of
the church to start pioneering work of Word of Life Church in Volta
I assumed the interim pastor of the congregation , until on 02 December
( 2009) was sworn in by shepherds José Flávio de Souza Luciano Moura
and as the pastor of this beautiful church, which at the time had 34
Today, almost four years later , we are a little over 100 brothers and we are growing fast, the goodness and mercy of God .
It is obvious that the Church under my grazing is not perfect . There
are problems to be solved , I am not liked by everyone ( no leader is )
, not count on the loyalty of all ( has no leader ) . Also still have my weaknesses and limitations , that leverage my problems and perhaps generate problems for others. However , I love these people very strongly and I do not see another herding sheep.
know the day will come that I will leave the front of the church for a
young pastor to assume and continue taking care of God's people , but
this saddens me . Rather,
bring me, now , a preview of the feeling of accomplishment that I will
have the day to leave the pastorate of the Congregational Church in
For this reason I say that this flock is like a part of me and got in my heart with deep love .
I hope in my life to honor God who called caring with full zeal for souls so valuable that He has entrusted in my hands . May the Lord help me .
Soli Deo Gloria.
