      HE MET GOD STANDARDS

      Before we do, God always see our potential. God saw a

      man with a shepherd's heart. As a result, on Saturday

      October 20, 2018, Elder Charles W. McKenney became

      Pastor of the House of Prayer Church.

BAPTIZED OF WATER & OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

One of Pastor Charles McKenney's infamous saying is, "But

God!" This is and continues to be his powerful testimony.

Because, ten years earlier, before being called to the

Ministry. He was at his lowest point in life. No one else

wanted to invest in him: "But God!" It was at this time,

Pastor McKenney makes a solemn vow to himself and God.

He vows to serve Him to eternity. God began to reshape and

remold him. As well as, He renewed his heart. Then and

now, Pastor Charles McKenney's desire is to be a blessing to

the Ministry. Still today as Pastor of House of Prayer he

teaches and preaches the baptism of water and of the Holy

Spirit.

     
     A WILLING HEART

     outside of the Church's walls. He is a recipient of the
