Rev. Gandy's Comment

Rev. Gandy left this as a comment and I thought it too good to just get buried in  the comments,
so I made it an individual post.


Thank God for our leaders! It always saddens my heart to hear that people have spoken bad about our Pastor and leaders. Truly, Pastor is a great man of God. I have had the opportunity to see Pastor do many things to help men and women through the years that no one else knows about.
He has helped, financially and spiritually. When one speaks ill of him it just lets me know that they do not really know him. I have been with him when no one else is around and he is a Christian then and he is a Christian when he is around a lot of people.
I could speak of many things of how he has been a blessing to me and my wife through the years. Whether the church I pastored was small or large, he came to see us to help and encourage us. In many organizations if the church cannot provide a big offering the leader does not visit. THIS IS NOT TRUE with the leaders of NTCC!!
Our leaders and overseer's care for us and love us and have only one desire and that is to help the preachers and to see men and women reached for the glory of God!
I am thankful for Pastor and Sister Davis.
Also, Rev. and Sister Olson who have shown me nothing but the love and kindness of our Savior. Rev. and Sister Johnson who have always had a special place in my heart. Rev. Johnson is a very humble man. Rev. and Sister Kekel, how can I comment and display my love for them in such a short space. What an inspiration they are!
Rev. and Sister Ashmore, well, what can I say? Just being with them is a blast, and I am challenged continually by his preaching and life. Rev. and Sister DiFrancesco. One thing that I think of him are the words..."Always Faithul." He and his wife are special and I count it a priviledge to call them my friend.
Rev. and Sister Tieman, Rev. and Sister L.D. Jones, and Rev. and Sister Kinson as they labor assisting Rev. Johnson are men and women who love God and carry love in their hearts for Jesus and his work.
All of our leaders work many hours and strive to be a blessing to all of our works. Thank the Lord that they have answered the call and have a laid self down and taken up the call of the cross.
I also want to add that I consider many who are not on the General Board as leaders in our organization. Each and every pastor, minister, preachers wife who have laid down self and answered the call is held high in my estimation. I could list some names but some may be offende if I did not list theirs. Let it suffice to say that there are many that I respect greatly.
I love the leaders of our organization and realize that without NTCC I probably would be in hell. I love the family of God and always look forward to seeing them at conference.
I am going to sign my name, and I know that if one of the fault finders read this, they will just say that.."There he goes again...He is just a org yes man....He is just one of those company men etc..."
Well....I am not a yes man, I am a Christian. As far as being a company man.....YES I AM!!!!
God Bless all of the faithul Brethren.
