Pioneer Pastors

“Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls” (Jeremiah 6:16). Join us to see the old paths that pastors and people on the frontier blazed for the Gospel, what sacrifices they made, what hardships they overcame, what joys they had, what lives they lived. Be inspired by these pioneers for Christ and consider what new places and new tasks may be yours for the sake of the Word of God reaching our people in our generation.

Hosts: Rev. Willie Grills and Rev. Zelwyn Heide

    Very well done. I certainly didn’t expect it. I lived abut three hours away from Mellowdale (the community specifically referenced). I would hope that I would still make the time commitment to travel there (even today) for church service, that the pioneer’s made back in their day.
