As the pastor of a small country church, I receive numerous calls from various people and organizations wishing to use the church to promote different programs or ministries. I am very cautious about who I let use the pulpit, for I feel it is a responsibility that God has trusted me with, and I take it very seriously. When I was first approached by someone wanting to have Shelly Wilson come to our church and lead us in worship I was definitely excited about the opportunity. I had heard Shelly’s recordings on CD, although never in person. After some discussion and much prayer, I felt God leading me to allow Shelly not only to lead our worship service, but to also bring us the entire message for Sunday morning. God is always faithful! The message that Shelly brought that morning through song and speaking was spot on! God used Shelly in a mighty way to give us, as a body of believers, pastor included, exactly what we needed. I strongly believe Shelly Wilson is a Spirit-led woman of God, carrying out the call He has placed on her life.
In Christ’s Love,
