Report
 


In November, I had the privilege of speaking at Dr. Jack Hayford's annual pastoral leadership conference. Jack Hayford is a preacher with great depth and balance. If you have heard his story, then you know that even though he had no intention of leading a mega church, God established one under his leadership.

This church, Church on the Way, was built on a model of integrity at every level. They have established clear lines of moral, financial and organizational accountability (Church on the Way is part of The Four Square Gospel Church denomination). They have also been a support to the unity of the Church in their area. A few years ago, when most men are thinking about retirement, Jack resigned from his church to begin The Kings College and Seminary. He turned his church of 10,000 over to his son in-law and the church continued to grow. Tragically, his son in-law died of a brain aneurism. A new pastor, Jim Tolle, was set in as the new congregational leader. Since then, the church has continued to grow to well over 15,000 and Jack is still part of this community. In the last year, Jack, at the age of 72, was chosen to be the president of the Four Square Church denomination. May God grant us all like vision, health and energy in our 8th decade!
