“Once a Friend of Jesus, Always a Friend of Jesus”

There are many other Friends of Jesus who have ministered with us, are part of our ministry network, and are too numerous to mention; on stage and behind the scenes, whether they be singers, players, sidemen, soundmen, promoters, sponsors, or prayer warriors! Thanks, and praise be to God! 1 Corinthians 15:58.
