Emmitt Louis Nevels, Sr. is a ministerial product of the Church Of God In Christ. After coming to faith in Christ and receiving the Baptism in the Holy Ghost, Brother Nevels acknowledged a call to ministry and began his trek toward leadership in the Church through obedience, consecration and devout, formal study of the Word of God.
His Pastoral experiences are legendary and his love for people brings him great commendation among all who know him. “Evangelism” has been this man’s hallmark for more than four decades and his godly lifestyle is admired and longed for among those of us who “seek the old path”.
Bishop Nevels has earned the respect of his wife and children and they attest to his life by their good behavior in holiness and by their support in ministry.
A group of Pastors of the Central Ohio Jurisdiction made their desires known when the Presiding Bishop of our Church asked for a “Recommendation Ballot” to help him in determining who should succeed our former Prelate, the late Bishop Warren Elijah Miller. Because so many of us desired to have his leadership, our Presiding Bishop has appointed him, Bishop of Ohio West Jurisdiction.
Now, we are all here to hear what the Lord would say unto us through him…

58th Annual Homecoming of St. Ashworth Temple
Sunday, October 20, 2013
Guest Speaker: Elder Willie Templeton, Sr.
We invite you to join St. Ashworth Temple in Fasting and Morning Prayer Every Tuesday and Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. (Eastern)
Prayer moves the hand which moves the world. This is a God-given call to pray for our families, churches, ministries, communities and each other. This is an opportunity for praying for guidance, direction, healing, strength, hope and courage.
Everyone is invited to participate in this time of prayer. To join, call (605) 475-4000 and use Code #501844. Prayer Changes EVERYTHING
Prayers Can’t Be Answered Unless They Are Prayed
Life without purpose is barren indeed
There can’t be a harvest unless you plant seed,
There can’t be attainment unless there’s a goal,
And man’s but a robot unless there’s a soul…
If we send no ships out, no ships will come in,
And unless there’s a contest, nobody can win…
For games can’t be won unless they are played,
And prayers can’t be answered unless they are prayed…
So whatever is wrong with your life today,
You’ll find a solution if you kneel down and pray
Not just for pleasure, enjoyment and health,
Not just for honors and prestige and wealth…
But pray for a purpose to make life worth living,
And pray for the joy of unselfish giving
For great is your gladness and rich your reward
When you make your life’s purpose the choice of the Lord.
Helen Steiner Rice
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Matthew 21:22

1 Chronicles 16:33
Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth.
A Psalm of David.
1 THE EARTH is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it. [I Cor. 10:26.]
2 For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the currents and the rivers.
3 Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted himself up to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully. [Matt. 5:8.]
5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation [description] of those who seek Him [who inquire of and for Him and of necessity require Him], who seek Your face, [O God of] Jacob. Selah [pause, and think of that]! [Ps. 42:1.]
7 Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.
8 Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O you gates; yes, lift them up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.
10 Who is [He then] this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah [pause, and think of that]!
Genesis 11 And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good.
“Building God’s House,” Akron District Home & Foreign Missions COGIC, TODAY, Saturday, September 14, 2013 @ 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. St. Ashworth Temple COGIC. Speakers, Evangelist Dr. Mae Walker, Elder Dr. Charles Bell, Mother Deborah Scruggs, Keynote: Missionary Arlene Bond.
Believer’s Power Ephesians 6:10
The Believer’s Power is The Armor of God
When we understand this, Jeremiah 32:17 states, “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” This verse suggests that the laws of God and the laws of nature are all part of the believer’s Power.
We too can appropriate the power of Jesus when we believe. “…be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Ephesians 6:10-11
This power exalted Him above all to the highest position in heaven and on earth. It is the same power Paul had in mind when he wrote, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13

The Priestly Blessing
The Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron and his sons, This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’
Numbers 6:22-26 NIV
If you can and are in the area, try to make this Revival..it will be well worth your time and you will be blessed without a doubt. Speaker: Evangelist Sharon Blevins. Three nights only, July 24-26, 2013 @ 7:00 p.m. St. Ashworth Temple, 1086 Vernon Odom Boulevard, Akron, Ohio 44307.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV
Lord, help me to understand that my love for others grows out of your unconditional love for me. Help me love others by getting out of the way. O Lord, help me, guide me, move me to keep loving, sharing and caring so that others can see less of me and more of you!
