According to Pastor of the Word of God Church, Dale Stowe, the church is âgoing into the final phase of the vision that God has given for this ministry.â
âThis ministry has always been focused on the vision of where God is taking us, said Stowe. âIt has never meant to be a churchy experience, it has always been a tool to allow the Holy Spirit to work in those who are called. Training your ears through the Word of truth to be able to hear God's small still voice so that we can be led by the Spirit of God.â
