According to Pastor of the Word of God Church, Dale Stowe, the church is â€śgoing into the final phase of the vision that God has given for this ministry.â€ť
â€śThis ministry has always been focused on the vision of where God is taking us, said Stowe. â€śIt 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€ť

Here are three basic muffin recipes that we teach here at TSTC Culinary. They are very easy, and you can make them any flavor you like simply by adding any of the following:
Pumpkin puree with pumpkin pie spices
They are nicer if you sprinkle the top with a course sugar before you bake them----gives them a crunch and a sparkle.
Hint: Cake flour makes these really light and fluffy!
