Our hearts were pricked the first time we visited the Palm River Community, as we began working with a local church. The vibrancy, diversity, and authenticity of the people of Palm River was truly something inspiring. As we began to meet and minister to more and more families, it was apparent that there had been a lot of discouragement, disappointment, and even abandonment within lives of the people through the stories they shared. After much prayer and provision from our gracious God, we were led to begin our next chapter in ministry, a new work; Preservation Church of Tampa. We prayed constantly or the Lord to give us a path toward pure miministry to share His redemptive love within the local community and His church.
The goal of Preservation Church is to simply love on the people in the community and share the gospel message that we all have been preserved for His glory, and set apart for work in His vineyard. We are going to use a simplistic approach to meet the spiritual and natural needs of the families we encounter. Our first outreach initiative "Prayer and Produce” began in April 2017. In this effort, we started going door to door to share the good news, offer prayer, and bless the families with fresh produce to meet their physical need. In 2019 we will have our first service at the Element Church located at 2702 Causeway Center Dr, Tampa, FL 33619 . The leadership and families at Element church have not only been a great support and prayer warriors for us during this season, but have also been led by the Holy Spirit to allow us to fellowship at their beautiful and spacious facility for our services on Sunday evenings.
