 Men's Ministry Team 

By the leading of the Holy Spirit the men in our
church took part in this
Father's Day Blessing & Pledge.

The Blessing
1.  Fathers must pass His Word on to the next generation.
“For He established a testimony in Jacob, And appointed a law in Israel,
Which He commanded our fathers, That they should make them known to their children;
That the generation to come might know them, The children who would be born,
That they may arise and declare them to their children,
That they may set their hope in God, And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments;”
Psalms 78:5-7 NKJV

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when
you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.”
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 NKJV
2.  Fathers must pass His promises on to the next generation.
“For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the LORD, who has mercy on you.
“O you afflicted one, Tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems,
And lay your foundations with sapphires. I will make your pinnacles of rubies,
Your gates of crystal, And all your walls of precious stones.
All your children shall be taught by the LORD,
And great shall be the peace of your children.
In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me.
Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake.
“Behold, I have created the blacksmith Who blows the coals in the fire,
Who brings forth an instrument for his work;
And I have created the spoiler to destroy.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.”
Isaiah 54:10-17   NKJV
3. Fathers must pass His covenant blessings on to the next generation.
““Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel.
Say to them: “The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” ’
“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
Numbers 6:23-27 NKJV
The Pledge
I will, as a man of God, pass His Word,
His promises and His covenant on to the next generation and the next, to the best of my ability.
I ask you, Father, let your Spirit anoint me, let your presence be known through me.
Let me be an example to my family.
Forgive me for my failings; forgive me for the times I have not brought honor to you.
Strengthen me to stand for righteousness in a lost and dying world.
And I will lay my hands on my children and grandchildren and audibly bless them in the Name of Jesus; so help me God.

Father's Blessing and Pledge

The Women's Ministry engages in social events and Bible studies. Checkout Facebook for future events.

Our children's pastors strive to teach your children about the love of Jesus Christ. We provide a safe and exciting environment. We believe each adult serving in our children's ministry has been called by God to serve and teach children. The children's sanctuary is very attractive and "kid friendly". We welcome you and your child to stop by and take a look around and meet our children's pastors.

Children's Ministry Staff

Thomas Akers - Children's/Youth Ministry Director

Lynn & Chad Tenny - 3rd thru 6th grades

Chad and Lynn have served in some capacity of Children’s Ministry for approximately 10 years. Lynn served as the Way of Holiness Nursery Director in 2003; 2004 - 2009 as the Assistant Children’s Ministry Director and 2009 – 2013 the Director of Children’s Ministry. They have returned to their calling after stepping back for five years to serve on the Children’s Ministry Team. 

Lynn and Chad have been married 25 years and have raised two children. Chad worksat Weyerhauser and Lynn is a Court Reporter for the WV Supreme Court of Appeals.

God has given them a love for the youth of this Church. It is their heart’s desire to equip the children with the foundation of Biblical truth and to help them cultivate their own personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is vital that children learn who they are in Christ prior to their teenage years.

They consider it an honor to serve the children and families of this area and are encouraged by the growth that they see in their students.

Christian Whetzel

Christian has served in children and youth ministries in some way for the past eleven years.  Being raised in church her whole life, she has seen the need for kids to learn Who God truly is at a young age.  Her prayer is that our kids will feel and know God's love for themselves, and she considers herself blessed to be a part of that ministry.

She is a radiology technologist turned stay at home mom of two adopted boys with special needs.  Christian has aquired some training when it comes to special needs.  She has personal experience  handling difficulties that some children have, and it is her passion to help and child that is stuggling with the world around them.

"But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the 
ministry of the Word."  Acts 6:4

New Beginnings is a group of ladies who meet every other Tuesday to pray for the needs in the church.  It is headed up by Susie Moneypenny and Wanda Arbogast.  Anyone is welcome to join them!


Our Prayer Shawl Ministry knits/crochets prayer shawls of various shapes, sizes and patterns.  The shawls are prayed over, anointed with oil and placed in the treasure chest at the front of the church.  They are available for anyone who would like one, either for themselves or to give to someone else.  The ministry is based on Acts 19:12 - "So that from his (Paul's) body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them."  

It is our desire that the person receiving a shawl will feel the peace, presence and comfort of the Lord.  The ladies take turns hosting the meeting in their homes every Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m.  Please call Vicki Hommes at 304-439-5303 or email her at for the weekly meeting place.  Anyone who would like to learn to knit/crochet is also welcome to attend!

Carrie Luzader is head of the Prayer Shawl Ministry

"The Maker of bright and beautiful things sends His beloved a bouquet of blessings too many to count, too costly to buy, too precious to waste, too dear to deny.  Hand-picked and bound by Love's crimson cord, delivered in person, a gift from the Lord." -Marleen Chase
