Pilgrimage To Pentecost

On behalf of Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. God has placed it upon his heart to call the Church Of God In Christ annually to a 50 day consecration of fasting and prayer, called the C. H. MASON PILGRIMAGE TO PENTECOST. Our desire is for God to fill His people with the Holy Ghost and to continue the revival that He started on the Day of Pentecost!

Over 2.9 billion people on the face of the Earth have NEVER heard the Gospel preached!
We need the power of the Holy Ghost to reach the world for Christ!

This consecration is NOT a departmental event or activity; this is a call for the ENTIRE CHURCH to seek the LORD.

C. H. MASON PILGRIMAGE TO PENTECOST starts Sunday, April 5, 2015 (Resurrection Sunday) through Sunday May 24, 2015 (Pentecost Sunday).  Attached are the 11 prayer requests that our leader desires for us to focus on during the 50 day consecration; so that we may have some type of unity, structure and strategy in our prayers.

You are NOT asked to read or recite these; but to catch the heart and spirit of the prayer requests and allow the Lord to use YOU to cover these (or similar) needs in prayer for at least 11 minutes of your prayer time every day for 50 days. This is why the consecration is also called 11/11/50.

You are requested to fast on Tuesdays and Fridays (COGIC’s traditional fast days) from Midnight to at least 12 Noon. Again, this is at the request of our Presiding Bishop and how the Lord is leading him. Your participation would be greatly appreciated!

We need your help:

  1. Please print off this letter and the 11 prayer requests and announce at all of your church, district, jurisdictional and departmental events.
  2. Also, please share this info on your social media, television and radio broadcasts.
  3. Please also resend this email to your distribution list.
  4. Please plan on having a huge Day of Pentecost celebration on Sunday, May 24, 2015!!!

The Presiding Bishop is requesting saints of ALL NATIONS to participate and also believers from other denominations are welcomed to join us, as we seek the face of God.

May God richly bless you as your participate in the mighty move of God!

Statement on Ferguson Police Shooting

We were saddened to hear of the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri.  All around the world, we are praying for their full recovery.   We are also praying for their families and their colleagues.

Law enforcement is absolutely necessary to preserve the peace throughout our nation.  As an organization, we strongly support the many men and women of high integrity who valiantly place their lives on the line each day in an effort to secure the public safety.

As events unfold in Ferguson, we continue to pray for the peace of that city.  Our fervent hope is that ultimately a strong and compassionate community will arise.

For the past 10 ½ years, Bishop Mathews and his devoted wife, Sharon Mathews, have served as full-time COGIC missionaries in South Africa. They have been married for 21 years and have 10 children.

Bishop Mathews says, “I'm honored that Presiding Bishop Charles E.  Blake, Sr. and the General Board have afforded me the opportunity to serve as International Missions President.  I am confident that thousands of saints of the Church of God in Christ will join me and answer the call to extreme commitment to The Great Commission through radical, relevant and innovative worldwide ministry.” 

Bishop Matthews was born in the United States and left a lucrative career in education to go on the mission field. He received a BA from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, an MA from the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana and a Doctorate of Theology from North Carolina College of Theology. He has authored six books and loves the ministry of worldwide missions.
