Throughout our lives we are often compared to many things. Our sincere
desire is that these representations are vividly illustrated with positive
images that flatter our actions, desires, and achievements. Godly men and
women are likened in the Scriptures to sturdy trees. From the pulpit,
Dr. Kenneth D. Phelps, like the tree, stands straight for God to
teach, guide, and protect. A director of deliverance, this is a man who
firmly believes in nurturing his flock by providing opportunities and
options, like blessings, to those willing to receive them. Among the
congregation, he is mentor, friend, partner, and pastor. In times of
delight or despair, he shines as a light of hope exemplifying the glory
of God’s infinite wisdom, strong in his convictions, confident in Christ.
“He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth
forth his fruit in his season” (Psalm 1:3 KJV).
