Welcome Note

Pastor Abraham Thomas

National Secretary nacog secretary

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

As the national secretary for NACOG 2020, it is my great privilege and honor to welcome you all to this historic year as we celebrate together the Silver Jubilee of North American Church of God (India) Fellowship, on behalf of the executive committee. Looking back 25 years we can all say Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us. We are thankful to God almighty for bringing us this far as COG family. God has used many great servants of God, some of whom have left us and are now resting in the Lord, to carry the mantle of this conference and to keep its flame ignited and shining all the more brighter with each passing year. As a dedicated part taker of our conferences, from a very young age until now, I am grateful to God almighty for such godly men and women who took leadership in organizing and sustaining our conference this far. It has been a great blessing to me as well my family to be a part of this beautiful journey.

As we extend our welcome to each of you as national executive team and local committees, our prayer and hope is that all of us together will experience a refreshing, empowering, encouraging, and inspiring weekend in the presence of God. As our theme suggests in Psalms 34: 3 - O magnify the Lord with me; Let us exalt His name together - may our 2020 gathering be a time of unity in love, faith, and hope among the saints who come together from churches throughout the US and Canada. We remember and thank God for all our pastors, believers, and families who have invested their prayers, time, support, encouragement, and generosity of their financial resources. As you set your minds open to worship and praise with the musicians and speakers renowned in the Lord, it is our hope and prayer that this conference will bring deliverance and life-changing moments to many and bring many souls to the eternal kingdom of God. As we look forward to us exalt His name together’, if the coming of the Lord tarry’s, I truly believe that our upcoming conference will be a great time of blessing and revival for the people of God. Therefore, let us together we will prepare ourselves to glorify the name of God and exalt His name.

Finally, above all, let us give all the glory and praise to God for His faithfulness and provision. Once again, we welcome you to the 25th NACOG conference. Rejoice and be blessed in the presence of the Lord.

Blessings in Christ
