"Pastor Lester Smith brought his Return of the Apostles ministry to our Community Good Friday Service sponsored by five churches from 5 denominations. The presentation of “100 verses of the cross from the writings of Peter, Paul and John” was riveting, inspiring, challenging and uplifting. Everyone sensed the presence and power of the Lord as the scriptures were brought to life in this powerful presentation. Our pastor’s group highly recommends the “Return of the Apostles."

The response from the congregation has always been very appreciative as they describe how the epistle becomes so much easier to understand and relate to."
