In Mark, Chap. 5 vs. 23, Jairus, a ruler of the synagogue, acts on faith and desperately seeks out Jesus; “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.” Commemorating Father’s Day, Rev. Dr. Najuma Smith-Pollard delivered a powerful message entitled “A Father’s Faith Will Heal” at the Los Angeles ACLC Prayer Breakfast on Saturday, June 16th. Rev. Pollard is the Program Manager for the Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement at USC and she is also Founder and Pastor of the Word of Encouragement Community Church. Recognizing the vital role of fathers in the family, she called the fathers and grandfathers forward for prayer as her message concluded. Then ACLC Co-Chair, Dr. Nicholas Benson invited Rev. George Kazakos of the LA Family Church to explain the deep spiritual significance of the Holy Wine Ceremony and the Blessing of Marriage initiated by Father and Mother Moon. Host pastors of Christian Light MBC, Bishop J.L. Briggs and First Lady Peggy Briggs came forward to officiate a Blessing of Marriage and Family. It was a beautiful event.

Word Empowerment to Serve Ministries
What a powerful gathering it was today; to celebrate fathers for Father’s Day under the ministry of ACLC. As a father, Jarius had position, power, prestige, and access to privileges yet he had to seek out the Savior to gain access to what he did not have; the ability to save his child. I cannot express the fullness of the message as it exposed what you will do when something hits your life so intently that it causes you to repent and step into a position that will allow God to move in your life. God needs us to take a rightful stand for our children and for our families.

First Summit Evangelical Church
The speaker and the fellowship were excellent! It was truly a celebration of marriage and family. I left very inspired and look forward to getting together again.
Rev. George Kazakos
Los Angeles Family Church
The message today was something I needed to hear at this moment. A big part of faith is about endurance. Jarius just stood there waiting in faith, in his rightful position before God and his daughter was healed.
The ACLC Women in Ministry cut the cake of Victory !
“Women – God’s Heralds of Good News for the Family, the Community, the Nation and the World”
On July 7th, the 5 cities national subregional tour will come to Dallas, Texas. Rev. Marilyn Kotulek said “Mother Moon is transforming the world. And now she is extending that holy spirit power through ACLC Women in Ministry to the Women in clergy of America.” New York recently became such an amazing event – a gathering of 125 wonderful clergy and brothers and sisters especially welcoming address by President of Family Federation for a Heavenly USA Rev. Richard Buessing and the Director of Northeast Sub-Region 2, Rev. Demian Dunkley encouraged all the pastors to stand with True Mother and lead the world to Peace ! The event was held at 43rd Street in Manhattan which is the home of the Manhattan Family Church.
It started by Praise and worship lead by ACLC New York City Co-Chair, Bishop Jesse Edwards. The Holy Spirit always moves in and through him in a most powerful way that created an atmosphere of excitement and holy expectation.
We are grateful for the tremendous support of the pastors and ACLC Leaders of Sub- Region 2 and New York Family Church members organized by Rev. Tanya Edwards.
Archbishop Sulanch Lewis Rose– ACLC National Co- President and ACLC Women In Ministry Co- Chair did a magnificent work leading the whole program as the MC. We started on time and finished on time with a great spirit! A big thanks to Archbishop Lewis!
ACLC National Senior Co-Chairman, Archbishop George Stallings supported Women with total spiritual awakening by introducing the seminar lead by Women Clergy. Thanks to him for understanding the role of Women. We felt True Father’s heart of encouragement to Women.
The First presentation of True family Values teaching was “God’s original ideal” by Rev. Zena Sykes – Co- Pastor of United Missionary Baptist Church. She gave the presentation with such a bright and loving spirit that even Savannah – the Granddaughter of Archbishop Lewis heard some of the contents and got serious saying “is that true that we need to love our enemies?”
The next presentation was “What Went Wrong” by Dr. Patra Kidwell – Senior Pastor of God’s Ministry International. She gave such a powerful presentation that many amazing reports came after the discussion.
One minister said she thought the fruit was a literal fruit until now, but now she understand it is love and love relationship. Group discussions were followed by excellent reports and reflections. Pastor Joel Barnaby, who brought outstanding elders from the “Greater Philadelphia Church” inspired all with his depth of clarity about scripture and a moving and honest reflection on how when he was younger he wanted to strike
back at someone doing wrong, but was touched by the Holy Spirit and instead gave love. Dr. Madeleine Clark-Harris, from Delaware, gave a powerful reflection with such anointing that the audience felt was awakened to the presence of God! Dr. Tadaki Shimmyo, President Emeritus of UTS explains how St. Clementine and other Catholic Saints said the Fall was the misuse of love.
After the lunch, Rev. Marilyn Kotulek and Min. Reiko Jenkins – Co- Chairs of ACLC WIM gave an introduction to ACLC Women In Ministry and shared True Mother is the Only Begotten Daughter and we are to be begotten daughters and sons of God for our own Clans and Tribes.
Dr. Michael Jenkins – ACLC national Co- Chair with Mrs. Jenkins held Holy Wine Ceremony calling all the married couples to receive God’s anointing as “Blessed Couples” through the Blessing of True Parents – extending the grace of Jesus from the individual to the marriages and families.
The Final Highlight was the Keynote speech by Rev. Faith Barnaby – Rev. Tanya Edwards’ mother. Her absoluteness to God and her faith which she has Walked with until today was a true testimony for us to learn so deeply. Every word she spoke was a spiritual food to all of us. She is a living example of living God’s words for all of us. Thank you so much Rev. Barnaby!!
We truly enjoyed the fellowship and hearing all the messages. We concluded with the final prayer.
Thank you for all the support for this event to be successful.
Speaking to 14 clergy and guests on June 2nd, keynote pastor Rev. Bob Morgan, the Senior Pastor of the Rosewood Church, encouraged cooperation among pastors whose churches were located in the same neighborhood. They should work together to minister to the spiritual needs of that community. He also encouraged multiracial congregations.
