"A Ministry of Ministers"

Pastor Dianne E. Haynes describes Sword as a "Ministry of Ministers" as each is called to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.  To perform that Great Commission, the staff of anointed men and women of God are able to minister the Word of God as well as operate in specific capacities within this local church body. 

Each member of the ministry staff, on a rotating basis, conducts both Sunday Service ministry sermons as well as Wednesday mid-week service.
