Our Testimonies

Phil & Sharon Clayton
Listed below is a short summary of the ministries God has allowed my wife and I to be involved in along with what the Lord is leading us to do. It is our goal to bring churches where they can not only support their pastor but also to be able to support missions around the world. Any finances that you could help us with will be recycled into world missions. The churches that I have been able to pastor have developed into strong mission giving churches.
