History

Bishop Henry W. Hearns

Under the leadership of Bishop Henry W. Hearns of Living Stone Cathedral of Worship in Littlerock California, in June 1995 Reverend John Clarke began a bible study in Palmdale California. The small bible study soon grew to Quartz Hill, and several locations in Palmdale, until there was a bible study meeting each weeknight.

The bible study grew and had a faithful core membership. Then in January 1997, what began as a small faithful bible study, became the Living Water Missionary Christian Church of Palmdale California.

Then in April 1999, the Lord impressed upon the heart of Pastor Clarke, that he should leave Palmdale to pursue a work in Laughlin Nevada.  It was at that time the Lord began to reveal to Pastor Clarke who was to continue the work of Living Water Missionary Christian Church.  At that same time, Minister Barry Jenkins began to receive numerous confirmations, that it was time to Pastor.

By September of 1999, Minister Barry Jenkins accepted the call of the Lord to this work, and was ordained as Pastor on October 10, 1999. In accordance with the mission and vision that the Lord has given to Pastor Barry, this “startup” church became the Greater Love Christian Fellowship.

Pastor Barry immediately took to work and by June of 2000. G.L.C.F. became a Foursquare church plant, and then by December of 2001 G.L.C.F. became a fully registered church of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel.

In 2005, Pastor Barry and his wife Cozzette heard the call of the Lord to relocate to the Fort Worth area, and continue to reach out to the community through the preached message, authorship, and bible study.

Today, this internet ministry is a continuation of the work of the Greater Love Christian Fellowship and Reverend Barry Jenkins. We provide a “hi tech” venue for prayer, ministering, and outreach. Our newsletters reach believers across the nation with inspiration and a present word from the Lord.
