Former Maghaberry Pastor inducted at Portadown Elim

Pastor Johnny BrownFormer Maghaberry Elim Pastor Johnny Brown was inducted as the new pastor of Portadown Elim on Thursday 8th February.  After nearly four years as their loyal Pastor, Mr Brown preached his farewell sermon at an emotional service in Maghaberry Elim Pentecostal Church on Sunday evening 4th February.  Since his induction at Maghaberry in July 2003, Johnny has been greatly assisted by his wife Emma and they have been pleased to see increased attendances at Sunday worship and at the midweek Prayer and Bible Study meetings.  Over the last three years the numbers attending Sunday services have increased to about 60 - 80 and many have been brought to saving grace.  At their Healings Services they have seen tremendous results of answered prayer, when a woman was cured of cancer and a girl cured of a bowel disorder.

Pastor Brown, who has enjoyed nearly four years fellowship with the congregation of Meghaberry Elim says, ?The only reason I am leaving Maghaberry is that I felt the call to move to Portadown?.  Johnny, Emma and their 4 year old son Aaron will be moving to their new home in Portadown in about 5 weeks time.
