I want to let everyone who reads this know that I am far from perfect but with God's help, I will continue to do his work.
I started drinking when I was 12 years old and by the time I was 15 I was an alcoholic. At age 17, I started smoking cigarettes and marijuana. I joined the army at age 18 and served my country for 3 years.
In 1983, I met my wife and we became engaged a couple months later. After 1 1/2 years, my drinking and smoking got the best of me and my fiancé (who is now my Gorgeous Wife) threw me out. About 1 month later, I got drunk and high for 3 days because I got angry at her. That turned out to be a good thing! Why you might ask? The reason was because after 3 days I woke up telling my friends that I needed a preacher. They all thought that I had lost my mind, but I searched for a preacher anyway. When I found one, he referred me to an older preacher who had been through similar situations. I gave my life to Jesus Christ in his living room.
I then started going to Calvary Assembly of God (which is now called The King's Mansion) in 1985. Shortly after I gave my life to Jesus, my fiancé and I got back together and we were married. She has been my one and only for over 30 years now.
My ministry at the church began with teaching the little children, middle school children and on to the teenager class. After teaching the teens' I went back to the little children for a short time. During this time, I was studying to receive my local license to be able to preach and teach the Bible. After receiving my local license, about 1 year later, I received a general license to do weddings and funerals as well. Further study, allowed me to become a fully ordained minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
It wasn't long after this, that the assistant pastor of the church became ill and was no longer able to complete his ministry work. I was asked to take over as assistant pastor. However, within the next year, the Pastor of the church moved to Arkansas and the congregation voted me in as Pastor of The King's Mansion Church on October 4th, 2009 and I have been Pastor ever since.
I have been devoted to this little church for over 30 years now and have no intentions of changing those devotions. I will be here until God tells me to move on and I don't see that happening anytime soon. So while I am not perfect, I am willing to help in any situation. My cell is usually on and my home doors are always open. If I can Help in any way, I will. If I can't help, I will do my best to steer you in the right direction.
May God richly Bless You in all that you do.
Pastor Mathew W. Littlejohn
