NMCS 25th Anniversary

Can you believe it?!!! NMCS is 25 years old!!! It has been a great privilege and a great honor to have been a part of this ministry from the very beginning. I was in the service when the church voted to start it, helped dig mud out of the foundation footers, and was sitting behind a desk on the very first day. As I look back over all of these years, what keeps coming to my mind are the words of the third verse of Amazing Grace which says, "Through many dangers, toils, and snares I have already come. T’was grace that brought us safe thus far and grace will lead us home!!!" God's grace has been so amazing through these years.

We have been blessed to see young men and women saved and many others surrender to the will of God for their lives. We have had graduates attend colleges in many different states and literally have alumni working in just about any career field that you can imagine. One of the great honors of my life has been watching former students walk back up those front stairs with their own children and say, "I want them to have what I had!!!" It is a marvelous work that God birthed here all those years ago, and as we look back now over the last two decades, we echo the words of Psalms 118:23 which says, "This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvelous in our eyes."

I want to personally thank God for this place - I'm so thankful I've been able to work here, I'm even more thankful that my kids are able to attend here. It has been a great gift in my life.

Serving the Lord with gladness,

Bro. Tony, Lam. 3:22
