We want to deeply thank Dennis Jernigan, and his wife, Melinda for their recent visit to CCF. Their fully exercised their hearts of ministry and encouragement to our body of believers, and we appreciate the worship and songs of deliverance he chose and sung over our people. We have included some of the resources and links related to his visit below.
If you are unfamiliar with Dennis Jernigan, in short, he has written songs such as “You Are My All In All”, “Thank You”, “Who Can Satisfy My Soul(There Is A Fountain)”, “I Belong To Jesus”, “We Will Worship The Lamb of Glory”,and many others.
He is a worship leader, husband for 31 years to his wife, father to nine children, and now welcoming grandchildren. He has also been walking in freedom since 1981 from his former homosexual identity and now takes great joy in sharing the grace and love of God with any who desire freedom in their own lives.
Here is a brief testimony of his life, taken from his appearance on the James Robison show, Life Today:
All of our Refresh classes will join Dennis on Nov. 8th at 9:45 am in the Worship Center for a personal Q&A session (9th grade-adult welcome to attend). If you have questions to ask Dennis, please submit them in advance by writing them on a card at the Info Center or anonymously submit them HERE:
