Last but not least, after 20 years of ministry - Rev. Denson views the greatest ministry that he has ever been called to serve has been that of being a faithful husband unto his wife (Rev. Theresa Denson) and being a loving father for his son (Storee Denson). He is grateful unto the Lord for "gracing" him with these blessed opportunities. Rev. Troy Denson's favorite scripture which awakens him to the "word" and "prayer" unto God early each morning, comes from St. John 15:7, which says, "If you abide in me, and my word abides in you, you can ask what you will and it will be done unto you".

And Remember... "Only What You Do For Christ Will Last".
