Greetings in the Precious Name of Jesus!

Pastor Mike Thomas is a Spirit filled, baptized believer, and anointed servant of God. In 1992, he received eternal salvation in the name of Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:38; 2:4) He and Pammela have been married for 30 years. They have four adult children and nine grandchildren.

Pastor Mike accepted God’s call to ministry in 1993. His spiritual apprenticeship began at Piercing Faith Church (formerly, Apostolic Faith Temple), in St. Paul, MN. The (late) honorable Bishop AZ Jones, Sr. was his Pastor, mentor, spiritual father, and friend. Perhaps equally important is the anointed leadership, friendship, and mentoring he received from Sr. Pastor, Suffragan Bishop AZ Jones, Jr.

Pastor Mike participated in the Aenon Bible College Ministerial Preparation Program and became a licensed minister in 1995. He also completed Aenon’s Ordination Preparation Program while serving at Piercing Faith Church. In 2004, he was ordained (Elder) by the honorable (MWDDC) Diocesan Bishop, Richard D. Howell, Jr. at a consecration ceremony held in Minneapolis, MN. “Elder Thomas” continued to serve in leadership at Piercing Faith Church for 13 years. He and Pammela relocated to Greenville, SC in 2008.

Pastor Mike Thomas also earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Pastoral Studies from Holmes Bible College, Greenville SC. He often says, “On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”

1st Lady Pammela Thomas

Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

I’m 1st Lady Pamm Thomas of the PrayerWorks Church. In 1978 I was filled with the precious gift of the Holy Ghost, speaking in other tongues as the Spirit of God gave utterance. I was baptized in Jesus name shortly thereafter at Piercing Faith Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I continued as a faithful and active member for 30 years.

During that time, as I was being educated in the Word of God, I was also attending the University of Minnesota where I received my B.A. in Sociology. Over the years I did volunteer work as the Administrative Assistant to the Senior and Co-Pastors, Suffragan Bishop Emeritus, AZ Jones, Sr., and Suffragan Bishop & Pastor, AZ Jones Jr., respectively. I also directed the church choir for 21 years.

In 2008 Pastor Thomas and I re-located to Greenville, South Carolina in obedience to the call of God. The premise of our ministry is built upon the Love of God which is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. We would love to either introduce you to or share with you the Love of God and His Word. Come worship with us real soon and God bless!
