Crusade coming to Seaford
As part of a year-long mission, For His Glory Ministries Inc. will host a two-day Crusade for Christ in Seaford, Friday, June 15, and Saturday, June 16.
For His Glory Ministries has hosted crusades this year in Easton, Cambridge, and Salisbury, Md., and are now about to visit Delaware with crusades in Seaford, Dover and Wilmington.
"This has all been part of a year-long mission for this ministry in hopes of stirring up the people of Delmarva to love Christ more and to seek Him more," said the Rev. Mike Maloney, who with his wife Jane founded For His Glory Ministries Inc.
Praise and worship are a big part of the crusades. According to Jane Maloney, "God's presence is so manifest during praise and worship. There's just something about the body of Christ coming together, regardless of denomination, praising and worshipping in one accord that God loves, honors and blesses with his manifest presence. For I have never seen it fail, when you have God's presence, people are healed, delivered, saved, and changed forevermore. People walk away renewed, refreshed, and stirred to live for Christ. This is the reason we do the crusades."
The Rev. Maloney added: "The crusades are an effort to unify the body of Christ, bringing together people and pastors from all denominations. We will humble ourselves and pray, seek the face of God and make our requests for unity in our communities, deliverance from drugs and alcohol, restoration of our homes and families, and healing in our souls and bodies. I'm asking people to come and let us worship together in in one accord."
The Seaford Crusade will be held in the Seaford Middle School auditorium on Stein Highway. Doors will open at 7 p.m.; services will begin at 7:30 p.m.
There is no admission charge. For more information, call (410) 228-6194.
