Hi, everyone. I hope you can take a few moments and watch the video below that will give our Transforming Truth friends and family an update about my health and my plans for ministry for the rest of this year. As mentioned in the video, there is also a link to a more detailed explanation that covers my current health status, what God has spoken during my battle with cancer and what our plans are for the Transforming Truth ministry for the remainder of 2020. Blessings to each of you!

Pastor Jeff, I will miss you during this well deserved and much-needed sabbatical. I’m happy for what this time will mean for you and your family. But honestly, I’m also saddened that I won’t be hearing from you. The Lord has used you to deliver instruction, encouragement, and yes transforming truth, which has had such an impact on my life. (I’m thinking now about the series on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, the series on King David, Samson and so many more).
I’m grateful for your obedience to the Lord and steadfastness in teaching and preaching. Anytime I see leadership as you have exhibited, I know it’s not easy. I know that there is much resistance from our adversary, especially against those who are assigned to shepherd the flock.
Wait on the Lord, worship the Lord, and rejoice. I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
My Sunday mornings won’t be the same without you, Man of God! Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you take this sabbatical. May it, this time… give you ALL that you have given out to so many, for so many years of ministry. God bless you!! We’ll be waiting, patiently, prayerfully and lovingly for your refreshed return… in God’s time.
Hi, Shaun. Thank you for your kind words. Just to clarify: none of our media streams will cease. We will still broadcast on television in our normal 3 slots, including Sunday morning. The only difference is that they will be re-broadcasts of messages previously aired in 2018-2019. We went through the archives and handpicked some messages that we knew God had used in the past to help many. If you tune in, you can expect to watch those messages which should be healthy for your soul.
The series on suffering would be a great help if available on DVD or as a book. I am in a growing/learning time also. It is easy to recognize it as a time when God is refining me and as a time when He is preparing me for the next level in life and service. But having the right reaction to it is more difficult. I am not griping or complaining. God is on the throne and His will be done. I gladly accept and yield to His plan. But even though many care and support, it is a lonely place….if one can ever be lonely as a temple of God. I remember how heavy His load was on the way to Golgotha.
Bless you and your family, Preacher. I have listened to your broadcasts since you were at Meadow (and we both had much more hair)! Praying that Jesus will continue to draw near to you and that you would just abide and receive love…so much that you will be overwhelmingly humbled by His immeasurable goodness and grace. My you and your family literally be brought to tears in His love and praise to God.
Thank you, Eric! And thank you for being a loyal viewer. I look forward to getting back in the saddle in the not-too-distant-future!
