Chuck Myricks Jr.
By Carl Stagner
The Church of God has a rich history of raising up outstanding musical talent. From Doug Oldham to Edward Cumberbatch, from Sandi Patty to Alanna Story and numerous others, musicians in the Church of God have faithfully expressed their joy in the Lord through song. No list of our Movement’s stellar musicians could be complete without the name of Chuck Myricks. The son of the highly-acclaimed Cleo Myricks needs little introduction as he has clearly established a name for himself in the music industry, in both Christian and secular business circles, and across the Church of God and beyond. Of course, Chuck’s mission isn’t to make a name for himself but to lift up the name of Jesus. In so doing, he already wears several ministry hats and won’t be removing any of them any time soon.

Sunday school in Bolivia.
By Paul and Kattia Jones
Once upon a time, in a small Church of God in Bolivia, South America, there was a four-year-old boy named Joel. He was restless. He participated in very little during Sunday school, and he did not pay much attention to his teacher Irene, either. In addition, he showed his fist to any child who kept looking at him. This type of behavior drew the attention of missionary Kattia Jones, who decided to speak with the teacher. The conversation led to another topic that the missionary suspected was the main reason why Joel behaved that way. Continue reading
