The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, 
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  Isaiah 40:3


From the Office of Chairman Simeon Strauser

In the same manner that the Lord God spoke through the prophet Isaiah for the people of Israel, God is speaking into the Church of today!  By His voice, He shall bring comfort to his people (Is. 40:1).  To them who are called by His name, charged with the work of the kingdom, He is calling into His harvest (Mt.9:38).  

Calling all FG Clergy 

In this day, may all the servants of our Lord Jesus, make haste to labor with a heart of zeal.  May we heed the call, going therefore and making disciples of all nations in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Mt. 28), teaching that which our Lord Jesus commanded.

This October is a calling together of FG clergy and leadership – a preparing for the season of harvest ahead.  Our Lord God is leading in the path ahead as preparation is made for His miracle working power in our midst! 


Conference Topics and Breakout Sessions

‘Preaching the Pure Word of God’, ‘Standing for Christ in Challenging Times’, ‘Forging Ahead’, ‘The Post Pandemic Church’, and ‘Educating Leadership For Tomorrow’!  

Evening revival services will include ‘Laying on of Hands’ and anointing for FG clergy and PST graduation and student recognitions.

Come believing – you will return filled and renewed in the Spirit.


24 Years of Ministry Celebrated

Pastoral Commitment In Midst of Pandemic

Pastor Thomas Dowler’s vision for 2021 is that he will continue to carry the banner of the Lord – that all will see who he serves, and be touched as a result.  While resident of Columbia, MO., Pastor Dowler leads the Gospel Ridge Church (top left) of St. Robert, MO. 

Pastor Dowler states, for the past 24 years, ‘I have driven to this little church from 95 miles away’.  He goes on to describe that he has always felt the need to. In speaking of the last 24 years, he says, ‘it has been one of the highlights of my life’, and while the numbers maybe deceptive, because many have come and gone, many ‘have had the chance to hear of this wonderful Jesus we love and serve’.  Concerning the ministry throughout 2020, pastor Dowler shares, ‘the pandemic had hampered our gatherings for a time, but we resumed a normal schedule at the church. I believe we have come to appreciate how precious our time together is. I found myself doing a couple of virtual programs with little positive feedback. We really rather prefer the live congregation!  Gospel Ridge Church is situated along the major highway of interstate 44 and at one of the gates of the army base of Fort Leonard Wood.  We have been privileged to have had some of the soldiers visit over the years.  My heart goes out to the fine young people who wear the uniform of this country!  We will never really know the effectiveness of the ministry to we stand in the presence of the King’.  

Full Gospel Assemblies joins Pastor Thomas Dowler and the Gospel Ridge Church in celebrating the 24 years of ministry unto the Lord Jesus Christ.

Precious greetings in the name our Lord Jesus Christ.  Church, in this day, we give honor and glory unto His name, the name above all others.  Christ Jesus, speaking of himself unto the disciples in the days leading to his crucifixion, spoke “Behold…….. the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again (Mt. 20).  Blessed be his holy name!   As we prepare with all God’s people the world over to celebrate our risen Savior, let us be reminded of Luke’s recording, wherein the disciples, following the breaking of bread with Christ, confirmed “The Lord is risen indeed”!!  Let us offer the high praise of thanksgiving… ‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time’ (1Peter 1:3-5 ESV). 

Proclaim the message, Jesus is risen!
