Chairman Simeon Strauser Opens PA Regional Rally

The pastors and minsiters of PA Region 1 West gathered last June 10 for the first Regional Area Minister’s (RAM) Rally held at New Life Fellowship of Pittsburgh in E. McKeesport, PA. The following is a report from Pastor James Capets, Regional Pastor for PA Region 1 West / Pittsburgh:

The first Regional Area Minister’s Rally (RAM) was held June 10 at New Life Fellowship of Pittsburgh. With 25+ attendees of FGA ministers and their guests it was considered to be a good beginning to the long term goal of regular fellowship within the region. The rally began with a time of singing, praise and worship, led by Lindsay Zummo, worship leader at New Life Fellowship. A video message was presented by Chairman Simeon Strauser outlining some of the outward direction and goals of Full Gospel Assemblies. The remainder of the day’s messages from Pastor Ed Popovich prior to lunch, and Pastor Jim Capets after lunch, focused inward to encourage and revitalize the ministers as they seek to fulfill their callings. Cindy Smith shared some of her experiences from her recent missions trip to the Phillipines, her passion for what God is doing there was evident.  Attendees were also given the opportunity to share about their ministries, with particular attention given to the challenges they are currently facing in them.

A wonderful lunch was provided to the guests by the church members of New Life Fellowship. The day ended with a time of prayer and prophetic ministry to all those seeking it.

We praise God for what He is doing in the Western PA Region of FG and thank Him for the faithful labor of Pastor Jim Capets and the brethren of New Life Pittsburgh. Plans are underway to hold another RAM rally in 6 months time. Details to follow.

The messages presented by Pastor Ed Popovich and Pastor Jim Capets are also going to be available for viewing through the New Life Fellowship of Pittsburgh’s YouTube Channel, link to be found at
