Bishop and Dr. Page are the parents of three children, the grandparents of seven, great grandparents of two, and the “spiritual parents” to thousands. We have gathered together, to honor and to celebrate the long journey of our anointed and prestigious Pastor and Co-Pastor. Another year has passed, and we have both of them with us. Be aware that whenever they enter the sanctuary, we know without a shadow of doubt that God reigns.
They have been unfaltering in teaching, preaching, and counseling. They have given us loyal support along the way. For out of pain, came power; the power to live holy. “Let the Elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word and doctrine” (First Timothy 5:17).
We, the congregation of the Greater Highway Deliverance Temple, offsprings, and friends congratulate you on fifty years of steadfast service within the community, and abroad. Your love for each other, for God, and for the Bible are an inspiration. May the Lord Jesus Christ continue to bless both of you.
