The Potter’s House Christian Fellowship Church of Lloydminster
We are a Pentecostal church committed to the mission of spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to all, and to proclaim the message of salvation to all who would believe and surrender their hearts to Him.
We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to set us free from our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness when we repent (turn from our sins) and determine to serve and live for Him. There are none outside the reach of His grace, and all that come to Him he will embrace and forgive, and work in their lives to change and transform. It is our mission, our desire, and our heart’s cry, that you would open your heart to Jesus and let Him into your life, and allow Him to make the changes that will shape you and mold you into the person you were meant to be, because that is the very thing people are looking for and striving to attain to.
We do invite you to church to explore the depths of Gods’ grace and love for you, and find the forgiveness you need, and reach the potential and destiny that God has intended for you.
In 1970 Wayman and Nelda Mitchell moved to Prescott to take over a small, struggling congregation. Shortly after arriving, God saved a number of young hippies who were very different than anyone in the church. But as they were welcomed, God began to pour out His Spirit on the congregation.
As Pastor Mitchell sought to reach young people, they saw the possibilities of the “coffee-house” concert ministry. At the first concert, they ever tried as an evangelistic tool, more than 200 young people attended, with many saved. Out of this, a regular concert ministry was birthed. 2 nights a week, bands played, testimonies of salvation were given and the Gospel was preached, with many being saved each night. From the beginning, Pastor Mitchell understood that concert ministry was to be a training ground of ministry development; It was run by young people who were committed to Jesus and His church. From the beginning, people who had been radically converted sought to share with others what God had done in them. Personal evangelism began to be one of the basic foundations of the church.
Then came impact teams: Groups of people that would travel to other nearby cities to help people there experience what God was doing here. Over time, God began to reveal His plan of discipleship: Training young couples for ministry within a local church. In 1973 the first couple was launched directly into the ministry – and God blessed them! Churches then began to be planted throughout the Southwestern United States, and then further across America as converts prayed for the Gospel to be preached in their hometowns.
In 1978 the first couple was planted into another nation – Australia; and we discovered the Gospel worked there, just like it did here. After that, churches were planted in Mexico, Holland, and Germany then as we came to understand God’s global mission more and more, churches began to be planted throughout the world. To date, there are over 2100 churches in 43 US states and 114 nations of the world.
