May 27th was a day of worship and celebration for Dr. Mary Hughes, Pastor and Founder of the Jesus Full Gospel Church of Waskom, celebrating nearly a quarter of a century of serving the community.
From a prayer group known as the Waskom Arms Apartment Bible Study Ministry, to the present church facility with several hundred members in the congregation and thousands saved with a consolidation of churches in the Ark-La-Tex area with the JFGC as the marquee full gospel church.
The church grew and new ground was broken in the building of the present worship sanctuary, which was completed on October 3, 1998. As of October 12, 2014, the Jesus Full Gospel Church was paid in full. God is good and the church continues to grow, with Pastors Nada Moore and John Benson at the helm, with expansions in the children’s ministry in 2017, and the churches annual “Picnic In The Park” every Fall since 2016.
The day began with a full gospel praise and worship, Pastor Joseph Lindsey, guest Pastor Donzell Hughes, Sr., from the St. Elizabeth Baptist Church shared the message and celebration with the congregation and staff of the JFGC.
