The Four Horsemen of Downriver!


Take heed therefore to yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost has made you overseers (Elders), to feed the church of God, which he has purchased with his own blood. - Act 20:28

Last Sunday, Downriver Christian Community Church was honored and pleased to ordain four men into the position of church Elders. These men and their wives have served the local church faithfully for years with devotion and loyalty, serving to all as examples of commitment to Christ and the advancement his kingdom. These men have displayed the necessary Biblical requirements associated with the position and have now been recognized, appointed, and anointed to help oversee and direct the church affairs.

It is my great pleasure to welcome Bob and Sharon Cassady, John and Nancy Clinton, Ed and Donna Medrano, and Ken and Debbie O'Rourke to their new positions at Downriver Christian Community Church. I eagerly look forward to working with you side by side, establishing and advancing the kingdom of God in our locality. Having watched your lives for many years, it is rewarding to see men and women who have not only talked the talk, but who have also walked the walk. Like the four horsemen of the Apocalypse who were ordained and released to fulfill God's desires on earth, so have you been ordained and released to help fulfill God's desires in the Downriver area. Go forth with new vision and anointing. May God richly bless your lives, work, and ministries in a new and powerful ways!

Since an overseer (Elder) is entrusted with God’s work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. - Titus 1:7-9

Stay Holy, My Friends!

  1. I also am very blessed and I know each one personally and I'm very supportive of their new leadership role in this body at DCCC. God's blessing to each of you as you go forward to serve and grow in His church. God always gives us His best!

  2. It was a great day at DC3church. Four faithful anointed men of God were acknowledged and installed as elders at DC3. What makes it even more special is that they did not need public acknowledgement to start walking in there gifting, they have been doing it already for many years. Congratulations to Ken O'Rourke, Bob Cassady, John Clinton and Edward Medrano, God bless you brothers. There is an old slogan that Zenith Corp. used to have and it goes something like this... "The quality goes in before the name goes on." This is very true of these four men.
