He has served in almost every area of ministry in the Church of God in Christ. He was called to the ministry in 1992. On February 15, 2011, he was selected as Pastor of the House of Prayer Church of God in Christ in Ft. Worth, TX. Pastor Feltus and 1st Lady Janice Feltus are thrilled and blessed to serve this great congregation of believers. The theme God gave Pastor Feltus for House of Prayer is “FAITH FORWARD”. Exodus 14:15 states: And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward: Philippians 3:13-14 states: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. In the words of Presiding Bishop, Charles E. Blake – “I see us in the future and we look much better then than we do now.” Finally, in the words of Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 2:9 - But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. “FAITH FORWARD”
