His heart for serving God’s people remains consistent as he focuses on his service.
Pastor Morgan’s ministry is best accurately described in Isaiah 61:1-2 NKJV
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
