The Pentecostals of Denton, Denton, NC
By: Pastor Ronnie Timmons

Church Planters face a "catch 22" situation. It takes a congregation of established saints to affordably build a church, while having a nice church facility makes it easier to win and establish those saints from your community. Our Church-in-a-Day has bridged that gap, catapulting us years ahead of what would otherwise be a realistic timeline of a new church construction. 
Church planters face another obstacle...financing. Because of the infancy of the church, traditional banks can be reluctant to finance a new church construction. When our local bank said “no,” the Church Loan Fund said “yes!” In my opinion, the Church Loan Fund could better relate to our needs, and they were able to offer terms that we could afford.
After much planning and preparation, along with skilled labor from the North Carolina District and surrounding states, we built a Church-in-a-Day on October 4th, 2019. We are very blessed that in North Carolina our North American Mission’s Director, Reverend Floyd Morris, is also a licensed general contractor. His experience and advice was critical to the success of our Church-in-a-Day throughout the entire process. The Southeast Regional Director for NAM, Reverend Roy Barnhill, was in attendance along with the NAM General Secretary, Reverend Bill Hobson. North Carolina District Superintendent, Reverend Wayne Huntley, led us in prayer before we raised the first walls at 6:00 am, as well as preached our building dedication service on November 8th. 
Denton, North Carolina is a small town and not a day goes by that someone in the community doesn't compliment our new facility. The new families we are currently discipling are a direct result of our Church-in-a-Day! We are blessed and we are grateful!
