Macedonia A&P Ministries

Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it...


     Macedonia Apostles and Prophets Ministries falls under the umbrella of Gethsemane Apostles and Prophets Church, Incorporated led by Apostle Willie T. Lowery. While not straying from the Apostle's Doctrine or the teachings of  our leader Apostle Willie, Pastor DeWitt Youngblood, Jr. has realized a great need to expand the preaching and teaching ministry that Macedonia started in 2005 to ministries which service the total man. “We realize that only a small portion of your life is spent in church. We want to minister to you so that you know how to deal with the larger part of your life spent outside these walls, ” he says.

     Macedonia currently has established preaching, teaching, music, and dance ministries. We also offer tutoring to anyone in need. Most recently we began a relationship ministry to help people realize they are not alone in matters of the heart and remind them to put God first. Members of Macedonia have expressed desire to establish food and clothing ministries but our facility is not sufficient to house  the supplies needed for either ministry. Realizing that if you allow young people to use their gifts and talents in the church Pastor Youngblood is open to suggestions and requests for ministries. “I won’t say we will implement every suggestion, but we will listen and see if it is feasible at this time.”

     Below are just a few services the church currently offers:  


Our prayer is to work in conjunction with the Angel Food Program and the Metrolina Food Bank providing food to those in need. But, until we get an adequate facility we invite the community  and the homeless to services where we are feeding.


In addition to our regular ministries, we have an outreach ministry which touches the lives of homeless, sick, elderly and incarcerated members of the community.


This is a new phase of our ministry. We want people to know that whether single, dating, married, or divorced you are not alone in your situation and that you can build a Godly network of people who are trying to do the right thing in the eyes of God. The 2008 Relationship Series began with a Seminar called "First Things First" on February 16.


We are committed to promoting the welfare of young people who fellowship with us as well as those in the community. We have assisted with efforts such as back to school supplies for local schools, uniforms for local sports teams and coat drives for local young people.
