About Us: Here’s My: Who, What, Why, How,and When…

About Us: Here’s Our: 1.Who: Hello, I’m Carlton Joshua Bruce, SR. another century 21 disciple. 2.What: Our discipleship goal is to share bread.  I’m from Guyana, South America, and grew up hearing money called “bread”, which makes sense.

A Good Understanding About Tithing

A Good Understanding About Tithing Recently, we ran across the story of Marie Holmes and the lawsuit by a pastor who claimed his church was owed 10% or the tithe of her lottery winnings.
