After making a global impact though his faith in Jesus Christ, Bishop Wellington Boone is returning home.
Clinton International Church is hosting Boone during a special service scheduled for 11 a.m. Sunday, March 12, at 545 E. Tillery St. The Clinton native is the founder of the Fellowship of International Churches, which is described as a cross-cultural, global network of bishops, pastors, churches and Bible Schools.
Sr. Pastor Paul Blue is looking forward to the upcoming visit.
“It’s going to be a great honor to have someone of his stature in our city,” Blue said. “We’ll more than happy to have him come and speak.”
Now residing in Atlanta, the Sampson County has preached in large stadiums for Christian-based groups likes, Promise Keepers, an evangelical Christian organization for men. He’s also known for his work in racial reconciliation and books such as “Breaking Through,” “Holy Ghost Is My Friend,” “Dare to Hope,” and “Your Journey with God,” a personal accountability journal for Christians.
When Boone speaks, Blue believes the audience will walk away with a message about having a relationship with God.
“We’re a reflection of who God is,” Blue said. “We’re made in the image of God. You’ll really be challenged by what he’ll share.”
Across the Atlantic Ocean, Boone established Goshen Learning Centers to help children in South Africa. The organization is led by his daughter, Nicole Boone. In addition to creating organizations and literary work, Boone was also a national speaker at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Liberty University, Salvation Army and World Changers, Creflo Dollar. He’s also been featured on media outlets such as Fox News and the Christian Broadcasting Network.
