About our church
In 2022 First Assembly of God is celebrating 85 years of ministry to Saint Jo and the surrounding area. In 1937 the Lord laid it upon the heart of Rev. John Nothaf to move to Saint Jo and start a Pentecostal work. God blessed his obedience and First Assembly of God was planted and became a strong church that reached out to the community and area. The church was set in order as an Assemblies of God church on January 4, 1940.
Through the years God has sent many out from First Assembly to regions all around the world. Over 20 ministers have been called and sent out into full time ministry from First Assembly. Many of those were the product of a mighty revival that shook the church and area in 1966. Pastor Clyde Bell invited a young, single evangelist by the name of Garry Smith to preach a revival in the church. That revival lasted six weeks with scores of people saved and their lives touched.
We are not living on the past accomplishments of this church! We are looking forward to continuing that onward march for the Lord! As a matter of fact, we are going to have an 85th Anniversary celebration this spring and will bring back that young evangelist, and his wife Barbara, to stir the fire of revival!
First Assembly of God is made up of ordinary people like you who are experiencing God in their lives. You won't find a lot of hype around here - just a lot of good people loving God and loving people. Why not pay us a visit some time? You'll be glad you did!
