The name "Manifest Sons of God Ministries" was first revealed to then Elder Lendow when he was still a member of Second Refreshing Spring COGIC in 1994. At which time Elder Lendow started producing a newsletter by that name. He and then Evangelist Alma C. Lendow continued to labor there in the vineyard under the leadership the late Superintendent Richard A. Bouknight.
The Scripture Basis:
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Romans 8:19
Which is a very controversial passage for many who lack understanding but God revealed the truth of this passage to Elder Lendow and showed him that his call was to help raise the children of God up to the level of mature sons of God.
Elder Lendow continued in faithful labor until the call to pastoral ministry in May of 1999. After (13 years and 7 months at Second Refreshing Spring) The word "Go" was spoke into the heart of Elder Lendow, which was also confirmed by Evangelist Lendow. Pastor Bouknight was made aware of the good tidings from the Lordto which he gave his blessing. Elder Lendow was felt lead to finish out the year there with the Second Refreshing Spring family and to commence the ministry in the new millennium. On January1, 2000 the ministry was officially opened.
With a core group of (5) five charter members, the work of the ministry began, and the Lord added to the church such as should be saved. And not only working in the local ministry but the Lord opened doors on the foreign field for the pastor to minister.
