Dr. Thomas has been saved for over 36 years and has been preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ for over 31 years. In January 2002 Pastor Thomas received an honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity from the Adonai International Theological Seminary in recognition of his service to the Lord, his significant contribution to the church, and his untiring years of study in the Word of God.
Dr. Thomas’ commitment to the Showers of Blessings ministry is to be commended. In March 2009, with God’s help, Dr. Thomas completed construction on a new edifice where an increase of souls has come to be saved and delivered. In March 2013 being directed by the Holy Ghost, Dr. Thomas located an over 29,000 sq. ft. complex and was instrumental in purchasing this property to meet the needs of the members and most importantly the youth, which is now called the Showers of Blessings Executive Plaza.
Dr. Thomas’ achievements, faithfulness, and dedication in ministry has enabled him to received many other commendations, promotions, recognitions, awards, and honors, such as: Pastor of the Month, Pastor of the Year, Outstanding Community Leader, California Northwest Chief Adjutant, Executive Assistant, Executive Board Member, Administrative Assistant and Senior Administrative Assistant in California Northwest Jurisdiction under the auspices of Bishop W. W. Hamilton, Jurisdictional Prelate. Currently under the leadership of Bishop Donald R. Murray, Jurisdictional Prelate, he yet maintains the position of Administrative Assistant in the California North Central Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction.
Dr. Thomas’ passion is to encourage and nurture people in the Word of God by teaching the importance of building one’s character in God and then operating in the kingdom principles of God. God has ordained, equipped, and placed His anointing on this mighty man of God for such a time as this. Now with God’s continued help we pray that he and the Showers of Blessings Church will become God’s model church for the community.
