"praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people..." - Acts 2:47
Both Houses of California Legislature (Congress and Senate) and Hosanna Broadcasting Network gave recognition to the Pentecostal Missionary CHURCH of CHRIST (4th Watch)'s evangelistic work through the Surer Word Ministry and Bishop Jonathan S. Ferriol. The award was given during the HBN Clergy Breakfast held last June 27, 2015 in Los Angeles.
In attendance were more than 200 Pentecostal and evangelical pastors, christian leaders of para-church ministries around Los Angeles. They include christian authors, musicians and industry leaders. The Surer Word television program is the longest running locally produced program in Los Angeles. Remarkably, Bishop Jonathan is the only Filipino pastor during the event and many have shown interest with the church and Bishop Jonathan.
In his Facebook post, Bishop Jonathan wrote "I give back the glory to God for this trust and to our beloved Apostle for entrusting me witht eh work to operate a television ministry abroad! With this recognition, Bishop Jonathan said, "God has been impressing to me about radio ministry here." He believed this additional ministry will reach more people with the true gospel.
Last year, for the 25th Church Anniversary of the PMCC in South Bay, US President Barack Obama sent his congratulatory letter.
It was the first time that a US president has sent an official greetings to the church.
