Words of Encouragement Ministries             Edith Ellis Lykins

Words of Encouragement Ministries was formed in 1983, I have been in the ministry preaching and singing for over 30 years.  I have produced several gospel music projects for myself and Words of Encouragement.  I have recently produced 2 Cd's; one is called "Songs of Encouragement" it is a re-release of a cassette I had done in the 80's, the second one is called "50 Years Later," dedicated to my Dad and Mom.  I have joined the Green Meadow Gospel Music Association and the Kentucky Gospel Music Association.

My personal testimony starts when I was saved at 6 years old, filled with the Holy Ghost at 7 and then started singing.   At 21 years old  I started playing the guitar and writing gospel songs;  I have served God ever since.   I have 2 daughters, and one grandson and I have been widowed twice.  My whole life is dedicated to the Lord, serving him and doing what I can to reach the lost for God.

I have been anointed to preach and sing for the glory of the Lord and I have a powerful ministry to reach those that have gone thru the same things I have and to reach those that are less fortunate.  The poor, the down trodden, drug and alcohol addictions, single mothers, and so many more.

I was the pastor of the Trinity Full Gospel Mission for 5 years, we had a food pantry, gave out clothes, and gave spiritual counsel to those in need.  I also had the opportunity to preach and sing for a convention in Kenya Africa thru the internet; I am working with the Jesus Care Centre out of Bungoma, Kenya Africa with the pastors  Bro Godfrey and Sis. Ruth Wanyonyi.  God continues to Amaze me with what he is able to do, for nothing is impossible with God. 

I am presently the pastor of the Words of Encouragement Ministries Church of God, Salyersville, Ky.  I am also traveling and ministering in song.  I believe that a happy Christian is a busy Christian, being about my Father's business.  And that is what I love to do.  I am taking bookings for this year you can email me at sparrow416@foothills.net

God is calling all of us to minister to those that are lost and to those that are discouraged.  This world is so wicked and getting worse everyday  I Peter 4:18  And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?   So if we that are righteous are scarcely saved, then it tells me we need more then ever to be about the Fathers business.  Trying to reach the lost at any cost.  In the highways and byways compelling them to come in, before it is everlasting to late.
