Bishop Dale Bronner At Heart Of God Church6 min read
By: Sabrina C.
Hearing Bishop Dale Bronner preach ignited my heart for the word of God, flooded my mind with wisdom and seriously tested my typing skills!
Bishop Bronner is the Senior Pastor and founder of the Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral, an interdenominational ministry founded in 1991, thriving with more than 20,000 members to date. Not only is he a 4th generation Pastor, he’s also a 4th generation businessman being a part-owner of a multi-million dollar family-owned corporation, Bronner Bros.
Bishop Bronner imparts wisdom and insights not only for ministry but also for business. This resonates so much with our Senior Pastors of Heart of God Church (HOGC), Pastor Tan Seow How and Pastor Cecilia Chan, being both Pastors and business owners themselves (they share more about their journey here).
From the last time Bishop Bronner preached in our services, I still have goosebumps thinking back to all the moments of encounters I had with God in those services. Anyone who has sat in his services knows that almost everything Bishop preaches is a quotable quote (which explains my struggle to keep up with my moderate typing skills).
One of the messages he preached that impacted me deeply was that of the 4 elements of a calling. Bishop shared that the 4 elements of a calling consisted of, “Purpose, Passion, People, Place”. There was a twist at the end. A fifth element, “Price”. But we shouldn’t count that because we don’t let price dictate our decision to do things for God. We should not let price be our master, God should be our master!
I was so encouraged when he shared that God will help us fulfill our purpose and that He ultimately works things for our good.
“God will never leave you at a negative. What the devil meant for evil, God’s purpose prevails. Success is born out of failure!” The final punch point came when he took us through the 66 books of the bible and showed us where God was in each of them:
