“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’” (New International Version, 1984, Matthew 25:23).
Keitha Hall and Tom Pace will be honored as the 2020 OJPM Sower Award and Spirit Award recipients at the Spring Luncheon on Tuesday, May 5th at The Petroleum Club, downtown Oklahoma City.
Corporal Hall has served in the OJPM Female Chaplain’s Office on the sixth floor of the Oklahoma County Jail since June of 2002. Hall is a detention officer with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office who sees her responsibilities going beyond the normal job description to minister to the incarcerated ladies.
Pace is a mentor, author, founder and CEO of Oklahoma City based PaceButler. Pace is a sought-after motivational speaker that is as comfortable sharing with students, inmates and civic leaders as well as fellow CEOs. Pace’s book, Mentor: The Kid & The CEO, is especially popular with inmates. Pace has donated thousands of copies of Mentor as well as The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren to OJPM that have been distributed throughout the 16 jails in which we minister.
Previous recipients for the Sower Award have been Jay Tompkins, Joe Williams, Argyl & Janel Dick and George Rennix. Previous recipients for the Spirit Award have been Steve Trice, Anthony Jordan, Tom & Kay Hill and Jason Trice.
OJPM uses these awards to acknowledge servants who put their faith into action and have had a significant impact on God’s kingdom through its ministry. The Sower Award is for a ministry volunteer who has served directly to touch the inmates and the Spirit Award is for a financial supporter that has undergirded its outreach and discipleship with the inmates.
The Spring Luncheon is Tuesday, May 5th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at The Petroleum Club, 100 N. Broadway, Oklahoma City. Individual tickets are $25.00. Tables of eight can be purchased for $200.00. For more information and tickets visit our website at ojpm.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 405-917-2242.
Keitha and Tom challenge me to sow the gospel each day in the power of the Spirit. Join with me at our Spring Luncheon to thank the Lord for these two precious servants!
I want to give a shout-out to Bill Farley, OJPM Development Director. Bill announced Team 23 in February’s newsletter as our push to cover the $50,000 JASCO Giving Hope Foundation match. You will note in this month’s key graphic that we are up to $37,390. My prayer is that we reach this by or make it at our Spring Luncheon.
Unleashing the captives,
