Pastor Katrina Deason and members of Liberty Prayer Chapel in Hinesville have a lot to celebrate. After eight years, the church has seen many goals come to fruition, and Liberty Prayer Chapel is impacting the community.
The congregation has a grand celebration planned. The event, which begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 2, will include a national recording artist and an international speaker.
Musician DeWayne Woods, who recently released a new CD, “My Life’s Lyric,” will perform a concert. Local recording artist Terry Newsome, who recently released his CD, “Soul’d Out,” will appear with Woods.
A portion of the concert proceeds will be donated to the Liberty County Manna House where Deason serves as director. Every year during the Prayer Chapel’s anniversary celebration, the church makes a donation to Manna House. “The church is responsible for feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and visiting those in prison,” Deason said.
At 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 3, Pastor Donald Battle of Divine Faith Ministries International in Atlanta will speak to the congregation. Battle has appeared on the Christian television station, TBN, many times. He will discuss empowerment and impartation at Liberty Prayer Chapel.
At 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 4, Dr. Cindy Trimm, world-renowned ambassador, speaker and author of the bestselling book, “Rules of Engagement,” will speak at the church. Trimm will conduct an invitation-only leadership course. At 6 p.m. that evening, Trimm will host an anointing service. On Sunday morning, Sept. 5, she will conduct the morning service.
“This is our eighth church anniversary, and the number eight means new beginning,” Deason said. “We are looking at a fresh, new perspective on ministry overall, communitywide and church-wide. I want God to get us better prepared to meet the needs of the military as they transition back. I am praying for a new, fresh perspective and new energy to complete the assignment in Hinesville.
“We must complete the mandate for taking care of the community. As the deployed soldiers come back to the community, we must be ready as a church to counsel, to pray and to meet their needs. I have a real heart for transition for when the soldiers return,” she said. “Dr. Trimm is a troubleshooter. She deals with organizations and social organizations that show you how to handle special leadership issues. God knows what the community needs as soldiers re-acclimate back into their homes, churches and communities. I am hoping that we will get a fresh perspective and a tender heart as to how to deal with the military.”  
Deason has plans for her church. “During 2010, my goals are to allow God to finish us up on the level we are on and promote us to the next level,” she said. “This year, some doors closed and some opened. It is time for new dimension. But we must complete where we are before going to the next level.”
In addition to her duties at the church and Manna House, the pastor has an early-morning gospel program on radio station WOAH 106.3.
“We have done it for the past eight years. It is geared towards the military. We have prayer and devotion,” she said.
Deason said seating for the anniversary celebration is limited. For information about tickets or the festivities, call 368-7335. Liberty Prayer Chapel is at 302 W. Memorial Drive in Hinesville.
