Fifteen-Year-Old Preaches at Church





QUOTE: "The audience was focused on her. She was not speaking as a teenager, but as an adult who was very sensitive to the Holy Spirit of God." —Bishop Darrell Gooden, describing the first time he heard Perri Costley, a 15-year-old girl, preach to his congregation. Gooden was so impressed that he invited Costley to speak at an international conference for more than 200 ministers. Gooden expects the teenager to make some errors as she grows, but wants to give her opportunities because he knows that “God is going to use her.” [ajc.com, 3/15/10]
