Community Church

Kirtland Bethel Bible Church is an independent bible church in Kirtland, Ohio, the home of Joseph Smith’s second stopping point.

“Having Jay in for a 4-day conference on the cults was very informative and helpful to our congregation. He has done his homework and can be a great asset in helping any local church understand the beliefs of various cults with the purpose of being able to more effectively share the Gospel with them. His humor makes his presentations enjoyable to listen to. As Pastor, I received nothing but positive feedback from my people about Jay’s ministry with us. I would commend Jay and his ministry to any local church that is concerned about reaching other religions/cults with the Gospel.”
