If you were a “fly on the wall” in the life of Gwen Shamblin, the founder of Weigh Down Ministries and the Remnant Fellowship Church, the first thing you would notice as you followed her around during a typical day would be that she is the GENUINE ARTICLE. She practices what she preaches and teaches. Her passionate love for GOD and for those who are seeking GOD…along with her amazing level of selflessness…truly are a wonder to witness. It has set an example for this generation and for the generations to come—for anyone who is a part of this Ministry and Church. There is a tireless, relentless, single-minded focus on the WILL of GOD that is universally recognized by anyone who spends even a little bit of time around her. Even the MEDIA that has interviewed and profiled Gwen over the years observes this and highlights it as a fact. The great men and women of GOD throughout history have made such an impact as well…leading by example. This wholehearted devotion…following in the beautiful footsteps of Jesus Christ…stands out to the world, and it has been the foundation for this Ministry and Church throughout the history of both. That is quite a standard to set!
Now what you ALSO would notice during your time as a “fly on the wall” would be that there are specific Staff members in this place who are delightfully following in those footsteps as their job opportunities have them working closely with Gwen. One such person has dedicated herself to emulating that example…and to helping Gwen get out her Spirit-led, inspired words to the world in multiple formats for many years now…and she is our February 2014 Staff Member of the Month. Join with us in congratulating a dedicated, hard-working, committed-to-GOD Saint—Erin Moore! Since hearing this message as a young college student nearly 15 years ago, Erin is a perfect example of someone who heard the message and RAN with it…without ever looking back…and GOD has blessed her and her marriage and family as a result of it. Both Erin and her husband Colin came to this Church in its first year, and they have been committed to it ever since. They were only the third couple to be united in marriage (December of 2002) since this Church was founded in 1999. And they, along with their son Harrison, have been a foundational family throughout the earliest stages of this Church and its continued growth to this day.
Erin is blessed with an incredible ability to FOCUS on the tasks at hand, and she has been a valuable assistant to Gwen throughout her time here with this Ministry and Church. People in this generation who are committed to the SMALL DETAILS are a RARE find! But Erin excels at these things. And she does all of this in a very quite, humble, unassuming way. She isn’t looking for recognition or attention. She just wants to see Gwen’s vision realized…the purpose and destination for these materials and these inspired words…GOD’S will to be done here on Earth as it is in Heaven. With that as a backdrop, Erin’s skills with this Ministry and Church are put to tremendous and helpful use here as she is involved in these and MANY more tasks:
This is just a brief summary of what Erin is involved in, and the list could go on and on, but you get the idea. This is someone who is committed to getting the Truth out, and she is a hugely valuable member of this Staff. Here are just a few comments from fellow Staff members about their honor in working alongside Erin:
It’s fun to give praise to GOD for Saints who set an exceptional example! Gwen always has made a point to lift up those who demonstrate these Heavenly qualities. After all, this truly is “all about GOD,” and when we thank Him for the gifts He has given to His people, it gives HIM all of the praise! Congratulations to Erin, Colin, and Harrison, and we look forward to more Truth getting out as a result of Gwen’s diligent and determined drive to make GOD known to the world!
