LEWISTON — Doug Taylor, founder, director and senior pastor of the Pentecostal Kids’ Church Jesus Party for the past 14 years, and his assistant pastor, James Span, celebrating his first year of ministry, recently received ministerial credentials through the International Fellowship of Ministries based in Bothell, Wash.

Taylor was able to transfer his ordination from the North American Ministerial Association, after meeting requirements and standards of the group. Span was accepted as a licensed minister and will begin the one-year process of meeting requirements for ordination.

The Jesus Party is a nonprofit, faith-based organization reaching out to the needs of inner city children. The ministry is attempting to broaden its vision by expanding its reach into foreign missions.

Taylor and Span have been working to promote racial unity. In addition to working with children, they are involved in home, hospital and nursing home visitation as well as a correspondence ministry to individuals that are incarcerated.
