Pastor Milton Shelby was born and raised on the south side of Chicago.  In 1973 he began to attend services and classes at Spiritual Temple of Truth Non-Denominational Church where he developed a strong personal relationship with the Lord.  Because of his hunger and thirst for the Word of God his oratorical skills, his ability to explain God’s Word, and his ability to demonstrate universal principals, he was often asked to teach a class or bring a message during Sunday Service.  Hungry and thirsty for more of God’s Word and an even stronger relationship with Him, Pastor Shelby went on to further his spiritual education by attending The Chicago Baptist Institute, The Johnnie Coleman Institute of Higher Learning and Unity Church of Evanston. In 1981 God called Pastor Shelby into the ministry.  With his mother by

From The Pastor’s Desk The Spiritual Falculty For The Month of June is:                           “DIVINE WILL”
God Bless You Rev. Milton Shelby
Divine Will or Gods will is different from mans will. There’s an old saying “where there’s a will there’s a way”. When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane he said “Lord if it be thy will take this bitter cup from me, but not my will thy will be done.  As we go forward in life we are going to have some difficult challenges every now and then. As my spiritual mother always say, all God wants for you is Good. In Jeremiah 29:11 He says: for I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 3rd John 2:2 says, Beloved, above all things I wish that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prosper. So if it’s your desire to be healthy with a sound mind and the full activities of your limbs, if it is your desire to be financially secure and spiritually whole, be assured that it is God’s Will for you. So release your will, allow His Will to take control of your life and then,                         “WATCH YOUR BLESSINGS FLOW”
