Our 7 Fold Mission

Our 7 Fold Mission

CONNECT • MINISTER • SATISFY • ASSIST • STRENGTHEN • REASON • MEND

To Atheist and Agnostics:

As an agnostic or atheist, we understand that you have become skeptical of or have entirely rejected the claims of Christianity. We assume you have not come by this decision lightly or casually. Yet, we believe at Living Manna, we can provide a perspective that you may not have previously considered. We will never mock or talk down to you. We hope you will allow us to share why we believe that blind faith is very different from genuine faith and why the former easily leads to atheism while the latter is the key that unlocks many unanswered questions. You are welcomed here!

To the Oppressed, Injustice, and Those in Need:

We know that all too often, those who profess Christ ignore the authentic struggles some of you face daily in your communities. Here at Living Manna, we will pray for your situation, your struggle, and seek to practically help you and encourage others to do the same. We know that oppression and injustices are a very real problem, and we also believe that the Bible enables us to “seek justice” (Isaiah 1:17) and set captives free. You are welcomed here!

As you visit with us, we believe that you will find a difference in the bread served here; bread which will be life-changing. You are welcomed here!

To Those Who Are Weak in the Faith:

We know that many who have accepted Christ continue to struggle in their walk and maintain their Christian faith. It often feels like you’ve taken one step forward only to take three steps back.

Here at Living Manna, we believe that a deeper understanding of Righteousness by Faith will lead to a better and more consistent walk with Christ. We are dedicating ourselves to providing this deeper understanding through the Word of God so that you can experience victory in your life, regardless of the Spiritual struggle you may now be facing.

Respectfully, we would love to share with you why we believe what we believe regarding the word of God and invite you to consider the evidence. We will never talk down to you, about you, or mock your belief. You are welcomed here!

Power Wednesdays

w/ Terry Wade Sowell

Terry Wade Sowell
Feb. 26, 1966
Husband, Father, Musician, Prayer Warrior, Speaker
President: Blade of Hope (A Transitional Home for New Beginnings)

As the Prayer Ministry leader at Living Manna Church, it is my desire to encourage, motivate, instruct, and to come along side those who are seeking to know and experience the true power of prayer. It is our desire to restore the true biblical perspective of prayer which sees and understand it to be the “life-line” through which every true believer can tap into both the atmosphere and riches of heaven.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6).

“Come Search With Me” (An Invitation to Atheists, Agnostics, and World Religions)

w/ Dr. Subodh Pandit

Dr. Subodh Pandit was born and brought up in India amidst the great diversity of language, food, culture, dress and religion of that populated country. He completed medical studies and a specialty in Internal Medicine, receiving his medical degrees from both India and the USA. He taught medicine as an Assistant Professor at the University of Oklahoma, and then practiced Emergency Room medicine before his retirement.

Outside the field of medicine, one of his pet areas of research was in the metaphysical concepts of God and religion on the one hand, and science and reason on the other. He went on a long intellectual journey of inquiry, and used the material he had gathered to develop a seminar titled Come Search With Me. The topics addressed are , the existence of God, the Theory of Evolution, Relativism, Pluralism, and an original, unique method of comparing the five great world religions.
He has been presenting it primarily to mixed audiences on university campuses for nearly twenty year, and has been invited by student groups from five continents. Harvard, MIT, Duke, Georgia Tech, Michigan Tech, U of Florida, U of Kansas, U of Nebraska, U of Alabama, to name some in the USA. The most common response has been: “You sure made me think!!”

He has authored three books, has been interviewed on multiple radio stations and has been on TV programs around the world.

He presently lives in Maryland, USA.

About Pastor Ivor Myers

Pastor Ivor Myers was once part of four man hip hop group signed to EMI records in the early 1990’s. After an encounter one night that led to an impromptu Bible study, every thing changed for him and eventually led to him walking away from the industry. Pastor Myers has been teaching the word of God for the last 24 years and his passion for the word has only grown brighter over time. His innovative approach to Bible study, preaching, and ministry has led to this moment, the launching of a fully virtual online church, Living Manna.
