Our Leaders


Greetings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ,

We at Sanctuary Of Praise Church Of God In Christ, are pleased to inform you that we are still lifting up a standard for the Lord here in Springfield, Missouri. In October 2013, the Lord blessed our church to move into a new facility where the praises of God are still going forth mightily. And because of our praise, captivity is captivated, those bound and bruised are being liberated, sicknesses are eradicated, addictions are eliminated, Jesus Christ is emulated, and Jehovah God is celebrated. We are proud to say that we are a lively church, and we stand on the age-old principle that says, “When praises go up, blessings come down.” This church has been established out of the long and rich heritage of Timmons Temple Church Of God In Christ; a ministry which stood as a beacon of light and hope for many people in this community for more than 81 years. And today we can say that the presence of the Lord still reigns, and the traditions upon which this church was founded, continue to be the rock upon which it stands. As such, God continues to bless us, and we continue to offer him thunderous sacrifices of praise.

Mother Appleby and I departed from Durham, North Carolina, and came to Springfield in February 2003. We immediately joined in with the Timmons Temple family, and over the years, we have watched an awesome move of God. We may have missed the spirit-filled glorious days of this church’s past, but we are certainly enjoying the glorious good times we are having now at Sanctuary Of Praise. If you don’t believe me, I invite you to come and just try to sit still through our Sunday morning worship. We give him our all in praise because we recognize him to be an awesome and mighty God. We have come to trust and depend on him so much until our adopted motto is “God Can, and God Will.” We know he can do anything, in any situation, under any circumstance, and we believe he will do what we ask if we only believe. If you are unable to join us at our sanctuary, we ask that you pray for us in our efforts to be a light shining out of darkness; providing a ray of hope for those who have lost their way. We pray God’s blessings upon each of you, and upon the Sanctuary Of Praise family.

Your Servants in The Lord,

T. J. & Anitra Appleby
Pastor and First Lady
