My guest, Pastor Erick W. Hoskin, Sr. is the Senior Pastor and Founder of the Word of God Christian Fellowship Church in Cypress, Texas, where he is known for his heart, humor, and clear presentation of the Gospel. Since its launching in 2010, The Word Church of Cypress, as it is known, has grown from eight (8) members in Pastor Hoskin’s home to over 1000 members and three Sunday services. Under his leadership, The Word has impacted the community through charitable acts, including its partnership with the Houston Food Bank, providing food for families during the pandemic. A yearly backpack and clothing giveaway, Christmas Angel Tree, which benefits residents of a local apartment complex the church adopted, and its “Gas on God” Campaign, where WOCGF has sponsored over $6000 worth of gasoline to residents in the Cypress area. Besides his role at The Word, in 2022, Pastor E accepted the role of Admission Advisor for Grace School of Theology. He also serves as the Chaplain for the Mu Mu Nu chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity.

Pastor E is also the author of “The Waiting Season: What To Do When God Has You In A Holding Pattern.” God has put a dream in your heart—for your future, your family, your finances, or a dynamic ministry—and now you are ready to step forward in faith to bring that dream to fruition. Or, are you? Inexplicably, God gave you a divine call and then seemed to disappear, leaving you in a holding pattern. You may be wondering what’s next as you wait for Him to come through on His promises. Purchase here:
