3 Years Since Our 1st Service!

Yesterday marked the three year anniversary of our first church service.

Our History:

Sovereign Joy Bible Study - 2007

God in His grace and providence has seen fit to bring together a people concerned with His glory above all things. Emilio Ramos and Jason Jesuroga (founding elders) felt the deep call of God to plant a biblical church in Keller, TX. Through a series of events God led both of these men out to Texas. Beginning with Emilio, sensing the call to move from California to Texas and to seek God for vision and future ministry. By faith, Emilio and his wife Trisha, moved to the Keller area. Immediately upon their move, Emilio began a small bible study (early 2007).

While meeting in a home and teaching through the book of John, God saw fit to grow the size of Sovereign Joy (then) Bible Study; taking the group from about eight to over fifty in less than a year. Pastor Jason, his wife Christina, and their four children were currently in Maine where Jay was pastoring a church for several years. God saw fit to bring Jay to Sovereign Joy and soon after, the church, Sovereign Joy Community Church (SJCC), was planted.

All glory and thanks be to God for what he has done in bringing numerous families and brethren together for the work of the ministry. Without giving all of the details of our testimony, constitution, and history (which would take up a book in it of itself) Sovereign Joy has had one sole vision since its infancy. Our desire is that God would be made much of in the world, through Biblically sound preaching, heartfelt worship, and a zealous passion to see the kingdom of God advanced in all the earth through outreach and evangelism.

The early days of Sovereign Joy - 2007

Our First Service 02/24/2008:

Our First Service

We opened up our very first worship service together as a church, by praying together to God, by song, for help. The song we sang was “Jesus, With Thy Church Abide” (and I [Jason Delgado] took the liberty to put the lyrics into first person so it makes it more of a prayer from the church to God). Listen below:

After worship through song, Pastor Emilio Ramos┬ápreached a message that placed God as the foundation, center, and focus for the church’s purpose and health. Listen or download:
