Nick Park is a man who knows the value of perseverance. He and his team founded the Church of God in Ireland 21 years ago, and at the time they were treated by a Catholic dominated society as a dangerous cult. Earlier this month, Nick had two significant breakthroughs. He was invited by the Prime Minister to join Archbishops, the President and other national leaders at the National Commemoration (a event on live television to honor Ireland's military dead - similar to Memorial / Veterans Day in the US). At the same time, a pre-recorded service from Solid Rock Church of God was played on State-run national radio in the slot normally reserved for broadcasting Catholic Mass. After 21 years of asking, this is the first time a Church of God service has been broadcast nationally in our nation.
