 "Telling people what they need to hear, not what they want to hear."
 The Masters House, founded by David Piercy,  celebrated their eight anniversary with a gathering of Masters’ House residents, graduates, supporters, friends and families, whocame together to offer praise for the ministry. The celebration was held at Love Valley Baptist Church in Kings Mountain on Saturday July 27th.
    After an opening prayer and the singing of “Amazing Grace” by Michael Lindsay, Assistant Pastor at Love Valley, David Piercy continued his unrelenting thanks to everyone present and to all those who support and believe in The Masters House program. He thanked God for the men who have been at the house. Over 350 men from all walks of life have passed through its doors. Some have been there several times, before committing themselves to seeking a path which “has always been there to welcome them.”
  Spencer Smith, a graduate of this uplifting program gave testimony. He is now Minister of students at Double Springs Baptist Church in Lattimore. He said: “...I was hiding from God. I was running away. I was being selfish. Now, I’m working for the Lord.” He credits The Masters House with guiding him and putting him on the proper path. He spent 13 months at The Masters House.  David is very proud of Spencer, for his help, his achievements and his new direction. He  said that Spencer Smith is another part of “God’s work.”
   Another young man, who had been in and out of the Program five times, offered these endearing words as he too gave testimony. Ron Bagwell could hardly contain himself as he related what The Masters House has meant and done for him. He now wants to become a preacher and “tell people what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.”
   The celebration embodied a collection of the grateful, the loving, the healing and the healed. The Masters House continues to save and raise money for a new 10 bedroom home. Last year they had raised $22,000. As they celebrated their eighth anniversary, David reported that they presently had $33,700. Their goal is $50,000 for a down payment. He said: “It’s always in God’s hands and He hasn’t disappointed us yet!”
   After presenting a “thank you” plaque to Scott and Tammy Greene for their tremendous support, David introduced Love Valley’s Pastor, Barry Philbeck. He congratulated Davld on The Master House’s achievements and wished him well in the future. “A lot of lives have been changed for the better because of The Masters House. No one of us can take the credit, it’s simply another example of God’s work!”
