In 1997 during the movement of Bolton Crusade Ministry in Kansas City, Mo. under the Founder and leadership of Rev. L. W. Bolton, Jr. And Lady Effie Bolton there was a call to organize a local worship ministry. This ministry was birthed and named, It Is Written Evangelistic Ministry. By-Laws, Tax ID number and Corporation Seal were established with the state of Missouri.
Many were added to the membership roll. The ministry was effectively equipped with Ministerial Assistant and Ministers, Evangelists, Deacons, Trustees, Officials, Music Ministry, Gate Keepers, Bus Ministry, Nurses and Armor Bearers, Youth Ministry, Daycare, Sunday and Bible School and other Institutional Training. Before settling in its permanent place of worship at 5800 E. 35th Terrace Kansas City Mo, some of the locations where the ministry worshipped were: Saint Paul Baptist Church, Jesus Is The Way Ministry, Southeast High School, and others.
After pastor Bolton was consecrated to the office of Bishop, the ministry began to shift to greater assignments. In 2012, through much prayer and consultation, the ministry's name was changed to Another Chance Evangelical Ministry. Minister Tellis Bolton became Pastor Elect of the ministry. Bishop Bolton's Assignment relocated he and lady Bolton to Hattiesburg Ms. In 2013 Pastor Elect Tellis Bolton was Installed as pastor & Evangelist Elaine Jackson was placed as Assistant Pastor.
Before being elevated to pastor the ministry, Pastor Tellis was chosen to be the youth pastor and his wife also worked along his side as a youth leader for three years. While dutifully serving as youth leaders, they, along with the assistance of other youth workers, built a successful youth ministry called Youth Quake. Countless youth accepted Christ as their savior and they were taught how it's ok to be young, relevant, respectful, and still be soldiers for the Lord. In July of 2012, while still under the leadership of his father Bishop Bolton, pastor Tellis was elected to take over as Senior pastor as Bishop & Lady Effie made their transition back to their hometown of Hattiesburg, MS. Pastor Tellis served as pastor-elect for one year until he was officially ordained as pastor of Another Chance Ministries in July of 2013. Since then, Pastor Tellis has focused the ministry on dealing with the "whole man" by teaching on relationship with the Lord, which he believes in turn will translate into healthier homes, communities and churches.
Under the divine leadership of God and our Pastor, Tellis E. Bolton, who has the heart of a shepherd, Another Chance Evangelistic Deliverance Ministries is dedicated to seeing lost souls saved, God's word taught and applied, and it's members prosper and be in good health, as stated in our covenant read each Sunday morning.
