Pennsylvania has been known as the keystone state since the early 1800’s. The word “keystone” comes from architecture and refers to the central, wedge-shaped stone in an arch, which holds all the other stones in place. The application of the term “Keystone State” to Pennsylvania cannot be traced to any single source. We do know that Pennsylvania played a key role in the formation of the original thirteen colonies.
As the coming of the Lord nears, we are sensing that once again Pennsylvania is in the middle of what God is doing. Revival and church growth is breaking out all across this beautiful state, yet many of our cities remain without an Apostolic voice. We are praying the Lord of the harvest would send forth laborers into the fields of Pennsylvania for the harvest is ready.
Thank you for looking toward Pennsylvania.
Rev. Jerry K. Tipton,
PA District Superintendent
