SENIOR ADULT MINISTRY
SALT, which is our Senior Adult Ministry, here at First Assembly of God, stands for Senior Adults Living Triumphantly. The ministry for seniors is led by Rev. Tom and Thelma Estes, who were former Pastors of First Assembly of God.
They came to Fairland, elected as Pastors of this church in February of 1981 at the age of 34 years old, and as an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. Brother and Sister Estes spent 14 years pastoring in Fairland until they resigned in 1995, going to Ponca City, OK to pastor Glad Tidings Assembly of God. In the year 2000, they assumed the pastorate of Mannsville Assembly of God in Southern Oklahoma where they worked until retiring in May 2013.
Moving back to Fairland was like coming home, and they are thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead the Senior Adult Ministry, many of which are ‘Old Friends,’ whom they love dearly. Brother and Sister Estes, and all of the SALT team, want to extend open arms to all senior adults in our area to come and join us in Triumphant Living.
