Touch of Joy Ministries is a Christian ministry in Lucedale, Mississippi.
Our mission is to be a catalyst for racial reconciliation and denominational cooperation through building relationships and by community service. We endeavor to increase the awareness of the need to heal the wounds of racism through the love of Jesus Christ.
We are called to be a “Watchman on the Wall” ( Isaiah 21:6, Ezekiel 3:17, 2Kings 9:17-18 ) of the coming paradigm shift.
The minister of Touch of Joy, Rev. Dick Trosclair (“Brother Dick”), is a retired pastor (if there is such) of the Interdenominational Church Fellowship of Joy, located on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay. He attended Liberty Bible College in Pensacola, Florida; was and is licensed and ordained by International Gospel Outreach, Semmes, Alabama.
If the sermons on this website read and sound like he is speaking to a radio audience, it is because he is speaking to his radio audience as he records them.
If you are new to the site, and are a Christian brother or sister, may we say welcome to the family reunion. To those who do not know our Lord Jesus personally, please join us here in getting to know the joy of His love through His Word.
If you have been blessed by any of these messages, please remember to thank the Lord, for they are His messages.
Since 2001 our ministry has been primarily a radio broadcast ministry serving southeastern Mississippi. We broadcast every Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m. Central Time on WRBE out of Lucedale, MS.
We believe the Scripture’s teaching that “The Joy of the Lord is your Strength,“ (Nehemiah 8:10), and that laughter is “marrow (refreshment) to the bone”. We know that Christ could not attract the little children to His lap without a smile and a gleam in His eye. From this comes Touch of Joy Ministry. Light-hearted stories add humor in many sermons while supporting the message.
Jesus told stories to help us hear his messages. We call them parables.
Under the guidance and supervision of our Board of Directors, we provide:
- Materials for ramp construction for disabled persons
- Transportation to caregivers of disabled persons
- A/C window units for needy elderly persons
- Mortgage assistance for unemployed people
- Assistance to blind people
- Temporary food and lodging for the poverty-stricken
- Transportation of indigents to health care facilities
- Gasoline for stranded families
These are frequently done in conjunction with other local Social Service Organizations.
I’ll close this introduction with the same benediction I close each sermon: America, bless God; and God will bless America.
Rev. Dick Trosclair
