The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

– Jesus Christ in John 10:10 NKJV

Remembering Community Christian Center Garden City, Idaho

Pastor Tom Blackburn was the pastor of the Community Christian Center for 39 years in Garden City Idaho. This website serves in part to remember that ministry and the impact it had on so many lives and not just in Garden City Idaho. Pastor Tom and his ministry preached the word of God and obeyed his direction to go much farther and meet their needs.

Pastor Tom Blackburn A Life of Dedication to the Lord

The story began in the mind of God but was manifested on earth in 1947. The church, the school and the soup kitchen no longer reside at the 202 E 42nd street, but the ministry continues every day and will forever march on in the hearts and minds of so many. The profound impact of God’s word sewn into service, compassion and love to just one person’s life is like a ripple on the water that will pay forward for countless generations. The true impact will never be known on earth, while you can always count the amount of seeds in an apple, you can never count the number of apples in a seed.
