Give up? Go on!

Joseph of the Old Testament had a roller coaster ride of a life. Actually, to him it probably seemed like the “Bottomless Coaster” in the un-amusement park of life.

When one carefully counts his experiences, dividing them into positive and negative events, we find that he had twice as many negative experiences as positive. The negatives screamed out, “Give up!” The positives told him, “Go on!”

Joseph succeeded as the major player in God’s plan and purpose for His nation of Hebrews, saving millions of souls from cruel bondage by simply tuning out the “Give Ups” and cranking up the “Go Ons.”

About pastordonhaymon2

Senior Pastor Don Haymon II began his journey as a minister when he was raised in the home of the founder of Calvary Apostolic Church—his father. In 1986 he concluded a four-year internship under his father as associate pastor. It was at that time that he received his ordination certificate as a minister of the gospel. He married LaRonda Ellard, in 1992. He earned a bachelor of arts in Communication from the University of Denver the same year. In 1997, Don became senior pastor. In 2013 he graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Christian Leadership from Hope International University. Today, he is the passionate shepherd of Calvary Apostolic Church of Denver, guided by a compelling and true call of God. For those in his pastoral care, he seeks personal development and spiritual growth as a priority. His preaching and teaching has taken him around the world to at least 10 countries. Under his leadership, he has founded six churches in Burma. The challenge of communicating the Acts 2:38 gospel worldwide remains his heartbeat as well as the constant growth pattern of the local church in Denver. He and LaRonda are the parents of three grown children. They reside in Castle Rock, CO.
