The appreciation I want to express for my Pastor, Stephen Rodrigues and his family, can not be spoken in just mere words. He has shown me the hope and love like no other thru our Lord Jesus Christ. He has shown not just me and my family, but everyone that has ever been to our church, the immeasurable love and security that you can get from only GOD. He is a true leader in the Christian Community and faith that sacrifices continually day after day for his church and family. He never stops showing how much he appreciates everyone in the church for everything they do in and out of the church and reminds us all the time about how much GOD loves on us. He teaches and preaches with such enthusiasm and strength that you can't help but feel the Holy Spirit surround everyone that is listening.

Pastor Steve and his whole family are the most amazing people I have and ever will meet on the Earth. I just want to express how much you are all very much loved and how awesome of a job you are doing! You are all truly a gift from GOD!

My wonderful, amazing, loving, blessed, (etc.) Pastor!
by: Amy Gomez

It's hard to put into words how I feel about Pastor. There are so many things to say about him that it's difficult to sum it up in a few words. I've known Pastor for maybe 6 or 7 years now and I'm so thankful to God for bringing him and his family into my life. I have learned so much from this man. The very first time I visited his church I was amazed with his preaching and his passion and how he always kept my attention and focus. He has always treated me well, prayed for me, concerned for me like I'm his own daughter. He is like a second father to me, his family is like a second family to me, and his daughter Nicole is like the sister I never had and always wanted. I love my Pastor and his family for improving my relationship with God which in return has blessed me in many, many ways.

Thank you Pastor for all that you do! You are an AMAZING person!

Pastor Steve is an Amazing guy, I thank god everyday for using such a wonderful man to do his work. If it wasn't for pastor then I don't know where I would be at this time. God did me the biggest favor by pushing me into the path of pastor Steve. He has helped me and my family so many times and i just wanted to thank him for that. Like pastor said one communion " i love everyone, but not everyone can come to the table" That is so true and he taught me that we can love who ever we want to love but it's our duty to god and to the people we love to bring them to god and show them how god does love them and then they can someday come to the table. Pastor has taught me how to look at the world in a whole new way and taught me that everyone deserves a second chance, also that God will always be there for you no matter what happens. So I thank god every day for sending me into such a wonderful church family and for sending such a wonderful man to help reach the people of new bedford. We love you pastor Steve thank you for doing all that you do.

Pastor is Awesome!
by: Michelle

Pastor is AWESOME! Always encouraging, always easy to talk to and always there to answer ANY question one might have! A strong man of faith and a reminder that our hope in God is all we will ever need! He is great with the younger crowd-bridging the gap that I've seen in other churches that can make it harder for new and young believers to continue to press on! Everyone knows that all are welcome at Antioch!!
