On the morning of December 20, 2017, Dr. Mattie Price, founder of Training to Reign Ministries was received into the presence of God. Her home-going celebration was held a few days later on December 28, 2017 at Resurrection Community Church in Albemarle, North Carolina with her nephew Pastor Michael Scott delivering the eulogy.
While in the Tucker Hospice House in Kannapolis, Dr. Mattie and I had a conversation concerning who she wanted to take over the reigns of Training to Reign Ministries at her passing. She indicated her desire was for me to take on that role. Having served as Interim Pastor in 2015-2016 during a medical sabbatical she took in order to undergo chemotherapy, and having also served, in her words, as “her apostle” I have provided encouragement, insight and prophetic direction to Dr. Mattie. She honored me and I, in turn honored her.
I await the instruction of the Lord concerning my future with Training to Reign Ministries and the future of the ministry itself, but as we await that instruction we will not be loitering, but about the Father’s business. I appreciate your prayers for me, my wife Adina, daughter Darian, and the family of Training to Reign Ministries. Also please remember Dr. Mattie’s daughter Dawn and her children and grandchildren. Much must be done in the next few weeks and months.
Dr. Ron Horner
