This Day’s Thought was started in January of 2000 with its mission being to offer Christian encouragement and inspiration to those in need. The ministry is administered by Greg Potzer & Eric Elder with the significant help from many volunteers.
The seeds for this ministry were planted some 40 years ago, when Greg, as an avid reader, started to save helpful thoughts and quotations on 3×5 cards per his mother’s suggestion. This collection now serves as the foundation from which that segment of each day’s message prayerfully begins.
This Day’s Thought, This Day’s Verse (from varying Bible versions) and an occasional This Day’s Smile are all contained in one e-mail that we deliver, Monday through Friday. On Sunday, we send This Week’s Sermon, shared by Eric Elder of The Ranch Fellowship.
In September of 2012, This Day’s Thought merged with The Ranch Fellowship, to become unified in their joint mission of serving the Lord. Afer working so well together for so many years, Eric Elder and Greg Potzer decided they could function even more effectively joining their ministries and now serve under the umbrella of The Ranch Fellowship (a ministry of Eric Elder Ministries). Both This Day’s Thought and The Ranch Fellowship are registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, and all gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
