Welcome to Joint Heirs Gospel Magazine (JHGM). I am Erica H. Hitson the CEO/Founder of JHGM. I speak for everyone involved in writing or producing this magazine when I say thank you to Jesus for allowing us to bring this vision to fruition. I also say thank you to you readers for supporting us in our work.
It was seven years ago when the vision was brought before me by the Holy Spirit, that we three sisters should do the will of our father in heaven and to accomplish his work by starting JHGM. Joint Heirs came from the book of Romans 8:17 “And if children, then heirs; heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.’ This is the name that the Lord gave me when he brought the vision before me.
My life has been a journey leading to this destination. Prior to founding this magazine, I worked in the Real Estate Market for six years since 2009 before placing my license in inactive status. Before that, I was a Hair Stylist for over sixteen years, owning my very first salon at the age of twenty-two. I worked in the Dental field briefly as a Dental Assistant. I am a licensed ordained Minister- Prophetess, and have been spreading the Gospel since the age of 19. Ministry is my passion, and calling it gives me such a Joy! That joy is expressed in two ways, through Joint Heirs Gospel Magazine, and my family. I have a beautiful Daughter Jerrica, and an equally beautiful granddaughter named Madisyn four years old.
What makes us different? Souls are our ultimate goal and our concern. Because we believe and know that GOD is not in a box, and that He’s not just in one particular area, state, nation, city, or country. JHGM will feature gifts, talents, and callings from inside and outside of the walls of the church building. We will tell the stories of ministers, pastors, musicians, athletes, actors and people from all walks of life.
How does publishing JHGM make me feel? No words can express how it makes me feel to not only Publish my very first Gospel Magazine, but to also be a African American – Black female and to accomplish something that only GOD could have allowed me to do, and to God be All the glory. It makes me feel like Great inside but yet with humbleness all at the same time, and I can say this (speak) on behalf of my sister Kimberly Williams as well.
… Gospel Music is a Ministry as well. We also believe that It’s another platform that God uses to minister into the lives of His people. We all have our own individual testimonies. We’ve all made mistakes, but we serve an amazing God. He is loving and forgiving. With the Joint Heirs Gospel Magazine, let us celebrate all the good things that God’s people are doing.
For by being brought together, we are much stronger than when we are apart in the Body of Christ. As is said in Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. I desire to continue on working in the vineyard. He begun a good work in each of us and He promised us that He will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Join the Joint Heirs in our mission and please share your ideas with our team.
This magazine is for all of us.
